Today: Chanel Cuir de Russie eau de cologne - skanky stuff from what I've deduced to come from the 1950s.

Anyone here tried Montale Aoud Leather?

 

SOTD: Tom Ford Tobacco Oud. Still deciding whether this is FB worthy.

 

Also ordered some ELDO samples. Extremely curious on Rien, Rien Intense, Afternoon of the Faun and Tom of Finland.

Afternoon of a Faun took a while to grow on me. I bought a 1 ml sample as soon as it came out and I enjoyed it, but not enough to consider buying more. Then out of the blue I had a craving for it and so I bought a 5 ml sample. Once I sprayed that one on, I loved it.

Tom of Finland is fantastic too, IMO.

Helmut Lang EdC today. Wish I could find more of this.

Found a FB of Lancome Climat today in an op shop. I hope it’s not a fake; still trying to find out.

UPDATE: checked with a vintage perfume site and was advised that my bottle is a fair-dinkum 1980s EdT. Goody.

@rach2jlc have you tried the re-issued Helmut Lang EdC? I read a review of it that seemed to suggest it lacked much longevity, but was otherwise pretty good.

Today, I'm wearing Ambre Russe, which I bought a sample of last year, used up rapidly, and just now got some more - and am realizing I should have probably bought a much larger decant. I get a lot of vodka, honey, and amber (oh, and...beeswax? is that the same as honey?) out of this one - definitely some leather, too, and I like how the leather stays close to the skin. I can't say I can pick out the other notes that people on the internet seem to get from it (champagne, coriander, incense, tea, etc.), but I am also getting over a cold. I like this one a lot.

Today: Jubilation XXV - probably the most well-composed and complex incense fragrances ever made.
