Tonight: Yohji Homme - the initial fragrance and not the re-release. It's anise done perfectly. Unless you're an anise freak, like I am with vetiver and leather, I think you only need one and this is a perfect one to have. Hermes Brin de Reglisse would be another one to consider, though I'm not a big fan.
Today: Comme des Garcons Blue Santal - I really like this fragrance, but can definitely see why someone would not like it at all. First, it stays on me, with me still getting whiffs seven hours after applying it. It's woody alright, but also has that signature CdG synthetic feel.

Today: Ylang 49 - what a good perfume this is. Powerful as well. It's like Jour d'Hermes' sexy older sister.
All I could think about (I'm exaggerating on the consumption of thought here) is how the German goal tender looks like Jeffrey Dahmer.
I decided upon a preshower application of a sample of Parfum d'Empire Cuir Ottoman on my right wrist.

In the past I dismissed this fragrance as being too close to Knize Ten to give any consideration, but I'm really enjoying it today. The petrol portion, which both of the aforementioned...
It's finally here!!! I really have no inkling of how this will turn out.
Tonight: Cuir de Lancome - I'd classify it as a suede and blows the other suedes I've tried (Cuir Beluga, White Suede) out of the water because of its elegantly used addition of animalic elements.
I'm not a fan of Champaca Absolute either, though I know a woman who wears this and it projects beautifully from her.
