    Hugh Parsons
    Blue
    (aka Traditional)
    (1998)

    Top Notes: Lemon, Mandarin, Blackberry
    Middle Notes: Pepper, Angelica, Cardamom, Juniper
    Base Notes: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Ambergris

    A refreshing, masculine, tonic fragrance. It is characterized by spicy and green/herbal notes, with citrus and fruit in the top note and a woody-ambery base. I first encountered this scent a few years ago and took it on a trip to Hawaii with me. At that time, I was very struck by the juniper, angelica and spice notes, which along with the citrus, put me very much in mind of gin and tonic. Ever since that time, I have always associated this scent with the Islands and with the cocktail hour. I think these are pretty good associations for a fragrance, so I can't help but think highly of it.

    Escada - Magnetism

    Lots of pink pepper and tolu balsam in this, along with some kind of thin synthetic jasmine like note and/or myrrh. (I don't mean thin as a bad thing here - the other notes add the fullness while the jasmine isolate (or similar synthetic) offers the kind of grape like note, I believe.)

    I'm liking it quite a bit!

    Quite a transformation from top to heart notes in this frag. The leathery heart is impressive.

    F by Ferragamo pH Black

    This is one underrated, relatively uncelebrated but BEAUTIFUL frag. Black-peppered, tonka-sweetened leather. Calls to mind Jil Sander's Man Absolute (its tonka for JL's vanilla).

    I haven't done this on this thread before, but i strongly recommend sampling this unsung beauty.

    I try another full wearing today with 5 spritzes, including two to the undershirt. My nose still can't detect much even from the beginning. Most likely have to let go this one.

    This is another EDP that kind of disappoints me, but at least I don't have to sink to nose so deep to smell it.

    On my walk home last night I caught the scent of the first roses of the year and wanted to wear some today:

    Washington Tremlett Black Tie

    There are arguably more quality rose scents out there than any other note. Rose has certainly been one of the notes perfumers have used from almost the beginning. The British perfumer Washington Tremlett released Black Tie in 2007 and in many ways it feels like many other rose scents out there but yet somehow manages to feel unique. As I wear Black Tie I am reminded of many other scents I've tried. At the top Black Tie starts with a lovely saffron and sage accord. The saffron is reminiscent of both Czech & Speake Dark Rose and L'Artisan Safran Troublant. As this moves into the heart a rose geranium mix takes over. Again this reminds me of the other Czech & Speake, No. 88 as well as Domenico Caraceni 1913. The base is a mix of sandalwood, vanilla, musk, and patchouli but it comes off with a strong agarwood character to my nose and that makes Black Tie very reminiscent of many of the Montale Aoud scents. When a reviewer is mentioning other scents from other Houses one could take that as a sign that the scent being reviewed is maybe not so good or original. Actually the opposite is true. The fact that Black Tie calls to mind a number of scents that I like is a good thing. Black Tie has taken many of the things that work best in those scents and fused them all here into a beautiful whole. In many ways Black Tie sort of feels like a "greatest hits" musical compilation for my nose. One that I'll enjoy "listening" to over and over.

    Have a Worthy Wednesday everyone.

    Serge Lutens : Ambre Sultan (1993)



    A sensual and impulsive amber.

    Composition : Amber, Resins, Patchouli, Angelica roots
    Also known as : The Oriental one
    Character traits : Daring, Classical, Sophisticated

    “The creation of Ambre Sultan was inspired by a piece of amber offered as a gift to Serge Lutens on his first journey to Marrakech in 1968. For several years, Serge Lutens kept the precious gift in a burr thuya box. Over time, the two became inextricably one…” AMBRE SULTAN reveals the intriguing combination of these two elements. An essence that embodies to perfection the art of perfume-making by Serge Lutens.
