Wore Ombre de Hyacinth yesterday. It's not bad but just not my type. The drydown was quite interesting though.

Today, New Yor Amber. Like it a lot.

I think I'm anosmic to Erolfa. I sprayed a ton of it on, but could barely smell it. Then an hour later some woman at the coffee shop said, "Your cologne is so good I almost swooned." I couldn't smell anything.

Sounds like something that would be posted in the basenotes thread about 'panty dropper' frags (AKA the compendium of 'Those Who Will Never See a Vag in the Wild').

The first part of that happened to me when I tried Untitled at Saks. The SA sprayed it on the card and I literally could not smell a thing. She then sprayed a whole bunch on, and I still couldn't smell it. She insisted that she could smell it from two feet away. (No one told me that my cologne made them swoon, though.)

Also, the threads about panty droppers are really BN at its very worst. I've said it a thousand times now, but I prefer discussing fragrances here at SF.

Yeah, that about sums up my thoughts any time I hear "panty-dropper" in any context.

I find the top of Ombre de Hyacinth very unpleasant, but after that it's actually pretty nice. Not FBW, but nice. Also, +1 on New York Amber.

Pre-shower: Amouage Gold Man.

I love it too. Which one do you prefer out of Vintage Derby and Patou Pour Homme?

Also, I see you like Richard James by Richard James, what are thoughts on this one?

Sotd: Halston Z-14.

Ok, I tried. I really did. Luca Turin's review made this sound really interesting: "a classical chypre accord...overlaid with a very tight woody-lemony structure." Huhn? I dont get it. I obviously have a lot to learn because all I get is a cloying cinnamon bomb with a kind of "sweaty underwear" vibe (a la "Saturday Night Fever"...) This just seems crude and a little cheap to me (maybe the budget was axed and the formula changed?)

Overall, I don't smell any real complexity or progression over time, just a linear fragrance that's as subtle as a the call of a rutting elk in mating season. Thanks, but I'll pass.

I don't know that I have a preference between Patou and Derby. I don't really have a preference between vintage and reformulated Derby either. I might prefer vintage if forced to choose, but the current version is very close to the old stuff.

Richard James is nice - there are a lot of notes in that one. Sometimes I think it's a little overdone, it's fruity, floral, leathery. It could easily pass for a feminine. the opening is a bit hectic but once it calms down it's very pleasant. I've gone through phases of wearing it a lot, especially while traveling in cold weather places.
