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
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.
Holy Moly @Thomas is back?! Dude, where've you been? You didn't post all of 2016, and had one post in 2015. So it's been basically 2 years.... glad to hear you're still around and welcome back. 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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
