Rashômon's Review of French Lover / Bois d'Orage by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

Well this scent combines ingredients that would actually make their co-existense seem like "the clash of the titans". Incense, pepper, galbanum, vetiver all in one borderline green composition that resembles the odour of green grass and dirt while you have placed your nose a few inches from the ground. The incense is present throughout and there is also a muskiness and smokiness to it. A personal favorite form the Malle line composed by the great Pierre Bourdon.
