The pleasures of things natural and simple
In a brief introductory twist, St. Barthélemy treats you with a bit of mouth-watering, fruity and slightly sour dessert, but you can sense right away that the real thing is still to come. Then, jasmine shuffles to the front, sweet at first, then more of a muted kind, like the jasmine you can smell from an oldish bag of scented tea leaves. It smells natural and unpretentious – I like it a lot. Gradually, the trio of patchouli, sandalwood and white musk take over. The combination is impeccably blended and performs very well. The patch is doing the lead while sandalwood and musk provide supporting vocals and are hard to discern at first – but sandalwood becomes more prominent with time, especially on the second day. Yes, longevity is that good.

If you like patchouli, appreciate the mind-balancing qualities of the traditional Indian incense, or simply are into natural scents, this fragrance will likely appeal to you. I find the treatment of patchouli quite interesting here: the right amount of sweets, jasmine and clean musk take away the dirty vibes from the patch. But it's there, and a good dose of it, too – be careful when spraying to avoid staining light-colored fabric.

Apart from the first few moments, the sillage of St. Barth is well controlled: this is clearly a perfume designed for the pleasure of the wearer. Overall, I think it leans more towards the masculine side. Paradoxically, the fragrance is calming and at the same time has an edge in it that makes you want to put on some well-worn sandals, a simple linen shirt, and take a walk around town getting things done.
