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..."

Creed Bois du Portugal (1987) Woody Oriental
•Top Notes: Bergamot, French Lavender •Heart Notes: Cedarwood •Base Notes: Mysore Sandalwood, Bourbon Vetiver, Amber
One of Creed's most popular and best offerings. This is a fresh woody-oriental fougère-style fragrance of good breeding, the sort of thing a proper gentleman would wear to his club or a board meeting. For me, lacking such lofty venues in which to shine, it does for work at times, but more often for a nice evening out. Bergamot, lavender, cedarwood, sandalwood, Bourbon vetiver, amber (perhaps some hint of cinnamon?): very balanced, yet well and closely blended, with a very slight development, as befits such a stately fragrance. The longevity on me is about average; the sillage is quite marked at the beginning, but tapers off gradually, making a discreet exit. Too correct? Perhaps, for some, but not without a certain charm, and above all breeding... (How we do hate that word 'class'!)
Yr good bud,

Serge Lutens' Miel de Bois (from a sample)
This has been so hated that I only now got around to sampling it. I rather like it so far. I get absolutely no hint of that infamous urine note -- to those who say this smells like urine, you've obviously been having the privilege of smelling some rather top grade urine as far as aroma is concerned.
