Sample of Le Labo Oud 27. Digging it. The only other Le Labo I have smelled is the Rose, and there is a certain similarity between the two. Makes me want to try more le labo stuff.

Did you like it from the very beginning? When I first smelled it, I thought it smelled like a combination of wet wool and a brewery. (I did not think this was a good thing.) I came to appreciate it as it dried down, though.

Interesting also that you thought it was similar to Rose 31 - I don't happen to get that but I'll reinvestigate. The Rose 31 has a lot of wood in it to me so I wonder if that's what you get. I personally don't like the Rose because I get a pretty strong "cold cream" smell from it.

Yeah, I don't perceive the similarity with Rose 31 either. Rose 31 is actually one of my least favorite Le Labo fragrances; Santal 33 is the worst, IMO.

I like it from the beginning, but it's the dry down that reminds me of rose 31.

Late night scent is Burberry Body, which is definitely a guilty pleasure.

Odeur 71 again after your talk. I get woods, sharp rose/saffron and a touch of oud. I see what you mean with cilantro, HORNS. Some cumin maybe too. Incense. And something that's very obvious but I can't pinpoint it (I really feel stupid when I smell things or taste wine or something and totally know where to put the notes but simply can't articulate them frown.gif).
Overall quite nice, but it smells a tad overly synthetic (maybe because it is, lol). And it's a little too sharp for my nose.

L'Artisan - Fou d'Absinthe

well, I forgot to apply anything this morning so upon my arrival at the office I applied Ferre Bergamotto Marino. It's nice and really cheap, better than the price would suggest.

Then I managed to swing by the Chanel boutique and finally tried Coromandel. Now that's really good. I might have to find a split somewhere.

I really like Coromandel - I've said it before but it smells to me like an apple tart tatin.

I went to the Chanel boutique today just to double check with them if they carry the perfume, and the associate kept telling me that yes they do, they're right here - she kept patting the tops of the EdTs while looking at me as if I were crazy. Anyhoo, I really want 31 Rue Cambon in the perfume because I think it would be beautiful.

The Barneys really has one of the best-curated selection of perfumes I've been to, and that does NOT count anything in New York since I haven't visited anything there. I ended up getting a bottle of Geranium Pour Monsieur because I was craving something "fresh" but didn't want citrus and certainly nothing aquatic. I was wavering on Odeur 71 but that's just too big a bottle of something that queer, even thought I think it's an amazing scent. So the mint/flower it is.

While there at Barneys, I tried on the new L'Artisan Seville a l'Aube, which was interesting at first but then became just another orange blossom. It needs revisiting because I realize now, after being "meh" with the Geranium Pour Monsieur and ending up liking and purchasing it, that my perception changes from experience to experience. Duh, right? Another recent example is the Hermes Vetiver Tonka, which I've been applying more recently because I'm starting to like it - the dryness of the vetiver is well balanced by the sweetness of the confection-like tonka.
