    Default What has the dreamiest dry down ever?

    I noticed today that though I think la nuit all around is a great fragrance it develops a certain smell in the dry down that is sublime, far exceeding what you'd expect from the opening. In your opinion what fragrances have drydowns ALONE that would render them masterpieces?

    For me: Siecle
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    It would have to be one of the Guerlain classics. Perhaps not Mitsouko, strangely. Maybe L'Heure Bleue (vintage, sorry!) or Habit Rouge for their warm, powdery spiciness that lingers well into the morning after the night before? Nobody does drydowns like Guerlain.

    Incidentally, another vote for a fragrance from the house of Guerlain. But, in my opinion: Mouchoir de Monsieur and Guerlain Homme Pininfarina Limited Edition EDP both have some of the richest, most creative, most surprisingly beautiful drydowns I experienced.

    I think Terre by Hermes is pure magic in drydown.
