(yesterday) Put on some Boise 1920 Sushi Imperial since it's a bottle I'm debating culling from the collection. As usual, it was pleasant but I didn't connect emotionally with it, so it'll probably go.
Went fragrance sniffing while killing some time and put on one hand some Neroli Porfotino Forte, which was quite good and I can still smell this morning from yesterday afternoon.
On my other hand I put on Diptyque's Oud somethingorother scent which I've now tested several times and as many ouds as I own and are out there, I still really like this one. Though there was a bit of a TF Oud Fleur musty powdery floral stage in there. I think I'll go buy one of those 10ml bottles they have as delux samples or whatever.
And then at the Malle counter they had a bottle of Monsieur, which I was expecting to be some sort of classic fresh herbal citrus wood thing but ended up being a total patchouli scent. I liked it quite quickly but it's just one wearing so I really have to get to know this one better. First impressions were good though. Before knowing anything about it, my first sense was purple, rubber/leather, a sharp sweetness, petroleum/oil, etc. Then they told me it was patch and I was like ah, yeah that all makes sense.
In a related note, Heeley's Esprit de Tigre is such an odd little scent but I think I really like it. No idea why but there's just something about it that I keep thinking about. Any fans here?
