Today I'm wearing Alt Innsbruck aftershave. Man, this is some good, inexpensive stuff. The mint is bracing on the skin and is a foil for the tobacco flower used here.

Radio Bombay by D.S. & Durga. Those of you who enjoy sandalwood should really give this a try. It opens up with a warm, creamy sandalwood that's complemented by a green note that I thought was cypress, but which is apparently balsam fir. But the best part appears a few minutes into the drydown. There's a metallic note that smells a little bit like a cold penny. This note never dominates the scent, but it adds just enough to make the scent stand out from the crowd of sandalwoods.

Today: Costes EdT

 

Got a sample of this and the Costes 2 on @Baron 's recommendation. It's definitely in my wheelhouse. I love pepper and rose, but I think I prefer Van Cleef Cologne Noire in that vein. This is a tad soapy? or something. I still like it though. 

 

 

 

Yesterday: Encre Noir

Working at a new office. Yesterday was Blenheim Bouquet (beige linen sportscoat, white ocbd, mid grey wool trousers) and today was Prada Amber Intense (dark grey sportscoat, light grey shirt, black pants). The colors seemed to fit the scents.

Costes is one that I've always wanted to try. I love the color of the glass they use for the bottle as well as the classic stoppered top.

I heard being a father takes up a lot of time but damn, we were all hanging out here at the bar and you went to take a leak and then just never came back lol. Stick around :-)

LOL, well, a lot has changed, and the changes keep coming. Some better, some worse but isn't that just the human comedy? (BTW I'm pretty sure I fell off around 2013, when I switched jobs and got past the last CPA exam. A lifetime in some respects)

Anyway, I don't know how this happened but Bois 1920's range has gotten firmly on my radar. Today Rosso Relamente (surely I've misspelled it but you'll know what it is).

Today I'm wearing Etro Gomma. I may have said this before, but I'm enjoying this more than Knize Ten recently - it's less "dandy" and floral than Knize and has a bitter herbaceousness which I love.

Pre-shower: Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare. A long time ago when I first tried this, I really wanted to like it. I tried my best but the fact is I find it screechy and unpleasant.
SOTD: Maison Margiela Lipstick On. I've mentioned this a few times before: it's a waxy, ricey old-fashioned makeup scent. I enjoy it very much.

^Some nice ones yesterday/today.

Got a sample of Jo Malone Tobacco/Mandarine today (from the limited edition "Bloomsbury Set.") It's nice and gives me a momentary blast of the original Guerlain Vetiver's wonderful tobacco note... though it's far less interesting and ultimately stays fairly linear along the line of its name.

Maybe worth a bottle if only because there isn't a lot out there like it, that takes the tobacco note without making it too resinous or heavy.

Today is D.S. Durga- Sir. The mandarin comes out but the rose absolute is strong in the front as well.  I am usually not a fan of rose scents on myself but this one is nice, the moss, patchouli and jasmine come through. I think this could grow on me.

Today I wore Masque Russian Tea. I put on four sprays, which is a lot for this heavy duty fragrance. I really enjoyed the mint today with this heavy application.

LM Parfums Hard Leather Extrait today.  It smells exactly as it sounds, its a punch of leather but in a really good way. A really well aged leather and rum scent, but I feel as if I can smell a barrel, like a spicy dried rum barrel.  I also get the plasticky styrax smell that adds somehow to the spiciness. A really cool scent if you are into leather.

Today I'm wearing Creed Erolfa. One of the less discussed Creeds. perfect for a day in the mid 70's

Escentric 02 by Escentric Molecules today. A really interesting fragrance, I smell what I believe to be the ambroxan but I am not sure, it is a bit of a floral but white musk kind of thing. Not too musky/amber to be overly masculine but not too white/floral to be too feminine. A slightly bright fragrance that I think could be used in summer or winter, and seeing as its brisk and cold but sunny outside where I am it is perfect.
