Vétiver pour Elle
Top Notes: Bergamot, Neroli
Middle Notes: Honeysuckle, Lily of the Valley, Nutmeg
Base Notes: Vetiver, Tonka Bean
Green citrus bergamot, white-floral citrus neroli, green-floral honeysuckle, white-floral lily of the valley, the sweet spice of nutmeg, woody green vetiver, and the new-mown hay note of coumarin from tonka beans. Altogether a woody and green scent with traces of sweet florals and spice, with a dryish edge of coumarin powderiness. Vetiver with a touch of fougère? Yes, but too much vetiver to allow lavender in, so a kind of fougère manquée? Yet J-P Guerlain's instincts were dead-on; the right balance for a softer version of the 1961 Vétiver, if anything even woodier, less harsh, for removing the screen of rougher base notes and revealing more of the vetiver. It's quite nice for men, too — despite the rather sexist name.
Yr good bud,

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

I started this morning with C&S Cuba, which I find to be rather boring, so to pick things up, I sprayed my new Havana Vanille over it and I'm smelling like I was just rolled in a field of tobacco. GLORIOUS!

SotM is Bond no.9 Signature Perfume. This is good stuff. I was not impressed with Andy Warhol Success Is A Job In New York And The Poor Man Has To Be Rolling Over In The Grave At This Point - just too much of the part about Bonds that I don't like. Opaque, rough-edged floral candy that is very popular now, but not with me. But Bond's Signature Perfume is really light, ethereal, yet not faint - just wonderful stuff. Yes, I was influenced by my free sample. I put enough on to really get it. You can wear this sledding or to the opera. I had no frigging idea that oud could be used to this effect. Still evaluating, but it's starting out strong on my love list.
