I had a bottle of that once upon a time. It is very nice, I especially like the rose note, but I believe I traded my bottle away a few years ago. I still feel like I haven't found my ideal eau de cologne. I've been meaning to go down to the Scentbar and try Nicolai's Cologne Sologne. I've heard good things. I'm also curious about Tauer's take on the theme (can't remember what it's called).

Forgot to mention a couple of ebay bargain buys this week. Got a brand new bottle of Coriolan, which is surprisingly cheap and plentiful out there, despite being discontinued so long ago. I guess nobody really liked this one that much. Also got a "vintage" bottle of Aramis. Not sure if there was ever any reformulation of this, and I'm not familiar enough with the scent to really know, but I got a half filled estate sale bottle for dirt cheap.

I've always been amazed at how cheaply you can still buy bottles of Coriolan. I've heard that L'Ame d'un Heros is practically the same thing as the old Coriolan. Has anyone here tried both?

Ah, that's what I'm catching. 10 hours later there's a delicate woody rose that barely lingers. Very nice. A friend gave it to me because on her it disappeared quickly - fortunately I'm a bit luckier with this one.

Just got a chance to sample vintage Tabarome thanks to the wonderful generosity of a fellow SFer. This is big and bold, a real man's-man scent with a huge ambergris note in the base. It's just like Baron described. As he said, there's no connection at all between this and the current Tabarome Millesime. I like this one a lot better.

If your wife made you sleep in another room for wearing that, I can't say I'd blame her!
If I were Emperor Joseph II in Amadeus, I'd say "too many vetivers."

My dear young man, don't take it too hard. Your work is ingenious. It's quality work. And there are simply too many vetivers, that's all. Just cut a few and it will be perfect.

lol8[1].gif +1. Quoth teh Sartre. "Remember, mortals, be discrete." One ought to say that when contemplating the layering of assorted vetivers.

D'orsay Etiquette Bleu tonight. Good one for hot weather.

If I were ever to get a tat, it might be "Guerlain" with the big red NO circle around it.

I didn't see anything wrong with a little vetiver to go with your vetiver.

Speaking of, today I applied some Tom Ford Grey Vetiver. At least, I think it's Grey Vetiver. It goes on very mnegh and >_< then it gets a bit o_O and now we're tolerable. Very dry vetiver.
