12:16 a.m., finally home after a long week on the road. My favorite homey/comfort scent: Dior Homme Intense. Good morning to the basenoters on the other side of the world. Good night to the western hemisphere.
Hermès Eau des Merveilles (2004) Ralf Schwieger/Nathalie Fesithauer Citrus Chypre
•Top Notes: Vetiver, Oak, Cedar •Middle Notes: Ambergris •Base Notes: Lemon, Orange, Elemi, Pink Pepper
This is the one that's supposed to have an "inverted pyramid"; i. e., the top notes are in the base, the base notes are in the top, and the middle notes are... well, still in the middle. The EdT smells to me remarkably similar to the later Terre d'Hermès of Ellena, but it is missing that "silex" note that's said to remind one of the smell of sun-warmed stones. On the whole this is rather unisex to me, though it's labeled as being for women. The progression of this from layer to layer is rather hard to detect for me. It seems almost as if all the levels are present from beginning to end, making it a bit more linear than most Hermès scents. Still, it's something of a tour de force, and deserves some credit for that.
Yr good bud,

A cheap cologne:
Intesa sextreame unisex by Mirato
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..."
