Yeah I've always liked the Davis. Slim enough but not skinny. Ain't nothing wrong with 'em, except half the colors they pick.
I toyed with the idea of making Scotch an investment at one point. Sort of like a buy one case each month instead of saving $10-15K a year. Get a case of 12-24 of your $100-200 bottles and somewhere around 4-5 (or 10?) years later start flipping them for 2-5x the money. I was thinking to go with all the limited edition / special releases, so for example you wait until the reviews come in and then of the 5 various Arbeg and Laphroaig variations, you pick the top few and...
I find the oregano note in the opening of Interlude really hard to get past but after that it's totally worth it :-)
SUN had a pretty nice run today. I sold some of my stock a little early (when it was up 8%, it finished around 12% up iirc)
I find Santal 33 more like a warm spicey scent, like slowly burning wood and a spice cabinet. A little synthetic and high pitched and huge projection and longevity. I find Tam Dao sits much closer to the body and is cool and smooth and creamy. So about as different as two sandalwood scents can get really.
I found a few interesting old items at Chatuchak market earlier this year too. Bought some Valentino and Golden Goose sneakers for like $15 and sold them online for $150.
Personally I like Philosykos (a woody creamy fig scent) and think it's a pretty decent blind buy. Tam Dao as mentioned is a cool creamy wood scent, which I find has a lot more of a cedar vibe than sandalwood. Also, easy to wear and enjoy. I wouldn't say it's powdery, but it is sort of creamy, so depending on what you mean by 'powder'. I've always liked L'Ombre Dans L'eau which is a very vegetal mulchy mossy scent with rose and black currant, but you said no rose. This one...
For MfK.... they're all pretty well done. Personally I always liked APOM (mens) above the rest and I really liked his Oud line, probably the 'oud' and also 'silk mood' but those ones are a bit less approachable for a newbie to the line
well now I know where the 'obscure' part comes from
SOTD was Masque Montecristo. Hmmm, I rather enjoyed this. The opening had this clove cigarette vibe that reminded me of Serge Lutens Noir a lot, then it moved into a sort of oily fruity patchouli tobacco type of note that I recognize exactly from Byredo's Baudelaire. I quite like this, but given that I have Baudelaire already, I'm on the fence about if I need this one too, or as a replacement. Definitely a line worth exploring / getting samples of!
