Fresh fougère - Young Ralph is the best 


The top notes are a fresh lime and bergamot but with a green-floral bent with lavender, geranium and a very good patchouli. 


In the drydown herbal undertones com and go, including some clary sage.   A cedar note is added, with hints of sandalwood being detectable at times too


After about three hours a new chapter is opened, characterised by a delicious amber with honey, benzoin and a delicious gorgous, soft oak moss without any sharpness  A touch of tonka adds additional depth.


The blending is superb, as are the ingredients. A confident, green drydown with good silage and projection, and an excellent longevity of seven hours. A wonderful classic autumn chypre of great quality.   4.25/5
