Cartier Les Heures du Parfum XII L’Heure Mystérieuse (2009) Mathilde Laurent Floral Oriental
•Notes: Jasmine, Patchouli, Coriander, Elemi, Incense, Nutmeg
A floral-oriental with good projection and sillage early on, gradually toning down to a tad closer to the skin. The coriander, nutmeg, and elemi in the mix keep the scent fresh and somewhat spicy, while the jasmine heart and the woody-oriental base make it smooth and creamy. This wears nicely on the skin, the quality of the ingredients making it pleasant, if not exactly ground-breaking. The warmest of Les Heures de Cartier series thus far, it is the most soothing to the senses, and also the most mysterious, hence the sobriquet, L'Heure Mystérieuse: Midnight, the witching hour — bewitching indeed!
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.
And happy weekend everybody

Going out for dinner: Egoiste
Acqua di Parma Colonia
Waves by Cerchi nell' Acqua.
Notes: bergamot, opopanax, jasmine, iris, lavender.
According to the makers, Cerchi nell' Aqua perfumes don't follow the standard 'scent pyramid', but there is nonetheless some development to this fragrance. In the beginning, lavender and jasmine are most prominent, with a background of bergamot. Over time, the iris becomes dominant, with a background of opopanax.
I'd consider this a floral, with jasmine and iris predominating. Not particularly masculine, but probably wearable by at least some men.
