Yesterday: Dior Leather Oud. Who else but Baron would find this one to be just too darn refined?
Today: Rose Nacrée du Desert. One of my favorite oud/rose accords. It's very earthy and dark, especially at the top.
Last night used a (generous) sample of Silver Mountain Water for Mrs GF birthday dinner in Newtown. Interesting but I've found Creed has no real lasting power or maybe it was the 80% humidity that stopped it.
Today/this morning I wore Chanel's 31 Rue Cambon - this is a beautiful perfume with ylang ylang and labdanum. There's something lingering into the drydown that keeps it bright. Maybe rose?
This evening I'm wearing Papillon's Salome - I never thought I'd find a modern fragrance that is an analogue of my vintage bottle of Chanel Cuir de Russie, but this has to be it. This alone is testimony of how fantastic a fragrance this is.
It turns out today was the one day per year when I root around in the back of my scent shelf and think "Green Irish Tweed? I haven't worn that in a while." It turns out it's also the one day per year when I think "Really? Did I ever think this was any good?"
Today I'm wearing Habit Rouge EdT. This fragrance has been around for fifty years now (1965) and there's really nothing out there like it even to this day. Except for the flankers, of course, like Dress Code that was released in 2015, but I've never tried it and have no interest in it since it is supposed to have a "praline" component. Fucking barf.
