Pre-shower: Hanae Mori HiM. As Rambo said the other day, this is definitely aimed at the mainstream fragrance market, but it's nonetheless very good for what it is.

SOTD: Portrait of a Lady. Not aimed at the mainstream fragrance market.

EDIT: Just got a very strong compliment on Portrait of a Lady. A colleague in the English department just came to my office to ask what I was wearing. She said it smelled amazing!

How much of PoaL do you apply, L'Inc?

SOTD: Knize Ten.

I just received some vintage (80s?) Caron Pour un Homme and tried it out. I find the lavender to be much more bracing than the current version, and the lemony vanilla to be not as sweet and creamy, either (or maybe it's just that the camphorous quality to the lavender overpowers the vanillic sweetness?).

In any case, it seems *very* different, but I like it...

(That is, if the burning now on my wrist goes away....)

I went a little heavier than usual today: four sprays.

FYI, there's a very good deal on Dior Ambre Nuit at STC. Don't know how many of you have tried that one, but it's one of the best--and maybe the best--of the Private Collection, IMO at least.

Today testing out Kokorico (sp?) and M7 Absolute. Both actually pretty nice!

I've known a few people to relay that and have heard from a few who say it was fascinating to observe the effects of maceration as their bottle came together. That said, I think it's an interesting marketing angle, and it seems to work among a very small sub-set of the population: the ones who think nothing of dropping that kind of dough, who probably have backup bottles, who like the personalized labels, who want to be a little closer into the process, and like the theatrics.

I mean, consider wine buyers who wait YEARS for their wines to mature.
