I DREAMED ON A SUNDAY……. GEORGE by JARDINS D’ECRIVAINS (2012)

 

virginia-woolf

 

A muted, but buffeted, neroli, masculinised warmly by subtle, aromatic undertones of tobacco leaf, coffee, and lavender-like, bergamot anecdotes – while heliotrope, myrrh and Peru balsam keep things steady, pleasant, yet somewhat ghostly in tone, beneath, George, by Jardins d’Ecrivains, comes across as a soul-appeasing cologne. Curious, this understated, yet spirited perfume, is perfect for a day of reading, writing, and innerward basking, in the disengaged, soft-light distinction of Sunday.

    . To stay forever at that bureau and let the dreams take you …..albeit only for a Sunday aftrnoon.
    Jardins d’ Ecrivains, sounds intriguing and Georges as well. Tobaco, coffee, lavender, heliotrope, all those appeal to my nose. Neroli and myrrh I don’t know, but I like spice and wood. To ask what they smell like is to ask whether they smell like themselves, I suppose.
    Is Georges all right for a wintry cologne, as I have also summer scents?
    The summer ones are more light, fresh and pungent. For a wintry one I’m looking more for the flannel pyama, dressing gown style.

  2. This is somewhere in between I think. Warm, but light. Soulful enough to please, but not so piercing and poetic as to be distracting. I quite like it.

    You, the scent tones, the desk, George Flamboyant Sand, have hooked me. I’ll start looking for her, first in sample form, before buying the parfum.u

    • But George Sand was a very different review, a different perfume (it smells a bit like Opium). Is there a parfum version of this one?

      I don’t know if it is that excitement worthy, but it’s most definitely worth a sample

  4. Sounds like gorgeous, summery nostalgia
