Oakmoss Green Man

This chypre perfume is so dense and rich, wearing it is like being trapped in a steamed-up kitchen with all the windows and doors shut and the kettle filled with oak moss, myrrh and amber is boiling.

The Afternoon of a Faun is a distant relative of Mitsouku who lives in the forest and he doesn’t like to talk to anyone younger than 30.

Etat Libre d’Orange’s Charogne.

The top notes are very beautiful florals… when all is dissipated, the unusual leather, incense, cardamon take control and turn the scent completely odd and old-smelling, like a bouquet of wilted flowers stuffed in an antique leather luggage. I wear it occasionally.
