    I bought a few bottles from scentemental's massive sell-off and one of them was one I've been wanting to try for a long time:

    Carlo Corinto Vetyver

    It is said, on Wikipedia, that vetiver is present in 90% of western perfumes. For a note that is so widely present it is always surprising to me how versatile it is as an ingredient. As I write this I think of all of the different vetivers I've tried and how they are distinctly vetiver-focused. The best of them manage to find a style and sensibility to call their own and to stand apart from the crowd. So it is with Carlo Corinto Vetyver which first appeared in the 1980's. This is not the same scent which is currently being sold as Carlo Corinto Vetiver the spelling lets you know it is the original version. The newer version is nice, the original version is spectacular. The top is classic lavender and citrus but it only lasts for a little while as the vetiver comes to the fore quickly and takes over the proceedings. The vetiver accord here is a cross between the sweet version present in Guerlain Vetiver and the smoky version present in Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire. When I say cross that's what I mean in that it never reaches the sweetgrass feel of Guerlain or the campfire smokiness of Extraordinaire. Instead in Vetyver it is more like walking through a field of newly growing vetiver in the spring that still has some remnant of the fall burn lurking about. This mix of smoky and sweet is what makes Vetyver a real stand-out for me. The base is a strong hairy-chested sandalwood which is to be expected from a scent that was born in the powerhouse 80's. For those who want a strong masculine vetiver-based scent, with longevity and sillage, Vetyver is very likely the scent you are looking for. This is a sophisticated, thinking man's kind of scent. Too bad Carlo Corinto has chosen to dumb this down and release it as Vetiver these days.

    Have a Tricky Thursday everyone.

    Wafting bittersweet chocolate, a touch of juicy fruit/florals and sandalwood today: Mat Chocolat by Masaki Matsushima.

    Mat Chocolat notes: Top notes of black currant, grapefruit, watermelon and rose; middle notes - dark chocolate and cacao; base notes - sandalwood, coconut and musk.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Yup, when you get a bottle like this, and has more of that melon note, you have a winner. My luck, the last couple of bottles, the melon is not there, or you have to pick it out, so I have given up. But that one bottle where it was at the forefront, I got so many compliments on it. That is the only reason I kept hoping to repeat the magic.

    There's something in the heart notes that isn't sweet, pretty, or anything else popular ... a dark, slightly bitter, aromatic sap or resin that just gets better every time I wear it.

    For some reason, Hamptons suits cloudy days well.
