Middle Notes: Cinnamon, Thyme, Clove
Base Notes: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Labdanum
A very spicy, woody note right off the bat, with a hint of citrus that gets swallowed up pretty quickly; then it passes into the spicy-herbal heart note. You can detect the base notes a bit from the beginning, but they begin to separate and come into sharper focus as the drydown commences. This has a ton of sillage at the very beginning, and soon moderates to tolerable, but still prominent levels after a few minutes. The overall impression is typically masculine in the aromatic vein. It is slightly reminiscent of Amouage Lyric, especially in its spicy aspect (cf. Lyric's angelica, ginger, nutmeg, and saffron notes); but it has nothing of the floral aspect of that, and the base note has only sandalwood in common with Lyric. Still, the overall feel of the fragrance is similar. The strength of CN Homme is that it has a very solid base note combining the sandalwood with patchouli and labdanum; that last-mentioned bridges the woody patchouli with with the oriental sandalwood, and lends a subtle ambery tone to the whole, which you have to wait for, but which is worth the wait. I expected this to be good, but it exceeded my expectations. The only thing I have to cavil at is that it probably couldn't easily be worn in warmer weather, but it's wintertime now, so I'm going to go to town... Dominique Ropion justifies his reputation with this one.

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..."
