Pre-shower: Bois Bourbon--one of the Decennial series celebrating Luckyscent's ten years in business. This is my second favorite from the series, behind Lys du Desert (but it's a close second). It's a boozy, spicy scent with almondy facets (heliotrope, I think) and a rich woody base.

SOTD: Coromandel. I don't wear it a lot, but when I do I'm reminded just how great this one is.

Today: Tubereuse Criminelle

Some mornings I have an easy time getting the baby up and out of bed, others - not so much. I was starting to fear that it was scent-related: the last few times it was Yatagan and Antaeus that caused the fussy-baby business. Last night I had a hard time getting baby to sleep, and I didn't really think about it until after applying a healthy dose of Antaeus. Well, oops - guess we'll find out whether this is happenstance or she really doesn't like it.

Turned out she was so tired I didn't get any fight at all. So that's a win.

Damn you. Now I have to place an order for samples at Lucky Scent. Here's what I've got so far - feel free (anyone) to add in any you think I might like:

4pk Lucky Scent 10th anniversary
Montale Cuir d Arabie
Divine L'Infini Homme

I don't know if you've tried these, but if not I'd definitely recommend them:

1. Chypre Palatin--MDCI. Stunning, high-quality chypre. It's got a classic feel, but you wouldn't mistake it for vintage; it's still modern.
2. Whips and Roses--Kerosene. I wasn't a big fan at first, but I've really come to like it. Sharp leathery scent; roses are in the background.
3. Bullion--Byredo. Rich, woody scent that opens up quite bright. Modern masculine. Designed for the Middle Eastern market, but honestly I don't pick up a distinctively Middle Eastern vibe.

I think Jour d'Hermes is really great, but I don't think you'd be a big fan. (It's definitely on the feminine side of the continuum.)

And would you prefer something sweet--like vanilla and amber--or something a little sharper and more bracing? Finally, do you have a maximum you're willing to pay? These don't exhaust the choices, of course, but just to get us in the ballpark.

On the modern end - and not too sweet. I don't even know what the price range is, but 'tis the season for expensive gifts I guess.

A very interesting article from Basenotes on what perfume French Aristocrats would wear around the 1900's.

SOTD: Bond no. 9 New York Amber.

I put this on at 7:30am and it's almost 12 hours later and it still smells like I just sprayed it. The longevity of this fragrance is amazing and the projection is a monster. It is a perfect scent for a cold, winter day.

Anyone tried the recent Lubin releases?

Or anything by Mona di Orio?

I haven't tried the new Lubins, but I have recently tried two Mona di Orios.

One of them is Rose Etoile de Hollande. I think the likelihood that you would enjoy it is pretty nearly zero! Peachy aldehydic rose with some geranium, also a little bit spicy (clove), very powdery in the drydown.

Other is Mona di Orio Oud. It's a smoother oud than most and balanced by some floral notes. I do think there's a decent chance you'd enjoy this one.

I've tried the new Lubin. I liked Korrigan the most. Akkad was also nice.

I tried Lubin Galaad recently, It was nice and spicy but didn't have much projection. Same thoughts I had about Idole de Lubin. I am really looking forward to trying Mona di Orio Vanille.

I'm trying Bijou Romantique tonight - very confectionery. L'Inc, did you get a whole bottle of this for yourself?

I did indeed.
IMO, it's a very interesting combination of scents that you wouldn't expect to work together. On the one hand, there's a sweet chocolatey and coconut facet, but then there's also a very earthy grainy vetiver facet.

Do you like it?
