    Fleurs de Bois

    Lynn Harris
    Green Floral Chypre
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Galbanum, Grass, Green Mandarin, Lemon, Rosemary
    Middle Notes: Rose, Jasmine, Iris
    Base Notes: Oakmoss, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Myrrh, Birch
    ------------------

    This is a very nice green scent with a good supporting base of oakmoss and woodsy notes, notably patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, and birch. The birch here doesn't make a particularly leathery. The tangerine in the top will do for bergamot, so I guess this would pass as a woody-green-floral chypre with rose, jasmine and iris doing the heavy lifting for the florals section. There is a touch of incense in this, which is due to the resinous quality of rosemary; any maker of church incense knows that you can atone for inferior frankincense by adding a little good rosemary oil into the mix. Galbanum, grass, and rosemary are a good green note here, with just enough of a hint of dissonance between the dense rosemary and the slightly sharp-and-sour grass note.
    Yr good bud,

    It's sampling time...
    After yesterday's SotE - Histoire de Parfums 1725 Casanova, which obviously stands for a soft-spoken, shy coaxer (sillage!), but overall nice and sharing a certain feel of a discreet Le Male...
    today it felt like a full wearing of Parfumerie Generale's Querelle
    + right wrist Aomassai and further up the arm Musc Maori (quite a double yuk)
    SotE tonight will then be a full wearing of Bois Blond in order to conclude the PG sampling over the past few days.

    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..."

    "...The history of perfumery before this subdivision of niche was manufactured, both literally and imaginatively, is a long one, with thousands upon thousands of fragrances. The true fragrance lover takes each fragrance one at a time, and examines it preferably outside of the imaginatively manufactured categories and, in doing so, builds up a steady, informed basis for seasoned comparative judgments based on the sampling and information gathered from such sampling. This is why any one on the board who ever has anything particular interesting to say about fragrances as fragrances rather than as categorical constructs always has an abiding interest and passion for all kinds of fragrances and not just a narrow niche of fragrances. Conversely, the "niche whores," the more and more narrow their interests become, the more and more they mimic the ad copy of the very companies they worship. I know whose posts I like to read..."

    “Perfume is decidedly not about two things: it isn’t about memory and it isn’t about sex. Perfume is about beauty and intellect,” .......... “A perfume is a message in a bottle—not a smell—and the message is written by the perfumer and read by the person who smells it.”

    Just received bottle of SL l'eau, and I really love it. Yes, it does go well with laundry-fresh clothes. I find it long-lasting and of very high quality. Far from being a run of the mill "fresh," it actually does smell like clothes that have been recently laundered and ironed, right down to the slightly musty or burnt smell of fresh-ironed cotton or linen.

    I'm wearing it today to go with dressy meetings, a doctor appointment, and a haircut at a very nice salon. It's a very versatile scent.

    To those who sampled and dismissed it quickly - give it another try. There's more going on here than you might think at first.

    This is likely to become one of my top scents for summer.
