Believe it or not, TdH is the fragrance I've worn most of over the course of my life. I've gone through two 100 ml bottles. (I bought it as soon as it came out.) I enjoy the orange and grapefruit top and the minerally, vetiver heart quite a lot, but sometimes the cedary base gives me a headache. (I am talking about the edt.)

Infusion de Rose was given to me out of the blue by a certain benefactor. It's definitely a rose-centered scent, but it's not an old-fashioned feminine rosewater scent, and it's not one of those contemporary dark rose scents blended with saffron or oud. As non-dark roses go, I find this quite masculine, owing I think to the sharpness of the maté note. I'm not usually a fan of maté in fragrances, but I like it here a lot. As far as longevity and sillage go, I find it similar to Voyage d'Hermes: if I apply it liberally, it is good, but if not, not.

Have been lurking over the last while with nothing new to try. Purchased a 100mL of Live Jazz tonight as an anniversary gift (1/2 the price of the YSL L'homme my wife picked up as a placeholder).

Also, interestingly enough, tried this today while out at Anthropology. From the creators at Le Labo apparently. Anyone ever give it a try before? There were three at the store on discount; this one was called Belle Du Soir. It was marked down to 29.95 w/ 30% off further.



Notes listed are: Neroli, Water lily, Gardenia, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Patchouli. I get a lot of oak moss at the beginning though. Wonderfully intriguing and may have to go back and pick it up tomorrow. I immediately thought of L'Incandescent & Rach because of the semi-repulsive opening followed by a herbal/floral drydown that remains entrancing. A great example of a scent where I can't totally tell if I dislike it or not - and in that nebulous state of yes/no, you can be sure it's great... right?

I've never tried Belle du Soir, but the reviews certainly look good. Looks like a great price compared to what I've seen.

I've got a solid version of Orange Discrete, which is quite a straightforward woodsy orange.

Hey, Master-Classter, have you revisited Geranium Pour Monsieur after sampling it almost a year ago and we both were put aback by the minty note? I grew to love the overall scent profile.

Also, what have you thought of the Kolnisch Juchten?

Daytime: Chanel Pour Monsieur. Evening: Cartier Declaration (dinner & a movie with the missus, so I wanted something not too loud. I figured it was kind of food-y, with the cardamom & spice... I know other people get a sweaty note, but I don't get that at all...)

On a side note, has anyone ever purchased a perfume-making kit online? Any recommendations? I was checking out the Aromachemical Kit from Perfumer's Apprentice (http://bit.ly/X1wWZY), but wanted to make sure I was headed in the right direction, and getting all the ingredients I need. I'm not all that interested in actually making my own fragrance, but rather in using industry-standard aromachemicals to understand both individual notes/accords, and also the construction of base/heart/top notes. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

CDG:Incense continues to impress, this time it's Jaisalmer. Seriously, this might be my absolute favorite of the three I've tried. Will have to get a bottle of this and one of Ouarzazate since they're so cheap. bigstar[1].gif
