    Tom Ford Special Blends
    Moss Brèches
    (2007)
    Herbal Chypre

    ------------------
    Top Notes: Tarragon, Rosemary, Clary Sage
    Middle Notes: Beeswax, Spices
    Base Notes: Labdanum, Patchouli, Benzoin, Moss
    ------------------
    A deep, spicy and herbal impression slowly melts into something more animalic, resiny, and oriental; a strong allusion to chypre construction can't be missed in this scent. The whole seems particularly innovative in the weight of spice and herbals vis-à-vis the chypre theme. The total lack of florals in a chypre is quite striking, really. This is barely balanced at the tipping point, but its audacity gives it the edge it needs to pull off the stunt with panache.

    Wearing my birthday present from my ScentMother, ComDiva and Scent Twins with MikefromManhattan:

    Lorenzo Villoresi Spezie

    We have a wonderful spice store near us called Penzey's and I love when I shop in there that first moment when I walk through the door. My nose is met with a melange of spices and it all smells different and unique every time depending on what is out for sampling and in bulk. I've always thought what a wonderful smell this would be if a perfumer could capture this. Well Lorenzo Villoresi must think the same thing because his 1994 fragrance Spezie does exactly this. Twelve of the 18 listed notes in Spezie are spice notes and they create the feeling of walking in that spice store near perfectly. The entry to Sig. Villoresi's spice rack starts with a mix of coriander and cardamom these are the most prominent notes but off on a far rack the aromatic jars containing eucalyptus and mint are noticeable. Another few steps deeper into the store and I encounter the section containing pepper and thyme which when I turn around on the other side of the aisle, the cinnamon and nutmeg also appear. Underneath all of this floats a cumin note that is exquisitely balanced. Cumin is the note that could have pushed all of the spices to the side but Sig. Villoresi keeps it under control and instead it feels like an appropriate partner. The base carries the clasical mix of rosemary and smoky sage along with a more unusual accord of tomato leaves. This isn't an accord I would think I'd want in a perfume but in Spezie it fits seamlessly and appropirately. Spezie has excellent longevity and sillage. If you are a lover of spice notes in perfumery this is a must try, as along with Piper Nigrum, Sig. Villoresi has made two of the stand-out fragrances in this area of fragrance. Back in the 60's Alka-Seltzer used to have a commercial built around the line "Mama Mia That's a Spicy Meatball!" I'd like to update that line a bit "Sig. Villoresi That's a Spicy Perfume!"

    Have a Titanic Tuesday everyone.

    Acqua di Parma Intensa from a sample. Ya know, this is like wearing one spray of Aramis to your chest...except with Intensa, it takes 8 sprays for the same effect. Some similarities to Tom Ford for Men and Guerlain's L'Instant Pour Homme, as well. Warm and sweet.

    I recently bought bottles of Assoluta and Colonia, but I don't think I'll buy Intensa.
