New West. I'd like to use up this bottle in the next year or ten.

Sunday - we went to brunch with some colleagues of Mrs. Thomas's I had the vague impression it would be a somewhat seedy sort of place, but it was more like a tea-room in appearance and manner. The food was quite good, the companions were convivial (I was the only male at the table), and I wish I had shaven this morning and worn something other than Kingdom.

^I'll bet you made quite the impression, T... all stink and roses. :0

Anyway, the talk about Angel yesterday got me searching through "the box" and I realized I have a small bottle in there. So, I'm wearing that today... I really like it and can see why it is such a big "hit:" the fresh, citrus-y top notes make it wearable in warmer weather, but the heavier, deepier "Food" notes (the vanilla, chocolate, etc.) also make it interesting when it gets cooler. I still like Fresh Cannabis Santal much better, but amongst mainstream scents, this one is still pretty good.

I've been wearing L'Artisan Parfumeur's Méchant Loup pretty much every day for the last month at least. I just don't get tired of it.

The problem with Angel is it is very distinctive and it is hard to disassociate it from particular people. It is not helpful when your wife is only one of the people you know who wear it.

Wouldn't that be true to some extent of every scent?

Argh. You've exposed me! (As opposed to me exposing me.)

^Definitely give Fresh Cannabis Santal a try. It has the sweet/sugary/foody goodness of angel with a slightly more refined/classy edge. And, it will perhaps gets away from some of the "associative" properties of Angel.

Funny story about that, though... in college, there was a little French guy who lived down the hall who was the most revolting human being I've ever met (in terms of personality, outdated opinions/bigotry, physical appearance, and personal hygiene). He also wore Guerlain's Habit Rouge and now anytime somebody is wearing it, I think of him and it turns my nose. It's sad, too, because HR is a brilliant scent and an absolute classic. I just can't get away from the association with him and so can't stand the smell!

two rich for my blood Old Spice aftershave baby. I would describe it as old and spicy
post #1586 of 20490
^Oh, come on, we've got to get you trying something new! If you like something that is classic and a little spicey (and also rather affordable when bought either at a fragrance discounter or online), I'd try Escada Pour Homme, Giorgio Red for Men, Gucci pour Homme (the Tom Ford one), YSL Rive Gauche or YSL M7, Richard James EdT, or Guerlain Heritage. All of them are really quite nice and if you look carefully, probably less than $30!

Well you may have lived a richer life than I have. But really, Angel is very distinct, or at least it is to me, and makes a very strong imprint. I can't think of many others that are as strong markers.

No problem! Definitely check around and never pay retail for mass-market designer scents. www.scentiments.com is a good resource and I've always had good experiences with them. As well, if you live near a TJ Maxx or a Marshall's, they'll sometimes have some good stuff, although they can be a little bit more expensive with less selection than the online discounters. Last time I was there, they had a few you might like... the Escada was $12-20 (for 40ml-75ml sizes), they had 50ml Red for Men for $20, and also Azzaro Pour Homme (a spicey one you might like) for $20. If you aren't near a TJ Maxx and might want to try any of the last two... PM me as I have bottles I'm not using. Good luck and have fun!

So after the hoity-toity bruncheon, we went to Lowes and picked up a garage door opener which I then installed, just so I could feel manly again. Afterwards we began negotiations for conjugal relations (I figure she owes me big time for that brunch) and post-shower I am now sporting Ava-Luxe Kama. I'm not as head-over-heels for this one as I once was, but who knows what effect it may have on Mrs. T?
