Found my Galimards and will sniff them tomorrow. Meanwhile, this might help. I searched and pulled up the Galimard house then arranged them in descending order according to rating. That should give you a start on the ones Parfumo likes the most.

Hi, Nerys. I have samples of: Brindille, Gelsomino, Ma Faute, Notre Temps, Shantoung, Soir de Grasse, Yavana and an FB of Jasmin. Also have Aigues Vives, a male scent.

Brindille is soft and flowery but not too sweet because of the musk, I think. Gelsomino is stronger, more narcotic, because of the Jasmine, Rose, Tuberose heart. Ma Faute is a greener Gelsomino. Notre Temps has a citrus top and floral heart mellowed by woods in the base and musk. It's softer than Gelsomino. Shantoung is a sweet floral with more vanilla than Notre Temps and no musk. Soir de Grasse is a greener floral still with a synthetic moss note. Yavana has a a citrus top and a strong lily-of-the-valley note and with moss and amber in the base it's a more "serious" floral. I like it less than the others but many would like it more. To me, all are perfectly wearable.

I see I picked them during my early Jasmine obsession and bought the Jasmin FB. I don't wear it because it has a note that smells like formaldahyde to me--not a good aldahyde when it comes to perfume, IMO.

Aigues Vives has strong lavender and lemon, somewhat balanced by citrus, herbs, etc. Not among my faves for men.

Hope this helps.
