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.

 



Why not? I'd say Aramis is at the centre of my "professional" rotation.

Also, Lutens Gris Clair has a strong sort of wet dough aspect to it i guess kindof yeasty


I just got back from an event here in Toronto at the Guerlain store where Thierry Vasser attended and I got to chat a bit with him about the house and scents and materials etc. Sipped some Moet, ate some lobster grilled cheese and sprayed on some smellies (Songe D'Un Bois D'ete). Was good times :-)

Did anyone else notice that Terre d'Hermes disappears quite quickly after putting it on? I don't think I could find EDP so I might have the EDT and maybe that's why. Or, perhaps the sprays disappear more quickly than just putting it on one's skin? When I would just pour a small sample on my skin it seemed to last all day.

Do people generally use the sprays?

This fragrance is very heavy with Iso E Super, which causes olfactory fatigue in many wearers, resulting in you not smelling it but others around still can. Maybe that's your situation.

Tonight I'm wearing Chanel Cuir de Russie extrait.

I'm wearing Egoiste. I've been on a bit of a Bois des Iles/Egoiste kick lately. To me they're so similar as to be indistinguishable from a distance (I suppose Egoiste is a bit stronger) and I love them both.

SOTD is Concentré de pamplemousse rose by Hermès. It is a bit edgy at first and the alcohol content is very present until it dries down. Now about 2 hours in it settles nicely and feels quite sophisticated. Delicately balanced between grapefruit, citrus, rose and something sweet that I cant put my finger on..  I didnt like this on the spray card but it will work nicely as a summer scent together with my bergamote's, neroli's and aquatics. 

 

PS. Im really interested in tauer's fruitchouli in case someone wants to split a bottle.

Today I overcome my detestation of its bottle design and wore Bagiotti Roma Uomo. To me this is a great example of how design can let down a pretty good product; it's fugly, so I don't wear it nearly as much as I would if it came in a nicer bottle design. The scent itself is pleasant balsamic stuff.

Today I'm wearing one of my first loves - Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree.

Today it's Hermes Eau de Merveilles - salty honeyed oranges. more of a textural experience than anything else. Nice and easy to wear but doesn't really quite feel like 'me'.

wearing lebreton's bois lumiere. for me, it sits exactly between the smell of beeswax and the smell of a carpeted bathroom, which is a thing i've unfortunately had to smell before. I had no idea these two smells were so alike. i love the idea of smelling like beeswax, and i'm fascinated, but no thanks.

Yeah, that doesn't make me want to rush out and try it.

Could be.

Where do you spray it?

I usually spray it on my wrists and that's where it seems to disappear quickly - I assume due to sweat / shirt sleeves.

Me too.  I spray my chest/neck area.  It seems to last longer in the heat for me.  I almost reached for it today but instead went with Amouage Jubilation XXV.

Tonight I'm wearing another first love - Tam Dao.
