Alain Delon to the gym early am, then Embruns D'Essaouira by Montale. I got the latter in a trade with a Basenoter but I can't remember who it was I love the scent.

Montale - Aoud Cuir d'Arabie
Hermès Eau d'Hermès (2001) Edmond Roudnitska Aromatic Fougère
•Top Notes: Bergamot, Petitgrain, Lemon Tree, Lavender •Middle Notes: Sage, Coriander, Cardamom, Cloves, Cinnamon, Jasmine, Geranium •Base Notes: Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Labdanum, Cedar, Moss, Birch, Caraway
An incredibly smooth, slightly leathery eau chaude-style of EdT. The top notes are classic eau-de-cologne formulation, citrus with a dash of lavender for an herbal-floral effect. The middle notes combine spicy notes (among which cinnamon predominates) with green-herbal sage and florals. The base is a conflation of chypre (labdanum and moss) and fougère (tonka bean), but the lavender in the top tilts this to an overall spicy fougère eau chaude family. Good longevity and sillage. Warm, full, yet not quite rich, it is elegantly confident; nevertheless it is quite genteel in its restraint. Very much a "class act."
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.

Fantastic scent of Lavender / Galbanum
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..."

Second go of my fav retesting:
Caraceni - 1913.
Very, very sharp.
A prominent rose, backed up with clove. Slowly there's a vanilla/lavender/vertiver vibe kicking in, not unlike a better, toned down Pour un Homme, as I said, in the background.
Very good stuff and extremely formal.
But I dont think it will make the cut.
