    The Different Company
    Bergamote
    (2003)
    Jean-Claude Ellena
    Fresh Citrus

    ------------------
    Notes: Bergamot, Citrus Notes, Precious Woods, Ginger, Orange Blossom, Green Leaves, Rhubarb, Musk
    ------------------

    Citrus is not something I usually think of in the same context as rhubarb. Ginger, on the other hand is a possibility; I remember a little fresh juice joint that made a mix of orange, carrot, ginger, and beet juices — surprisingly yummy. The woody notes, orange blossom, and green notes make up a curious heart note for this. Rhubarb and musk make an odd base note as well. The whole thing is offbeat and kind of bare-bones, in the characteristic minimalist style of J-C Ellena. But off-beat is not at all bad, just different, and maybe even refreshing... And the rhubarb and citrus did smell a bit familiar: now I recall Ungaro Apparition Homme and its Apparition Homme Intense flanker, with their top notes of rhubarb and mandarine. But the TDC has none of the oriental notes of AH Extreme or the licorice and vetiver base of AH. Bergamote is softer and more powdery in the drydown, not at all unpleasant. Full marks to this for having the guts to be a little bit out-there.

    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.

    Paco Rabbane's hypebeast for the past year, One Million. Technically it is the next day here in California for the past 2 1/2 hours. I just took a shower and gave a little spray of my decant of this on myself. Upon sniffing, I can tell that I'm not really gonna like this one much to begin with and it'll take a while to grow on me. It's sweet, synthetic, and sorta loud. That's just on a single mist of One Million on my chest. I was planning on wearing this to Vegas on Friday, now I'm having second thoughts. LOL. Although it IS the perfect thing to wear at such a place.

    Wanted something that felt alive this morning.

    Diptyque L’Eau des Hesperides

    Diptyque turned 40 in 2008 and to celebrate they had Olivier Pescheux create three new fragrances which were inspired by Diptyque’s original release in 1968, L’Eau. The three new releases were all attempts to create a 21st century eau fraiche. Of these three fragrances the one I liked best was L’Eau des Hesperides.
    The Hesperides are nymphs who tend Hera’s gardens in Greek Mythology. Sometimes they are called the Nymphs of the Evening and I find that appellation appropriate when thinking of L’Eau des Hesperides. Usually when wearing something that is considered an eau fraiche I think of a fragrance that is light and for everyday wear. What I found the more I experienced L’Eau des Hesperides is that it went much better with the cool of the evening than the heat of the day.

    The top of L’Eau des Hesperides begins with an orange mix of mandarin and bitter orange. This adds a bit of astringency to the usual citrus opening and it creates an almost dusty arid version of orange, very unique. M. Pescheux’s view of the Hesperides’ garden must be one of citrus orchards and herbs because the heart of L’eau des Hesperides takes a distinctly herbal turn as it develops. Petitgrain leads the way to a mix of rosemary and thyme. This herbal quality is really quite beautiful and adds heft to this fragrance. The base is cedar and white musk which adds a strong woody character with a sheer musk which is a good balance to finish this scent.

    L’Eau des Hesperides has surprising longevity for an eau fraiche and average sillage.

    Hercules needed Atlas’ help to raid the Hesperides garden in myth. Thankfully M. Pescheux has made it much easier for us mere mortals to enter the Hesperides olfactory garden and I plan on visiting it often.

    Have a Terrific Thursday everyone.
