    Tom Ford
    Grey Vetiver
    (2009)
    Firmenich
    Woody

    ------------------
    Top Notes: Grapefruit, Orange Blossom, Aromatic Sage
    Middle Notes: Orris Root, Nutmeg, Pimento
    Base Notes: Vetiver, Amber Woods, Oakmoss
    -------------------

    A very citrusy, very green, very clean vetiver-laced affair. From the beginning we find the tang of grapefruit combined atypically with a sweet and floral orange blossom note. For green we get a clean, herbal note of aromatic sage which makes a bridge between the somewhat floral aspect of the orange blossom and the vetiver which is to follow. For roundness, the heart notes of orris root, a hint of spicy nutmeg, and a bit of sharp pimento; these also add variety and interest, providing structure and development. Finally, the main act emerges as the base notes make their first appearance: the thematic vetiver with some soft, ambery woods for richness and the bitter bite of oakmoss for a final stylish flourish. Well done!
    Yr good bud,

    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..."

    Back to work and wanted to wear a new favorite.

    By Kilian Cruel Intentions

    I've only recently begun exploring Kilian Hennessy's By Kilian line of fragrance and when I was first sniffing the whole collection earlier this year there was one that hit me just right. That scent was the 2007 release Cruel Intentions by Sidonie Lancesseur.

    I think the thing that grabbed me is it is perhaps the most restrained use of oud in a fragrance I've found. Most oud based fragrances come out and at some point in the development use the oud like the bright blare of brass in an orchestra. I found Mme. Lancesseur's much more restrained use of oud to be much more interesting like placing a bell mute in the aforementioned brass section. This has the effect of making me feel like I'm always hearing the oud from a distance and while I expect it to pick up in intensity it never does and that makes this fragrance unique.

    The top of Cruel Intentions starts with a pedestrian mix of bergamot and orange blossom it is light and fresh and a tad boring. Just after this the oud begins to appear and as I mentioned already it rises in intensity and then holds at that level for the rest of the development. This allows the notes that appear later to interact with the oud and not be overwhelmed by it. The next group of notes that appear are a floral bouquet led by violet. Violet is a good compatriot for oud as it has a sharpness to it that goes well with the medicinal quality oud brings to fragrance. The fragrance then settles into a base of gaiac and sandalwood along with a dollop of vetiver. As with the violet, the vetiver has its sharper edges on display to go along with the oud. Very late in the development on my skin I get a healthy bit of animalic castoreum and it seems a like a late-comer to the party but not an unwelcome guest, to be sure.

    Cruel Intentions has above average longevity on me but it is a very close wearing skin scent with almost no sillage to speak of. Another oddity for an oud scent.

    The thing I admire most about Cruel Intentions is the ability Mme. Lancesseur has with making one work to find the oud. It makes the journey that much more enjoyable when its done.

    Have a Miraculous Monday everyone.

    Jicky (vintage Parfum de Toilette) by Guerlain



    I have been wanting a bottle of this for a while - so I got a decant of it, to stall my cravings. Wow, it's wonderful. Like the older sister of Mouchoir de Monsieur - with a little more Guerliande and a lot more attitude (sillage). I knew I'd love it. And I do. Vintage Guerlain's are just incredible, aren't they?
