@Isolation - at the risk of impugning my reading comprehension skills - are you female? That would explain some of the styling/fit issues that you are having and I think would alter some of the advice you are being given?
Dad of 3 here.
We had our first two 18 months apart. It was a very difficult time, essentially like having two babies considering our eldest still wasn't sleeping. It was not unusual for all 4 of us to be up at 3 am. That being said, they are 6.5 and 5 now and fantastic friends. By 3 they were already occupying each other which made our lives MUCH easier.
The 3rd was a game changed but he's a super agreeable kid so it's been better. Our eldest is a boy too, and...
SOTD - Jo Malone Sweet Cedar and Lime courtesy of @Master-Classter - who gave me a 45 minute crash course in fragrances. Guy knows his juice.
Cedar is too strong on first spray for me, but I love the dry down which remains woodsy with a hint of lime. Really starting to like this the more I wear it, alas it is discontinued.....
Thanks again for your responses guys.
Ok so here is the final tally on what's available based on your very helpful suggestions:
Old Scout 6
Old Scout 10
Old Scout Store Private Bottling
Four Roses Single Barrel, Barrel Strength

Right now I'm leaning towards the FR and the Old Scout Private Store Bottling.

I'm going to contact some of the local liquor stores to see what they have in stock. I can't spend a fortune but would like something unique and delicious as this opportunity pops up infrequently. Up here in Canada we are just starting to get decent bourbon trickling in, but still...
Just to weigh in here on @GMMcL's previous post which has lead to the recent discussion.
I agree with @spectre that the offender in GMMCL's fit is the pocket square. I can see what he was trying to do as there is a hint of olive/brown in the ps that echoes the tie but the other colours in the ps are too far afield to make it work. I think the outfit with a different PS (maybe a navy/white floral) would have been better.
I also think that a plain blue shirt would have...
