    Default Is there a clary sage bomb?

    I'm curious about what clary sage smells like, and if there is a cologne with a lot of it.

    Chanel's Antaeus opens with lots of clary sage... I'm sure there might be better options, but this sprang to mind.

    I notice clary sage most in Andy Tauer's Vetiver Dance and Lonestar Memories and also in Miller Harris Terre de Bois but it is not the most prominent note in those fragrances.

    Yeah, Antaeus. Dry sage and florals -----> dusty beeswax and ambery leather. A favorite of mine.

    I have some clary sage EO and it is VERY powerful. Sage and celery leaves is its character.

    I swear I'm not being a smartass, but save your money and go smell the sage in your kitchen cabinet. Notice how it smells sweet, almost like tea more than bright herbs. It's a beautiful smell...

    Clary sage and sage are not the same, and I don't think they smell the same either?

    buy some clary sage essential oil. it's inexpensive and good to have around. as mentioned above, it's not sage. clary sage is a widely used e.o. with multiple applications. sage has strong therapeutic properties but covers a smaller spectrum.

    off hand, leonard pour homme and patou pour homme have a fairly strong clary sage note.

    good e.o. books - the complete book of essential oils and aromatherapy by worwood and the fragrant mind by worwood

    If I`m not wrong, Dior Jules is very proeminent in clary sage.
    I remember that one of my lush solid fragrances also had something that reminded me of clary sage. I think is the one called Americam Cream.

    isn't that sage?
    clary sage smells herbal/aromatic as well, but it is very different from sage otherwise. i've smelled it only a couple of times but from what i remember there where some sweet amber, floral and cassis/berries like notes in there.
