I must say this Old Tankard Ale is a lot of fun for the $$$.
I accept! Today Guerlain Cologne du 68.It's an odd one from the house and without its name I wouldn't necessarily be able to trace the lineage. That being said... if one likes L'instant PH, I think would be a hit as well. It's got that similarly odd balance of soft and sweet, but also woody/resinous with some citrus. However, each is really well balanced/blended, so it moves back and forth within these different families without any one part being discernible.It's one...
IMHO, this thread needs more discussion, challenges, interaction, etc. Too much just posting SOTD's without commentary. I'd love to see more reviews of members after they try challenges, or discussing in more detail why/what they like. The point of niche fragrance is that it's quite personal... but honestly, I don't really see what/how/why I should go out and search for these new gems. Hashtag... challenge!
Agreed. One of my favorites. Really wonderful.
We should start some "challenges" to try unexpected scents. For example, I challenge to try Shalimar, or Mitsouko. What others do you challenge to try?
Brickstone APA... my new favorite "go to" evening yummy beer.
IT's been ages since I wore Shalimar EdT, so today I pulled out my gold recharge bottle. The standard, easily available one. Even in this form it's incredible. I defy anybody to try this one without the "old lady" psychological association and think it's overly feminine. If you wear Tom Ford's "darker" stuff, I say just try it.
Jo Malone Black Cedarwood & Juniper today. Nice, spicy, and well blended. Not a masterpiece; like so many newer scents they are "good," but not the superlative experiences of the great noses. Worth a small bottle.
I'd put it closer to CdR than Bandit, in that it is a stinky leather chypre that is very, very seamless. It's by Paul Vacher, who also did Miss Dior... and I see the common trend between the two as a perfectly blended combo of animalic and floral notes.Bandit I find to have a clash of elements to create something surprising/shocking... which Diorling doesn't have.Now that we're talking about it, I think I'll wear CdR on my left and Diorling on my write for a...
I'm so out of the loop these days I have no idea what's the difference between Mancera and Montale. Did Pierre sell out? Change his name? Or is it an entirely different company? Has no bearing on this juice... which is a great deal. Just curious.SOTD is DIORLING today. Leather chypre... imagine Knize ten blended seamlessly with Chanel no. 5.
