    Christian Dior
    Bois d'Argent
    (2004)
    Annick Menardo
    Aromatic Oriental Cologne
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Juniper Berries, Cypress, Iris
    Middle Notes: Myrrh, Patchouli
    Base Notes: Amber, Woody Notes, Musk, Vanilla, Honey, Leather
    ------------------

    Woody, spicy, oriental. A hint of leather in the base and the civilizing influence of iris in the top. Some people find this a bit sweet, with honey and amber, but I prefer to think of the juniper, cypress, myrrh and patchouli. It seems to me that these balance the sweetness and never really let it dominate the scent overall. This is a bracing scent to me, it keeps me focused and energizes me. While I mostly turn to it in cold weather, it seems perfectly suited for cool summer nights as well. It can make a very nice dressed-up evening scent.

    Thumbs up Re: S o t D, Wednesday, 12 May 2010


    ( from samples )
    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..."

    Felt the need for a "guy's" frag this ayem....specifically spices and woods, with maybe some incense and amber and vetiver thrown in.

    Voila!!
