    l'Artisan Patchouli Patch
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.
    (From Maldoror by Comte de Lautreamont)

    Givenchy Play from a sample today. Not bad, but too much like Polo Double Black which I already own. I will not be getting this for my BDay as I had planned...now which one? Hmmmm....

    Today's SOTD has been my first test of Natori by Natori.



    From the rose and plum listed in the notes, I was expecting a huge Bulgarian rose/fruit stinker a la Bulgari Rose, but the plum is clearly in charge, with the rose lending a subtle floral quality and some aldehydes brightening it up. While this recipe is similar to the top of Feminite du Bois, it somehow feels much darker.

    Also of note is that the suede musk in the base comes through right from the start. As the morning wore on, the suede got more buttery (and I mean that literally - at times, I smelled butter). Later, the rose has largely faded and the suede has remained buttery. It has become clear that it was the black patchouli that was darkening everything - it's still giving a dark sweetness to the base.

    Overall, this is a shade more feminine than I enjoy wearing, but it's quite nice. One could argue that this has been influenced by Lutens or Feminite du Bois (with the plum/aldehyde top). It also manages to use fruit and floral elements without becoming a typical fruity floral. It's strong (I'm only wearing one light spray because I'm at work). I'd recommend it to fans of FdB, the dried-fruit Lutens, or the patchouli-heavy Tom Fords (Noir do Noir, etc).

    Calvin Klein - Calvin

    (Unfortunately I'm sensing once again that I haven't managed to find the happy medium between "enough to enjoy" and "so much I resent it" when applying this one. It just won't behave predictably for me, and I may look for something new to take its place in my wardrobe -- another rich and aromatic fougere, preferrably with the Neroli that I enjoy so much in Calvin... Guess I'll start another thread if I get serious about this!)
