Musgo Real - Agua de Colonia No. 2 Oak Moss
Top Notes: Absinthe, Anise
Middle Notes: Cinnamon, Tiaré Flower, Jasmine, Lily,
Base Notes: Chocolate Note, Vanilla, Musk, Cedar
"Bittersweet" indeed. Bitter wormwood (absinthe); sweet anise, cinnamon, tiaré flower, jasmine, lily, and vanilla; bittersweet chocolate note; then inedible powdery musk and woody cedar. What lingers on me is the opening of wormwood and anise, hauntingly filtered through the inedible base notes. I sprayed a tiny bit on my hand early one afternoon, and it remained in a subtle whisper of this four-note chord when I woke up the following morning. It is quiet, but not shy; soft, but not yielding. And now, it is being discontinued. Get it while you still can.
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.
The message this morning was "easy-going".
I still like Trussardi "Essenza del Tempo", but I ADORED it last summer. It has the feeling of summer in Italy.
Tonight calls for a revenge, a real contrast...

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..."
