    Default CdeG Monocle Scent Two: Laurel

    Slated for an autum release, as written up in the July 2009 issue of Monocle:

    “inspired by a trip to the Bekaa Valley, it’s a fresh clean scent that has warm laurel notes. Developed by the same team that launched our Hinoki scent, it will remind regular visitors to Lebanon of the country’s hand-made Laurel soaps and fragrant gardens in Byblos”.

    The accompanying picture shows the same bottle as Hinoki but with a white label and a silver cap. I can't find any other information on it yet nor pictures I can upload. If anyone else can, please post here!
    THE BEST OF 2009 to date Maison Francis Kurkdjian Lumiere Noire Pour Homme, Cologne Pour Le Soir, Annick Goutal Mandragore Pourpre

    REDISCOVERING CLASSICS - AGAIN!:- , Guerlain Derby, L'Artisan Premier Figuier

    I wondered when Hinoki was named 'scent one' if there really would be a Monocle series, and this answers that question. Count me among the eager.

    This write-up made me LESS excited about it (some bad words were used). But I will still try it.....

    I now have another thing to look forward to along with Terre d'Hermes Extrait. Looks like its shaping up to be an interesting fall of new releases.

    I love laurel leaves, this could be great if they don't drown it in cedar. The smell of Lebanon is a wonderful idea, but Lebanon and cedar always go hand in hand, don't they? Hmmm.....

    I am looking forward to smelling this one too.
    I hope the bottle isn't a leaky piece of shit like the first one!

    OMG - that's even better news!

    I do love laurel. We had a laurel wreath for Christmas a few years ago, and it was amazingly good.

    I hear you on the leaky bottle, ajmc. Let's NOT have a repeat on that one!

    Exactly what I thought Ruggles! I also hope, on the other hand they don;t drown it into something like the laurel-reglisse coughdrop that Guerlain released some time ago...

    I'm looking forward to trying it too. I think I may be one of the only people to dislike Hinoki. It's just too damn photorealistic and linear. Why do I want to smell like a fresh log? Hopefully I like this one more.

    I'm not a fan of the original Hinoki either, instant headache for me.

    The website says In Stock, however if you try to add it to the online Shopping Cart it produces an Out Of Stock message. Glitch in their site, I'm guessing.

    I think it's showing that because it's only available for pre-order. So you can continue checkout and then wait for availability.

    I spoke to the LA Monocle store today, and they still do not have this in stock.

    Octavion @ 1000 Fragrances gave it a thumbs up: http://1000fragrances.blogspot.com/2...scent-two.html

    Woo Hoo!

    I'm a huge fan of bay leaf in fragrances. An interpretation of the whole tree could be very cool. Honestly, the description and notes make it sound a little old-hat for CDG, but I don't care. Honestly, it could be nothing but bay leaf and Iso E Super and I'd probably love it...

    How long until the reviews come rolling in? I've put myself on a sample-buying hiatus, so I'm counting on everyone else here for reports!

    The guy who runs the now names "W2" store in Glasgow emailed me to say he now has Laurel in stock. If I get a chance I'll pop in and give it a try.

    I am certain I saw this in Hamburger Hof in Germany about 4 weeks ago. I admired the packaging.
    Had I known it was an imminent new release I would most certainly have tried it.
