Apparition Homme Intense by Ungaro
Guerlain L'Art et la Matière
Tonka Impériale (2010) Thierry Wasser Oriental
•Top Notes: Rosemary •Middle Notes: Tonka Bean, Spices, Honey •Base Notes: Vanilla, Woody Notes, Tobacco, Amber
Initially, there is a blast of something that smells a bit like rum or brandy, but this is ephemeral. Soon the scent begins to show off its title component, tonka bean. When this appears, it seems a bit muddied at first, but that, too, soon resolves, and a clear honey note emerges alongside the tonka. Then, in rapid succession, vanilla, tobacco, and amber. Strangely, the real signature of this waits for the end, which is a while in coming: with all the others setting the stage, a spicy-woody rosemary steals in, and makes this creation truly beautiful. There is a definite unity of style among the L'Art et la Matière series, and this one fits right in, somewhere between Angélique Noire and Bois d'Arménie.
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.

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.

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..."

"The plant that you have in your home - have you ever truly looked at it? Have you allowed that familiar yet mysterious being we call a plant to teach you its secrets? Have you noticed how deeply peaceful it is? How it is surrounded by a field of stillness? The moment you become aware of a plant's emanation of stillness and peace, that plant becomes your teacher."
-- Eckhart Tolle
