Malle angeliques sous la pluie. I wonder if this had been reformulated. I had a sample of this when it was first released and I remember it being so subtle - it barely lasted half a day. Now I get a much stronger black pepper component and it seems to have much more longevity.

I'm wearing Frederic Malle today as well -- Vetiver Extraordinaire.

Does anyone have experience buying from the Essenza Nobile website? Prices for Malle are much lower than they are at Barney's or the Malle website/boutique, but shipping is from Germany, so I would imagine purchases would take awhile to get to you.

It takes a few weeks, but I've had great experiences with EN.

Cdg Sugi. Didn't last more than a couple hours, and it reminded me of something -- an herbal liqueur maybe? -- that I can't put my finger on. Whatever it is, not appealing.

Seville a l'Aube today. This is one of my favourites, and one of the first niche fragances that I went FB on. It's orangey and mildly sweet, which means it can be worn year-round. On me it has really good project; I'm still able to smell it easily 13 hours later without having to sniff at my wrists.

Those happen so frequently now no one pays attention anymore.

Todays sotd is Amouage Memoir Man. I think I need a full bottle of this. I got a whiff of cocoa at first spray this am and it surprised me a bit. Good stuff.

Good to know. The price difference subtracting VAT is ridiculous. I can buy a 100 mL Malle from EN for less than the price of the same scent in a 50 mL size from Barney's or the Malle boutique.

SOTD is Oud Wood. Like, but don't love, this scent (yet).

Today I wore CdG Harissa - such an interesting fragrance. Modern and juicy. A more accurate name would be Gazpacho. It always brings back good memories when I wear it because I bought it at the Comme des Garcons store in Tokyo and wore it during a trip there; it fit perfectly with the hyper-modernity of Tokyo.

By Kilian Good Girl Gone Bad. This is the last sort of thing I'd exepct to like; a feminine white floral. Despite that, I find myself liking it a lot. It's not too invasive nor girly, and it lasts for many hours. 9 hours so far and it still hasn't reached the dry-down.

SOTD L'Artisan L'eau de Navagateur. Meh, smells like bug spray. Not a fan. And I generally like this house too.

I have a FB of that one, bought at a garage sale. You somehow don't make me want to rush out and try it.

I was a little surprised to be honest. I usually at least like most of the scents from L'Artisan and love many but this was a total miss for me. Made me a bit nauseous actually. Well give it a try I guess and let me know how it goes smile.gif

Today I wore Pierre Balmain Ebene - this a fougere in the same vein as Rive Gauche Pour Homme, but man, even though it was created in the early 80s it is such a masterfully-blended fragrance with a lot of things going on. The main thing, I guess, is the evergreen component to it, which I find difficult to pull off for me to appreciate.

Today I wore Racine, one that M-C is a fan on, I believe. This one has quite an unusual opening, a sort of bitter citrus, which I quite like. It's a light citrusy vetiver, with a mossy drydown.
