    "The scent is made up of three different types of woods, Oud, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Cypress wood and Gaiac wood. Woody notes: Patchouli, vetyver and synthetic woods: Javanol, Cashmeran and Pachminol."

    Here's the bottle & box-

    Hmmm... would prefer it if they spelled out the note pyramid instead. But yeah, this seems pretty interesting.

    Count me in as interested.

    Odysseusm: Thats what I was thinking. The film has a look thats somewhere between Guillermo Del Toro and those Tool music videos with the stop motion animation.

    I with you there. Something about it gave me the creeps - it did not make me want to buy anything, it made me want to flee!

    The Brothers Quay have been doing stop-motion animation for decades, and all their films are extremely creepy.

    I wonder how it will differ from their very dry, woody Monocle One: Hinoki.

    I was so excited for this, until I saw the posted notes above. NO MORE OUD! Ugh, I hate the stuff. I'll still try this out, but my hopes have been severely lessened. I wonder if they are going to position this as a new addition to the CDG "core" fragrances, CDG Original, CDG2, CDG2Man, CDG 3, etc?

    Loved the video! Excited about the fragrance!

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    Thanks for posting the pics of the boxes NEoTY26 - they're beautiful (as I expected).

    Anyone know what song is, in the video? Reminds me of something the Kronos Quartet might record.

    Sounds like they're throwing in every woody molecule and the kitchen sink cabinet into the juice. Strangely, there's no pine/fir balsam listed for the brew. I would say I'm intrigued but CdG last few offerings have left me high and quite dry. If I knew who the Perfumer was, then I may get excited depending of course who it is.

    I'm very interested and I'm hopeful. This really sounds like "CdG" the way it should be. Let's wait and see.

    As for the juice, I hope this is sufficiently different from CdG's many other woody fragrance to be worth notice.

    Honestly, I think this would appeal to me more if fewer woods were invited to the party. A fragrance highlighting pine, rosewood, or cypress would probably pique my interest more than what sounds like a bit of a jumble.

    Turns out is is Antoine Lie (Gucci Rush, CdG Daphne, etc)

    There is a video of him at the premier:

    & one in french with Christian Astuguevieille the creative director talking about the fragrance (anyone care to translate? )

    Christian says that the scent is very luxurious, beautiful, gets to the heart of wood... gives love for patchouli, incense, resin... a different sort of scent from the daily habit.... (that sort of thing)

    IMO, you can never have enough wood.

    Well, I can think of various situations where wood would not be too appropriate :P
