post #14701 of 19927
I spent quite a bit of time at MiN this weekend also and went through most of the ELdO line and found them all to be off-putting - they all have this rusty metallic vibe going on that must be their signature accord. I thought I was going to like Like This Tilda Swinton but it became a dull floral. I must say that Tom of Finland was my favorite, but there's quite a bit of overlap between this one and Patchouli 24 and think I'd prefer purchasing the latter.
Parfum d'Empire was a wonderful line as were Parfums d'Orsay, and I got samples of both Cuir Ottoman and L'Intrigante.

Sorry L'Inc! I wanted to like ELdO but just couldn't get into them.

@ HORNS, did you check out the Naomi Goodsirs at MiN? (There are only two— Cuir Velour and Bois d'Ascèse.) I know you really like Patchouli 24, so I thought Bois d'Ascèse might be right up your alley...not as tarry as Patchouli 24, but big resin & smoke accords, still...

I did try the Naomi Goodsirs, and like several of the lines MiN carries needs some olfactory rumination to get what they are about - the lines MiN carries is well-curated and very niche - i.e. unconventional and take some time to figure out what works for you.

MiN is a great boutique, but the lighting is absolutely atrocious in there and the bitchy queen, who I can only assume is one of the managers because I don't see how the woman also working in there could be above him and still allow him to act the way he does, is quite annoying.

I've switched into Leonard de Leonard for the evening. It's a pleasant green floral chypre. It's an '80s feminine, and it smells like it.

MiN is where you tell your significant other you will be "stopping by" for "a minute just to quickly check a just arrived Mona di Oro" and end up spending most of your afternoon experimenting and comparing niche fragrances...
One extra pit stop to Santa Maria Novella before a winter pear martini at Pravda for a complete soho saturday afternoon. biggrin.gif
