Maître Parfumeur & Gantier
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,
"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.

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.

I just got this rarity in the mail today,
so, of course, that's what I'm in!
- Eau de Parfum -
Patou ph Prive
Voyage d'Hermes (sample).
Sample day it is (both for the second time)...
left wrist: Myrrhe Ardente - Annick Goutal // I love myrrh, but do you have to present with so little charm in a perfume?
right wrist: Eau des Iles - MPG // What a cocktail! Something is still going wrong for my nose (anise-like together with ylang ylang?). Smells very outdated to me, but I can see its distinctiveness.
