Serge Lutens Borneo 1834 (2008) Christopher Sheldrake Woody Oriental
•Notes: Indonesian Patchouli, Cardamom, Camphor, Galbanum, Cocoa, Vetiver, Licorice, Resins
Borneo 1834 is not quite like anything else. The camphor note seems to come on quite strong on my skin right off, with just a hint of the cocoa from the base note. This strikes me as a rather strange combination, especially because I imagined the patchouli would chime in first, but on me, it waits a bit longer to appear. While it's waiting, a hint of white florals begins to emerge, along with the spicy edge of cardamom. Galbanum begins to enter the picture, and then, finally, the strains of patchouli begin to play, along with a touch of labdanum. This is a beautiful scent which unfolds quite dramatically, with good longevity and moderate sillage. Later, when the rest of the players have gone to bed, patchouli and cocoa remain to provide the famous signature of Borneo 1834 that everyone talks about.
Yr good bud,

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.

Jean - Claude Ellena ' s
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..."

CK One, it's too hot around here and i don't want to spend anything worth on a lazy friday monday of hot sun and doing nothing. Tonight i'll use something bolder... need some pure maltness now!

I'm all out with Guerlain Vetiver today. Old dark juice and underarm deodorant spray. There are times old forests have made me think of this smell.

Looking for: Creed caps
The amazing , one of the best vanillas I have ever smelt and fallen completely in love with . Thank you Matthew , my wallet will hate you soon
Vanille Aoud from M Micallef
This morning I've been testing two small decants out that I received. Left arm I have Bond No.9 MontaUK and on the right it's Creed Erolfa. The MontaUK is very similar to a Ronaldo Esper fragrance I own. Erolfa is not bad, nothing amazing on me and it's no way near as strong as some other Creed's.

L'Artisan Patchouli Patch
This has become my favorite patchouli fragrance. Just enough patchouli to provide a primal, earthy, satisfying feel without going overboard, surrounded by pleasant notes to avoid one being frowned upon in public places ..
Nostalgia by Santa Maria Novella
IMO, this is the ultimate day-at-the-country-club sort of fragrance. I always feel like a billionaire playboy, on my way to play tennis when I wear this. Of course, I was on my way to the office today...but still I felt like a million bucks. I'm glad I have a back up bottle of this. One of the few leathers I can wear in 100 degree temps.
