    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.

    ( 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..."

    Man, this site has really gone to shit. Seems like every person who knew anything about perfume has left the building, and I can see why.
