I like Leather Oud a lot, but i fear that it's just too butch for the likes of me.

FWIW, I am wearing Al Oudh now. (I had to take an extra shower owing to some car repair activities, so I figured I'd put on a new scent.)

I was looking at the scent pyramid for Leather Oud on Fragrantica and noticed that there is no cumin, which I find strange because that is a BIG component in the dry-down for me.

I took a shower for a beer tasting dinner tonight, so I switched: Les Nuits d'Hadrien - one of my all-time favorites and a long time since I've worn it as well. Why with a beer tasting? A few years ago I spent a week touring breweries in Upper Bavaria and brought along only this fragrance, so there's a strong olfactory memory context that Nuits and beer drinking have with each other.

It's a good deal, so you should PM him for more info if it sounds interesting.
yepper, still available. PM if interested. I agree, it's a sort of old world classic Eyetalian gentleman / dandy type fragrance. Citrus, bit floral, some wood, and soft drydown.

SotD = Creed's Spice & Wood. Actually quite nice! it's a dry spicey wood with some incense, pepper, etc. Sort of light wearing but present, gone after 4-5 hour max though. It's not crazy priced, but still nowhere near acceptable. 250ml size only, $640 + 13% taxes... ouch!

Trying out HdP 1740 today.

 

Liking it so far.

OK, I looked back on my samples of Dior Homme and have one from the bottle with the metal tube in the middle and then one with the black plastic tube down the middle. The sample I'm comparing to Volutes is the one with the black tube.

Last summer, when I got these samples from Sephora, there were two samples out and both were simply Dior Homme (not Intense) and I noticed at that time there was a difference and so asked for two separate samples. I am not sure where the other sample went.

I almost chose it. Went for Bois de Santal at the counter though.

So, early morning: TdH.
Midday: Keiko Mecheri - Bois de Santal. Smelled good, unfortunately poor sillage/longevity.
Afternoon: Byredo - Bouillon. This has good sillage. And smells good.

SOTD: Derby reissue with a tiny bit of Knize Ten thrown in for good measure. It was actually really nice.
post #15686 of 19956
Bulgari Eau The Rouge today. First time I've tried it - as an aftershave balm. It's unusual, but I think I can wear this OK.
post #15687 of 19956
FYI: They've introduced the entire Bond line at a few Nordstrom's across the country.

Hardcore shit, right there.

Trying on some samples on blotters:

Ramon Monegal Umbra - nice vetiver similar to, but not as sweet as, Hermes Vetiver Tonka.

Were you out shopping today? (Is that what you meant by "the counter?") If so, did you get to try Attar de Roses?

I like Bullion quite a bit; it's definitely one of my favorite Byredos. It's too bad it's so hard to find.
