Kent Wang has some nice looking umbrella, both stick and collapsible.
I'm wearing Eric Buterbaugh Velvet, which is a modern take on Caron Pour Un Homme. The basic lavender/vanilla structure is very similar, but this is one is richer and comes through in higher resolution. There's an apricot/stone fruit note in there too.
I don't know TF London, fwiw. I wore Ambra Aurea today. It's been in pretty heavy rotation this winter.
I thought Bat was pretty wearable - the cave theme gives the scent a "story," as it were, but it's not so literal that you can't enjoy the other elements of the scent. I may have been influenced by the perfumer, who had a kooky charm. I think she was some kind of scientist who'd come to perfumery from that angle. She was engaging and enthusiastic about her scents.
I've tried several of those, mostly at the AIX Scent fair last spring. Lampblack is well known here but definitely worth trying if you haven't. The Bogue scents are all interesting (I see that the gardenia scent isn't listed at that link -that was the one I remembered most fondly). I really like Incendo from La Curie. Zoologist Bat was good - smelled like a cave. I should ad that I was able to talk to most of the owner/perfumers and they were an interesting group of...

I think this old Parker fit, which kinda exploded my mind, is the exact archetype of this challenge. If I remember right, it's Chan bespoke, vintage Pendleton, Yohji and Chucks.
I'm wearing Caldey Island Bouquet. This was a gift from a couple who picked it up in Germany over the holidays. They know that I like perfumes, and I thought this was an interesting and thoughtful choice, considering they know very little about perfumes themselves. The only Caldey scent I was familiar with before was Lavender, of which I own a bottle. This one also has a some lavender, but several other floral notes. I get some carnation and maybe some iris, but I can't...
I picked up a decant of Knize Ten about a week ago after being without any for about a year. Just as good as I remembered, I've worn it a few times in the past week. I was in Barney's today and I sniffed a few Malles. I was reminded of how much I like Musc Ravageur. I've been out of that one for a few years, I need to get myself some.
