Cool weather here today so rocking Slumberhouse Baque.
Take a break from fragrances and gutted that I missed the limited edition slumberhouse offering :(
Nice! I will try it. I have Chanel PM and CPM vintage, which would be in any Top 10 list I made. Look forward to trying the Concentrée.
For me today, its SL Fille en Aiguilles. I am very enthusiastic about the pine+incense accord. Am a little less so about the SL Arabie-esque fruit mix on top, but none the less enjoy the total composition.
Hi Osiris. I have been looking high and low for Bacque. How do you like it? What are the notes you get from it?
Yes, I like it too. L'Occi Vet is not the most vetiver-y vetiver, but is a very nice mix of zingy notes on top and more rich woody notes right after/under.
HOme tonight after an unexpected absence (finally got power back at my house, after 5 days), I went right for the Profumi del Forte Versillia Vintage Ambra Mediterrenea.
Annnnddd, its yet another captivating amber. I have not yet tried an amber I disliked, so take what follows with a few grains of salt.
This one is a bit different than the other ambers I have tried and enjoyed in the last several months. From the PdF, I get a sweet amber/benzoin + a distinct petrol/leather note + orange blossom. Sound weird? It isn't weird at all, its a beautiful blend. Of course, it helps that I really like all three of the above components.
Over at BN this one is flagged as a very macho amber. Not sure about that, but it is very beautiful and different from the several other quality scents crowding the Amber Category. Terrific, really.
Have a great week all.
Wore NdN today, think im going to relegate this to cool weather evening wear, just don't like it during the day although its not winter either, the weather definitely plays a role in my ideal perception of a fragrance and the optimum occasion to wear them.
Its not one of my common go to fragrances, truthfully I associate it more with being a winter fragrance but its among one of the more unique fragrances I have and have tried - although the same could be said about most of slumberhouse I guess. Anyway I get faint boozy notes, spices and the faintest hints of apricot. It goes on a bit strong but settles down very quickly into a nice mellow vibe. Solid longevity (again pretty common trait to most SH sans sona/sana et al ) I use a light touch and get whiffs of it all throughout the day.
love black afgano, its not a fragrance you would wear with a suit and tie but a very light spray is fantastic during the winter. PG Coze' shares a couple of the core ingredients but in a much more refined and elegant manner. Pardon would be worth it if it had the staying power of BG or Duro but too ephemeral, are better of just layering lidge (imo).
