Dior Eau Sauvage (1966) Edmond Roudnitska Herbal Lemon Chypre
•Top Notes: Lemon, Rosemary, Basil. Bergamot, Fennel, Fruity Notes,
•Middle Notes: Jasmine, Rose, Carnation, Orris Root, Coriander, Patchouli, Petitgrain, Sandalwood
•Base Notes: Oakmoss, Vetiver, Musk, Amber
Rosemary, basil.... and something like jasmine, I think. And the pyramid above. That sounds like a more complete picture of this scent. Roudnitska's early classic. Very hesperidic, but balanced in a kind of extra strong form by some pretty muscular heart and base notes, beyond the old eau-de-cologne tradition.

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.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.

Since I'm flying on the Bijan for Men scent jet stream today I figured I'd post here too. Reminds me quite a lot of Yatagan, with an underlying sweetness. Kind of (as I described it over on the women's SoTD) the love child of Yatagan and Aramis. Sort of. Anyway, I like it.
