Today: Chanel Antaeus. For some reason it doesn't quite have the depth and fullness I've been used to.

I just find it *too* strong.

Clarins Par Amour for me today...I really wish they hadn't named this "Par Amour"...so unfitting.

I don't really find it weird at all anymore...smelling of tires and vanilla seems normal to me now.

Wearing Jubilation XXV today...stuff is six kinds of strong. 2 sprays and I think I over did it.

So I'm going to go ahead and buy Hermes Un Jardin En Mediterranee. I'm going to take it traveling so I will be getting the 1.7oz. What are some good websites to order from? I don't want to get stuck with knockoffs or testers but most of the discount fragrance sites look sketchy to me...

Now that I think of it, I'd go to basenotes check the sales threads, and see who offers decants on the side. You're sure to get good juice from them, and the prices are probably better than the ebay seller.

Thanks fo the tip on The Perfumed Court, Thomas (first time hearing of it). It'll do perfectly - for Antaeus samples and other brands. Nice prices, great international shipping.

Just bought some Acqua de Gio. Laugh if you wish, but it's better than the Axe I was using before.

"Better than Axe" is a rather low bar to clear, but Acqua de Gio does not suck. Overplayed, perhaps, but still good.

Today: Guerlain Habit Rouge. Can't believe I've overlooked this one for so long.
