SOTD: CdG Wonderoud. Really love the CdG wonderoud and wonderwood, also black and cdg 2 man are great! Really good value stuff imo.

Dreary, rainy day in DC, so I wanted to wear Memoir Man. Alas, I discovered my sample had run out. So I went with Narciso Rodriguez for Men, which smells to me like a melancholy version of GIT.

EdP or EdT can turn really funny, even on fingers only. And one definitely doesn't want to have (and waste) a healthy dash of parfum on your hands. EdC though, in its much lighter concentration, I suppose it depends (see 4711 - Echt Koelnisch Wasser).

Now, there is eau de cologne the formula/style and there's eau de cologne the concentration. What I've been referring to is the style that is like Koelnisch Wasser, but Koelnisch Wasser happens to be in the EdC concentration as well.

Today I'm wearing Granville by Christian Dior - one of the best fragrances with a saline note.

Just left for a 3 week trip to Cape Town and in my hasty packing simply forgot to bring any fragrances. It's almost a little weird that it slipped my mind. Was running around grabbing everything I could think of to pack and somehow totally skipped the fragrance cabinet.

At DF on the way over I tried a few things. Varvatos has an Oud, go figure. It's decent to meh but nothing exciting. Believe it or not I've tested out Polo's Supreme Oud scent a few times and actually find it pretty darn decent. I like the stuff! Seriously, give it a sniff. Also tried Versace's Oud and was gone before I left the store even with 4-5 sprays.

I've used about a half a spray on days I know I'll be in close contact with others.  It is quite powerful

 

This the EDC, EDT or EDP? I have the vintage EDC.

I believe I have the edt.  It lasts for days.

Some I chose based on kafka's reviews, the others simply from the notes listed

If you like saline you might enjoy AbdesSalaam Attar's Legno di Nave / Seawood, it smells exactly like dried seawater on wood

Pre-shower: Mazzolari Bergamotto Mediterraneo. It's definitely got a nicely rendered bergamot note, but it also features a floral heart. It's orange blossom that's most prominent to me. It's well done, but I don't particularly enjoy it. I feel that way about all the Mazzolari fragrances I've tried, which in all fairness isn't that many.

SOTD: TF Rive d'Ambre. I enjoy this one a lot. Wonderfully sharp bergamot at the top, but it dries down to a light amber. Longevity is much better than you'd expect for a fragrance of this type.

Tom Ford Noir Extreme a melange of spices, sandalwood and vanilla? Something else in there as well. Perfect for grey over cast day.

Alameda? You must be near where I used to live, in Lafayette, CA.

Now we are definitely into the cold weather. I don't think we'll be seeing a high-20s day for months. So now is my chance to get back into the cool weather fragrances, the olfactory equivalent of comfort food. Yesterday was Frapin 1697, which I find a warm, enveloping and boozy. today was YSL Jazz. Not so warm, but a nice woodsy scent for a cool, sunny day. If I keep using Jazz regularly, it may just end up being the first full bottle I ever empty.

What is a saline note?

Sounds intriguing. "salty" scents are hard to find. I'll edit/update later with one that I had years ago that smelled like a New England beach, complete with dead seagulls and detritus from the Garbage Scows. I can't remember it off hand; I traded it, as far as I can recall.

It's cold and snowy in the Midwest today, alas, so nothing smells very good. When that happens, I just do CoSTUME NATIONAL SCENT because it's nice, weird, big, and loud. And lasts for days.

Oh, hello there, rach! Yeah, by "saline" I mean salty - the smell one gets when they stick their nose into a jar of Brittany sea salt. Clean and minerally.
