SOTD: L'Essence de Cerutti. No point rocking niche fragrances when my head's too blocked up to even smell them.

Today I wore vintage Vol de Nuit parfum again. Only a few more weeks before it will get too warm to wear this much, so I've got to get in the winter fragrances while I still can...

Went to Aedes today and spent a long time re-smelling many of the HdP line, as well as the Frederic Malles. Getting close to pulling the trigger on 1826, 1725, and Olympia Music Hall—there are some good ones for the summer in there. They are getting a shipment of the 2 oz. half-sizes of the entire line next week, so the plan is to spring for them once they come in....

I also checked out the Olfactive Studio and J.F. Schwarzlose lines. There seemed to be some high quality, well made stuff there (although I think my nose was already pretty tired, so I'll have to revisit them again later...)

Where did you get this vintage Vol de Nuit Maquis?

Today: Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui - from my Dad who got it for Christmas back in the late 80's.

If I'm not mistaken, you've asked that already, and IIRC, the answer was www.surrendertochance.com . That's where I got mine too. tongue.gif
http://surrendertochance.com/guerlain-vol-de-nuit-vintage-pure-parfum/ They also have the EDT (much cheaper). http://surrendertochance.com/guerlain-vol-de-nuit-edt-vintage/

SOTD: Amouage - Honour Man

Frederic Malle, Musc Ravageur. Not too many nice musks out there.

I stalked eBay for a couple months and jumped on a vintage 15 ml unopened bottle from 1967 (supposedly) when it came up. It wasn't cheap, but when you think that this is all there will ever be of the original fragrance, I think it's worth it. (I'm not so sure about the $1,000 Patou Pour Homme's on eBay, though...)

Today: Divine l'Homme de Coeur. This was a scrubber the first time I tried it, but this time it was pleasant. The minty/cut green stem accord (Angelica? Iris?) last time almost made me sick, but this time I put less on, and it seemed generally lighter and fresher. I may try this again...

Got a few hours to myself this morning and went on a Sephora sample bender. There are, like, 3 or 4 within walking distance of each other, so I hit them up and got some new ones as well as some I wanted to give another chance to:

Dior Homme, V &R Spicebomb, Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme, Hermes Ambre des Merveilles & Eau d'Orange Verte, and Chanel Coco EdP (for my wife). Not the craziest selection but hey, it's Sephora, and its free. (Sephora is supposedly going to carry some Serge Lutens, as well...)

Btw, I heard that L'Artisan Parfumeur will be "discontinuing" most of the line this year and that they'll split up the remaining fragrance line between high-end boutique-only sales and more commercial distributors, I don't really know what "discontinue most of their line" means, but that's what Karl from Aedes told me yesterday. Perhaps it's time to stock up?

Edit: I mixed up Serge Lutens and L'Artisan in my head, but It's actually L'Artisan that "will discontinue most of their line" this year, and (some) Serge Lutens that will be carried by (some) Sephoras. Sorry for any confusion! shog[1].gif

Totally! Can't you remember the 16th of November 2012 anymore? I am disappoint.

For me pre-shower scent, I sampled Stilettos on Lex by Jul et Mad. I like this very much, especially at the top and in the heart; the base is a boozy Madagascar vanilla plus patchouli, and I'm not as nuts about that, though I don't dislike it. It opens up citrusy and tart, but develops quickly into a lovely floral featuring violet leaf and rose. It reminds me just a little bit of Violet Blonde. I've tried two of the three scents from Jul et Mad, and I like both quite a bit. (The other one is Terrasse a St. Germain.)

SOTD: Angelique Noire by Guerlain

This afternoon I'm wearing on my wrist some Parure extrait that I haven't tried in a while.

SOTD: Creed Original Vetiver.

To be honest, I prefer the Guerlain Vetiver but my senses have grown dull to the scent over time. frown.gif

Guerlain Coriolan today. I spilt the bloody thing in the bathroom trying to decant it, and now my wife is filthy on me.
post #15660 of 20584
today went with Essentric 01 as usual and a liberal spritzing (1 chest, 1 neck, 2 wrist) or Armani Privee Bois D'Encense. Didn't last as long as I would have liked but was well received by the coworkers
