    Christian Dior Bois d'Argent (2004) Annick Menardo Aromatic Oriental Cologne
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Juniper Berries, Cypress, Iris •Middle Notes: Myrrh, Patchouli •Base Notes: Amber, Woody Notes, Musk, Vanilla, Honey, Leather
    ------------------

    Woody, spicy, oriental. A hint of leather in the base and the civilizing influence of iris in the top. Some people find this a bit sweet, with honey and amber, but I prefer to think of the juniper, cypress, myrrh and patchouli. It seems to me that these balance the sweetness and never really let it dominate the scent overall. This is a bracing scent to me, it keeps me focused and energizes me. While I mostly turn to it in cold weather, it seems perfectly suited for cool summer nights as well. It can make a very nice dressed-up evening scent.
    Yr good bud,

    Today, for my birthday (still on a third shift schedule here so I'm up at night, testing this) I'm sampling


    H&G Skarb

    I don't really get melancholy in this scent at all. Yes, there is a watery accord, and it smells like very pure water - hyper real, almost - but this is juxtaposed against the light and dry earthiness of the carrot seeds, myrrh and lovage. The chamomile provides a bright, slightly lemony floral sweetness, and this note lasts for a long time. It smells golden, almost straw-like. Later, it fades a bit and the lovage becomes more noticeable adding a slight saltiness to the scent. It smells pleasantly of fresh sweat. The myrrh and carrot seeds suggest dry, perhaps clay rich earth, and come out even more further into the drydown. The myrrh also provides a bit of a brown sugar note, and earlier in the development the fusion of notes presents something like a bread accord. The addition of the brown sugar note there is welcomed and makes it smell delicious, if not traditionally gourmand.

    In some ways the scent calls to mind Sel de Vetiver. They both are salty, airy, slightly citric, and smell of sun baked skin. Sel de Vetiver is more ocean side while Skarb is more dry autumn meadow. Both are, however, quite beautiful and natural.

    I do feel like I have not perceived all that the scent has to offer though. The aquatic notes were like nothing I've ever smelled and I did seem to go lose track of them rather quickly, only to pick them up randomly here or there for the first hour or two. I guess melancholy could be construed in the opening through those aquatic notes - it did conjure up the image of the dry meadow finally getting much needed rain. One of those quick but torrential downpours. Melancholy more in the sense of mourning the transition of autumn into winter than a human melancholy, though, imo. It's really beautiful.

    "The top notes open in distinguishing frankincense and myrrh scent, which lead to the mysterious heart of solemn smoky and balsamic notes. The dry vanilla and soft French chamomile notes tame and make this inscrutable mystery closer to us.

    The main notes are several kinds of incense, chamomile, vanilla, patchouli, rosewood and ambrette."
