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! Edited by Maquis - 4/6/13 at 12:52pm
