I recall there being a section of the drydown that reminded me of Oud Fleur from Ford. A sort of funky dry poopy musty floral component. Just a phase of the Paleo, but I remember mentally connecting those two.

Today I'm wearing Rochas Lui. This is one of those discontinued fragrances that everyone bemoans the discontinuation of. Unlike many others, like Dolce & Gabbana's By Man, which I don't get the "masterpiece" description, this is one that I thinks is a masterpiece for sure. It's done in an eau de cologne style but with a twist with the light touch of labdanum and something else. It's done perfectly. Because of that it's not going to knock your socks off when you smell it the first time but instead is going to slowly make you realize how much of a joy it is to smell it again after wearing it time after time.

I wore Seyrig from Bruno Fazzolari yesterday. It's a big aldehydic floral, supposedly inspired by Bonnie & Clyde/Chinatown era Faye Dunaway. It's not normally my style, but I enjoyed it. I'm curious to sample the rest of his line, which I'll do over the next few days.

Yeah, Seyrig is huge and very much reminds me of big 1970s fragrances.

Bruno Fazzolari Five today. This is in the classic EdC style but it has uncommon longevity. It reminds me of two scents I like a lot - Terre d'Hermes and Eau de Guerlain. Like the Hermes, this one has a mineral note, but it's less pronounced in Five than it is in Terre. Like Eau de Guerlain, it's got a potent lemon and herbs component, and also has great longevity, like Eau de Guerlain. All things being equal, I like this one as much as I like any of my summer citrus scents. It's good! Of course, it's kind of expensive compared to the several scents in this style that I already own, but I'm impressed nonetheless.

A more liberal arm application of SP White Ginger Lily today. Still a "jasmine with cereals" opening, as fresh as the bush outside. Morphs rapidly into something more complex.

06130 Cedre today. (Thanks M-C!). When I first sprayed this, I got the tart grapefruit opening, but it soon turned into powdery woods. Not bad, but not exceptional. I'll definitely be wearing this in future.

I found it quite pleasant and enjoyable. Nothing groundbreaking but simple and done well enough. I've got probably 100 retail bottles and 100+ decants, so as I'm winding down the hobby and culling the collection, this one didn't make the cut for me. It made it in originally when I was building, so it's a good enough scent in my opinion, but I figured eh I have so much other stuff at this point and only one or two per day I can wear so unless I love it, pass it along to someone else who can use it.

Today I'm wearing Yohji Homme - just an excellent, relatively dry fougere with licorice taking the role of labdanum. It's excellent and fits my need for a fougere as well as a licorice/anise scent. I have a bottle of Histoires de Parfums 1725, which I find hard to wear because of its sweetness, but I think they are similar but just on different places of the dry-to-sweet scale.

Bois des Iles.

I've told this story before, but I'll tell it again. The very first time I wore this, I thought "meh, this is okay but nothing special." Later that day I was out shopping and I smelled the most beautiful fragrance in the world on someone, but I couldn't figure out who was wearing it. Eventually I realized that it was me. It's been near the top of my favorite fragrances ever since.

SOTD - New Ralph Lauren Supreme Leather

 

Its quite nice, but too sweet for my taste and really lacks leather in top and base notes, can sense some in the dry down but theres alot better leather scents out there. My favourite right now being  Acqua Di Parma - Leather.

I actually quite like their Supreme Oud scent believe it or not. Was just on eBay today scoping out minis

Yeah Ive heard positive things about the oud and thats the reason why I wanted to try the leather. Have you tried Acqua Di Parma's colonia oud?

Today I'm wearing LM Parfums - Ambre Muscadin. It's a warm, dusty and welcoming blend of amber and vanilla. I usually can't stand the latter.

I'm wearing La Curie Incendo again today. I really like this, especially the contrast between the smokey opening and the soft, sweet incense dry down. I wish the longevity were a little better but it's still a very nice scent.
