    Default S o t D, Thursday, 4 June 2009

    Guerlain
    Sous le Vent
    (1933)

    Top Notes: Basil, Bergamot, Galbanum, Lavender
    Middle Notes: Clove, Jasmine, Tarragon, Carnation
    Base Notes: Oakmoss, Iris, Woods, Patchouli

    The scent starts out very fresh: dry citrus, herbal, very green. It becomes subtly floral, the jasmine not predominating (but boosting the floral side of the lavender a bit); the carnation contributes a clove-like spicy freshness, and then there's some more green. The iris comes on as slightly earthy, but never chases away the green theme; and the woody notes give it depth and a certain roundness. It has a decent sillage and longevity for an EdT, but doesn't project especially far. Hug someone, though, and they're sure to notice.

    Not going to be wearing anything since I will be working in my darkroom today, which leaves me smelling like chemicals. (Any photographer here familiar with the awful stench of stop baths and fixxer?)

    Guerlain's HABIT ROUGE, Eau de Toilette

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme - L'Instant d'un Été - the grapefruit note is really well chosen as a contrast to the sweet base, but it all ends in a bit too much cold patchouli to be really gorgeous for me - it's actually a bit too butch for my taste... Edit: Have decided that it's really lovely after all!
