Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread - Page 1545

post #23161 of 25693
Lots of good Leather Chypres this week. I'll join you with DIORLING (again), a leather chypre in the Bandit vibe. I was also thinking of doing Chanel CdR (thank'ee HORNS), but Diorling was in front in the wine cooler.

In other news, I'm excited that I found a good price on a vintage bottle of Diorama... Roudnitska's first Dior masterpiece. I'll report when I receive it... and it's a big bottle so I'm happy to share if anybody wants to send me an empty spray bottle to try. I'll be happy to trade for equal amounts of some of these new lovely ones you guys are spritzing and about which I know nothing.

This is also true of all of my scents. If anybody has empty spray bottles and wants to try... send them my way. Even with my reduced collection, I have too much juice and am happy to share.

And you, sir, stink WONDERFUL.

If you can't find Diorling, let me know. You'd love it. Imagine CdR and Bandit mixed with Chanel No5, with a drydown that punches you in the face.

I have a few drops left of Bandit but I find myself saving it for posterity, or at least until I buy some more. I do the same thing with my tiny bit of Biche dans l'absinthe. That one is gone forever though, so I'll just keep my tiny bit as a reference.

I'm wearing Aromatics Elixir today.

Bandit reminds me of a cross between Cuir de Russie and No 19 - the birch tar of one and the intense galbanum of the latter, while having the creamy jasmine (tuberose?) of both.

This is an apt review, IMHO. Add the dry rocky coldness of No5 and I think you have DIORLING.

I am wearing MPG George Sand today. It's a wonderful, super-earthy patchouli. This was a limited edition--2004, I think--and so it's hard to find. I had to pay a fair bit for the bottle I got, but it was worth it.

This is a worthy limited edition fragrance, and I'm very fortunate to have a sample of it. It's a great cold weather fragrance.

Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterranean EDT clean citrus aromas with a hint of complexity = summer in a bottle. Good seeing its currently 29c and its lasting.

What do you think of Kolnisch Juchten?

Leather isn't one of my favorite genres, but this is definitely among my favorite leathers. The opening strikes me as sort of fatty, smoky, and meaty, like breakfast sausages or something. I don't think I like that a lot. But within ten minutes or so it transitions into something I like better. It becomes a bit powdery and more floral.

SOTE: Gucci Guilty EDT  It's OK........

 

Cheers

Speaking of Gucci, I wore L'Arte di Gucci as my pre-shower scent today. It's a feminine mossy rose chypre from 1991, and it definitely smells like it. (If I didn't know, I'd probably guess it came from the mid to late 1980s.) As with so many '80s and early '90s feminine floral chypres, it's much brighter and "younger" than the classics. There's a world of difference between L'Arte di Gucci and Guerlain Parure, for example, even though both are based on roughly the same idea. (Parure is from 1975).

I get a rich orange-rind note in the first few hours of Kolnisch Juchten.
