    Tom Ford Private Blends Black Violet (2007) Chypre
    -----------------
    Top Notes: Citrus Fruits, Fruity Notes •Middle Notes: Black Violet •Base Notes: Moss, Woody Notes
    ------------------

    Strange and a little raspy at first, this eventually sorts out to a very subtly resinous place after passing through some violet-evocative notes. I say "violet-evocative" because this is not the modern take on violet, which is more about violet leaf than it is about the elusive floral violet, which is nearly impossible to distill from the plant and must be hinted at through the use of ionone and other synthetics. The "violet" in this fragrance takes after the floral side in spades. It is well balanced, however, with citrus and other fruity notes in the top, and nicely anchored in a mossy-woody base. This gives the scent the feel of a chypre. It's a fairly deep take on the title player, but then most of the Special Blends are at least somewhat deep and dark. This one, though, does manage to end on a subtler note. It becomes quite soft and elusive at the end. In my book, it's one of the better ones from this series.

    Guerlain Heritage. I'm wearing this for the first time in about two years...it smells a little "sharper" than I remember. Reminds me of Zino Davidoff quite a bit today. It's a brand new bottle of the EDT version.

    Guerlain's Tonka Impériale, "between gingerbread and chocolate," food-loving Sylvaine Delacourte puts it, as pleasing as Cologne du 68 but executed at a level of quality and restrain that brings forth sensory effects of exquisite Parisian leather goods and fine cigars. A pine note adds to the gingerbread aroma and its accompanying atmosphere of fireplaces and furred walks in snowy winter woods. Like the previous L'Art et la Matière fragrances, Tonka Impériale doesn't have much of a development once applied, although the opening bergamot-rosemary-almond-jasmine accord has its own brandied vibe, a soberer variant of Jean-Paul Guerlain's boozy Spiritueuse Double Vanille.
