SOTD: Bulgari Black.

After being a shut-in for a few days because of a brutal cold, I finally had a chance to get out to the Flea Market where I found some interesting vintage fragrances:

1. Caron Bellodgia (probably from the 60s)

2. Givenchy Ysatis extrait /parfum

3. Yardley English Lavender (probably from the 50s): This opens a lot like Caron Pour un Homme with lots of fresh lavender and vanillic coumarin. Settles down pretty quickly into a quiet, lightly creamy lemony-lavender (though the lemon does seems a touch harsh--). This stuff has been around since 1873 or something, and it's pretty darn good for such an accessible and inexpensive fragrance...

4, Vintage minis of Drakkar Noir and Halston Z-14. Yup, I decided to give the Halston another try, because at first sniff this vintage juice smells more complex than the new stuff I bought recently. I assume there's been a reformulation, so I'll see how it works on my skin. And the Drakkar Noir because...well just because.

I also stopped off at Aedes and picked up samples of the new Lubins: Akkad, Galaad, and Korrigan. I'm looking forward to trying these out...

I also ordered samples of the new Lubins, which I'm very curious about. I also indulged the STC sale, so I'll be drowning in samples this week.

Post-shower today: Bois d'Ombrie, which I'm less impressed by than others seem to have been.

I'm sampling Ouarzazate for the evening hours. It's a high-pitched woody incense. It's pleasant, but I don't love it.

Sampling Labdanum 18 this morning - it's just a big ol' amber. No gusta.

Tauer Incense Rose. I guess it's official now, I love all three of Tauer's rose-dominant scents. (Rose Vermeille, Rose Chypree, and Incense Rose.)

Vintage Chanel No. 22 parfum, via Rach from Japan. This smells very familiar to me, I'm sure I smelled it on women I knew when I was a kid. It's still unwinding - right now I'm just getting a dense sweet powdery floral. This may be a little too feminine for me, still trying to figure it out.

Good stuff. One of my favorite citrus fragrances.

44% off LN-CC includes the CDG fragrances. To get code to work: log in/ create account with nothing in your basket. Add items to basket and type/paste code (case sensitive)


Edit: ln-cc seems to be correcting their code and cdg fragrances may or may not be included now, not sure what is going on over there
