Have you tried Royal Oud by Creed? Probably one of the best woody / musky scents out there, together with Bois de Portugal, also from Creed.

It's an odd one from the house and without its name I wouldn't necessarily be able to trace the lineage. That being said... if one likes L'instant PH, I think would be a hit as well. It's got that similarly odd balance of soft and sweet, but also woody/resinous with some citrus. However, each is really well balanced/blended, so it moves back and forth within these different families without any one part being discernible.

It's one that also works well for meetings/business; I keep a bottle around when I want to be loyal to Guerlain, but don't want to overpower with a real stinkfest (my coworkers, students, and even my TA absolutely HATE Jicky.) haha

Has anyone tried Habit Rouge Dress Code? It sounds like something I'd like.

No, I haven't even though it's very popular. The whole praline note sounds unappealing.

Not yet, but I'll try to track down a sample. Thanks for the tip!

That's one of my favourites. I agree that it does not smell like a typical Guerlain, but it is one of my favourite summer scents.

Today's Guerlain was L'heure Bleue EDP. TBH I hardly ever wear this - this might be the first time. It opens quite powdery, probably more than I'd like. I got the iris, which I do like, but it soon goes floral in a big way and stays that way. This is just too femme and too strong for the office, which is where I need to be able to wear all my fragrances. So this is not for me.

I was a little indecisive this morning, I was torn between Rance 1795 Le Vainqueur or Creed Aventus. I went with Creed eventually just because of it's staying power, never let's me down.

 

I have been hankering after Creed Green Irish Tweed but the old ball and chain is not keen, I guess I'll have to sneak it in somehow!!

I love L'h B, but see your point. While I find Mitsouko or Shalimar very unisex, definitely L'h B tends to be much softer and in the more feminine territory.

Vol de Nuit EdT today; a true gem. Quiet, cool, and "airy," a scent that definitely is named appropriately.

Since it is finally summer here in San Francisco, I put on some Dior Granville.

Been wearing CdG Black a lot lately even though it's summer. i love it, and to a fair extent it serves as weird deodorant, especially since it lasts all day on me.

I bought a sample pack from Cult of Scent based on Luca Turin's recent review on his blog. It arrived in lovely packaging, with a nice hand-written note.

Yesterday I wore In the Woods. Turin described it as a new take on a classic Eau de Cologne. I didn't seem particularly 'novel' to me, but it was nice example of the style, with a dry woody note in the drydown (Turin called it incense but I didn't get that) and better longevity than I expected.

Today I'm wearing Something Beautiful, which was Turin's favorite. It's in the mold of classic feminine scents - the main accord, according to the notes, is orange blossom, neroli and tonka - very powdery. Not really my style, though I like it well enough. It's very hot here, and most of the scent has disappeared after a couple hours, but I'm sweating and didn't apply very much. I'll have to sample it again to get a better idea of this one.

I just looked that up. May I ask how much you paid in shipping? I was going to get the sample pack and the fig candle and the shipping was $40.
post #25213 of 25684
They didn't charge me anything for shipping - the total cost was around $27.
post #25214 of 25684
Shipping is free for the sample pack. Dump the candle & it should zero out the shipping.
