I assume the relationship with Turin and Burr is fraught. It would be difficult for Chandler, a scent journalist, to make much use of Turin who both knows more about scent and is a better writer than Burr. Since he writes for the NYTimes, it is likely that Burr has a more commanding knowledge of the NYC subway system than Turin so when they put together a series on scents of the underground, Burr will really come into his own. Until then, Burr is going to come out looking the worse any time the two are together.

That's good, dopey - It's almost as if you channeled Turin's snark and prose when writing that.

SOTD: L'Ambre des Merveilles for church. Still not sure what to wear for Christmas tomorrow.

Happy holidays everyone!

today Jo Malone Sweet Lime and Cedar... I think it's nice but so so longevity... anyone have thoughts on this one? I'm considering buying a bottle, and it's discontinued so only going to get harder to find

I haven't found one of her scents to have any staying power at all. Personally, I'd spend my money elsewhere.

Switched into HdP 1876 for the evening. Haven't worn this in a very long time. Dirty, spicy rose.

La Myrrhe today (unseasonally cold, rainy), keeping with the day's theme and all. L'eau Froide yesterday (for the frankincense). Unforch I don't have anything which smells of gold :/

24 Gold by scentstory. Amazing juice! This stuff should be sold in a fancy bottle with a $100+ price tag.

Tobacco Vanille for the evening christmas party

SOTD: Bond's Nuits de Noho as it pours rain in Tallahassee! It's good to be home :)

Guerlain's Champs Elysee Pure Parfum. Because if Jesus died for my sins, it should be for something big.

Kulata, haven't seen you around these parts in a while! did you see that review from Robes08 on it?

Today I'm going to start working through my huge bag of samples to decide what's worth coming back to and what's getting tossed in the swap box. I think there's enough for TWO solid boxes actually, stay tuned for early 2013 plans... you guys up for another one? This one will be the best yet, just like the Men's Warehouse, I guarantee it.

Today: vintage Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui - another fragrance that my elders always received for Christmas for a few years in the 1980's. It's been well over 8 months since I've worn this and I still love it.

It's been a while. I watched a couple of videos and read about it on basenotes. Decided to blind buy since it is only $40 on Amazon and wow I am impressed.

When is the next fragrance swap? I have some samples to share.
