I enjoy Black Orchid, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. It is a very heavy, dense fragrance that many people read as feminine. It projects like crazy, so you need to apply lightly. Of the Escentric Molecules, I really like Escentric 01, which is lots and lots of Iso-E Super, but also a very bright lime note and pink pepper. It's a real compliment getter. Unlike Black Orchid, it requires a fairly heavy application.

I've switched into Moss Breches for my eveningtime scent.

As Osiris mentioned, it is Cup Day here and a cracking sunny day, just gorgeous. I went with L'Humaniste FTW. There were doubts about its staying power among the tipsters but it kept up with the field and ran the race right out to the end.

Another lovely sunny day here, so for the next sample in my challenge I looked for a citrusy EDC. I turned up a vial of Aspley Purple Water, which I'm really enjoying. Big blast of citrus on application, and I think I'm just picking up a hint of ginger in the dry-down, which I missed the last time I sampled this.

Merchant Loup for me today.
So quick and lightweight, I think I missed it.

Frederic Malle dries van noten today.

 

Vanilla and woods undertones blended quite nicely

I like Dries van Noten a lot. I've been surprised at the lukewarm reaction of the online fragrance community.

Pre-shower: Black Orchid
SOTD: TV (Tobacco Vanille)

I think part of the issue is the lack of projection vs its price.  It does die down to a skin scent pretty quickly.  I have seen a lot of people complain about longevity.  Seems to hold up for me.

Very high-quality perfume. For orris scents, though, I prefer the depth of Iris 39, but I'd love to smell Iris Poudre on my wife (she smelled it and had zero interest in it).

It's Ladies' Day at the races today, so I am wearing a ladies' cologne: Escale a Portofino.

Wearing black orchid today and 2 months later my Lucky scent samples show up so look forward to trying those and sharing some impressions over the coming days.

I am wearing Leather Oud for my eveningtime scent. Now I have a manly feeling.
