I got out Pardon today. This one is heavy on the oud and has quite a deal of projection. Much more intrusive than most of the scents that I wear, but in a good way.

Diptyque Eau Rose today. I am wearing a pink striped shirt (stripes are pink and lighter pink) that also has a floral pattern. So I thought Eau Rose would be a good complement.

You are brave...  :<)  I love wearing pink stripes myself and almost always get comments at my golf club.

 

Cheers,

Can anyone recommend something similar to Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino? It is so good, but so overpriced...

^ hey hey hey... message me about a split! I've got 50-60ml portions of it available for like half the retail price.

Picked up Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather just before leaving the EU. Sweet, sweet duty-free goodness. I had no idea it's so overpriced in the US.

 

Anyway...wow. I normally do not like leather scents as they are often "sharp" to the nose. Acrid, perhaps. This is the first leather scent I really love. It's smoother, more rounded. The leather seems to verge on a woodiness, or perhaps an earthiness, that grounds it very comfortably but with distinct refinement. Lasts a long time and projects well without being overwhelming.

 

And it works great in summer!

Monsieur by Frederic Malle - this is a scent for me. 

So my rotation is starting to take form and look like this, no samples included:

 

Monsieur

Aventus 

Oud Palao

Acqua Di Parma leather

Amouage Silver Man

 

For some strange reason none of my TF's actually makes it on this list... Tuscan leather, Neroli Portofino, Venetian Bergamot or Tobacco Vanille.. or any of my other summer/citrus scents.. 

 

Im still looking for that gourmand.. I really like the ex nihilo - oud vendome which feels a bit gourmand-ish and my favourite which I dont own a bottle or decant of yet: Etat libre d'orange - divin'enfant.

Today I'm wearing Le Labo Patchouli 24. Such an amazing fragrance with heavy duty leather, but it also has this very strong component that is almost gourmand to me. Specifically, when I sprayed it in this morning I got this powerful image of the crusty, caramelized edges of a custard dessert, like a bread pudding.

I am wearing Diptyque L'Autre today. I realize that I am in a tiny minority of the world's population, but I love this one.

I have yet to try any Le Labo I think. Maybe Ive just been unlucky with the places Ive visited. If I happen to stumble across a place that has le labo, what are the signature scents I should pay attention to?

This is a line that I'm a big fan of all around.

People in general love Rose 31 and Santal 33 which I don't own. I have Patchouli 24, Oud 27, and Iris 39. Sometime soon I want to get The Noir 29. None of them, with one or two exceptions, smell like what the name implies.
