Sometimes I recognize the name of a note, but have no clue what that is.
For example, Cassis. What is that? I'm not really sure. But, I do know that I like it, as it is the prominent note on me in both Bleeker Street and Jo Malone's Wild Fig & Cassis. It is an interesting note: at once light but also with a lot of depth. I think it is fairly feminine, especially in combination with a floral!
Bleeker Street is just that: Cassis with a white floral. In the bottle I smell pretty much only cassis, none of the other notes come through. But, once on me the Cassis does fade a bit (don't get me wrong, it is still the most prominent note), but the Jasmine combines with it in an amazing way! The two really seem to balance each other well.
Top Notes: Cassis, Thyme
Middle Notes: Jasmine, Cedarwood, Cinnamon
Basenotes: Oakmoss, Suede, Patchouli, Amber and Vanilla
Bleeker Street is a fragrance made for a very trendy area in New York, filled with "hot" spots such as Marc Jacobs and Magnolia Bakery. I think this fragrance suits that area well!
