@Geoffrey Firmin I concur with master-classter about Avignon. Very much reminds me of my altar boy days, shaking the censer around the church. Mecca are the distributors of CdG in Australia but I'm not sure that they carry Avignon anywhere for you to sample; you can get it online from them.

CD amazed by the intensity and staying power of Amouage woke up Monday morning and it was apparently there, not sure about it for summer but would definitely be a Autumn/Winter scent.

Today I went with two discontinued greats: Rochas Lui and then Dolce&Gabbana By Man.

I generally think of Amouage as cold-weather scents. Maybe Reflection, Ciel and Silver for the warm weather, but the rest are a bit too much for me in summer.

Today: Je Suis Un Homme. Was my subconscious needing some reminding after I shaved off my moustache?

I find this scent a bit meh, frankly, but it certainly lasts, I'll give it that - 14 hours so far.

Pre-shower: ELDO Vierge et Toreros. This is a tuberose and leather scent. Despite the odd combination of notes, it has a very classic masculine feel.
SOTD: Une Fleur de Cassie. One of my very favorites in any genre.

P FRAPIN & CIE L'HUMANISTE now this is summer and very well suited to the day which is not as stinking hot as yesterday. Strong citrus to begin then an aromatic herbal aroma enters the picture and something else which my olfactory abilities have not been able to finger yet.

Working my way through the collection and today was work from home so I decided to break out a bit of a sticker - Serge Lutens Musc Kublai Khan!

Sort of like Serge Noir, with the dry spicey cloves and wood, that plus dry dirty florals and musk. It's good, it's interesting, but a little stinky and actually I'm not even sure I actually like the smell, beyond just the naughtyness. I have Keihls Original Musk, Tom Ford Urban Musk, and Kirkdjian's Absolute pour le Soir, so I'm going to test all those back to back and see who comes out on top.

L'Humaniste for me today too. The house of Frapin has been around long enough to know what the original humanists smelled like, so I'll take their word for it that they smelled of lemon, pepper and booze (I can well believe the latter). I suppose most humanists smelled bad at the end of their life, which this does too, but they probably lived a bit longer than this does.

It's definitely powerful stuff.

Tonight I'm wearing Knize Ten.

Today I wore a scent called True Lust Rayon Violet de Ses Yeux. I don't know what's gotten into me but I've been loving this lately.

Etro Via Velli today.
post #23159 of 25686
Today I slapped on (applied to chest via atomizer) some Sycomore.

SOTD: Amber Flash. I'm still enjoying this a lot.
