MdO Oudh today (now Oudh Osmanthus). Very refined oudh, and the osmanthis is an interesting touch, with a sort of tart apricoty note.

Aventus today, but didnt get all the oud off from yesterday evening so it has an interesting touch to it.. I really like aventus but the longevity is always such a disappointment..

Asking around if some can recommend something similar to Etat d'libre orange divin'enfant. Im getting really fond of it and have tried it on twice now, unfortunately the shop doesnt have any samples of it. I recall some amouage, tom fords - any other nice soft gourmands?

The only thing I've smelled that is in the ballpark of Divin'Enfant is Love by Kilian. Both have an orange blossom and marshmallow sweetness. It's been a while since I've smelled Divin'Enfant, but my memory is that Love is even sweeter.

I'm wearing Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche. It's creamy lemon and vetiver. I used to love this and so I bought a whole bottle, but now I just find it okay. Vetiver is a note that often doesn't agree with me.

amber absolute tonight. i prefer the stephane humbert lucas version...it is a little less spicy and a little more caramel-sweet.

Today I'm wearing Etat Libre d'Orange's Tom of Finland - I really liked this one at first and ended up buying a 50 mL bottle but now find it pretty cloying.

I've been a big fan of Tom of Finland since I first tried it. I still enjoy it a lot.

My SOTE is Oud 27. As with many Le Labo scents, the name is very misleading. What stands out most to me are somewhat bitter incense and patchouli notes. The very top reminds me of a brewery. (I live in St. Louis, where they brew Budweiser. When you drive by the brewery, it smells a bit like Oud 27.)

SOTD Geranium pour monsieur by Malle, really love the mint top notes! Almost saddening when it dries down

Same here.

Went old school today, with Aramis. This packs a degree of projection missing from almost all my modern fragrances. I guess it's not really an office scent, but I enjoyed wearing it for a change.

Today I'm wearing Amouage Memoir Man. Such a fantastic dark scent.

Really?  Like yeasty?  I live by Miller Brewery and when the wind is right I can smell the brewing.  I love that smell. (Also kinda like baking bread)

I'm not sure if I've just got a really idiosyncratic perception of this one, but yes.

It's less yeasty (as in the smell of toasted bread) and more malty, but it definitely has a brewery smell.

Im wearing TF oud wood today (ironically) and I could see how a oud could stray into that malty yeasty smell. Ill have to try the Labo.

I wore Remarkable People today. It's a tangy, champagney scent with a prominent cardamom note too. It's a little bit reminiscent of YSL Yvresse (originally called Champagne; they had to change the name for legal reasons I think).
