Happy Birthday to the Birthday Trio; Taolady, VM I Hate Civet & KiatBkk!! I hope you all have a well-scented day.
It seems winter wanted to take one last bow before exiting stage left as it is downright cold at Stately Somerville Manor this morning. Therefore I need to grab some roses.
Czech & Speake #88
Are there floral scents that are masculine? There are certainly men who can wear floral scents but is there a floral scent out there that any man can wear? There are probably many but I would gues that at the top of many colognoisseur's list would be the 1981 creation of John Stephen, Czech & Speake #88. What is remarkable about Czech & Speake #88 is that out of seven listed notes only three are non-floral and to my nose I don't really smell two of them. This is a highly skilled composition which mix a number of floral notes in a very muscular style. The top comes across first with geranium, there is supposed to be bergamot here but I never get any hint of that. In many ways geranium comes off as a lighter rose and that leads perfectly into the heart as rose does take over. This gives the effect of a slowly ripening rose accord as you move from top to heart. Just as the rose begins to recede in comes a mix of cassie and frangipani to keep things on the deeper side. The scent finishes off with a huge slug of sanadalwood and the mix of the rose and sandalwood is marvelous. This last part of the scent, the mix of rose and sandalwood, lasts for a very long time and it is what you take away from a day of wearing this scent. So go ahead guys while you might not put a flower in your hair, spraying some Czech & Speake on your skin is not so scary.
Have a Trippy Thursday everyone.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
