Unless you have the bottles labeled, I think you have the Heeley and Knize mixed up. Well, even if you do have it labeled, they were probably mislabeled.

Well, if it's truly the original, it's close to 100 years old and might have gone off; if it isn't, I heard later reformulations could get pretty cheap...

SOTE Yohji Homme. Liquorice and lavender, a perfect combination. Perfect is the word: this is exactly what I've been looking for as an office scent all this time. In theory there's also leather but I think my nose is leathered out from today's earlier wears.

Tabac EdC splash today, very liberally applied. Soapy leather and I'm feeling like a man baby!

CRDB I'm not sure I understand. Could you please explain?

Well, Pricentile right now is bog standard price comparison. I thought it would be useful to add a "site quality" angle. So, we're going to make a few orders from each of the sites we list, and check how the process goes (and maybe test customer service, etc.) and put the reviews on Pricentile. It's hard to find unbiased site reviews on the web, and I've seen a lot of forum questions along the lines of "can I trust StrawberryNet?".

 

The problem is if we list hundreds of sites, we have hundreds of orders. And the stuff has to go somewhere. My wife and friends will definitely get a few bottles, but I'm suggesting SF members could make some of the orders on our tab, and keep the bottles. 

 

Now is a good time to suggest sites we don't list to be added :P

That sounds promising. I have this on my trial list. Is your review for the current (2012+) or original (pre P&G) edition?

This one: http://theperfumedcourt.com/products/yohji-yamamoto-yohji-homme__yohjiyamamotoyohjihommepg.aspx - no details on the year. 

 

It got a bit sourer with time, maybe the gourmand notes surfacing as lavender slowly evaporates. Still, it's the kind of understated fragrance that works with you as opposed to on you. 

 

Diaghilev is still there, in its spicy drydown, but with a bit more cooked fruit.

Cheers. The use of 'Yamamoto' probably indicates the current edition. Or not using 'vintage', whatever.

Interesting. Mind expanding on how to recognize the various vintages and which ones are good? I really like this and might get myself a bottle.

Not an expert, really just guessing from the intro on BN.

YSL M7 today one of my all time favorites because if it's Vetiver roots.

"Designed by Tom Ford M7 is a heavy, rich, intensive and masculine fragrance, dominated by dark, warm and dry precious woody notes with an accord of raw materials and a heavy, natural, earth-like note originating from vetiver. The formula of this perfume encompasses assorted trees and raw, odorous plants. The composition begins with elegant citrus notes of Italian bergamot, Sicilian mandarin and rosemary from Southern France. The warm heart contains one of the most expensive components—Agarwood, followed by vetiver. The perfume closes with a soft ambergris trail and musky notes." Fragrantica

TF Black Violet for me today. It's been a long time since I've worn this, largely because it was one of my least favorite of the PBs. (It's discontinued now.) But I'm appreciating it more this time. It's a dark violet, as the name suggests, but it's also got some very pleasant dried fruit notes. There are some brighter citruses, but they stay in the background for the most part. With some distance, I'm able to perceive the aesthetic that this, Japon Noir, and Bois Rouge have in common.

Testing out vintage Equipage today.

 

It's not mixing super well with a new "body cream" I'm trying out as an aftershave, something in a purple bottle I picked up at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo called "Harnn Oriental Herbs" which is mostly hesperides but not as pleasant and fresh as l'Occitane Citrus Verbena or whatever it's called. I should have stuck to l'Occitane.

Tonight I'm wearing Diptyque Eau de Lavande.

Perhaps it was lemon grass?
