    Tom Ford Velvet Gardenia

    Spraying it first time today from my new bottle (a blind buy again). I am getting some tuberose (like in Carnal Flower) from it. I don't know what's the link between gardenia & tuberose. Yes, I can smell some mushrooms too. Not sure of the 'blue cheese' accord that I've read about in some reviews. I need to smell some Blue cheese first to conclude.
    Overall this is quite feminine (well that was expected wasn't it). I would say it's another winner from Tom Ford. It doesn't get a lot of points for originality though.

    This really suits the move into Spring here right now - I'm enjoying wearing it pretty regularly and getting to know it properly.

    Chanel Les Exclusifs de Chanel Bois des Îles (1925) Ernest Beaux
    Woody Oriental/Floral Aldehyde
    ------------------
    •Top Note: Aldehydes, Bergamot, Neroli, Peach •Middle Note: Jasmine, Rose, Lily of the Valley, Ylang-Ylang •Base Note: Vetiver, Sandal, Benzoin, Musk
    ------------------

    Very lush blend of sandalwood and floral notes brightened by aldehydes, fruit notes, and citrus, and then richly anchored in woody resiny musk. Vetiver and benzoin contribute some of that richness. There seems to be a bit of amber, too, but that isn't in the original pyramid, and may be a modification of the recent reissue in the EdT strength Exclusifs de Chanel series. This can certainly be worn by a man, especially as a special-occasion evening scent. The florals and fruit notes are very well balanced by the woods and the darker resin and musk notes. Ernest Beaux was a genius, and his work is timeless.
