Check this out. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inkstick

The inks I smelled in Japan are hard to define - minerally, smoky, metallic/bloody.

What's the appropriate fragrance for the day you turn 40? If my actions have any value as precedent, the answer is Noir de Noir.

Pre-shower was Eau Noire.

Happy Birthday?

Wear the first fragrance that you fell in love with. Or the one you first remember getting - like Ralph Lauren Chaps!!!! Or that Avon cologne in the shape of a football or race car!!!!!

I really appreciate the art in M/Mink, but I find the smell to be very off-putting when on my skin. That means that there's a sense of uneasiness, or even queasiness/nausea when I have worn it.

Yup, it is my 40th birthday today. Thanks!

@HORNS: I think my opinion is close to yours about M/Mink. I wouldn't quite go as far as "off-putting," but it's in the ballpark of that feeling for me.

You can get it @ luckyscent.com.  It's a great office day to day scent imo, has top notch staying power, and a great dry down.

 

For a nice bodywash check out Molton Brown's Black Pepper wash.

Thanks, NiceGuyTom. I used to have PdN New York, and I definitely have a good opinion of it. I think it's an excellent modern take on the classic chypre.

Glad you liked it. For me, it's one of those scents whose high quality I can appreciate, but I don't enjoy it that much. That said, I've enjoyed it more every time I've worn it. Have you tried Chypre Palatin, also by MDCI? Reviews have been excellent, and my experience has also been excellent with it.

Haven't tried that one yet. Another one for my to-test list.

Happy Birthday. I wish I could remember what I did on my 40th.

Guys can I ask for a recommendation? Looking for a scent to wear at an informal evening BBQ. Won't be hot - around 15-22C, probably.

I'm thinking maybe TF Tobacco Vanille or Creed MI, but here is my full set of choices:

Creed MI
TF Tobacco Vanille
Monegal Agar Musk
Monegal Ambra di Luna
Monegal Cuirelle
Monegal Mon Patchouly
Blenheim Bouquet
SL Chergui
SL Santal Majuscule
PG Djhenne
Tauer L'Air du Desert Marocain
Tauer Lonestar Memories
MF Kurkdjian Oud
Etat Libre d'Orange Afternoon of a Faun

I'm open to try any one of these. Which do you think?

TIA.

^ Lonestar Memories seems the obvious choice for a BBQ unless it's really a wine tasting with food. biggrin.gif

SOTD: Aventus. Decant is empty. Should I get more ? Getting rid of the horde of screaming models pulling each other hair for a minute of my attention is a huge inconvenience...
