An engaging aroma from the start: gentle, but a definite presence, making a fresh and slightly spicy impression, not exactly floral, but something woody-resiny tinged with moments of floral notes. When it dries down, it smells remarkably like clean, fresh skin, redolent of warmth and health. How Roucel does it is a mystery; from the pyramid, one would expect a slightly floral woody oriental. Indeed, in a sense, it is just that; nevertheless, it is the "skin scent" par excellence. Truly amazing how the warmth of skin can be encapsulated in such a fragrance!
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..."

Wanted a vetiver with bite this winter morning.
Le Labo Vetiver 46
It is certainly a truism in perfumery that there are a million vetiver stories in the scented city and this is but one of them. To stand out amongst those million vetiver stories a perfumer must take some risks and push the envelope a little bit. Nathalie Lorson and Dominique Ropion have succeeded in doing this with Lalique Encre Noire and Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire respectively. Those fragrances are successful because of the choices of the notes around vetiver which expose new facets of something very familiar.
In 2006 Mark Buxton created Vetiver 46 for Le Labo and I think it is right up there with Encre Noire and Vetiver Extraordinaire. Mr. Buxton uses many of the same components you find in those fragrances but exposes a medicinal quality to vetiver which I found surprisingly compelling.
The top of Vetiver 46 starts with a smoky vetiver reminiscent of Vetiver Extraordinaire but very quickly that smoke is sliced through with a piquant black pepper so intense it stands right up to the vetiver and holds its own. This combination of smoke and pepper and vetiver is not an easy combination to like and those who aren’t crazy about unusual mixes of notes will probably not enjoy it as much as I do. The heart gets very woody as the clean woods of cedar and gaiac appear over the vetiver. A strong incense accord joins the woods and vetiver in the heart and this makes for an arid almost dusty version of vetiver as if from an apothecary jar to be brewed in a tea. The base finishes with a deep comforting amber for the vetiver and incense to settle upon.
Vetiver 46 has above average longevity and average sillage on me.
I’m not talented enough to pick out all 46 ingredients in Vetiver 46 but the ones I can experience combine to make one of the finest vetiver fragrances out there.
Have a Fantastic Friday everyone.

I remember when Union Square was a pretty green park - on last visit there was a sort of farmer's market and a lotta trash. Hmmmn. NO connection to dear Andy who lived in his own freaky world and was WAY more original than this...
But what do I know?

Finally getting around to doing a full test of some more Smell Bent. Tried Hungry Hippies a while back and loved it. Today is Debonaire on one wrist and Horny Little Devil on the other. I like Debonaire, but I am entranced by Horny Little Devil. I think I'll get a full order of this one. I also want to try some of the new scents... especially Bollywood (sounds like Egoiste, but I'm hoping amped up rose, cinnamon, and sandalwood)
