Diptyque Vetyverio (2010) Olivier Pescheux Spicy Floral Oriental
•Notes: Mandarin, Grapefruit, Lemon, Bergamot, Ylang-Ylang, Turkish Rose, Geranium, Vetiver, Carrot Seed, Nutmeg, Clove, Cedar
Vetyverio has a lot of citrus up top; florals and geranium in the heart with Haitian vetiver; and some unusual notes in the base: Java vetiver, carrot seed, nutmeg, clove, cedar. The two vetivers make an interesting contrast: the Haitian is a little more citrus-floral, the Java much woodier. What lingers at the end of this are the two vetivers, the spices, and the woods. I think you'd like this one, though it may be a little light for some tastes, and some might not be crazy about the first few minutes. I guess you'll just have to try it. Like most Diptyques, this is not extremely long-lasting, but not as bad in that department as some of their earlier ones. Sillage is moderate, but noticeable.
Yr good bud,

Poivre 23 Le Labo
Claudiae by Sigilli.
Top: green notes, tomato leaf, poppy
Middle: rose, ferula
Base: patchouli, musk
First in Fragrance seems to be selling this as a women's fragrance, but it doesn't seem overly feminine, at least to me. The floral notes here are present, but very much in the background; this seems to be very much an herbal/green scent.

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..."
