Paco Rabanne Paco Rabanne pour Homme (1973) Jean Martel Aromatic Fougère
•Top Notes: Rosemary, Clary Sage, Rosewoood, Laurel •Middle Notes: Lavender, Geranium •Base Notes: Moss, Honey, Musk, Amber, Tonka Bean
One of the early so-called aromatic (or herbal) fougères. This class of "fern" scents (fougère means "fern" in French) traditionally include the trio of oakmoss, clary sage, and coumarin (in this one, that's the tonka bean); they also often include lavender. Jean Martel's take on this cleverly introduced rosemary and laurel. These are both herbal-resinous notes that aid in yielding a much stronger projection than the earlier fougère scents. The rosewood in the top adds a fresh, floral-woody note, and the honey in the base gives some depth, richness, and a bit of animal "sweat." The times were right for this pumped-up version of the fresh, lighter masculine EdT. It was, after all, the era of the muscle car...
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.

NICOLAÏ POUR HOMME
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 boldest burst of citrus known.
Then the sweetness of childhood lemonade stands.
Broom flower and cypress wrap themselves close to my heart.
The wood soothes and anchors the gay, cheerful yellow.
