    Warm weather made a change of plans necessary...
    Guerlain
    Vétiver pour Elle
    (2005)
    Jean-Paul Guerlain
    Top Notes: Bergamot, Neroli
    Middle Notes: Honeysuckle, Lily of the Valley, Nutmeg
    Base Notes: Vetiver, Tonka Bean
    Green citrus bergamot, white-floral citrus neroli, green-floral honeysuckle, white-floral lily of the valley, the sweet spice of nutmeg, woody green vetiver, and the new-mown hay note of coumarin from tonka beans. Altogether a woody and green scent with traces of sweet florals and spice, with a dryish edge of coumarin powderiness. Vetiver with a touch of fougère? Yes, but too much vetiver to allow lavender in, so a kind of fougère manquée. Yet J-P Guerlain's instincts were dead-on; the right balance for a softer version of the 1961 Vétiver, if anything even woodier, less harsh, for removing the screen of rougher base notes and revealing more of the vetiver. It's quite nice for men, too — despite the rather sexist name.

    Oyedo (2000)


    Like Luca Turin said, this smells a lot like a concord lime (or grape). You know that odd and deliciously juicy fruit that has a tart green smell with a sweet strawberry tone to it as well...

    Perhaps it`s just me and my skin, but when I apply this it delivers a strange and almost worrying physical reaction: It feels cool on my skin for the first 30 minutes or so, like I had applied a bit some ice gel...
    Talk about refreshing fragrance!!

    The best citrus I have ever worn and it will always remain in my top 20 overall. I love it and it lasts around the clock.

    One of my girlfriends favourites as well; she really likes to use this one and she is one damn picky lady when it comes to perfumes!
    She loves it on me, too.

    Yuzu, grapefruit, lime, orange, mint, thyme, and woods are the official notes.

    Eau de Patou - late 70s / early 80s version, 50 ml smooth cylindrical bottle with elongated blue top.

    This is just slightly more 'robust' in a chypre-ish way than the later 90s version, where the floral presence is played up a little more. Both are beautiful.

    Kobe by XERJOFF
    It becomes addictive stuff! I wear it 3 days in a row, at home and in office. Mornings and nights.
    I`ve never thought that some citrus cologne could make me addicted to citruses.
    Kobe is not just citruses (neroli is especially fantastic here, for my palates!) but some rosewood, patchouli and oud too... Anyway the start is really great!

    Happy Birthday to my "brother" Neil Morris! "Mom" always liked you best.

    Happy Rosh Hashanah i think I might be at ComDiva's before the night is through.

    It has been a week of strong close wearing scents and I reached to the back of the decant drawer for this one, and scent twins with NEoTY26

    Serge Lutens La Myrrhe

    As an inveterate lover of all things resinous, myrrh is the hardest of the resins to get comfortable with. It can come off as medicinal and sometimes just presents too many rough edges that it makes it difficult, for a perfumer, to work with. I think myrrh has been one of the more mis-used notes out there but when a perfumer has a plan it can sing out beautifully. Serge Lutens and Christopher Sheldrake clearly had a plan when they composed their 1995 release La Myrrhe. They take the very prickliness of myrrh and use it to offset some other prickly notes and make an edgy modern classic. The myrrh in all of its raw glory is apparent, right from the first moments, and it is set against and enhanced by a burst of sparkling aldehydes. There is also an intense anise accord that feels just right, here. This is a typical Lutensian intense opening and it is not going to be for everyone. For me, it is full of razor sharp edges that I keep chasing down. I find the complexity on display mesmerizing. Eventually the aldehydes recede and then a sweet, contrasting honey note appears and this serves to highlight the sweeter character of myrrh and to mute the more medicinal aspects. As this continues to develop I get a lot of sandalwood which matches the sweetness level introduced by the honey but doesn't take it any deeper. Finally a musk and amber base helps warm this up at the very end. La Myrrhe is a beautiful piece of perfume composition that is not easy to wear. While I think everyone should sniff this I'm sure that not everyone can, or should, wear it. La Myrrhe has over 24 hours of longevity on me and is a close wearing scent with little sillage. For me, La Myrrhe is a classic baseline scent and an example of the pinnacle of what myrrh can be in a perfume.

    Have a Funtastic Friday everyone.
