  1. I'd just give thanks that he likes a well constructed scent :D. Antaeus is a classic for guys.



    You're right, it's a lovely scent and it smells good on him, but it's just so complicated! My uneducated sniffer simply can't tell the notes apart. I think I get the patchouli and the sage a lot, and possibly the cedar too but there's another note in it that I can't distinguish. It might well be the labdanum.


    Thanks for all the ideas, guys, it's much appreciated...from randomly searching for the notes in Antaeus I've come up with the following list:


    Lear (as suggested above!)

    Lex Talionis

    The Bow and Crown of Conquest


    The Scales of Deprivation



    I'll probably head off to Swaps now to try and collar a few of them... :P Keep the suggestions coming, though!

  2. The logical next step is to make everyone around me love BPAL just as much as I do. My boyfriend has shown interest and patiently sniffed my arm about a billion times, but he's also securely wedded to his Antaeus. Although he did like F5. But that's mine :P

    So, is there a BPAL that's similar to Antaeus? Apparently it is: "A warm woody fragrance with notes of Sage, Patchouli and Labdanum" and the specific makup is allegedly:

    Top notes: Clary Sage, Myrtle
    Middle Notes: Patchouli, Sandalwood
    Base Notes: Labdanum, Beeswax Absolute

    I have also seen it described as: "Fragrance notes: citrus, chypre, dry wood, cedar."

    All suggestions gratefully received!
