But think about how you have the chance to smell it right now.

I ordered a sample of Lonesome Rider. I almost went for a bottle but he says right there on the blog he recommends against blind buying. I should get the sample in plenty of time to take advantage of the special offer before it's gone.

Around 2005 or so, this was probably the fragrance I wore more than any other. At this point, I'd certainly say I enjoy it, but it's not among my very favorites. I've just tried so many things in the meantime that are more my style.

Today I wore Japon Noir which, along with Moss Breches, is probably the most underrated TF PB. Both were from the original set. I remember I was in Cincinnati, where they had a trunk show for the PB perfumes, which were quite new at the time. One of the ones I got to smell was Japon Noir, and right away I thought it was one of the most amazing things I'd ever smelled. (I smelled Amber Absolute at the same trunk show and was bowled over by it.)

I'm wearing MdO Vetyver today. I've reviewed this before; it really is a good example of this style, with good legs.

Yesterday I wore Miller Harris Terre de Bois. This was a blind buy at a sale, mainly because it was ridiculously cheap - $10 for an unopened FB. I haven't tried MH before, but I liked this one as a green scent, although it dries down powdery, with what is supposed to be a fairy floss note. I'm not too keen on that aspect.

Today I am wearing Portrait of a Lady.

Yesterday and today I wore Mysore sandalwood oil, since it's been very warm here and I wanted that smell to radiate through my shirt.

Eau de Gentiane Blanche today. This is one I don't wear much, but it's a nice alternative to Orange Verte. Much more floral than citrus, with a bit of pepper and a powdery iris dry-down. Lasts pretty well compared to the usual Hermes EdCs.

Bois des Iles, One of the finest fragrances of all time in my opinion.

I'm wearing M/Mink as SOTE. I'm not a big fan of this, but it is definitely an interesting and unusual perfume. I thought to wear it because there was a review of it on (which is my new favorite perfume website. I don't know if any of you guys read French, but if so you should check it out.) Interestingly, one of the commenters thought that Lutens L'Orpheline was similar. That's exactly what I noticed when I first tried L'Orpheline.

I just got a bottle of YSL M7 circa 2008.  I want to swim in this stuff.  That is all.

Olfactive Studios Panorama. I just-OK green fragrance that doesn't stick around. Underwhelmed by this lie so far.

Maybe L'Orpheline uses some adoxal? There's a ton of it in M/M Ink

Today I'm wearing Maison Francis Kazakhstan (or whatever the hell his last name is) Aqua Vitae - very fresh and green.

I am wearing a fragrance called Sunshine. It is made by Amouage, a company that makes fragrances for a living.

Anyone ever love a sample, only to find that the full bottle disappoints? Years ago, this happened to me with Bois du Portugal, and more recently with a bottle of Italian Cypress. Not sure if I got bottles from a bad batch, or what.
