Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread - Page 1696
Yeah, it's really great. I got a good deal on a decant, so I went for it. I'm going to keep an eye out for any discounts.
Acca Kappa 1869 EDP.
Barbershop, suede-leathery, a tad heavy on the violet leaf, but not as much as the Masque Milano one that's overwhelmed by the note. A bit boring, but sometimes that's what you want. It will be interesting to see it evolve, I don't think "vanilla, ambergris" is something you want to see as the base notes of a modern scent (it means vanillin, ambroxan...).
D600 by Carner Barcelona this morning.
A vetiver-vanilla-iris that works surprisingly well, despite a slightly too vanilla centric drydown. This one is worth a try for vetiver amateurs, and (so I am told) those who like Dior Homme (/ Intense). The drydown vanilla is much better than usual, or maybe there's little of it and the vetiver does all the work.
The black pepper, bergamot, jasmine and cedar did not make an appearance.
Today: Jul et Mad Amour de Palazzo. Warm spicy, labdanum, animalic goodness. It's a wonderful fall and winter scent, even though it feels more like late summer here in the STL.
I really, really like Cuir Pleine Fleur and think it's a brilliant leather and perfectly unisex. Why is it that a person who likes men and women called bisexual whereas a fragrance that is great for both men and women is unisexual?
Oh, and today I'm wearing Voyage d'Hermes parfum since it is our Summer right now.
Wearing Yohji Homme today. I guess this is a boozy/rum thing? I just got a YSL-Kouros-1985-Duran-Duran-Rio-video olfactory flashback when I put it on.
Kids have a pretty good sense of smell. Also, make sure he gets to choose his own music when he gets older! ;-)
The original (which came in a long, thin bottle like a track baton) was a very licorishy-gourmand. I must admit I wasn't as amazed by it as by the hype that surrounded it... but it was still a nice fragrance. I think I ended up trading my big bottle for some Jicky back in 2005 or 2006.
Why? Where are you located?
Today I am wearing Tam Dao EdT. I now have three vintage bottles of this stuff because I don't ever want to run out.
