Interesting point there...
+1 to all that
Up on offer are decants of Tom Ford Neroli Portofino & Noir de Noir. I don't have to tell you how amazing Tom Ford's stuff is. These fragrances smell great, project well and last for 10+ hours. I use beautiful high quality atomizers and will carefully measure out the 30ml or 50ml, and use a custom black and gold Tom Ford label. Examples shown in the pictures below. 50ml of these fragrances retail for $200-250 and the only difference is it's in a clear bottle instead of...
+1 on those Belvenies
I mean I like Raisin Bran. Only becuase eating just plain bran with milk is so rough that adding sugar covered grenades I mean raisins somehow makes it tolerable. But that's where I draw the line. Otherwise, raisins GTFO.
Gawd, raisins are like little landmines. There you are enjoying a perfectly good apple strudel, cinnamon bun, rice pudding, etc and then bam you get a raisin. Bam, another one. So you stop and pick them out and flick them off onto the road with contempt. You keep munching and bam, again - now you get pissed. You try another bit but it's too nerve racking. You don't know what's going to be in it. You just don't know. So you stop. You consider if you really need to finish...
So in that case I'd say make a list of 5-10 to try out and sample them at bars or your local liquor store and then pick 2-3 to get bottles of. There are the usual easy drinkers and then the usual more interesting ones... like I said I'm still a bit new at this but try a good example of each region/style. So something salty and smokey like Springbank, Laphroaig Quarter Cask, Lagavulin 16, etc, then something sherried like Aberlour A'Bunahd, one of the Macallens, or...
Yeah when I worked at the shop, it was often someone who walked in and said oh yeah Tom Ford, he's baller, I want a Tom Ford fragrance. Then it was just a matter of spraying every single one, essentially throwing mud at the wall, er nose, until one hit. They weren't looking for a particular type of scent. They just wanted one that was good enough that they'd wear that was XYZ brand name. Malle's line, I agree has retained it's style, as in no real house coherence, just...
I blind bought a 30ml decant based on all the positive reviews and I'm still loving this fragrance. But, that being said I've worn it 4-5 times and think about it all the time, but don't reach for it all that often. I really enjoy wearing it when I do, but I'm not sure I'd make it an every day scent. Come fall/winter it'll probably get more use from me. I do also find it slightly raw and unbalanced. So overall, great memorable scent that stands out and wears really well,...
