    somehow this old-n-cheap perfume make me feel calm and grounded.
    Maybe it`s animalic chypre base or old-fashioned flowers that works for me?
    Anyway, it`s suits winter day (minus 20 Celsius) perfectly.

    Parfums Régence
    Oakmoss
    (No date, perfumer, or notes available)
    Classic Fougère

    Once again, the mysterious house of Régence makes an appearance, this time with a very elegant fougère-style fragrance that features a remarkable lavender note. The lavender doesn't make itself felt immediately; the earliest note seems to be a resinous citrus (probably bergamot) with hints of oakmoss and clary sage, this last strongly recalling muscatel wine. There is a hay-like note, probably coumarin. The overall impression is rather elegant, but forthright, pulling no punches. The fragrance subsides fairly quickly from a distinct sillage to a quieter level of projection, with longevity of about four hours before going very close to the skin. This is very hard to find, but is definitely worth a sniff if you ever spot it.
    Yr good bud,

    Cold and gray and I wanted something vanilla this morning.

    Le Labo Vanille 44

    Le Labo has an irritating habit of making some of their best scents exclusive to one city. The 2008 release by Alberto Morillas for Le Labo, Vanille 44, is one of those examples as it is only available at Colette in Paris. I really like M. Morillas' Aramni Prive Vetiver Babylone for the bubble of vetiver that fragrance seems to create around me. It has a subtlety and a strength all at the same time. Vanille 44 does the same trick but with vanilla this time. When trying any Le Labo you always have to wonder whether the titular note will be prominent or a supporting player. The top of Vanille 44 starts off with a mix of bergamot, incense and gaiac with no vanilla to be seen. These three notes are lovely together and they are applied in a light way so as to begin to create that bubble I spoke of earlier. The heart is where the vanilla does come in and at first it is in balance with the light notes of the top before gaining in intensity until it is the dominant note. That intensity never becomes the sugary sweet overpowering vanilla of other scents. Instead this gains in intensity and then starts to warm on my skin and radiate in sheer waves of austere vanilla. Just as in Vetiver Babylone I feel encased in a bubble of vanilla and enjoy it tremendously. The base is a sheer musk which helps attenuate the vanilla slightly but this scent stayed all about the vanilla from the heart to the end. Vanille 44 has average longevity and is a close wearing fragrance with minimal sillage. As much as I want to be able to dismiss one of these Le Labos as overpriced hype; Vanille 44 is not Heinz 57.

    Have a Fabulous Friday everyone.

    Varvatos Rock Vol. 1

    I Like this one alot. Not sure why this one is getting such bad press. One of the better designer releases this year IMO. Has a sneaky sillage. Doesn't hit you over the head and I like that, especially in a work environment. Awesome packaging and great bottle.

    I want to add that this is a dry fragrance in feel. Clary sage, metallic notes, coffee, black leather. It is not especially sweet, so I see it as different from the other Varvatos frags. Some could be discounting the longevity because they are expecting things to sweeten a bit, but it is there all the time; just dry and almost parched at times IMO.
