    Guerlain
    Chamade
    (1969)
    Jean-Paul Guerlain

    Top Notes: Hyacinth, Aldehydes, Bergamot
    Middle Notes: Galbanum, Rose, Jasmine, Lilac, Clove, Lily of the Valley
    Base Notes: Vanilla, Amber, Benzoin, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Peru Balsam, Tolu Balsam

    A classic scent from Guerlain with a rich floral palette balanced by green galbanum, spices, and oriental base notes. Looking at the pyramid, one imagines something very rich, perhaps even heavy, but this is blended with a very light hand. The overall impression is ultimately fresh, airy, slightly spicy, and green with a lingering hint of the florals. Good longevity and decent sillage characterize this fragrance. I think most men wouldn't find this impossible to wear — in the EdT form, at least (on which this review is based).

    Scarb by Humiecki&Graef

    One of the best aquatics over the planet.
    Actually I`ve read the leaflet and site - too pompous to be true.
    Anyway, they captured the same accord as in Secretions Magnifique ELDO, but it was interwoven into great saline-incense scent. Laudamiel, BRAVO!
    I believe that could become The Last Aquatic Scent, as it`s much better & complicated than the rest.

    Tears are the last thing to recall when it deals with aquatic. So the legend and idea is excellent example of stereotype-rupture marketing too.

    I've finally gotten off the beach and wanted something with heft and so I find myself in a haze of roses.

    Les Parfums de Rosine Rose Kashmirie

    Marie-Helene Rogeon is the founder of Les Parfums de Rosine and their raison de etre seems to be to see how many different types of rose centered scents a House can make. With that kind of a mission that probably means there is a rose in there for every nose. I am a big fan of Les Parfums de Rosine Rose D'Homme. I also love the mix of rose and saffron I get from both Diptyque's Opone and Czech & Speake's Dark Rose. The 2007 creation, by longtime nose for Les Parfums de Rosine Francois Robert, Rose Kashmirie promised me rose and saffron in an oriental and I was looking forward to it. One of the things I like about Rose D'Homme is the arid dusty rose in that scent, Rose Kashmirie couldn't be more different as this starts with a full-throated roar of rose as lush and full-figured as rose gets on me. The rose is quickly joined by a touch of bergamot and then the saffron shows up and this is what Rose Kashmirie is all about as the smooth saffron takes the top to an enchanting olfactory space. As this develops the rose becomes deeper and slightly sweeter and then a hint of resin adds a slight bit of incense-like sweeteness to the scent. The base takes a turn towards vanilla and a light woody musk. The vanilla is the dominant note and that seems appropriate because the theme of Rose Kashmirie seems to be sweet rose and the vanilla allows that sweetness to develop all the way to the end. For all that this is an intense rose it does not carry a lot of sillage and is mostly close-wearing on me and I like an intense scent that only feels the need to fill up my nose and not the room. The longevity is excellent as have been all of Les Parfums de Rosine that I have tried to date. Once again I have taken a walk in Mme. Rogeon's garden of perfume roses and found a new one to add to my lapel.

    Have a Tripendicular Thursday everyone.

    LE TROISIEME HOMME


    Another masterpiece from the venerable house of CARON
    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..."

    Chamade notes: Turkish rose, ylang-ylang, jasmine, lilac, blackcurrant buds, lily of the valley, galbanum, sandalwood, vetiver, musk, amber, iris, and tonka bean.
    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

    Lorenzo Villoresi Sandalo layered with Lorenzo Villoresi Uomo. I find both to be great scents individually, but too weak. Maybe this will help. I really like the scent of the result of the layering so far.

    CLEAN Ultimate EDP

    Really enjoying this new purchase. Very Gendarme like, but with a little more floral feeling swirling around.
    Great longevity and moderate sillage. I smell like I just took a shower and broke a small sweat (musk).
    I tried all the other frags from the Clean line and this was the only one that I enjoyed.

    Don't worry about me going too clean though....I have my eye on MKK as soon as it gets to the export line.

    The Guerlain sales representative that I talk to suggested this :

    L'Heure Bleue layered over Mitsouko

    I smelled the EDT's (in the store) combined together and the L'Heure Bleue really overpowered Mitsouko. Then I got home and tried my EDP's together and this time Mitsouko was so much stronger.

    I'm wearing them both today! It's nice.
