My grandfather had a garage where he parked his Citroën. I remember it was woody, a haunting odour, he had some geraniums in there drying over the winter. It was near the airport. It’s hard to describe but I loved that odour.

On first whiff, the vanilla notes come charging at you like an out-of-control Mr. Soft Cone truck. Imagine that truck crashing into a Kool-Aid stand and you have this fragrance in a nutshell.

My thoughts exactly!
Canadian fragrance awards? I did not realize such awards existed since every time I read about fragrance in Canada, they're trying like hell to ban it.
LOL — have to agree.
I think they started in 2006, but it is not easy to find out anything much about them.
