    Fou d'Absinthe by L'Artisan Parfumeur - One is initially treated to a bittersweet blast from the stimulating melange of greenness spurred by ansinthe, with its dusty, dry, medicinal dimensions; angelica, with its heavy, sweet, musky attributes; star anise, with its smoky, rich, licorice character and black currant, with its strong, fruity bouquet tinged with a cat urine slant. Percolating with a faint backdrop of a coniferous forest, this somewhat brisk blend meanders to the inviting heart. Here, woody clove, spicy-sweet ginger, cinnamon-like nutmeg and a hint of lively pepper shower the green opening, and impart their warmth, while resourceful patchouli adds a warm earthiness with its slight nutty and musky overtures. The foresty background is still here, and carries this flavorful concoction to the awaiting base. Robust conifers take center stage with the fresh and slightly camphorous woodiness of pine needles and the balsamic, christmas tree aroma of firs. Cistus bestows its terpenic and pine-like facets and vague illusions of amber and leather. A faintly rugged and quintessentially outdoorsy drydown ensues. This all-season, masculine composition has good projection, a 12-inch, scent cloud, and very good longevity, 10 hours; and should be experienced, especially on cool evenings.

    I've been sampling Nio from Xerjoff lately. While it is crazy expensive and probably a little better for warmer weather. I found it to be a very nice citrusy green fragrance.

    Next time I send you I'll include it. Coincidentally I graciously got it from Cacio.

    Because of it (metal) I can now recognize Hyacinth. I was almost could detect it in other perfumes like Bas de Soie but smelling Metal secured my recognition of it. Hyacinth is actually nice IMO.

    new? fresh and green?


    I got just the thing - Maison Martin Margiela - Untitled (or L'Eau)
    NEW SPLIT - Tom Ford Lavender Palm 50ml in Atomizer - DISCONTINUED!. .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    C&S Vetiver Vert. It should have been named 'Green Spice', as I get very very little vetiver out of it. If you go into it thinking 'Green Spice' instead of Vetiver, you'll be pleasantly suprised, and I don't like any of C&S other offerings.
