The Afternoon of a Faun

The Scoop
The faun awakes, and contemplates his morning's encounters with some nymphs. His pursuit of the alluring creatures takes on libidinous proportions as he seeks to satisfy his desire. It's a beautiful memory - but did it really happen? When Nijinsky danced the story, he created a scandal. The carnal subtext of Mallarme's poem became an explicit expression of a sexual appetite. The ballet went beyond the sensual to a demonstration of a powerful virility. Suggestive fantasy and seductive reality. Now go ahead and make your own scandal.

Wearing it today for the first time. Love it. Long lasting, especially when sprayed on my t-shirt. Yes, the celery note is dominant--is that the bergamot maybe? It reminds me of the classic Jacomo from back when. I don't see the grandmotherly references at all. It's very masculine to me.

The opening's too sweet for me. The cinnamon is all over and with the other notes all the time. Not for me. Sorry.

I agree with the "grandma's dresser drawer" comment. It also brings back youthful memories, and has interesting complexity, but a little in the "older woman" category for my taste. Being in my mid-30's it doesn't speak to me.

I was carried to another time and place with this scent, perhaps in my childhood, a memory of the forrest floor, brimming with vegetal smell of fallen foliage, or perhaps, my grandmother's dresser on which sit endless bottles of the classics as seen through the nose of a 7 year old, she was also a perfume fanatic. This is an AMAZING Chypre, done in a classic style, it does have a funky celeryl-dill note which plays into the aura of its woody, resinous, mossy character. I didn't know Mitsouko had a brother. Masterpiece!
