My first girlfriend bought that for me. Long story, but it took me a long time to come around to it.

...

Today: Chanel Pour Monsieur.

Have you tried this many times?

Dzing is great, yeah. Wearing Tea for Two today. Awesome too. It's been discontinued, right? Gotta snatch a bottle/decant somewhere.

SOTD: Chanel Allure Edition Blanche.

^^ I like that one a lot.

Pre-shower: M/Mink. My mother (whom I am visiting) liked this.
SOTD: Parure

Parure ^^^, you're making me sorry I didn't save some for myself.

ELDO Afternoon of a Faun. The third and last of the immortelle trio of samples I received from Inc. I really like this one a lot. It's woody without being sharp, spicy, warm, a little sweet, there's a nice touch or rose and an immortelle note in the heart.

You know, if I were asked to name one perfume that is beautiful in the most straightforward sense of the term, I think I'd name Parure.

I wonder if different people just respond to immortelle differently. Whenever immortelle plays more than a slight role in the composition of a fragrance, the immortelle completely dominates for me. I get hints of the other notes, of course, but immortelle is absolutely front and center. It doesn't seem like Baron experiences them that way at all, though.

I just gave my mom a bottle of Parure. She thought it was one of the most wonderful things she'd ever smelled.

I wonder when you are obtaining a discontinued fragrance you can vet that you are getting the correct vintage, if there were multiple formulation even. Is there a 'grimoire' of all bottles ever made for a classic scent ? Of course for guerlain there might as well be, but for smaller houses...

Coromandel today, Ourzazate yesterday, Ambre sultan the day before. Still having a ton of fun with all of them, and I am desperately in love with all three. I could happily write a multi-page story about each.

Additionally, after posting initially about how I wasn't sure about the opening of Oud Cuir d'Arabie but loved the next few hours, I've now decided that I need it in my life. I will probably have to buy a bottle. It's fucking incredible.

Everything I like just smells like sex to me.

Now several hours into Faun, the immortelle is much more prominent. I think in general that it's a polarizing note. It's caramel-sweet but also has that savory curry quality, and it's also a bit smokey. I love it, but I'm not surprised that some feel the opposite.

No surprise, since you like Eau Noire so much. I enjoy the smell of immortelle but I didn't enjoy Eau Noire so much. It's either that I don't like to smell it over an extended period of time (like I love, really love, the smell of L'Occitane's L'Occitan shampoo but scrubbed off the EdT) or that the notes that interplay in Eau Noire don't do it for me. Only way I can find out is that I try more immortelle-centric fragrances, I guess. Maybe Faun. (btw, I just checked fragrantica and it didn't show immortelle in the official/community notes)

That's very strange about fragrantica not listing immortelle for Eau Noire!
