Dries down to a gorgeous sandalwood base, but that tobacco absolute is quite something. Fascinating, but not an easy wear for me.

Eau de Toilette
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..."

Hermessence Paprika Brasil by Hermes
Today, the iris in this really came through, sharply. I made a connection to the iris in this & in No. 19 vintage EdC by Chanel. The Hermes doesn't have those aldehydes but it has a tart, almost salty quality to it that is distinctive & very tenacious. I love this stuff on a hot Spring day like today.
