Multifaceted
This is a difficult fragrance to describe. There are so many layers to this creation. Olfactory system overload.
If I’m describe what comes to mind, here it is (from a drop)

Soft, rich/opulent, balmy/warm, new leather, luxurious floral creamy soap, spicy (obvious clove), dark yet fresh with a hint of citrus, and coniferous/pine like.
The scent lasts a long time on skin and projection remains excellent, without being obnoxiously strong.

“Overpriced & Worth It?!”
Opens sparkling, fruity, zesty, citrusy-sweet, bitter at times, aquatic without going full on water, with a swirling grey-airy-ozonic accord (ambroxan), eventually evolving into the dry down, the overall feel becomes dry, leathery, and warm but never loses it’s fresh components. While it is mainstream, with designer-ish qualities (and likely overpriced), it is also undeniably attractive, very versatile, and mass appealing. I like it for what it is, an easy reach.

*Wife Approved*
Upon Testing Baie 19 for the first time, I was immediately reminded of Diptyque Eau Mage, specifically in the discontinued EDT formulation. Baie 19 has some distinct differences however....with petrichor being an obvious difference and it lacks the rose oxide accord that is dominant in Eau Mage

Eau Mage EDT contains:
Top Notes: Green Mandarin, Rose oxide
Heart Notes: Ambrox, Caraway, Spicy notes
Base Notes: Cashmere wood, Musk, Cypress, Labdanum

Baie 19: contains:

Petrichor, Juniper berry, Patchouli, Green leaves, Ambrox, Cade juniper wood, Musk

I’ve also been wearing E.M. for years so the resemblance was apparent. 2 small sprays of Baie 19 has lasted 7 hours and is still going strong. The petrichor is quite realistic here. My reaction is that this is a clean, dewy-green, velvety-soft, musky-salty-sweet scent with a trace of darkness. Ambrox Addicts take notice! Both EM and B19 have a unique contrasting “light vs. dark” concept going on! Quite versatile, very attractive, and to be worn regularly. This scent has garnered an unusual amount of compliments. Most notably from my lovely wife, the ultimate critic and deciding factor with many of my fragrances... Finished a sample and decided it’s a must have. Bottle arrived yesterday and it’s as gorgeous as I anticipated. Le Labo still remains my #1 house and this became bottle #21 from Le Labo.

*Gin & Tonic, Pine Sap, Fruit and Incense*
Woody (think pine and crisp evergreens), with light traces of incense smoke swirling in the air, circling around a base of tangy fresh citrus. The juniper adds an exhilarating touch to the scent, similar in a way... that coincides with the taste of an effervescent gin & tonic. Projection is slightly below average (it's one of those fragrances you can comfortably spray at will without offending anyone) but the longevity is satisfactory. From the Kings of Avante Garde perfumery. Superb.

Piracy in the Victorian Era?
Exotic, spicy and hot yet soft and delicate with a prominent cinnamon accord accompanied by a dark and sweet floral component. Everything is expertly blended on a base of fresh marine air. I envision a scene at night in a Victorian castle where several vintage dark red smoldering candles are throwing their rich scent with nearby open windows allowing the cooling sea air inside the room. Hauntingly beautiful, majestic, with a stunning presentation. Longevity, concentration, and projection are off the charts.
