    Floris
    Elite
    (1980)

    Top Notes: Grapefruit, Bergamot Leaves
    Middle Notes: Lavender, Patchouli, Cedar
    Base Notes: Tuberose, Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Vetiver

    I'm in the minority among Basenotes reviewers of this scent. Here's my take on it: Elite is woody-floral with a green citrus top. The notes, to my nose, marry very well. It seems a bright and optimistic fragrance, not what one would usually think of when seeing patchouli, cedar, oakmoss, vetiver, and sandalwood all stacked up in a fragrance; but in Elite, the top notes and the unusual combination of lavender and tuberose give the whole a real lift and brighten it considerably. Even in the drydown, the gentler notes persist. This may not be to the taste of those who prefer "modern" fragrances, but it's pretty well put together and deserves the occasional outing.

    Saturday night. I need a scent that is romantique, dark, strong, and seductive. So I choose Montale Black Aoud.

    Wow! How appropriate on this sunny late-summer-morning. I had breakfast early this morning in a little bar, sitting outside in the not-so-hot-sunshine. Everything fine! I so wish I had a new girlfriend to share such experiences. Someday!

    Divine's divine perfume!!!
    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..."
