Here's what other people are saying about The Afternoon of a Faun...
The opening so intensely resembles vintage Chanel 19 (my all time fave) I felt like I won a jackpot (received this sample with another order). The dry down goes in a different direction. I smell powdery incense wisps, flower roots, a bit of over-ripened fruit. It's very strange, a mid-summer night's dream in a way. It won't be for everyone, which is most likely why I love it so much.

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.

JCparodi wrote an excellent review! A brother of my mouth is watering.

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!
