Today I am wearing L'Occitane Cade aftershave. I'm going to Tiger Lily perfumery today in hopes that they have Tauer Au Coeur du Desert.

Today it was Jicky edt. I have the parfum as well but wanted to try the edt out to test if I was going to keep it. I'll check the parfum to compare soon. Both nice and I remember the edt being a little more open and easier to wear. Got a 30ml decant so I'm not sure it's even worth selling anyway.

SOTD: Orchid Soleil.
SOTE: Parfum de Therèse. If the rich, overripe melon opening of this persisted, I would like this much more than I do. It begins in a way that's instantly recognizable as an Edmond Roudnitska scent, but then it develops into something predominately green. I haven't seen many people online describe it that way, but that's what I get.

Today I wore Le Labo Thé Noir 29. I'm considering a bottle of it.

MFK APOM today. Cloaked in visible cloud of a heady but not too heavy mix of good stuff. Musk, cedar, a little honey vanilla vibe but I get no orange blossom, at all. For me this is more of a F/W scent.

Prior days Borneo 1834 (the rectangular tall spray bottle, thanks to MC). This one is funny on me. No matter how much I spray it soon retreats, blends in. I know it's there but it isn't obvious. Opening is dry cacao powder, almost coffee-ish and something herbal, then it changes into something woody, musky, dry skin scent. This might be "my original perfect enhancement scent" somehow, meaning it smells like an enhanced version of me, if that makes sense.

Dzongkha today for a cool, dry, crisp Thursday.

Interesting; I also get a lot of vetiver in the base which I guess could give the "green" touch. To me, though, the cedar comes up to my nose more than the green. I agree I'd like more of the stinky melon. This was one thing that made DIOR DIOR (long discontinued) so interesting. Therese is probably the closest thing to it, but it was more of a cross between this and Diorella, with the persistent fruit note.

Today I'm wearing Russian Tea.

Ha, sprayed some Russian Tea on my gf yesterday and I went with Jicky. Could smell it all day on her. Lovely stuff!

Fruitchouli Flash is my SOTD. It's a dusty, dried, candied fruit scent with a big dose of sharp patchouli. I like it okay, but it's really not my style. It is a big compliment getter though. It has good longevity and sillage.

You spray each other! Kinky.

Stilettos on Lex by Jul et Mad. It's one of my very favorites. It opens with pear and violet leaf, but it's also lightly musky from the get-go. Eventually a sweeter and every so slightly bitter facet emerges, I think owing to the vanilla and the heliotrope. It's quite powdery too. I imagine it might be too feminine for a lot of you, but it really is fantastic.

L'Inc, any recommendations for powdery scents? I'm finding I like the ones that err on the verge of being feminine. I guess unisex is a good way to put it.

Here are some that occur to me off the top of my head in addition to Stilettos on Lex, which I'd also definitely recommend.

Shalimar (Guerlain). This is one of those scents that seems absolutely impossible to dislike. It's a classic for good reason.
Tom Ford Noir. I'm not a big fan of this myself, but it's both powdery and quite masculine.
True Lust Rayon Violet de Ses Yeux (Etat Libre d'Orange). This is among my very favorites. It's a powdery violet that's somewhat reminiscent of old-fashioned makeup.
Misia by Chanel. Also a violet old-fashioned makeup scent. It's still pretty new. It's been well received in the fragrance community, although again I'm not a big fan myself.
Louve by Serge Lutens. This is super powdery, with a prominent amaretto vibe.
Amouage Gold Man. It's a rich, opulent masculine floral with a pretty strong animalic aspect (civet).

Awesome. I've heard so much about Shalimar and the one by Serge Lutens. Didn't know Amouage made any powdery scents (still rocking dat Jubilation XXV).

Looks like someone's gonna be ordering some sample scents this weekend icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Thanks!
