How do you like it? I'm one of the few defenders of Byredo here, but I do understand the criticisms people tend to make. MM is very aromatic and masculine, but like some other Byredos, the longevity really leaves something to be desired. I think Bullion, Baudelaire, and La Tulipe are really good from this line. M/Mink is interesting; I wouldn't say I enjoy it, but it's fun to wear from time to time.

Master-Classter is our forum expert on Byredo. I wonder what he thinks of MM?

I have switched into Leonard de Leonard for the evening. That is an odd thing to have done, since Parure was my SOTD. Oh well.

I do really enjoy it. The longevity wasnt too bad but I did smell it on me as I was in passing. I have oud immortel from Byredo and I really like that.

One of these days Byredo is going to click with me - after it's been reformulated and I regret not getting the original formulations.

Yesterday: Bois d'Iles and still going strong on me. I'm telling you, those Chanel Les Exclusifs are some of the best buys in perfumery.

Diptyque Eau Particulire. The description from the Diptyque site:
Quote:
A symbolic atypical product from diptyque: the toilet vinegar with a fresh enveloping fragrance built around afloral green accord. Sweetness is provided by rose and musks, freshness by mint.

What the fuck is a toilet vinegar?

Hmm. What I know of toilet vinegar (vinaigre de toilette en francais) is that it's a beauty product from the 19th century that's meant primarily for skincare. It really does have vinegar as one of the ingredients. They had a sharp, herbal smell; I wonder if that's what the fragrance is supposed to replicate?

I get green backed up by a faint hint of the musk. nothing really vinegar-y.

I just noticed that Diptyque actually has a fragrance in their lineup called Vinaigre de Toilette. That's odd.

Do you like the Eau Particuliere?
post #14924 of 21239
not at all. in fact, i think i'm liking it less and less as time goes on.

I switched into Bond No. 9 Hamptons for the evening. I just reached into one of my boxes and decided to wear whatever I grabbed. I haven't worn this in a while. I definitely don't remember liking it as much as I'm liking it now. This is a wonderful crisp, green, velvety rose scent.
