I so wanted to love this; alas, it makes me smell like an ashtray. Bone dry with a smokey scent on me. I don't get any leather-y smells, just ashes. Really, on me this is total scrubber;...

I'm so fussy when it comes to perfumes as I frequently get headaches- so certain scents really bother me. But Sycomore has this woody freshness that is seriously lovely. Perfect for summer with...

Light smoky wood. A great one for summer, but seems a bit simple for Chanel. It doesn't change, it isn't layered and it never reveals or becomes. It goes on light smoky wood and stays that way the...

This comes on strong but dries down to a soft, sweet, smokey vetiver. I get a slight fresh note from it, which could be the cypress or juniper, and the pepper note is obvious at first but fades to...

This was what I was hoping Ormonde Jayne Woman would be. Sycomore is as fresh and foreboding as an unexplored evergreen forest. Really, really like this one.

Sycomore is a soft, woody vetiver which I really do like. It is green and uplifting, a very thoughtful scent. However, I have known Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental and find this to be a far more...

Oh how I love this fragrance, but then I love vetiver. If you love vetiver too then you should check this fragrance out. The initial top notes are very unique a smokey vetiver, but later as it...

Sycomore is another example of Chanel's commitment to luxury and elegance. The opening of Sycomore is one of the most interesting a vetiver fragrance can offer. It smells a bit of chocolate,...
