Metallic sapling
This stuff has been my holy grail fragrance for over a year now since my Seattle trip last year, and I’m happy to say that now that I have a full bottle, it doesn’t disappoint. Gaiac 10 is a beautifully sharp green fragrance. It smells like the blade of an axe after cutting down a bunch of fresh, green, baby trees. It smells like you took a mercury bath and then had buckets of mowed grass dumped on you. It smells like you grabbed a scythe and went to town on a bush. It smells like you swam under a train bridge and a train car full of cleanly sliced rainforest vines tipped over onto you. It’s metallic, it’s green, its watery, its musky, it’s ever so slightly smokey, it’s got a hint of pepper, it’s clean, and it’s amazing. I know just last week I said that Kira Kira was the cleanest fragrance I owned but that was before this arrived so I’ll have to amend that, because the first time I wore this out to a friends house I got asked if I just took a shower. I love this stuff, but try before you buy.

Subtle yet Persistent...
Incredibly attractive, clean, light airy woodsy, mellow, lightly peppered, so smooth and a little creamy. There is a laundry like effect. This fragrance is incredibly long lasting and subtle but tenacious. Gaiac 10 pairs perfectly with Vanille 44. I almost always receive compliments when wearing this fragrance and it is one of my wife's favorite pick from my collection. It's in an entirely different league than Molecule 01. I have a hard time understanding how one struggles to smell it. I find it quite potent. 10/10

Snooze-Ville
Gaiac 10 opens woodsy, with a bit of smoke wafting in the distance. As it dries, it passes through a detergent phase before it sweetens, becomes powdery & more musky. Wears close to the skin with mediocre longevity.

Although classified as a masculine, Gaiac 10 strikes me as unisex and it definitely can be worn by a gal. In fact, it may be more suited to women with its powdery & sweet character.

Overall, my experience is exactly what Sybarite says on another forum: "Wishy-washy woods, over wishy-washy incense and detergent musks." He nailed it. It's pleasant enough and not without interest, albeit a bit boring and common. At this price point ... snooze-ville.

Smells clean, but can't help but think it smells like nappies with a hint of smoke

Subtly woody-resinous, lightly peppery combination that floats in a creamy, slightly synthetic musky cloud.
