    Chanel
    Antaeus
    (1981)
    Jacques Polge
    Woody Chypre
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Lemon, Lime, Coriander, Clary Sage, Myrtle, Bergamot, Cedar Oil, Fruity Notes
    Middle Notes: Thyme, Basil, Rose, Jasmine, Orris Root
    Base Notes: Labdanum, Beeswax Absolute, Oakmoss, Castoreum, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Amber, Leather, Musk
    ------------------
    Antaeus is a masterpiece of its genre. The combination of myrtle and clary sage in the top note is an incredibly powerful reinforcement of the woody notes of cedar and sandalwood, and the perfect complement for the chypre accord of bergamot, oakmoss and patchouli. in fact the patchouli function in the chypre accord is helped by labdanum in the base, as well as being strengthened by the animalic notes of beeswax and castoreum. This scent has a wonderful sillage and longevity. It is attributed legendary powers of seduction. That's as may be, but for whatever reason, it undeniably turns heads. Some people put this down as a power scent from the 80s, and they may have reason to categorize it that way, but it is paradigmatic of its type, and far above even the best of its imitators.

    After yester's reviews I was torn between Eau de Merveilles and any kind of tuberose - and the latter won out.

    Ava Luxe
    Tuberose Diabolique

    (MORE than Criminal - Diabolicall!)

    This is still available in the perfume oil and if you're a t-rose fan you oughta try it. Two varieties of tuberose, light carnation and bitter orange over a kick-ass amber. For me it has the dizzying headspace of a big bunch of the flowers in a warm room. NOT for the faint of heart.
