SOTD: Bois D'argent. If anybody wants to buy a 30ml decant of this let me know. Not really my type of scent.

This is so awesome... rotflmao.gif

SOTD: Vintage Eau Sauvage. I had a fitting with my tailor this morning, so I didn't want to smoke him out with something huge. Man, I forgot how good this juice is! I have a vintage mini I picked up somewhere, but now I'm scouting out vintage FBs on eBay...

For the evening, I layered the dwindling Eau Sauvage with Terre d'Hermes. I dunno, this just doesn't sing to me. It's serviceable, but not transcendent.

**On a side note, I received a gift bottle of Parfums Regine's Regine's for Men. Has anyone here ever heard of this? It seems pretty hard to find any info on it. On first sniff, it seems like an aromatic fougère in the Cool Water style, but a bit darker and spicier with a touch of leather. It's way too "sneezy" for me, though I'm not a big fougère guy. Kind of reminds me a bit of one of the (many of) Creed's fragrances I dislike...

Le Labo Santal 33 - Oil version.

I had a client in the shop today tell me that Le Labo recommends people to leave their newly compounded bottles alone for a few months to macerate. In theory it makes perfect sense, but I can't see how they expect people to do that. Anyone heard of that?

It's from 1989, and it really smells like it. It's a big '80s masculine with prominent leather and vetiver notes. It's also quite spicy. But integrated into all that is a big rose. I can't imagine anyone in the world thinking for a moment that this is feminine.

Montale Black Aoud today. Went to a meet-up of the local BN members. Cafe smelled like a courtesan's boudoir by the time we left.

Honestly, this sounds like a bunch of marketing/hype bullshit.

They told me the same thing at the boutique here in NYC.

Today is Monsieur de Givenchy. On an old-school citrus chypre kick, I guess...

To me, the marketing hype bullshit happens to be the whole mixing the fragrance at the boutique. It's pretty standard industry technique to mix the materials and allow them to meld together before their bottling and sale. My own personal, anecdotal experience was that the perfume I made with Yosh Han changed considerably over a few months after I made it.
This is why I find it absurd Le Labo mixes the fragances individually in the first place.

SOTD: Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet
post #14863 of 21029
plus no matter how careful they are at measuring, I find it hard to believe that each mix will be exactly the same, so it's not just batch variations, it's bottle variations!

Today: Rive Gauche.
post #14865 of 21029
I wore Cafe Rose today.
