Amber Memories Light the Corners of my Mind
The moment I donned Bois 1920 REAL PATCHOULY, I thought immediately of Montale BLUE AMBER. I was expecting a chewy patchouli perfume--instead I'm wearing rich labdanum amber! Is my memory playing tricks on me? I'll have to compare these two gorgeous creations side-by-side in order to determine the answer to that question. Fortunately, this will be possible, as I have been collecting samples from Montale--the house whose mission is obviously to cater to perfumistas afflicted with hard-core OCD. Is it even humanly possibly to test all of the Montale perfumes? I ask most sincerely. In any case, BLUE AMBER awaits another sniff. Be back in a jiff...

Whoops: definitely *not* BLUE AMBER! There is no blue facet to REAL PATCHOULY whatsoever! So I wonder which labdanum amber I am remembering? Well, it's something that I need to acquire--either that or this splendid labdanum amber patchouli. Smooth, golden, and--could it be Histoires de Parfums AMBRE 114? I do not believe that it is Serge Lutens AMBRE SULTAN. In any case, Bois 1920 REAL PATCHOULY will do quite fine to fill my amber yearnings come wintertime. This composition manages to avoid what some regard as the "boring" quality of unadorned ambers such as L'Artisan Parfumeur by including a dose of patchouli hefty enough to notice but not overwhelming and not very sweet.

Beautiful!

I like the drydown that gets a lot of sweet tobaccos. But the harsh bitterness of the opening is quite annoying. I hope I can grow up.
