Today's sync is with the dashing compass that is Hommage à l'homme Voyageur by Lalique, a cardamom reflection wrapped in a brilliant forthcoming heart of patchouli, papyrus and our dear vetiver that leaves gorgeous ink on a soft mossy amber base that pays hommage indeed!

Happy Vetiver Wednesday everyone!

I'll be syncin' in with the 1969 classic Calandre by Paco Rabanne, a shimmering green floral aldehydic sheen of rose, lily of the valley; geranium, orris and jasmine, deepened beautifully in moss heap and bits, with sweet caresses from our dear vetiver... Surely, I'm going to be rollin' in the morning dew!

Wishing everyone a Happy Vetiver Wednesday!

Syncing with Yatagan today. It's been on my radar forever, and thanks to a generous basenoter I finally get to try it. (Huge thanks!)

Incredible stuff. Deep, rustic greenery on a bed of soft animalics. Pine needles, galbanum, artemisia, castoreum, oregano, basil, mint, vetiver, patchouli, smooth leather. The vetiver is there to pencil in a hint of sharpness from the inside out, but it’s a supporting role. Makes me think of a druid's cloak found on the forest floor. This smells more like a modern niche scent than an ancient masculine (I’d pick this over Antaeus any day), and a surprisingly balanced one. I don't find this particularly "funky" or aggressively vegetal--no filth or celery detected, and it doesn't even scream "masculine" to my nose--but I know we all perceive these things differently. Just rich, resinous, and green.
