Warmhearted
In my book, there are two types of enjoyable perfumes: the ones that please and the ones that excite. 31 Rue Cambon is a pleaser. It exudes both friendliness and elegance. It has a warm welcoming heart that is hard to not like. And it has quality ingredients that are engineered to perfection - resulting in a controlled performance and maximum wearability. Personally I would wear this on evenings out or on cozy casual occasions.

I don't detect much development in 31RC. The pepper note is prominent in the opening, but it fits surprisingly well in the smooth slightly powdery composition. The chypre base feels very familiar and highly refined. It gives off a lovely glow-in-the-dark warmth. Mildly radiant, never too much.

This whole lovable care-bear glow is also why I consider 31RC a perfume that does not excite. There is no drama here, and nothing that signals "stay away from me, or I'll bite your head off" - I love that in a perfume - But that is fine. Sometimes a warm heart is all you need.

A beauty beyond words...
The classic French perfumery has evolved over last 130 years since the creation of Jicky. If you take it upon yourself to collect the masterpieces, I dare you, to stop at 50, or even 100. The job is impossible. There are just so so many beautiful perfumes out there; each one crafted like no other.

While they can vary in smell, genres, etc. yet there is a common thread among them - they are chic, typical of French style. Try explaining it to someone not versed with French culture, even the most learnt will find it hard to paint a clear picture in the first try. Here, I present to you, 31 rue cambon, an epitome of chic. One sniff of 31 Rue Cambon does a better job of capturing the sense, than any amount of words would do.

You hear it is short lived too soft, and other things. I wouldn't hear a word of it. It is how it is supposed to be. It is extremely delicate, and that is what defines it. It is a marvel to see this masterpiece being created in 21st century. I have a feeling that this one is going to make it to the next century, provided nobody messes it up.

This one defies time - a beauty beyond words.

Business Scent No. 1
Hesperidic in the beginning, flowery in the heart, spicy, vetiver woody and earthy in the base. Perfumes with these fragrances are recommended for business appointments where women must be confident and convincing. It radiates self-confidence and strong sovereignty. So a chypre is exactly the right choice. Because this is how it is built and characterized.

31, Rue Cambon is on Luca Turin's Top Ten list of Chypre fragrances of fragrant perfumes in 1st place.

I only know 5 of his Chypre list, but of those Rue Cambon is undoubtedly the best. The most elegant, and also the most modern of them. The perfect scent for the job. Not necessarily for the normal everyday office life in jeans, but for all difficult or important appointments where you have to leave a positive and convincing impression. And personal strength conveys. It is present, but not intrusive, because it is made very high quality. And compared to Aromatics Elixir or Mitsouko it is modern, but not New Age. There is still genuine, high-quality French perfume art behind it.

Paris on the edge of the abyss, which I smell today at 80% of the mainstream scents of commercial trade,

But not at 31, Rue Cambon.

The EdP is the refinement of the EdT. Citric in the beginning with a very slightly spicy pepper note. I don't find the flowery heart too feminine, but it is dry and dusty through the iris, and more powdery than the EdT. Earthy through the patchouli and vetiver.

I have worn the scent many times before, last week I thought that for the first time after a long day I had noticed a light cinnamon note. Or am I spinning now?
That could have been the Labdanum. It was beautiful anyway.
On this day, I was brought back to the awareness that fragrances are on the one hand very adaptable, but at the same time very individual. Do what they want and are always good for surprises.

I think it's very nice that this chypre doesn't have any fruit sweeteners. That Oliver Polge replaced the oakmoss, especially the artificial one, with vetiver was certainly not a mistake, but the best thing he could do.
