amongst my top 5, out of probably 150-200 bottles. It's got monster projection and longevity and IMO smells thick and rich. Love the stuff and treasure my bottle dearly.

Re: Shiso, if it's something any of you are really hunting down, then CdG did an earlier series of leaves and one of them was Shiso. I remember smelling the sample in the first swap box many years ago IIRC.

@horns, btw I just reread my response about Chanel EdC and it may have seemed to sound aggressive but I assure you it wasn't.

@PetePan, many of the Fords you listed aren't really even his popular ones. Some of them yes, but he's got lots of other winners in the bunch. Then again, I found the Hermessence the same as you find the Fords, most aren't FBW. I only own one (Narguile) and would maybe consider another (Vetiver) but not at those prices...

Amber Absolute today, obviously.

Super Bowl Sunday, and the AA is still projecting like a linebacker on a blitz. Its really good stuff. Seems to be a healthy portion of incense in the mix, no? And a boozy note too. Whatever, its terrific.  OK, so now I have to track down a decant.

 

Scent of the Game Day:  PG Felanilla. This one is iris-dominant to my nose, which is  absolutely A-OK for me, since Iris has sort of come out of nowhere to be my favorite scent note--at least for now. Have a great day all.

Honore des Pres Nu Green today. Supposed to be an organic fragrance. Very close to the skin and very light. on the whole it's not the standard I'd expect from Olivia Giacobetti, who is responsible for two of my favourites: Idole and Philosykos.

Iris Ukiyoe nails fragrant daffodils perfectly.  I also get early blooming magnolia from it.  IU is on my buy list.

I have been looking for Rose Ikebana and Osmanthe Yunnan to try, also.

I've got a sample of Iris Ukiyoe, which is a very generous one like all the other Hermessence samples, and find it rather . . . screechy compared to the iris fragrances that I typically like. It seems to me that JC Ellena wanted a concept of the iris flower whereas I like the more dense, translucent rather than transparent type of iris.

Heavens, no, you were just just making discussion!

I agree completely with this. I really thought I'd enjoy Iris Ukiyoe, but I found it harsh and screechy.

Today: Amouage Epic Man.
post #18344 of 20220
Something a bit different today: Smell Bent's Franken Smellie S11#407. Their website describes it as "green, tart citrus and woods" whereas other places refer to it as "gardenia oud". I think the latter description is much closer to the mark. I kind of like it, but I think I need to apply less in future; it's pretty strong stuff. The wife hates it.

Memoir Man for me this evening. Like this one a lot. I do like the green scents. Its not a beast, but I can do more with the 'not beasts'

 

How would you describe Epic Man?
