Good Morning everyone. Have all a Great Friday
Eau de Lierre
Notes : cyclamen, green pepper, musk, ivy, woodsy notes, brazilian rosewood, geranium and ambergris.
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..."

Creed Aubépine-Acacia (1965) Floral Oriental
•Top: Bergamot, Galbanum •Middle: Hawthorn, Mimosa (Acacia) •Base: Ambergris
Aubépine-Acacia has a subtle drydown. After an initial burst of hawthorn, it settles into a lemon verbena for a few minutes, but be patient! On my skin, this then gives way to a beautiful marriage of hawthorn and Acacia farnesiana. The hawthorn is honey-like and a little reminiscent of almonds. This fragrance might appeal to women more than to a lot of men, but I don't think it's impossible for a confident man to wear.
"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.

I haven't worn this EDP for over a year and had forgotten how much I love it. I have a number of TF scents and for me this is one of his best.

A beautiful summer morning. I went outside to pick up the newspapers, and the air smelled a lot like Creed Green Valley. That has to be my Sotd now.
Happy Summer to the Basnoters!

This has been getting quite a few wears this couple of weeks. Reminds me somewhat of a rounder less powdery Chanel Cuir de Russie. Excellent stuff.
