Lavender and Liquorice
Wonderful authentic, dry, rich burst of Lavender in the opening, full of unmistakable quality... followed by a juicy liquorice note. Very well made.

Brin de Réglisse is Jean-Claude Ellena's take on Lavender, and for this he chose Liquorice - another note which has some olfactive similarities to the herb (he also managed a similar choice of combination with Vétiver Tonka). It's dry, almost caramel like quality pairs with the deep lavender to give a very rich, authentic feel... like standing in a lavender field in summer eating liquorice. The hay is also a wonderful choice here, which really evokes the natural and dry, herbal feel of this fragrance.

I also suspect there may be other notes at play here such as immortelle, with a dry, burnt-sugar and herbal feel, or maybe a hint of vanilla and orange blossom. Either way, Brin de Réglisse has one of the best lavender and liquorice notes in any perfume I've tried. It's transparent, as is Ellena's style. But, much like Vétiver Tonka, although I do like the combination... there are better interpretations of lavender and liquorice in other perfumes out there. Dior's Eau Noire comes to mind, which smells much more authentic than this (it's also a lavender liquorice combo). Overall I do really like this one, I just wished it gave me a little more.

Hermessence Brin de Réglisse
This fragrance opens with a salty-sweet liquorice and a herbal lavender note. The resulting accord is dry, sweetish and sheer. Carefully selected and blended, the two notes neither struggle with each other nor are too harsh. Once the liquorice has burned off a very realistic hay note emerges to join the lavender note. I now smell a summer meadow on which cut grass and flowers are left to dry in the sun. Sadly, this fragrance (on my skin) is so sheer to be almost undetectable and it stays close to the skin. In my opinion Gris Clair is the better lavender fragrance.
