It's starting to settle now and becoming more enjoyable, but I really didn't like the way it opened on me, almost a baby powder smell. I was expecting something great, but the initial blast really gave me a strong baby powder smell as well, I washed it off immediately without waiting for the...
Parfum d'Empire Fougere Bengale for me today. The initial blast was a rather harsh (curry, and to a lesser degree at least to my nose, puke....). But once it is gone, the drydown is very pleasant. I usually rotate my scents, but I have been wearing this for a few consecutive days. Didn't buy a bottle, got it in a 2 X 10ml decant from a fellow in Basenote. Should give it a try.

Just had a massive snow storm and it is freezing today. Something warm, creamy and mysteriously sexy......
Finally have gotten over a cold. Stayed away from wearing scents for a whole week. Given that the weather is in the 0 -10 C range, warm/spicy/sweet scents seem to work better on me. Today I am wearing MPG Santal Noble. It is quite nice. New bottle but the same old scent.
Hey Thomas, I am wearing the same thing (Cuiron) today. I really like this scent. To me, it is an underrated scent. Not a lot of sillage, but it stays and stays close to the skin. Many have said this is a leather scent, but I rarely detect it at all. To me, it is the berry (but not the citrusy kind for the lack of a better word) that intrigues me. Too bad it has been discontinued.....

I have tried both in Sephora and I couldn't detect a scent after an hour! I guess it really depends on the skin.

But there are a few experts on Basenote who summed this up rather nicely and I have quoted their reviews below. Apologise for taking up too much space. I experienced a strong angelica opening and the drydown of oakmoss with a hint of vetiver. A woody scent IMHO. I like to wear this in the...

Today, it is FM French Lover. Despite what others have said about this scent, I quite like it. Can't argue about the name though.....
Sampling CDG - Sequoia. I am told CDG is discontinuing this, have to make up my mind whether to buy a bottle.
