    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.
