    "A well-balanced mix of flowers, foam and moss with resolute chypre"

    ...foam? Do they mean shaving cream, or... uhm... sea foam? Foam insulation? The head on a beer?

    I am curious though. This is a house I've barely scratched the surface on.

    Just saw this on Luckyscent but they are out of samples currently. Would be interested in hearing others' thoughts who have tried it.

    Just an FYI, I noticed this thread is in the male discussion forum, but Luckyscent and ELDO are classifying this as a more feminine-leaning fragrance. "A fragrance inspired by the fall of Patriarchal power", according to ELDO's marketing copy. It also looks like it contains tree moss, which is less complex and nuanced than oakmoss. Maybe this is how they were able to do a modern 'chypre' in the face of current IFRA restrictions on the use of oakmoss.

    Have had it for about two months - a very nice chypre.

    One of my most worn fragrances since I purchased this in December. Surprised it hasn't received more attention here because its really different and Basenoters alley. Delicious, projects well and has great longevity. Recommend highly.
