    L'Artisan Parfumeur
    Timbuktu
    (2004)
    Bertrand Duchaufour

    Top Note: Green Mango, Pink Pepper, Cardamom
    Middle Note: Frankincense, Karo Karounde, Papyrus
    Base Note: Patchouli, Myrrh, Vetiver, Benzoin

    Mysteriously floral and resinous at the same time, this combines the African karo karounde flower with frankincense and myrrh;
    it supports these with earthy vetiver and patchouli and crowns it all with spicy pink pepper and green notes of mango and papyrus.
    Unexpected combinations reveal Bertrand Duchaufour's art. This is an uplifting and cheerfully mellow scent, great to wear when you want to feel good.

    Yr good bud,

    Santa Fe for Men
    by Aladdin Fragrances

    An excellent and inexpensive 80’s powerhouse fragrance that
    deserves wider exposure. It is classified as a fresh Woody Oriental
    with notes of patchouli and sandalwood.

    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..."

    Still wearing scents that didn't put the wind in my sails first time around

    Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Route du Vetiver

    Its always interesting to me when I go to a party that as you approach the crowd of people there is always one voice that drifts above the crowd. As one who has a loud voice and speaks loudly, sometime this is myself I am describing. This would be in Seinfeld terms "The Loud Talker". People tend to shy away from The Loud Talker. When it comes to vetiver and the veritable party of scents out there one scent comes off as the unquestioned Loud Talker of vetiver and that is Jean Laporte's 1988 release for his Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier line, Route du Vetiver. One of the problems with the Loud Talker is the sheer volume has a habit of keeping people at arm's length and that is true of this scented Loud Talker. Route du Vetiver is the strongest vetiver I have come across. Many think of Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire to be the strongest but Route du Vetiver is a quantum leap stronger. This strength tends to make the opening overly medicinal and harsh. It has taken multiple wearings of Route du Vetiver for me to see beyond the harsh opening and appreciate the rest of what is on display.
    Right out of the atomizer you are hit with an intense vetiver smell. It is so strong that it comes off harsh to my nose making the first moments of Route du Vetiver a trial to be endured, for me. The first time I wore this I couldn't get past the raw intensely root-laden beginning and just didn't give it a chance. It took the second and third time for me to realize that after the harsh notes dissipate there is a drydown worth listening to. This starts with one of the best black currant accords I've come across. I don't know whether I think that because I'm so relieved to get away from the harsh beginning but it is paired with a lighter green accord and the dark fruit plus green is just beautiful. The vetiver seems to come back but at a third of the volume along with a mix of woods in the base with sandalwood the most prominent of the woods, although there are at least three other woods in here. Route du Vetiver has above average longevity and above average sillage. Because the vetiver is so strong at the beginning I think this is a scent one would have to be careful wearing out in public for the first 30 minutes or so as the beginning is so strong. After that, once it mellows, Route du Vetiver really does become a joy to behold. Like The Loud Talker I can understand not wanting to subject oneself to the volume, but if you do choose to get close enough you might find there is something under all the volume to be discovered.

    Have a Translucent Thursday everyone.

    Hey SMM - which formulation of Route du Vetiver do you have? I get the exact trip you talked about with the vintage, but the newer version is much more streamlined in the opening without being so in-your-face. It was given a dose of volume control.

    Last night, I wore Serge Lutens Arabie for an evening of homemade General Tso's Chicken, and Flight of the Conchords. The GF was into it so much, she wanted something different, but in a similar style, so she doused herself in Dior Eau Noire. It was a pretty great smelling house, if I might say so.

    Today (almost Friday! Woo!), I'm wearing Bond No. 9 Wall St.

    I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!

    My SoTD is Montale Sandflowers from a wonderful BNer! A lovely summer scent (I also use this in the dark of winter when I need to remember the sun and sea).

    Sandflowers notes: Marine notes, juniper berries, sandalwood and oakmoss.
    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
