    Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur (1904) Jacques Guerlain Oriental
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Bergamot, Lavender, Verbena. •Heart Notes: Neroli, Jasmine, Cinnamon, Rose. •Base Notes: Patchouli, Tonka bean, Iris, Vanilla, Oak Moss, Amber, Civet
    ------------------

    This is another classic from a hundred years or so ago. The folk wisdom is that this was the follow-up EdT version of the 1889 Jicky. That may or may not be true... Now there is an EdT version of Jicky, and I can tell you, personally, I like Mouchoir de Monsieur much better. Other folk wisdom says there's civet in this, but Guerlain doesn't seem to confirm that... Are they just trying not to alarm the timid among us? Or is it possibly subsumed under "fern harmony?" I definitely smell something like an animalic note in this, but perhaps it's just because I want to believe it's really there.

    In any case, my take on this one is that it's a beautiful snapshot of what masculine elegance seemed like at the turn of the last century; and having said that, I want it to be the epitome of masculine elegance today as well! The feeling I get when I wear this is superb, like walking on air. No matter what's going on in my day-to-day pedestrian existence, I can't believe there's anything to be concerned about if I smell this good.

    Given the notes list of MdM, I don't know WHY I haven't tried it. It sounds divine!

    Joe, that's the good stuff! I bought a bottle at Saks in Cincinnati 17 years ago. Rich and very Euro.

    I'm in Creed Acier Aluminum. I just love it. I should have owned this years ago, but I'm glad to have it now thanks to a nice basenotes swap!
