I've had a bottle of Bel Ami for at least 5 year now and have hardly made a dent in it. Too sharp, too spicy.

Today I pulled it off the shelf, and for the first time in forever, it's agreeable.

Your choice is probably better than what I recommended! Congratulations on the new job, btw.

About five years ago, Bel Ami was probably the fragrance I wore more than any other. I haven't worn it as much in the last few years, though. When I read your post I thought, is it really that sharp and spicy? I went and applied a little and discovered that yes, it really is!

MPG George Sand for me today.

I got rid of my bottle years ago for that same reason. It overpowered me.

Next up in my sample box, Guerlain Eau de Coq. First of all, I love a Guerlain eau de cologne because it has that beautiful Guerlinade backbone. Second of all, I dumped on a vials worth and it's just about gone already, an hour later. Third, I realize that I don't really have a bottle of an eau de cologne, apart from Eau Savage, which doesn't quite count I don't think. I'd like to remedy that. Any suggestions? I was thinking of trying that Tauer one. Also, I know Luca Turin raves about Eau de Guerlain. There's also 4711, which I love but which also doesn't last.

Chanel's Eau de Cologne is supposedly nice but it comes in a huge bucket. That said, I'm not sure any classical cologne will last very long. The best I've seen in terms of longevity that comes close is Signoricci.

Now, what would a "sample sale" be? Samples for, like, $5 or something?

Creed - Aventus

Tom Ford Black Orchid.

 

I like the scent - seems sophisticated and sexy - but it's a little stifling, if you know what I mean.  It's not overpowering, like spray-on deodorant, but it's as though there's an ingredient that clogs the nose and prevents you from appreciating the scent to the fullest extent.

The sort of Cologne par excellence is PdN Cologne Sologne. Yummy stuff.

Because I wore it just this week, D'orsay Tilleul is another lovely citrus cologne with decent sillage. Costs a fortune but Malle Cologne Bigarade is wonderful (as is Bigarade concentree, but it almost is too pungent to be called a classic "cologne.")

But, the PdN is the standout and though its been years since I had a bottle, I believe it's quite reasonably priced (and available on Luckyscent).

Anyway, for me today it was cold and rainy and so I spritzed Caron Fleurs de Rocaille extrait; a very dry, warm floral aldehyde with a lovely amber base. It starts off powder Chanel no. 5-esque, but then goes into a wonderful soft amber and rose that is very warm/sexy and not at all grandma. It's heads and tails above the Chanel, and yet is almost unknown except in the caron-circles. Shows how much good marketing can push a scent.

That's an interesting suggestion. Cologne Sologne wasn't even on my radar, and I've been into the Luckyscent shop here in LA a bunch of times. I'll go give it a try.

Dior Leather Oud today. This is really good stuff; I don't know why I don't reach for it more often.

Last night was Houbigant Fougere Royale - I got a sample of EdP from Neiman Marcus

Today is again Voyage d'Hermes
