I will definitely give it some more tries. I applied pretty conservatively today; I suspect I might like it better with a more generous application.

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.

Floris Cefiro today. Pretty undistinguished cologne, with only fleeting longevity. Still, we are getting gale force winds; maybe it got blown away.

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...).

Took my boy to Golden Gate Park today and wore Comme des Garcons Harissa.

Cuir Plein Fleurs today. This is one of my safe options, when I don't want to think too much about it. Mildly leather, mildly floral, lasts well. Not brilliant, but does the job as an office scent.

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.

Yesterday: TF Vert des Bois. This reminded me very strongly of something I used to wear a long time ago. I think it might be Charvet Cuvee Speciale, but it's been so long that I can't be sure. It's a sharply green scent, as the name suggests, but it's also richly sweet, especially as it dries down. I think this is my favorite of the new Vert series. I'll be honest though, I don't really enjoy of any of them. That's mainly because I'm just not a big fan of green notes.

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? puzzled.gif

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! ;-)

^Blast from the past. Haven't had Yohji Homme in years (the original Patou one)...

I did L'heure Bleue today and even those who hate my usual old-lady stinkers found this one lovely. And rightly so.

I have the remake which came out a couple years ago, so not sure how it compares to the orig. I like it, but it seems So 80s! to me. Totally listening to DD and Spandau Ballet today.

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. wink.gif

Dzing sounds very interesting and after a quick google it peaked my curiosity enough to order a sample, sadly I couldn’t find a local store and as such I have had to import it with shipping double the cost of the actual product! Oh dear oh dear!

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.
