    Cartier Must de Cartier pour Homme Essence (2000) Spicy Oriental
    ------------------
    Notes: Grapefruit, Anise, Cinnamon, Ginger, Cedar, Vetiver, Patchouli
    ------------------
    A spice-laden juice that has more of the oriental or aromatic fougère about it than any other genre (because of the tonka bean in the base, I guess).The top is largely citrus with a good dose of anise, the heart a warm and unusual accord of cinnamon and ginger, and in the base quite a pronounced woody air with sandalwood, cedarwood, vetiver, and patchouli. Except for the absence of floral notes, the Essence version of Must pour Homme seems recall the feminine version rather than the other masculine offering. This strikes me as a cool-to-cold weather scent, primarily because of the hearty spice accords, and at the same time it seems to suggest an evening or slightly more formal context than the plain Must pour Homme. The longevity and sillage are fairly tenacious, and the development, while somewhat limited, does tend to play out to a woodier place than where it starts. I find this very pleasant, a bit bracing and energizing, and an overall good thing. Kudos to Cartier for this!

    Damn, leave it to Neil Morris to develop a white-flower-centric scent I ADORE!
    Today for me it's Neil Morris Fragrances Moulin Rouge!

    MR notes: Black Tea, gardenia, jasmine sambac, plumeria, rose, musk, wood notes.

    Heaven!
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    I've sampled Jacques Fath green water today. I've sampled this in the past and gave it a miss for some reason, but I've found it lovely today. There are similarities with other mint fragrances that have bergamot, orange, lemon, herbs notes etc but I've added this to my list to either buy a bottle of in the near future, or certainly get hold of a decant. It's no Selection Verte, but it's a damn site cheaper.

    Let us know what you think of this one. I've always loved this fragrance and all it's flankers. Interested!
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
