    Hermès
    Équipage
    (1970)
    Guy Robert
    Floral-Aromatic Chypre
    ------------------
    Top Notes : Aldehyde, Bergamot Oil, Clary Sage Oil, Mace, Orange, Rosewood
    Heart Notes: Carnation, Cinnamon, Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Pine Needle
    Base Notes: Moss, Musk, Patchouli, Tonka, Vanilla, Vetiver
    ------------------

    A spicy-floral chypre from 1970, this is a heady combination laced with aldehydes and some clary sage in the top notes. Carnation is the head of the floral accord in the heart with jasmine and muguet completing the triad. A chypre base adds musk, coumarin, vetiver, and vanilla for depth and roundness. Some people find this slightly medicinal (I suspect the nutmeg and mace play a role in this impression); others, like me, just find it exotic, like a beautiful face endowed with a strikingly odd nose — but the tones are so warm and rich, the angles and planes are so perfect, the underlying structure so blatantly classical that the beauty of the whole is undeniable.

    Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue by Atelier Perfumes (from a sample)



    A very generous SA (I think he was flirting with me) at Neiman Marcus yesterday gave me a sample of this one, and WOW it's a winner. Too expensive but oh my...this orange lover has hit the jackpot. Summer is here and little puffs of orange zest are swirling all around me.

    - Eau de Toilette -



    As for the Dior Homme, I get more longevity and sillage outta the EdT,
    and it is at the same time more sweet and lipstick'ish, than the cologne.
