    66-60 Alt Innsbruck Eau de Cologne
    by Kosmetikerzeugung Reinhold Neuner

    According to manufactum.com: “This aftershave is a real rarity. Unlike the usual
    tobacco-scented mixtures that often use synthetic tobacco aroma as well as a lot of other
    unwanted ingredients, this one is made with only the finest Virginia tobacco (Nicotiana Tabacum).
    Because of its high percentage of menthol, it effectively cools the skin. This pure version is not
    available in retail any more. Only a couple of old hairdressers in Innsbruck, Austria
    still order it directly from the manufacturer who now also bottles it in
    vintage-labelled flacons, especially for us.”
    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

    This week I'm going to wear scents that didn't wow me the first time like I thought they would.

    Idole de Lubin

    Every great artist has their moment where they don't connect with me. Spielberg directed a misfired attempt at romantic comedy in Always. Jean-Claude Ellena decided to try an aquatic with Cartier Declaration Bois Bleu. These are examples where trademark assets of the artist are used in the wrong milieu and create a mistake, for me. Olivia Giacobetti has created some of my favorite scents, she has a style that allows you to feel as if you're experiencing a scent through a light layer of linen in translucent waves. When she chooses her milieu correctly she creates scents like L'Artisan Tea for Two. Frederic Malle En Passant or Costes. When she chooses poorly, as she did in 2005, she creates Idole de Lubin. Mme Giacobetti clearly was looking to adapt her light quality to a boozy, spicy, leather-based scent. The only problem for me is that when I want a scent like that I don't want it to be held at arm's length. I want it to be like a shot of rum which explodes on my senses and I feel it all over. Idole de Lubin holds true to Mme. Giacobetti's aesthetic and that keeps it from working for me. The top of Idole is an ethereal mix of rum, saffron and cumin. They are expertly balanced but they are so lightly apparent on my skin that it seems like they are only present for a heartbeat. They are quickly overwhelmed by a woody accord of sandalwood and another note that is more astringent which, according to the note list, must be doum palm. Here I'm almost glad this is being held at arm's length as the woodiness seems out of balance with the sheer spices of the top. The base turns into a lovely leather and here the opaque quality, that Mme. Giacobetti has used to detriment in Idole, actually works well and the leather applied with a light hand is the best part of Idole de Lubin, for me. Idole de Lubin has good longevity but like most of Mme. Giacobetti's scents does not project very much. Idole de Lubin will go down as one of those noble failures by one of my favorite perfumers.

    Have a Munificent Monday everyone

    Geo. F. Trumper Sandalwood Cologne

    Geo. F. Trumper:

    Mystery and sensuality smoulder beneath the velvet layers of this rich, exotic aroma. Woody warm murmurs exude the piquant suggestion of pepper from its sumptuous, sultry depths. The opulance of this sacred scent pays homage to the steely, masculine form.

    Me:

    This may be the reason that Egoiste isn't marketed in the UK
