    For the second day in a row:
    Guerlain

    L'Art et la Matière
    Tonka Impériale
    (2010)
    Thierry Wasser
    Oriental
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Rosemary
    Middle Notes: Tonka Bean, Spices, Honey
    Base Notes: Vanilla, Woody Notes, Tobacco, Amber
    ------------------
    Initially, there is a blast of something that smells a bit like rum or brandy, but this is ephemeral. Soon the scent begins to show off its title component, tonka bean. When this appears, it seems a bit muddied at first, but that, too, soon resolves, and a clear honey note emerges alongside the tonka. Then, in rapid succession, vanilla, tobacco, and amber. Strangely, the real signature of this waits for the end, which is a while in coming: with all the others setting the stage, a spicy-woody rosemary steals in, and makes this creation truly beautiful. There is a definite unity of style among the L'Art et la Matière series, and this one fits right in, somewhere between Angélique Noire and Bois d'Arménie.

    Hello all. Have a great Monday


    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..."

    Thanks to a sample from Quarry - the sweet smell of cherries this ayem....Cartier's Delices. After a fresh citrusy opening there's sweet/tart cherries, a hint of tonka and the soft hum of patch in the drydown.

    Or - to quote the card notes...."Carnal pleasure and moving femininity of patchouli and vanilla"!! I'm really luvvin' it.

    Guerlain's Tonka Impériale (from a vial). Amaretto, "white leather", nougat and face powder. I don't get lifelike rosemary, but I'm quite sure it delivers some aromatic lift to the whole thing. A bit too "niche" for my taste, but really a lovely trail following me around all the time...

    Wearing my Valentine's Day present today.

    Dior Fahrenheit Absolute

    One of the earliest fragrances I can remember trying which made me realize there were florals besides rose for men was 1988’s Dior Fahrenheit by Jean-Louis Sieuzac and Maurice Roger. The violet at the heart of Fahrenheit would set a course for me for years of enjoyment of the slightly astringent aspect that violet brings to a scent. Now, in 2009, 21 years after the release of the original a new flanker Fahrenheit Absolute has been released in which the press materials promise a more intense and darker version of the original. Based on that description this felt like a Fahrenheit that would fit my 21st century sensibilities.

    I haven’t been the biggest fans of the other Fahrenheit flankers because they all tamper too much with the formula that makes the original Fahrenheit work so well. By surrounding a floral core with spices, woods, and amber; Fahrenheit was an easily wearable men’s fragrance. The other flankers went astray when they either obliterated the violet or amped up the top notes. What makes Fahrenheit Absolute work so well is this time the perfumers chose to intensify the heart and base and create a richer more opulent version.

    The top of Fahrenheit Absolute begins with the same lavender and bergamot as in the original but this time the lavender is kept on the sharper side and it creates an edgy beginning that wasn’t present before. This works well because the violet in the heart complements this beginning as the tartness of that comes into play soon after and then a mix of myrrh and incense take the violet and add a resinous sweetness that makes the heart of Fahrenheit Absolute intoxicatingly different than its predecessor. This interplay of resins and violet continues into the heart where one of the rawest leather notes I’ve encountered in a mainstream perfume resides and it adds a raw edge to things. This leather accord is very similar to the accord in Etat Libre D’Orange’s Vierges et Toreros. It is the smell of the hide just after it has been treated in a tannery and it is very primal and I like it, a lot. The traditional mix of oriental elements complete the development of Fahrenheit Absolute in a soft swirl of amber, musk, and patchouli but it is the combination of violet, resins, and leather that bring Fahrenheit Absolute alive. The note list shows the presence of oud and maybe I’m just suffering from oud fatigue but I just don’t detect it. It might be part of the rawness of the leather accord and that’s where I’m missing it but it never comes out in a way that I can identify it. If you’re looking for an oud version of Fahrenheit this might not be the perfume your looking for.

    Fahrenheit Absolute has excellent longevity and above average sillage.

    I am not the biggest fan of flankers as too often they seem to exist solely to make money and not as an artistic riff on the original inspiration. It is nice to find exceptions to those assumptions as Fahrenheit Absolute is absolutely a fragrance that stands on its own artistic legs quite nicely, thank you.

    Have a Mad (in a wild and fun way) Monday everyone.
