    Yves Saint-Laurent M7 (2002) Jacques Cavallier, Alberto Morillas Amber Oriental
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Rosemary •Middle Notes: Vetiver, Agarwood •Base Notes: Amber, Musk, Mandrake Root
    ------------------
    Strange and wonderful, a congeries of exotic notes, from agarwood (oud) right down to mandrake root. Along the way, there are such commonplaces as bergamot, mandarin, rosemary, amber, musk, and vetiver, but the exotics really transform the usual suspects into strange beasts in and of themselves. The overall effect is one of mysterious, slightly pharmaceutical exuberance and sensuality. Mandrake is a plant steeped in lore, a member of the deadly nightshade family (along with belladonna), a plant that induces delirium; and whose resemblance, because of its bifurcated root, to a human figure with arms and legs, caused it to be used in arcane magical rituals. John Donne, the 17th century Anglican priest and mystic, wrote in his famous Song:

    "Go and catch a falling star
    "Get with child a mandrake root,
    "Tell me where all past years are
    "Or who cleft the devil's foot,
    "Teach me to hear mermaids singing,
    "Or to keep off envy's stinging,
    "And find
    "What wind
    "Serves to advance an honest mind."

    Like the lyric, M7 is mystical, magical, and profound.

    Subtil by Salvatore Ferragamo

    "Subtil for men is a blend of classics, urban elegance and sensuality. Spicy freshness of cardamom, ginger and mandarin orange, followed by an aquatic note of lotus is in the top. This freshness continues in the heart of the fragrance with laurel. Nutmeg blossom and violet give a delicate accord to the whole composition. The sensual and masculine base is made of dry amber, patchouli and musk. The perfume was created in 2003." From Fragrantica.com
    +"Do you spray below the waist?"
    +"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing,
    you will be successful." - Albert Schweitzer
    +"All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you." - Dr. W. Dyer
