This was my other option for today. My bottles of Habit Rouge and Aventus were right next to each other.

I think you have to be a certain age to "get" GIT. At least that's the way it was for me. I thought it was boring in my late 20s and early 30s. Then I connected with it a year or so ago and never want to be without it in my fragrance wardrobe. If I could only wear two scents for the rest of my life, I would choose GIT and Italian Cypress.

Today I'm wearing Tabacco Toscano.

Trust me, I'm of that age. I understand it. I just don't find it to be compelling or engaging.

I am wearing Tobacco Vanille today. I was running late and then I left my home without having applied a SOTD. At that point I had a decision to make. Yes I went back into my condo and applied my TV.

Been away over the long weekend here, travelling in some pretty hot weather, and continuing with the working bee up at the orchard.

Satruday: L'Etrog Acqua. This seems to have bad rep, but I quite like its full-on citrus opening, especially on hot days.

On Saturday I found one of those Penhaligon's travel sets on sale, so I spent the rest of the weekend in Penhaligon's.

Sunday: Quercus. Not tried this one before; probably not that great; I doubt I'll go full bottle, even though I can get it 20% off.
Monday: Blenheim Bouquet. I have a sample of this and have worn it quite a few times. My wife doesn't like this, finding it too strong, but I'm starting to warm to its lemon pepper scent.
Tuesday: Orange Blossom. The sampler has male and female scents, so I thought I'd give this a spin. I don't find this too girly at all, and it still has detectable orange on my wrist 12 hours after daubing it on. Certainly wear this one again.

Today I'm wearing Jubilation XXV.

Today I'm wearing Slumberhouse Kiste. This is a darling in the fragrance community, but way too sweet for my tastes. It smells like something you would find at Yankee Candle.

I am one day behind @HORNS so I am wearing Habit Rouge today.  Maybe tomorrow will be Jubilation XXV.

Disgusting.

Une Fleur de Chanel. I purchased a bottle of this blind because, as happens to me sometimes, I got obsessed with this rare, discontinued scent. (I believe it was on the market for only a year. That's very strange.) Unfortunately, it's just okay. It's a sharp green (at the top) white floral. It definitely gets better as it dries down, but at no point do I love it.

YSL Jazz. Of all my FBs, this is the closest to empty. I'm determined to finish it before I die, so I can claim to have finished at least one bottle in my collection.

Jo Malone Blue Avaga & Cacao, enjoy the cacao and floral top note but the sweet base note really killed it for me. Luckily it was just sampling.

I wore ELDO The Afternoon of a Faun today. This has been one of my favorites since the first time I tried it.

Allure Homme Sport. Another FB that is getting close to the bottom; I should definitely wear this more often in the heat. I don't go hugely for marine scents, but I find this one quite OK, with it's citrus notes. With Lanvin Sport, this is about the only "Sport" flanker that I wear on any regular basis.

Today I'm wearing Oud Palao.
