Moss Breches by Tom Ford (2007)

First of all, this is Moss Breches, not Moss BREECHES. So, those expecting a Mr. Greenpants fougere will not find it here. Breches is a region in France, and any moss in the fragrance is difficult to find. Thus, the name is a bit misleading. The scent is somewhat sweet, fairly spicy (cinnamon, cloves) with hints of wood. The beeswax gives a honeyed richness. There are herbal notes listed, but they don't leap out at me. So, the scent is not really green at all. It is a honeyed, spicy brown sort of scent. Pleasant, and probably comforting on a cool day.
Notes: Woods, Warm spice, Beeswax absolute, Moroccan clary sage, Hungarian tarragon, Corsican rosemary, Labdanum, Patchouli, Benzoin
Update a few hours later -- the scent develops a sweet, vanilla note which I don't like. Rules it out of contention for me.

Never had the chance to try this one yet. Hopefully a sample or something will pop up one of these days.
