Noir Epices Frederic Malle

I just tried the new mens Bottega Veneta fragrance for men. Its very leathery and woody. I love it.

La Fleur du Male is this morning's sample. Sweet and soapy it is. Not sure I'm going to like this in an hour or so.

Yes, I do like it. Since it was the forerunner to the oud craze that's still in full steam, you might think it's merely a sketch of the better, more complex scents that followed. (Sort of like Coty Chypre in relation to Mitsouko, etc.) But that's not the case at all. M7 is a rich, complex oud that absolutely stands on its own. It's got some of that medicinal oud feel, but there are also some dirty, animalic and sweet, balmy facets. (I am wearing the original M7, and not the new M7 Oud Absolu. I haven't tried the latter.)

My pre-shower scent today is Eau Particuliere by Diptyque. I haven't decided on my SOTD yet, but I promise to inform you all when the time is right.

EDIT: Okay, I guess there's a reason they call me "Man of Moss Breches" it's because I'm wearing Moss Breches.

Hardly any projection today, so I applied some Allure pour Homme Édition Blanche in the afternoon.

O'Driu Re de Spade sample today. Has anybody tried this? I'm no good at identifying individual notes, and there is no material anywhere as to what O'Driu claim is in it. The best I can manage to describe it is fuel oil with a whiff of something green, which is gradually coming through.

I like the M7 Oud Absolue, and the essential component, to me, was the myrhh in the drydown.  If you dont like myrhh, it is no go.

I've read some online reviews of Oud Absolu, and they've typically been lukewarm, comparing it unfavorably to the original. I've never tried Oud Absolu, though, so I don't know if they're right. The myrrh doesn't sound promising.

After a few moments of deliberation, I decided that Ambre Nuit should be my eveningtime fragrance, maybe because "nuit" is in the name. This is definitely one of my favorites from the Dior Collection Privee.
