Jaïpur pour Homme Fraîcheur - Boucheron
Funny story. I've been eager to try the normal Jaïpur by Boucheron.
Now I was going through my collection of samples and I found out that I have a sample of this discontinued fragrance! Very weird!
I will certainly try the original since I like this one.
I'm still in;

Eau Sauvage by Christian Dior
OBSESSION By Calvin Klein

Taking a day (or more! ) off from fragrances. Something has gone wacky with my throat and it's been hurting badly (no other symptoms, hmm) and scents just exacerbate the pain. Actually, my throat feels much better now that I'm not wearing anything.

L'Art et la Matière
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.
Yr good bud,
