"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical...It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government." - Thomas Jefferson
Wonderful scent, and I like the older-style bottle.

Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

Finally! A friend bought over a few bottles from Yohji in London. This re-release has been handled with care - a couple of days wearing it and I sense no dissonant notes, no cheap 'fallback' synthetics to 'accommodate modern tastes'. It may be a little more 'tightly packed' as a piece of work - something I notice with M, Chypre Palatin, Diaghilev - a lot of the more recent attempts at doing something of quality without the benefit of some of the more airy, spacious restricted ingredients, but it is still salubrious and makes you just want to a deep breath and go 'yeah'.
I hope it becomes more widely available.

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..."
