    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

    Chevignon
    Chevignon Brand
    (1992)

    Top Notes: Artemisia, Basil, Bergamot, Caraway, Juniper Berries, Green Note
    Middle Notes: Thyme, Carnation, Rose, Geranium, Lily of the Valley, Jasmine
    Base Notes: Patchouli, Oakmoss, Amber, Musk, Leather, Cedar

    This is listed as a woody or leather chypre, depending on the source. It is an example of the 1980's style surviving into the early '90s. Lots of people swear this is a ringer for the discontinued Polo Crest; I wouldn't know. To me, this is a blast from the past as a men's scent. The notes, spice, green/herbal, and citrus in the top note; mostly floral in the heart; and wood, moss, and leather in the base, are archetypal for the genre and period. It reminds me of the days when we called such things "Way cool," and so it still is.

    Resampling L'Artisan Timbuktu.

    I last wore this about a year ago and didn't think much of it. Lately I've been looking for a dry scent that evokes the desert (L'Air doesn't, for me). I'm liking this more than I did last time but it is still a bit.. bland, I guess. Seems to have me on the edge of a headache, too.

    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..."

    Wanted something rich today.

    Thierry Mugler B*Men

    How does an artist know that they've finished? It must be a painstaking process to finally let your creation go out the door without adding one more thing to it or making that subtle change that will elevate it from good to transcendent. In the perfume world I think Jacques Huclier has been doing this ever since he let A*Men out the door in 1996 as he has now taken four more attempts at slightly tweaking the formula of A*Men. In 2004 he was joined by Christine Nagel and made the first attempt in creating B*Men. I think this initital attempt was to make something more subtle or more of an everyday version of A*Men. Certainly while B*Men is no shrinking violet it isn't the powerhouse that A*Men is. The top of B*Men starts off with the same sweetness present in A*Men but there is a more muted quality to it as the fruit notes come off with a lighter sweetness. The big difference happens in the heart as a strong redwood note is paired with a mix of light spices. The basic progression is the same as in M. Huclier's original creation but it instead moves in a different direction. The same can be said of the base as in B*Men it has the same kind of warmth but it is provided by amber instead of the strong gourmand notes that are present in A*Men. I have been spending a lot of time comparing and contrasting A*Men to B*Men and I think that's appropriate because it is readily apparent that these two scents share the same parentage. I also think it will be the rare colognoisseur that will need to have both of these in their wardrobe. It will really be a matter of personal preference which one of these will make it into your personal collection of scent art.

    Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone.
