    Guerlain
    Les Elixirs Charnels

    Boisé Torride
    (2009)

    Woody-Floral Modern Chypre

    ------------------
    Top Notes: Bergamot, Mandarin. Red Berries
    Middle Notes: Jasmine, Neroli, White Musk
    Base Notes: Patchouli, Cedar
    ------------------
    This recalls a woody-fruity floral chypre, only without the oakmoss. The floral heart of jasmine and neroli is fairly typical of one type of floral chypre from the old days. The cedar with the patchouli heightens the woody aspect of the patchouli, and rounds out the base notes to a fuller, darker accord that is reminiscent of the old chypre tripod. Nice to wear casually or formally, with a moderate sillage in the beginning which decreases as the drydown proceeds. This is pretty easily felt as unisex, the woody base balancing the white florals, and the citrus top notes maintaining a neutral balance. Along with Gourmand Coquin, this is one ogf the better of the Elixirs Charnels series.

    SERGE LUTENS





    Notes : iris, tonka bean, amber, lavender and woodsy notes.
    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..."
