SOTD: Aqua Universalis Forte.  Applied in early morning, wisps and waffs throughout the day, then in late afternoon, coffee barista asked me what I was wearing.  So longevity and projection are better than what my nose is telling me.

I recently gave my wife a bottle—she loves it. It's such a beautiful fragrance that I may end up stealing it from her... smile.gif

SOTD: Habit Rouge

Today I am wearing Cartier Declaration d'un Soir. Anyone who don't believe that ain't know what's what.

Random grab from my fragrances drawer today: Armani Code. I haven't worn this one for years.

Today: Silver Mountain Water - I think this one was made for Dodi Fayed. Or was it Kurt Cobain?

This evening: Vol de Nuit.

I was just thinking about Creed in the context of Kris Kross. As I'm sure everyone knows, Chris Kelly died yesterday. I wonder which of Creed's fragrances was made for the "Mac Daddy." It'll probably sell very well this week.

Today is an Ormonde Man day. Sunny but crisp. Now I can pretend I'm in a lush coniferous forest somewhere instead of sitting at a computer shuffling a mouse around...

I got a tester of Comme des Garcons 2 a couple of weeks ago and wearing it on my wrist right now. After several wearings I am really digging its soapy, floral, spicy cleanliness. This one has always been overlooked by me.

Pre-shower: Kouros
SOTD: Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche. I dreamed about wearing this last night, so that seemed like as good a reason as any to wear it.

O senhor fala alemão!

When I was a youngster, I thought that Kölnischwasser was the word for masculine perfume, since in everyday English we use cologne to mean that.

Hey, this is a forum for English-speaking people. Is it that difficult to grasp?!?!

Thinking about it, I think it's funny that you say "cologne". Not even "water from cologne" or so. So basically, you're always referring to the town itself. I wonder what the pure essence of Cologne smells like, condensed to a fragrance.
Also, in Germany fragrances are usually referred to as Parfum. Or, a bit more fancy, Duft. I guess the vast majority doesn't even know "Kölnischwasser" anymore. Nor Eau de Cologne.

I'm quite sure that the vast majority of Americans do not know that Cologne is a city in Germany. (I was there once. It was a lot smaller than I expected.)

I had a German friend who told me that Germans called perfume "Coco Chanel." Is there any truth to that at all?

I've never heard anyone over here call perfume "Coco Chanel", to be honest. I hope I haven't shattered the illusion your friend so carefully created for you, and if I did, I hope it didn't disturb you too much.
