I've never tried any of the Slumberhouse fragrances - they just don't sound appealing to me due to their reputation of being dense and syrupy. I mean, well, I own and love some fragrances that seem to contradict that sentiment, but considering that I don't have direct access to this line I just never have been motivated to acquire samples.

Today I'm wearing Amouage Jubilation XXV for men.

Yeah, so I discovered. It has amazing longevity, though--it lingered at least 13 hours or so. However, I agree that it is rather powerful and too heavy for summer. It's March 22 but here in NYC it's still in the 50s (F). I would love to try more of Amouage's fragrances, if anyone wants to recommend something that works in spring/summer. 

 

Awaiting the bottle of Caron L'Anarchiste I purchased (wearing the last of the sample vial today).

 

Roja Dove's Fetish and Guerlain's Mitsouko arrived yesterday--sample vials. Will try them.

Bois d'Ascese has a weird vinegary note at the top on my skin. In the same genre, I prefer Sonoma Scent Studio Fireside Intense.

Slumberhouse is the fragrance house for those who find Amouage too subtle and understated. Jeke is one of the better ones from the house I've sampled, but not my cup of tea. Sample before you buy,

The scent you're looking for is Reflection Man.

Puredistance Black. It's a very dense, dark spicy scent. It's been a long time since I've worn this, and for some reason I enjoyed it more today than I have in the past.

Sotd was Dior Eau Sauvage

I would say here that of the Amouages' I have tried Lyric Man and Beloved Man would probably fit in here.  If you are a fan of wood Beloved Man would fit in nicely.  Might be a little heavy for some in the spring summer category.  Lyric Man is a little lighter, more floral.

 

My list of Amouages I have tried (need to try so many more)  Jubilation XXV > Memoir > Beloved > Interlude > Lyric      Need to try Fate, Reflection, Epic, and Lyric woman

Fate Man is absolutely fantastic, but it's definitely not for everyone. I'll be curious to hear what you think once you try it.

Jaipur Homme today.. Like this one as a creamy oriental, very good for office wear.

Roja Dove - Enigma for me today

Silver Mountain Water - Creed
200+ Samples to go through, so not wearing my staples.

Thank you. I've ordered Lyric and Memoir samples.

 

Wearing Guerlain's Mitsouko today. Definitely a feminine opening, but after three hours it's more interesting and ambiguous.

SotD is Dior's Eau Sauvage Parfum - I'm getting sweet pine (immortelle?), liquorice, lemon, etc. It reminds me of Eau Noir but I seem to be the only one who makes that comparison. I'm wearing a forest green henley and sandy yellow/brown corduroy pants so it feels like exactly what I look like.

Actually got a chance to smell Wonderoud by CDG yesterday which I liked a lot and am contemplating buying, but the SA said that since it's a 100ml bottle I wouldn't be able to use it all up before the quality and smell of it degraded.

Wondering if anyone else has any input on whether this is true or if it can be avoided as long as it's stored properly?

(which I also would appreciate pointers on, only thing I know is that you should avoid exposing it to sunlight)

Tried Wonderwood and Amazingreen as well, liked both but atleast Wonderwood I felt would be a bit much for everyday use.

Unless there's something specific about Wonderoud that makes it peculiarly unstable, this is not true. I have several scents that are more than 10 years old (and I've bought vintage scents from the 60's and 70's) and they're all fine. Store them in a dark cabinet or closet and avoid excessive heat and they'll be fine.

Plum Japonais. I think this is my favorite in the warm spicy plum sub-genre.
