    Happy Birthday to Snafoo!!!

    I think it is going to be amber week and I'm starting with a new one.

    Christian Dior Ambre Nuit

    In 2004 Christian Dior released, under the aegis of Hedi Slimane, three fragrances that were sold exclusively in their Dior Homme stores. Bois D’Argent, Cologne Blanche, and Eau Noire were three very good fragrances and like Oliver Twist, colognoisseurs wanted “more, please.” Unfortunately M. Slimane left Christian Dior and it seemed this expansion in to niche men’s fragrances would also be gone with him. Now, five years later we find that Christian Dior was going to pick up the ball and add a new fragrance, Ambre Nuit composed by Francois Demachy. As always when something comes back, after the creative inspiration has left, one can have some trepidation at the result. For me I am pleased to say that Ambre Nuit can easily be seen on the shelf with the first three as an equal and not a poor relation.

    Ambre Nuit begins with a breath of bergamot and pink pepper. The pepper is only the first spice to come as there is a beautiful mélange of spices in the heart and all of them are combined with a biting spicy rose accord. It isn’t listed but I keep thinking I get a hint of oud deep in the heart of Ambre Nuit and whatever it is makes for an added depth to the heart of Ambre Nuit. The base is a light application of cedar and gaiac. Throughout the development the amber is present; it is soft and rich and keeps this fragrance cohesive and consistent. The omnipresence of the amber can make Ambre Nuit feel almost linear in development and in my first wear of it I thought that might be a problem. Subsequent wears indicate that M. Demachy was after a subtle effect and it is achieved especially with a slightly heavier application that I usually use.

    Ambre Nuit has average longevity and modest sillage, it is almost a true skin scent as you have to be very close for another person to detect it.

    I am delighted to find Christain Dior back in the men’s fragrance business and I am especially delighted to find they have as much respect for the line as I have. Ambre Nuit does not suffer by comparison to the past.

    Have a Mirthful Monday everyone.

    Mugler Cologne EDC -- lots of it (have to if I want it to last longer than a few minutes).

    It's getting into the 40's today in Wisconsin, so I'm pretending like it's spring.

    All the green threads heralding spring and the weekend of chypre sniffing got me craving my very first foray into vintage perfumery, Replique by Raphael Paris, for today's SotD. I have both vintage parfum and edt and they are stunning. A perfect green for winter without being "wintergreen" (neither pine nor mint) and although a heavy and warming green a nice choice for the not-quite-spring-yet climate here.

    Notes include:
    Top: Bergamot oil, Clary Sage oil, Coriander, Neroli, Orange
    Heart: Clove Bud oil, Jasmin, Orris, Rose, Tuberose, Ylang-Ylang
    Base: Amber, Civet, Leather, Moss, Musk, Patchouli, Vanilla

    I get a lush, citrusy, animalic, spicy, barbershop, green, floral, oriental, chypre (yes it's a kitchen sink scent, but not overwhelmingly so) vibe that starts bright and ends dark.

    *I should add that although intended for women when crafted in 1944, this reminds me more of Tiffany for Men, Guerlain Heritage, a green Habit Rouge, Polo Modern Reserve, and other woody masculines than any feminine scents I like to wear.*


    This ad shows the parfum flacon.

    Long Lost Perfumes makes a contemporary copy... I haven't smelled it, but the vintage pops up online quite a bit.

    Hope everyone has a great start to the week!

    Ooh, everyone smells so GOOD today.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SNAFOO!!

    Today for me it's:

    Michael by Michael Kors



    First time from a sample - it's OK. It smells like BurberryLondonBlackWalnutBananaRepublicJohnVarvato sallrolledintoone. Nonetheless, this has insane longevity & sillage. Wow!

    I would love to love this - since my name is Michael. But alas, its really boring me.

    I've just tried what bit is left of Ineke Derring Do sample and can't help notice how very similar it is to Nobile 1942 - Vespriesperidati - Colonia Maxima.
