Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread - Page 1628
Still not sold on if I can wear this bad boy at 30 but we'll see. My gf who's come to like some of my weirder stuff like oud, musk, incense etc still thinks I smell like a public toilet and her father 20 years ago.
My SOTD is The Night by Frederic Malle. There are a million rose / oud accords on the market, but this one really stands out from the pack. The rose really shines through later in the drydown, and it's one of the most beautiful rose notes I've encountered.
Projection is modest but it lasted around 6 hours on me. The dry down was better, with the warm, dusty tobacco lingering and with most of the sickly fruit notes having dropped off.
Sprayed on YSL M7, from a twelve ingredients vintage bottle.
Opening is mostly citrussy with a hint of amber. A bit later it's becoming somewhat medicinal, like a spicy Wick Vaporub. Dry down is as advertised pleasantly musky and woody, ever so slightly sweetish vanilla(?).
I liked M7. I bought a sample and wore it for a couple of days and I liked it but it didn't make it to my favorites. Still good stuff, though.
It figures that this is one of my favorites as it's so expensive!
Just ordered a split of Cedrat Boise from there... I'll definitely check there more often.
I tried Sultan Pasha's Nankun Kōdō last night after reading Kafka's beaming review. Unfortunately I really couldn't get into this. As soon as it hit my skin I was assaulted by something intensely salty and unpleasant. The closest analogue is pinetarsol - a briny, tarry liquid used to treat chickenpox. I quickly scrubbed it off.
