    Default Derby- A Revelation.

    Hello Basenoters,

    It's strange how sometimes a fragrance you have owned for quite a while can change for you. Derby over the last few days has done this for me when it has sat in my cupboard for ages only being taken out once in a while to enjoy.

    The weather in Queensland has been hot and humid and the other day as it cooled ever so slightly I took out Derby and sprayed it on before I left home. It was truly beautiful and the mint in it mixed so well and I thought to myself "This perfect scent has been sitting right under my nose the whole time and I've never fully appreciated it!!" It is so very classy though I feel I could wear it anytime and at any time of the year.

    I have decants of both the original and the reissue and am searching out more as I believe it will be my- I never thought I would say this- signature scent. I really love both- I find the reissue brighter as I detect more peppermint and the original is just incredibly blended-darker and broodier to my nose. I do have a love for leather chypres and add the mace and moss to it for me and you've got something special.

    So thanks to Guerlain for making this exquisite fragrance! It's a pity that it's so hard to find around here!!!!

    Best wishes,

    La vita breve, la morte vien.

    My collection would be incomplete if I didn't have Derby in it. It's a classic.

    Great post, Koala. Derby is one helluva fragrance. I'll have to snag some more samples of it.

    It feels great to find something you truly love. Just don't wear it too much!
