More Scent Testing

I’m still testing and tweaking a few scents.  I took a brief break to try a fragrance that’s new to me: Patricia de Nicolai’s Château Eau Fraîche.  The notes listed at beautyhabit are moss, hay, leather, and grass, but I get a tabac note too.  It opens with lots of green moss, grass, and hay notes, and very soon the tabac comes out on me.  Then the soft leather note emerges, and the drydown has just a bit of sweetness in the base.   It’s very pleasant and sophisticated.  I love subtle tabac notes, and the leather is quite soft.  The moss and hay notes make me think of being outside in the summer sunshine.  I need to save time to give this one a better test run.  It’s interesting.

So much to do.  I’ll check in again soon.
