Nope, but I just got through reading about on Kafkaesque an hour before. Doesn't sound my style at all.

No, I don't think it would be your style at all! I'm not entirely sure it's my style either, TBH, but TF is one of those houses whose new releases I will always try.

Ormond Man today.

Creed Royal Mayfair for me today.  To my nose, it's the best of the very few rose-centric scents any man can comfortably pull off.

Creed Spice and Wood today.  It came highly recommended but to me its just eh.  Not bad by any means, just not really my liking.

I wore Dior Leather Oud yesterday. I bought a largish decant of this a few years ago, and immediately regretted it. I was expecting something very raw and animalistic in the vein of Montale Oud Cuir Arabie, but instead this struck me as more sweet, powdery, brassy. Something about the balance of notes rubbed me the wrong way, I had to wash it off almost immediately. After a few more cautious and failed approaches, I just put it away. I dug it out yesterday and decided to approach it anew, with a fresh perspective. I actually enjoyed it. I still don't love it, but I was able to appreciate it on it's own terms. And it does have that raw, animalistic side - it's just more refined that some of the real beasts out here, like the Montale, or Lonestar Memories. There's a civilized facade above the raw notes. I'm going to wear this a few more days this week and get to know it a little better.

TF Arabian Wood today. Anyone who doesn't like this has got errors in their Odor Processing Mechanism. It is a fact of science.

Tilda Swinton. Like this.

I've got one of those cool miniatures of Leather Oud and revisit it from time to time as well. You're right about it being sweet. To me, it's sickly-sweet, deathlike, and cloyingly rotten from the overdose of civet.

CB Where We Are There Is No Here. This is a highly synthetic concoction. I suppose it's OK as a scent, but it doesn't go the distance on me.

I found an old sample of Gucci Guilty Pour Homme EDT...

 

Unless someone tells me it is awful, I plan to wear it tonight.

 

Cheers,

I am wearing Bijou Romantique. It's a very pleasant chocolatey iris and vetiver type scent.

PSA: Probably most of you have seen this, but STC is having a huge sale on some of their fragrances, including all the Chanels. Code is SAVE45. Good from now until 11:59 PM January 24.

SOTE is Rive Gauche--the feminine version. It is a lovely bright aldehydic floral.

Juniper Sling today. I guess this is one of the lesser lights in their lineup, with 1870, Sartoriale, Blenheim and Endymion hogging the limelight, but I really like this one for a warm day. It has a wonderful crisp opening, but it does fade a fair bit as the day wears on.

EnsarOud Royal Kinam, a perfect oud oil for the days when a sparkly, crystalline, transparent kyara-like woodiness is just what the doctor ordered :)
