From what I remember I'd call it a pretty complex fragrance, there are notes I can't really put my finger on. Woods maybe?
I'll give it a sniff again this evening.


I have not worn anything but Tonka Imperiale and some Musc Ravageur the last couple of weeks.

SOTD: OUD by Francis Kurkdjian. Plush and soft as silk. One of my favorite Ouds with the AdP and Montale White. I confess I don't like 'typical Oud' scents, if there is even such thing. smile.gif

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?

Let me give it a couple of tries because I traditionally don't like this style.

What do you think about this? Is it leathery in any way?

It is not leathery in any way. It is the most inorganic, chemical scent I own.
I do like it, but it is too weird to be an everyday scent. I can't think of when it is "appropriate" so it just gets worn randomly when I feel like picking something unusual. But there is never more context than that.

Have you tried pure oud?

Just applied some Frédéric Malle - Une Rose.

Could I get a recommendation for perfume/eau de toilette? I used to just use whatever I found lying around the house (some cheap stuff that was lying around or some of my dad's stuff), but I'd like to move on from that. I know that this stuff is really personal, but I don't even know where to begin.

Based on your criteria, here are some recommendations. You can check out the reviews at Basenotes for some more information about them.

Voyage d'Hermes--Hermes
Bleu de Chanel--Chanel
Aventus--Creed (this is a bit more expensive.)
Tom of Finland--Etat Libre d'Orange (Beware of very homoerotic packaging!)
Declaration d'un Soir--Cartier
Cafe Rose--Tom Ford (also a bit more expensive.)
Dior Homme--Dior

It's Invasion Barbare for me today.

I especially love le mouchoir de monsieur's take on what a real French Aristo would smell like...

I found that discussion to be quite entertaining on several levels.

Speaking of Mouchoir de Monsieur, that's going to be one of my next purchases in the very near future.
