They also have a small store in London off Picadilly near the Ritz. You can try most of their scents there. Although mostly I just buy the lotions for my wife. I do like Tabacco Toscana though.

Thanks man I got to get samples of these great patchouli base fragrances. I just Order a 5ml decant of Dior Oud Isaphan and 1/2ml of Kilian Back to Black. I will update once I get these in the mail and thanks for your advice.

Basically a dark bitter green rooty smokey plant thing. I never cared for it, although on rare occasions when someone wanted something vetiver like but darker I showed it.

Haha! I feel the same way. Except for I never had to sell it to people.

Midnight in Paris today, even though it’s Noon in Melbourne.

Hey all

For me tonight its Dans Tes Bras, because its a favorite.Violet, salt & musk. Simple, weird, compelling.  sui generis

 

A number of the reviews for this one refer to it as discrete, muted, short, etc. I can't explain these reviews. DTB on me projects big and lasts all day.

I only own a few Malles and DtB is one of them. It's weird but I find it compelling. On my it's salty sweet, and other stuff I have a hard time describing. More of an aroma I suppose.

SOTE is Rien by ELDO. It's a dry, very bitter leather.

L’Inc have you seen the new Rien flanker that ELdO have come out with?

Afternoon outdoor plans with some family from out of town with whom I've not met in ages. Will dip into the wine-cooler stash.

Gardenia is NOT one of my favorite Chanels... but in the right setting it's worth a try. It's a wet, lush white floral that is surprisingly sweet for a Chanel parfum. Wear it on a dry, hot August afternoon outside and it's really lovely.

Wore CdG Wonderoud yesterday afternoon and last night - it is similar to Wonderwood as far as skeletons go, but I really like the oud one because in typical CdG fashion it is a light take on it, with the oud paired with the dryness of the rest of the woods very well to have a non-cloying oud. I recommend you guys giving it a try.

I don't know how this has passed under my nose all these years, but I bought a bottle of CdG 3 yesterday. I'm always on the lookout for a good light fragrance, though I prefer heavier ones for the reason that they are more complex and hold my interest, but CdG 3 has a freshness for summer yet has an underlying spice and woods, along with an incense quality that has a sneaky transition from the opening brightness. It probably has 80% Iso E Super in it but I don't care.

Rach, I'd suck your dick for some vintage No. 19 extrait. I wouldn't know what I'm doing, but I'd do it.

I mean, let's get down to brass tacks!

Pre-shower: Chergui. It's a dark, rich tobacco and honey scent. Good longevity and moderate projection.
SOTD: Cafe Rose. This is one of my very favorites. As usual, I don't pick up the coffee. It opens dry and peppery, and develops from there into a beautiful rose/saffron/patchouli accord.
