A friendship in letters
This won't be a very sophisticated review, more like a little picture story. But I must absolutely break a lance here for this so underrated fragrance! This perfume is a very compelling orange blossom leather scent for me. The leather is slightly smoky, as befits a fragrance named after George Sand. There is also a slight dustiness and sweetness. I associate a study in central France with an open window overlooking a garden. You can see the dust dancing in the air, a whiff of sweet floral scent drifts through the window and mingles with the smell of old books and furniture. You have a coffee first, open the tobacco casket, then get to work. Afterwards you relax on the divan, peru balsam and myrrh yielding what continues to be a very slightly sweet, soft and woody finish. You relax and go over in your mind once again the letter you just wrote to Flaubert.

The overall impression reminds a little of "L'Eau Scandaleuse", also a neroli leather fragrance. The latter is even more refined, the ingredients are of higher quality, the fragrance is darker and denser. But "George" doesn't need to hide in terms of quality either and is considerably cheaper. I see no reason to own both. As an everyday scent, it is definitely more suitable because of the absence of animalic. The durability I find just right for a working day, the sillage after a strong start pleasantly restrained

For these times when you need a break
This one is a unique mix of tobacco, oil paint thinner, and smoked sausage. I find it strangely pleasant, although somewhat fleeing.
On the other hand, I think it would be too much to feel it in the same intensity as the opening, for a full day. Nonetheless, I often reach for it when I feel a need for distraction.

Pleasant coffee citrus tobacco mix fading too fast away
Starts out interesting and strong. Tobacco + bergamot great combination, brightened by heliotrope, tangy (Neroli). Also some coffee very pleasant in the mix (so 10 to 15 minutes long) until it spoils. Myrrh with balsamic notes do not go together with the citrus notes and tobacco heliotrope mixture. Unfortunately it has nothing to do with the great combination like on 03.Apr.1968 of Rundholz. Here tobacco is not smoky, rather sweet. Unpleasant cherry tobacco with cologne-water spiky Neroli. Fades as quickly. One after the other (bergamot, then coffee, neroli). Heliotrope, still some dry flowers in the background, binds unpleasantly to myrrh and balsamic notes. No "smoothness", unpleasant like bums stinking of cheap tobacco and the balsamic is almost making you puke. Fortunately everything bleaches into musk in 30 to 40 minutes.
Except for Orlando, the brand's "writer fragrances" have poor durability. And only about 5 to 10 minutes are really nice. Not much power for the non-price... Shame and shame

great big neroli
This is another one that I, a Big White Floral hater, can't rate. While I enjoy many fragrances that have a bit of tuberose, jasmine, orange blossom, or neroli (among other white flowers), too much of any of them sends me running for an antacid to calm my nausea and some salt scrub to get it off my skin.

This has a lot of beautiful notes listed, but all my nose could register was, I guess, the neroli. I had applied so little that there was no noticeable amount missing from my 1 ml vial, but that was too much, and I had to scrub after ten minutes. Once again, I'll send it along to someone with a greater white flower tolerance and will refrain from rating something to which I couldn't give a full wearing.
