Opium pour Homme - YSL

Noir De Noir Tom Ford
AMOUAGE OPUS I
A glorious Chypre fragrance, built around a warm, floral heart of Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Rose, Lily of the Valley and Tuberose. Top Notes of Bigarade, Plum and Cardamom add spice and individuality, whilst woody base notes of Guaiac, Cedar and Sandalwood, along with Tonka Bean, Vetiver and the House's signature note of Frankincense provide an epic and bold closing chapter. The narrative, olfactory evolution of this fragrance was inspired by the start of a pilgrimage in search of knowledge.
Top Notes: Bergamot, Lavender, Neroli, Artemisia, Aldehyde, Green Note
Heart Notes: Jasmin, Carnation, Orris, Vetiver, Cinnamon, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Rose
Base Notes: Leather, Moss, Vanilla, Civet

Fragrance safari day. Starting out with a light spray of Bleu de Chanel. It's lovely.

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..."

I'm bespritzed with half a dozen leather chypres right now but later I'll join Roberto in Hermes' comfortable and gentlemanly Rocabar.

Things are things because of Mind--Zen Buddhist saying
Lot's of orientals being worn today...I think I will follow suit and choose something a bit drier as the day is bright, cool & sunny.
