Couer de Vetiver Sacre today - quite a complex scent and seems to be doing a lot on my skin. (Did you snag one of these Osiris?)

I grabbed it when L'Artisan had it on sale a month or two ago. I like it! I get tea as much as I get vetiver from it though.

Looking forward to trying some of the new MFK Aqua Vitae and from the lucky scent email 10 - roam by Odin sounds interesting.

Feedback on the Aqua Vitae will be much appreciated.  I have not had time to order another sample pack from MFK. I have Absolue Pour Le Soir and Amyris Homme on my list.

No, just the Figuire for me.  I am mildly concerned that they have not arrived yet though...

Ok, I now have a gazillion samples, and have greatly expanded my full bottle range. Here's what I currently have bottles of:

AdP Colonia Assoluta
Amouage Interlude Man
Amouage Memoir Man
Creed Aventus
Dior Eau Sauvage
Divine L'Homme Sage
ELDO Je Suis un Homme
ELDO Eloge du Traitre
Frapin L'Humaniste
FM Bois d'Orage
Hermes TdH
L’Artisan Coeur de Vetiver Sacre
Mugler Cologne
Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Man

I don't really care for anything too powdery, too musky, or too floral. I kinda want to get a cacoa/coffee/anise or tobacco something but haven't found the right one quite yet. Maybe Bond New Haarlem, maybe Guerlain LIDGE, Slumberhouse Ore, etc. SL Borneo is ok, SL Chergui gives me a headache, and SL Fumerie Turque ends up too powdery. Pure Havane and Pure Malt were both in the borderline headache realm for me so they aren't gonna make it. A super beachy scent like L'Artisan Cote d'Amour might be good to add for next summer. Of niche shareable scents I've given my wife FM Portrait of a Lady, FM L'eau d'Hiver, and ELDO Like This so I can always steal those if I want. What am I missing? Any recs?

Today: Coeur de Vetiver Sacre.
post #17138 of 20481
Pre-shower: TF Urban Musk. I've always enjoyed this, but there's a note that's just a bit too sweet, and that prevents it from being one of my favorites.
SOTD: Une Rose Chypree

I received mine Tuesday after placing my order Thursday afternoon, if that's any guide.

I have a sample of PF, but I'm not certain I want to go FB on it, even at those prices.

SOTD: Tauer LDDM!!

 

Cheers for sharing the delivery time, will give it till tomorrow to arrive before I worry then :)  Disappointing to hear you didn't enjoy PF that much but hey each to their own. Blind buy for me so hopefully it works out as a summery scent I imagine it to be.  I did factor in though that worst case scenario should be able to ebay it at minimal loss.

I am wearing my eveningtime scent now, which is Jicky. After the top notes disappear, this is an amazing scent. (The fecal note at the top seemed especially prominent to me today.)
post #17143 of 20481

Put on some Havana for the evening and got a strong whiff of alcohol on the top notes..not sure how that change has occurred but im now paranoid that the light in the wardrobe is responsible and my other bottles may be affected >.<

Frapin stuff is so hit and miss. Paradis Perdu, hmmmm, no thanks!

That's a well-curated selection of bottles you have. Concerning your likes and dislikes, some fragrances that come to mind that I think you should try would be Yohji Homme, and it was currently re-released but I love the anise in the original release.
A tobacco-smelling fragrance, but does not follow the annoying convention that it has to smell like sweet pipe tobacco, is Yosh Sombre Negre. This one smells like fine cured cigarette or cigar tobacco.

Today: Knize Ten
