    Hermès
    Bel Ami
    (1986)
    Jean-Louis Sieuzac
    Chypre
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Basil Oil, Bergamot Oil, Clary Sage Oil, Lemon, Mandarin, Petitgrain
    Middle Notes: Carnation, Cedar, Jasmin, Orris, Patchouli, Vetiver
    Base Notes: Castoreum, Labdanum, Leather, Oakmoss, Styrax, Vanilla
    ------------------
    I have the old formulation, in the old bottle. It is a very strange accord, with some contradictions, but as in beautiful musical counterpoint, all the suspensions and discords are resolved as you go along. The clary sage in the top note, along with the basil and bergamot, is a green start, the herbal basil and wine-like clary sage playing off in counterpoint. Florals and woods with orris root in the heart also makes some resolutions necessary, and these are found in an oriental base with its own outliers of castoreum and leather. A strange, but beautiful beast. This is like having a friend who is a bit of a diamond in the rough: At first things may be a bit unsettling and strange, but after true natures are known, you wouldn't be parted for the world.

    I have come to love MPG's "Jardin du Nil"... the amazing interplay of cold - warm from the mint, flowers and woods makes it to me the best in this field.
