Chanel PM for me today. This is a scent that I didn't love at first, but I've grown to appreciate it more and more. I've noticed lately that a lot of my favorite scents were not love at first smell, and a lot of the ones that were love at first smell are ones that I'm not all that enthusiastic about anymore. Violet Blonde is my best example of a scent that I thought was okay at first, but that I grew to love.

Good call on Chanel PM. I don't use it that often, but every time I go back to it, I wonder why I don't. Sometimes I feel it's to subtle considering how loud most fragrances are today. Completely agree with you that it grows on you over time. I usually wear it for dinners or situations where a fragrance might otherwise seem out of place.
ADP colonia assoluta is one of my summer standbys. To me the drydown smells pretty soapy with a good bit of fern. I get the cardamon note at the beginning, but I will have to look out for the resins next time I wear it.

Last night, Chanel PM
Today, Shalimar

After the discussion of Terre d'Hermes, I decided to wear this today. But what does "spring" or "summer" mean in San Francisco?

Their is a fragrance by Bond No. 9 of which I am wearing New York Oud. It is deemed a rose/oud accord in which many people like it, but you can't prove subjective opinions to be true. Their just opinions not facts. In conclusion, I like New York Oud, in which I am wearing today, which is just an opinion not a fact. The First Amendment lets us say our opinions unlike the Nazi's.

(I've been reading my students' term papers lately. I thought I'd share my misery with all of you.)

Not sure of the name, but it's a Bond No.9 "I Love NY" with blue packaging. (could be the actual name for all I know)

Correction - just looked it up. I Love New York for Him, and composed as follows from the Bond site:
Quote:
Notes of ginger, juniper berry, grapefruit zest, lavender, geranium, patchouli, leather, sandalwood, labdanum, musk and amber.

Very much enjoy it. Being half the price of the standard Bond's works too.

^^ Seems like opinion is really polarized on I Love New York For Him. People either like it a lot or hate it. I haven't seen much middle ground. I like it quite a bit myself.

I think you didn't see my post -- how do you like Lyric Man by Amouage?

Just craved some Allure. Applied one spritz as a bedtime scent. smile.gif

You are correct, I didn't see your post. I didn't get a chance to get to know the fragrance as well as I would have liked to. I had a small sample of it, but it had leaked in transit. I recall that the rose was quite prominent, and it was on the feminine side for a scent that's marketed as a masculine. All of which is to say that I liked it quite a bit. I should probably get another sample. (I'm trying to go through April without buying any frangrance. So far, so good.)
