A high degree of expression
If this fragrance were a "realm", it would be not just one, but many. And at the same time. It would be a dark forest as well as a rose field. He would have seen deep night and bright daylight.
It would be a reason to bright joy, as well as to deep melancholy.
And (that wouldn't be all by far) he could reach for the clouds and dig into the earth.
Expression" is so ambivalent and versatile that spirits can separate on it.
And his "expression" is not only that of a well trained actor, he LIVES what he is.
He doesn't get "roles", he embodies them.
When I put on "Expression," I can disappear all inside him. In its blossoms, resins, woods and mosses.
Like a "magic cloak" from a fantasy story in which the hero / the heroine literally verschmizt with him.
And hardly anything "worldly" can stop me from "being" what I "carry".... An incredible chypre with all facets of my own personality.
And it reminds me of a story I find incredibly touching. Maybe some people know the book / the movie "The 200 Years Man"...........?

honey, honey and more honey......
I found a vintage miniature of Expression and although it's not what I imagined it to be, I like it a lot. It's actually divine. 

Unlike other reviews I'm having an entirely different experience testing Expression. I'm not smelling the strong rose that is mentioned below. Maybe the content of my miniature changed throughout the years? I don't know why it is different, but to my nose Expression opens with straight up honey and bees wax. After the first blast it evolves in a very pretty, balmy and slightly sweet honey and flower perfume. I also get some carnation and oakmoss. Very cosy.... I bet there are also some resins like amber, myrrh or benzoin in there. Longevity is also very good, about 8 hours on me. I wouldn't mind having a big bottle, if the big bottle smells the same.

On a Russian site I found that notes include oak moss, rose, flowers and leather. (just leaves me more puzzled, because no mention of ambers or honey.... also I don't smell any leather). On Russian sites there are some more reviews and over there it is perceived as either chrypre, green and leathery or warm, balmy, woody and animalistic. A few mention the honey note and some don't. They almost all mention perceiving oakmoss and they all agree it's a lovely scent.

A Dry Rose Chypre Classic
A wonderful, complex rose chypre that is well worth seeking out if you love this type of fragrance. I wore this years ago and was lucky enough to find a bottle last year, as it had stayed in my memory. I'm a happy bunny!
