Metallic sapling
This stuff has been my holy grail fragrance for over a year now since my Seattle trip last year, and I’m happy to say that now that I have a full bottle, it doesn’t disappoint. Gaiac 10 is a beautifully sharp green fragrance. It smells like the blade of an axe after cutting down a bunch of fresh, green, baby trees. It smells like you took a mercury bath and then had buckets of mowed grass dumped on you. It smells like you grabbed a scythe and went to town on a bush. It smells like you swam under a train bridge and a train car full of cleanly sliced rainforest vines tipped over onto you. It’s metallic, it’s green, its watery, its musky, it’s ever so slightly smokey, it’s got a hint of pepper, it’s clean, and it’s amazing. I know just last week I said that Kira Kira was the cleanest fragrance I owned but that was before this arrived so I’ll have to amend that, because the first time I wore this out to a friends house I got asked if I just took a shower. I love this stuff, but try before you buy.

Subtle yet Persistent...
Incredibly attractive, clean, light airy woodsy, mellow, lightly peppered, so smooth and a little creamy. There is a laundry like effect. This fragrance is incredibly long lasting and subtle but tenacious. Gaiac 10 pairs perfectly with Vanille 44. I almost always receive compliments when wearing this fragrance and it is one of my wife's favorite pick from my collection. It's in an entirely different league than Molecule 01. I have a hard time understanding how one struggles to smell it. I find it quite potent. 10/10

Snooze-Ville
Gaiac 10 opens woodsy, with a bit of smoke wafting in the distance. As it dries, it passes through a detergent phase before it sweetens, becomes powdery & more musky. Wears close to the skin with mediocre longevity.

Although classified as a masculine, Gaiac 10 strikes me as unisex and it definitely can be worn by a gal. In fact, it may be more suited to women with its powdery & sweet character.

Overall, my experience is exactly what Sybarite says on another forum: "Wishy-washy woods, over wishy-washy incense and detergent musks." He nailed it. It's pleasant enough and not without interest, albeit a bit boring and common. At this price point ... snooze-ville.

Insultingly simple, but really, really good. I’ve tried, I’ve really tried not to like this. Wet and clean and smoky and soft and edgy? Yep.

One note fragrance...but the note is musk, not guaiac wood. Much too simplistic and synthetic for this price point

Smells clean, but can't help but think it smells like nappies with a hint of smoke

Subtly woody-resinous, lightly peppery combination that floats in a creamy, slightly synthetic musky cloud.
