DRAKKAR NOIR from Guy Laroche

Top Notes:  Lemon, Lavender, Tangarine
Heart Notes:  Coriander, Juniper
Base Notes:  Patchouli, Oakmoss
Fragrance:  Oriental Spicy

Easily the top choice of many men and young guys.  A perfume that leaves a lasting spell on both men and women.  A classic from the 1980's and still continues to have its place.

A fragrance that defines a young man and one of those safe choices for gifting to men and can be both day & evening wear.  One of my personal choice too among men fragrances.

NATSUMI from Annayake

Top Notes:  Green Grass, Citrus, Ylang-Ylang, Water Melon
Heart Notes:  Orange Blossom, Violet, Lily of Valley, Rose
Base Notes:  Sandalwood, Black Currant, Plum, Musk, Peach, Cedar
Another one from Annayake introduced in 2004 but found its way to my shelf very late :)  Natsumi in Japanese means "Beauty of Summer" and yes, as the name suggests it is a Summer Fragrance.

Not strong and lasts for a decent time.  Ideal for day and everyday wear.  Though annayake is meant to be exclusive, guess this one is for not this part of the world where summers are high and soon the impact of perfume is lost! :(  I still have some left and am using it though!
