Russian Tea is one of my favorite recent releases. & what I'm wearing today.

I've been away for a week clearing out a house readying it for sale, in 30 degree heat. Not fun. While I was away I wore two vintage fragrances. The first was Hermes Eau de Cologne, which was later rebadged as Eau d'Orange Vert. This has held up well and it is very bit as good as the EdOV bottle that I also have. It would be nice if it held up longer, but that's an unreasonable ask in the Mallee summer heat.

The other one I took is called Christy Eau de Cologne. This is a vintage FB from the Art Deco era that I found in an antique shop. I think it must be Australian, and I can find no record of it anywhere, other than a photo of an ad for it. I find it hard to pick out individual notes with nothing to go on, but I would say that this is more a light woods type EdC than a citrusy one. It has pretty good sillage for something so old; people noticed it on me. The opening was a bit bitter, which I suspect might have been some herbs, and I think I smelled vetiver in there somewhere as well. In this case it's impossible to say if this is what it was supposed to smell like, or if it has deteriorated and the florals and citruses have disappeared over the years.

Les Nuits d'Hadrien today. Can't smell much of anything really; probably the heat.

Today is Costa Azzura. I think I've said before that, at TF prices, I'd like to be able to smell what I'm wearing.

Idole de Lubin today. This sits on the back of my shelf, and every time I wear it I wonder why it's been so long.

Bois de violette today; because I thought I smelt the perfume on someone yesterday and it brought it to mind

was walking through a shop killing time so naturally I found myself at the Guerlain counter and doused myself with Habit Rouge

Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme today, my first spray of a blind buy. Pretty good barbershop style scent. Amid a kaleidoscope of claimed notes, I mostly get patchouli, leather and rose. It's projection and longevity are both good; I may indeed have over-sprayed with just 3 squirts.

Yeah, it's a strong one, but I like it.

While the weather is cold I again am wearing Chergui.  It is addicting.

So, I blind-bought a bottle of Annick Goutal Vetiver, which quickly dries down to a powerful salt note. I don't think I like it.

Silver Mountain Water today. I read somewhere that this was David Bowie's signature scent, so I thought I'd wear it in memoriam, so to speak.

I am wearing a sample of TF Oud oud today.  I've discovered I like it.  Damn you Tom Ford!

I'm wearing this as well because it's a good cold weather fragrance for me.
