Sous le Vent
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.

Yr good bud,

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..."

Looking for a sample of Gucci Envy Me.
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!
