Also, I've only sampled 2/4 but have been rather impressed with Masque Milano. I thought (small sample) Terralba was quite nice and have really enjoyed my decant of Russian Tea and hear good things about their Tobacco one. You guys tried any?
I have samples of Montecristo
and Russian Tea
. Both are very interesting but very hard to approach. Montecristo
is some STANKY stuff, man. Dried hyrax piss - seriously. It just isn't my smell, but I could see someone who lives a clinically-clean life and in such an equivalent environment could wear this fragrance as maybe an aesthetic cantilever to everything else. I don't know, but it's too much for me.Russian Tea
is much easier to approach but is still too dense for my comfort. There's an aromachemical in it that I find way too harsh, and I think it's magnolia. I absolutely love the smell of magnolia blossoms, but what they sometimes call magnolia in perfumery hits me the wrong way.
Today, along with yesterday, I'm wearing Sycomore
