(Absinthe Drinker by Manet)
It's very nice. Classy, but not very memorable... (tee hee!)
Okay, so let me try again. And let's test it against another absynthe-type: L'Artisan's Fou d'Absinthe which has notes of absinthe, star anise, dry pine, cistus, angelica flower, blackcurrant buds, clove, ginger, nutmeg, patchouli, pepper, pine needles, fir balsam.
Memoir Woman seems more complex and rich than Fou d'Absinthe, yet I am more drawn to Fou than Memoir, although neither blow me away. Hmmm. I wonder why? And note that I do like absinthe (the drink) a lot.
Received my sample from Michael and here's his review, one from Cafleurebon and Now Smell This
Oh I found another review from Kjanicki!
