II (Deux) by Cire Trudon ( 2017)




I am gasping for Spring. It has been cold for too long. And although ‘Deux’,  a brisk, intelligent-  if conservative – scent crafted by perfumer Lyn Harris for candlemaker Cire Trudon is not quite my usual style : serious, clear-eyed,  a determined hiker walking grim-lipped, alone through miles of undisturbed forest……this morning,  I did enjoy its sense of leaves, saplings and bitter, green, clenched coniferousness; the buds’ perennial perseverance on the branches, and the soon-to-come opening newness.

  1. Sounds like just the right antidote to to Winter Fatigue, N. I’m longing for Spring as well. It hasn’t been very cold here, but my gawd, the RAIN . . .

    Just found a vintage bottle of Balenciaga Michelle, which is chasing the rainclouds away rather effectively. It’s a spicy, heady, old-school tuberose Very French and yet very lush and tropical at the same time. Do you know it?

  2. Ooh, that was a good read. So you do know it — you REALLY know it. I had a feeling it was going to be alright, but it really is epic.

    Also got a bottle of Cialenga, which I think you would like. Lots of nice vintage-y green stuff happening in it.
