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
ELdO Encens et Bubblegum

Cuir Pleine Fleur
Top Notes: Violet, Bergamot
Middle Notes: Acacia, Hawthorn, Suede
Base Notes: Birch, Atlas Cedar, Vetiver
"Cuir pleine fleur" is the French term for the highest quality leather. This scent is really quite a good leather, using birch and suede notes carry the leather impression, and supplementing and supporting them with rather green-tinged florals (violet and mimosa). Vetiver in the base gives this a good anchor for longevity and a decent sillage. It is really rather captivating, recalling somewhat such famous and classic suede-leather scents as Tabac Blond and Cabochard. A definite keeper!

(Zagara - for anyone who might be wondering, is Neroli (or Orange Blossom) ...
And it comes as a 20% extrait. .... (And I might add that Dr.Vranges "Vetiver e Poivre" (Pepper) is almost even better !

Vintage Antaeus. And it's wonderful.
The newer version is an OK approximation, but lacks most of the depth and richness of the original. If I had never worn the original, I probably would've been satisfied with the reformulation.
Serge Noire, again. Trying to decide if it's FBW.
I think 10ml or so of this scent would last me a loooong time, so I don't really think I need a full bottle. TPC's 8ml price is a bit ridiculous, though.

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..."
