SOTD: I'm trying out the brand new ELDOs. Today it's Afternoon of a Faun. I'm liking this very much. It's in the ballpark of Tilda Swinton, owing to the quite prominent immortelle note. But Afternoon of a Faun also features a bergamot note that gives it some more lift, and that makes it have a less autumnal feel. My tendency is to overestimate how much I like things on first smelling, but I really am liking this a lot.
Hearing 'Faun' and 'immortelle' in the same sentence immediately brings to mind Biche Dans l'Absinthe, one of the strangest and most compelling scents I've come across and one that is truly impossible
to find. The whole Gobin Daude line was ahead of it's time. I still have a tiny bit left of Biche and I love it. As such it never gets worn because I hate to lose it as a reference point.
But this ELDO - wondering if it's a remake or copy or homage to Biche?
