It smells like an industrial version of the shrubs in the high chaparral of California that they call 'creosote bushes' (larrea tridentata).

    It seems so odd that I love this smell, but I can't stand notes of petrol or rubber in perfumes.

    Not to get too technical in a scent forum, but is creosote the stuff or scent that is used in fresh asphalt? Or am I getting my industrial components mixed up??

    There is something great about fresh asphalt, and if you can catch it when it's dry enough not to throw up chunks and then do high speed driving especially in a convertible.... puts you in a nice zone, ultimate relaxation while going fast....

    Drained it! After some delicate nursing. I don't ever use tape on the threads - I think tape can contribute to evaporation.

    I've never thought of that, but now that you mention it they do smell similar, don't they? Someone here must know if there's creosote in asphalt.

    Maybe I'll ask in the DIY forum. Some of the chemnerds might know.

    It's a oily petroleum derivative, so it may smell a bit like asphalt, but it reminds me my youth in a very little village in France, near a train station, and the railway's woods were painted with creosote, back at this time, to prevent wood from being attacked by insects, and to protect it from water.

    Vintage only by virtue of being dead and gone:

    Le Canotier by Rogue Perfumery

    I loved this bitter, rather weedy vetiver with violet leaf and greenish-blond tobacco, but my opinion was not the popular one and Manny cut it loose. I also loved that Manny, a true sartorial dandy, would create an homage to the straw boater hat.

    My bottle only has about one use left in it after today. It's hard to say goodbye.

    According to this chemist, creosote is from coal and asphalt from petroleum, but they are related:

    Asphalt uses mostly pitch (in addition to petroleum distillates), which is the heaviest coal distillate. Coal tar creosote is made from heavy oils that are still lighter than pitch. Some of those oils might remain in the pitch, but I would guess the amount is incidental. Wood is generally impregnated with coal tar creosote using pressure, rather than just being coated with it, for exactly the reasons Jean-Sté says.

    Wood tar creosote, a similar but not identical substance, is used for smoking meat and “liquid smoke” flavoring. You might associate those food smells with that of railway ties, Cookie B.

    Ho. Lee. Crap. I would never have thought of that, but I'll bet you're right. I thought I was just associating it with the creosote bushes of the California high desert, but I'll bet it's unconsciously reminding me of barbeque too.

    Hmmm. Creosote. Lovely scent. Brings back childhood memories of Hot Summer days in the Country, placing pennies on the train rails to flatten and on the Coast rowboating around the wharf piles with it's addition of Sea Salt. Yummy!

    Now that my entire wardrobe, except for 7 boxes are all unpacked, the variety is back. Still the "perennials" like Eau Sauvage, Nobile, Bel Ami get their normal usage.

    Today's SOTD was Mouchoir de Monsieur. SOTN will be Booster or Monsieur Lanvin - could put both to one half of the body 🙂. Yet to plan tomorrow's. I did wear Kobe and Uden Overdose, couple of days ago, or maybe last weekend, think I put it on the SOTD thread.
