Croyance by Charles V, Paris (Charles V 1953) is a very green, crisp, airy floral chypre.  There are thick, rich aldehydes (a bit like Chanel No. 19) that add a true elegant depth, especially in the beginning stages.

During the drydown Croyance becomes an exquisite fragrance with strong notes of styrax, coumarin, sandalwood and creamy warm amber.  It’s a bit more floral in the drydown than it even is at first, which is unusual.  This is not a linear fragrance or one lacking in complexity at all.

This last week I didn’t do so well with my reading.  Sorry.  😦  I’m not entirely sure where all the hours went, but they are gone…  and I didn’t get much further in the book…  I’ll break with my schedule and post more on the topic on Friday.


This has been another extraordinarily mixed week.  But for now, at least, I feel that I’m learning things (as always)…  And, to use a cliché, the more things change the more they stay the same.

Sigh.  🙂  I hope you all have a lovely day…
