    Maître Parfumeur & Gantier
    Parfum d'Habit
    (1998)
    Leather Oriental
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Blackcurrant Buds, Bergamot, Petitgrain
    Middle Notes: Leather, Geranium, Patchouli, Incense
    Base Notes: Sandalwood, Ambergris, Vanilla
    ------------------

    Initially, a very strange note resembling some kind of sharp-smelling forest damp, but then, it evens out into a kind of a leather scent with an oriental base. This has quite a bit of sillage, and works best in cooler weather on my skin. It can be quite elegant for evening wear (as in black tie), or simply for informal social events. The blackcurrant bud note stays with the fragrance most of the way through the drydown, giving it a uniqueness and a touch of cachet.
    Yr good bud,

    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..."

    Are you saying that you find it fleeting? It seems very tenacious to me. This morning I could still easily detect it on my hand which I sprayed last night.

    Yes, unfortunately, but I am aware that I am not good at projecting (body chemistry) certain fragrances if they are lacking certain components. This is usually why I can easily dive into some strong stuff.

    SotD: EdP FM Vetiver Extraordinaire (from a sample). Sadly, this was the last of my small decant. Lovely stuff, but I don't think I'll be purchasing a FB.

    On a strange note - I had a dream last night that I had a huge YSL LIVE JAZZ tattoo on my shoulder. Even stranger that I've never even so much as sampled it.

    OK, so I hardly ever do this, but today I will: I'm changing my mind. (Oh, no!) So instead of MPG Parfum d'Habit, it'll be

    Cartier
    Déclaration Eau Généreuse
    (2003)
    Jean-Claude Ellena
    Fresh Chypre
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Mandarin, Neroli, Coriander, Bergamot, Artemisia, Caraway, Russian Birch
    Middle Notes: Cardamom, Black Pepper, Jasmine, Juniper, Orris Root, Iris, Cinnamon, Ginger
    Base Notes: Cedar, Vetiver, Leather, Amber, Oakmoss, Tea Notes
    ------------------

    This is my favorite version of Déclaration. I think the appeal is that the basic Déclaration idea is translated into an Eau-de-cologne style. The re-balanced citrus and green notes in the top take some of the bitter birch tar edge off the basic fragrance and enliven it just enough to make it a good warn-weather wear. The trouble is that it's nearly impossible to find; but the trade-off is that the bottle I have is huge! Jean-Claude Ellena has done a great job on this one!
    I find this version of Déclaration very energizing and invigorating. It hangs around just enough, with good sillage, but it's not a one-two punch. With warm weather approaching, I find myself looking forward to the treat of wearing this again.

    Yr good bud,
