Vetiver roots, ginger, spices, wood, cedar
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
Notes: Mandarin, Jasmine, Iris, Rose, Moss, Woody Notes
A classic chypre from the 1980's, with prominent moss notes in the base. The "woody notes" definitely include patchouli, and the mandarin stands in for bergamot. The floral bouquet in the middle is classic and very tastefully done, so the florals don't tip the balance against the base notes. Marketed to women, but the drydown is fine on a man, since all the florals in this are now commonly found in "masculine" scents and fall well short of screeching levels.

"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

Third day sampling this one. Impeccable, effortless, original and just superbly calibrated for the first real 'feel like something different' summer cologne from my best friend AdP Colonia (and believe me I have triend many). If the intention by F. Malle & D. Ropion was to create a new 'structure' for the Fougere (or 'summer EDC') genre I think they have succeeded here.
Creed M I.
Caron - Vintage Tabac Blond Eau de Toilette
Aramis 900 (1973)
Top Notes: Lemon, Bergamot, Rosewood.
Middle Notes: Carnation, Orris, Geranium.
Base Notes: Moss, Patchouli, Vetiver.
The attar 12 ml is a heady floral, dominated by Rose Taifi, the finest quality oil extracted from the petals of a rose. Complementing this, the finest Silver Frankincense, Tayyiba, a beautiful blend of Jasmine and Sweet Amber, Silver Oud and Al Andalus, a subtle blend of Citrus and Sandalwood. A small drop is applied to the pulse points, and the extraordinary, multi-faceted fragrance will develop over many hours.
