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..."

Subtil pour Homme 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. "

Chanel Les Exclusifs de Chanel
Bois des Îles (1925) Ernest Beaux Woody Oriental/Floral Aldehyde
•Top Note: Aldehydes, Bergamot, Neroli, Peach •Middle Note: Jasmine, Rose, Lily of the Valley, Ylang-Ylang •Base Note: Vetiver, Sandal, Benzoin, Musk
Very lush blend of sandalwood and floral notes brightened by aldehydes, fruit notes, and citrus, and then richly anchored in woody-resiny musk. Vetiver and benzoin contribute some of that richness. There seems to be a bit of amber, too, but that isn't in the original pyramid, and may be a modification of the recent reissue in the EdT strength Exclusifs de Chanel series. This can certainly be worn by a man, especially as a special-occasion evening scent. The florals and fruit notes are very well balanced by the woods and the darker resin and musk notes. Ernest Beaux was a genius, and his work is timeless.
