Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread - Page 205

^^^ Bulgari Black will be an interesting addition to your collection. How do you like the smell of tires? Just curious. I think Sephora still carries it if there's one in your neck of the woods, and they'll provide take-home samples.

Kourous Fracheur will likewise be different from most everything else in your 'drobe. Probably a bit jarring, too: I know Matadorpoeta likens the original to a locker room funk, which is reasonably accurate if you ignore the soapy/floral notes.

Also rec hitting the Estee Lauder counter at your local dept store. But get take-home samples if at all possible.

Some swaps, and at least a few of the bottles came along for the ride, which explains Sunset Heat, Apparition, and Ho Hang (gaaah.) For the most part, any new additions are chosen largely because it's not yet been reviewed on pdp.

Ditto...everything I test is for reviewing purposes, and now and then I get lucky and love what I test enough to buy a bottle. As of late all I wear is Une Fleur de Cassie...strange, strange stuff. Almost like a floral leather. "Nice" bores me now...weird or nothing.

I'm wearing Calvin Klein Man today. Probably the worst cologne I've ever tried. It's just straight citrus from beginning to end. I bought it since it was only $10 with my Burberry London, total waste of money.

That's a solid, albeit uber-masculine wardrobe. You need some florals!

Mouchoir de Monsieur. This is my basic travelling scent, so I have been wearing it for the past few days.

Dove into Serge Lutens today with Diam Blonde. The dry down ended up at "honey flavored baby powder" which is a toss up IMHO. I'll keep it around and give it another shot later on.

And - Vetiver Oriental was yuk-ola.

Terre d'Hermes. I've never taken this one even remotely seriously before, but now I have a bottle so in we go. Quite similar to Zizan. Better than I was expecting.

L'Artisan Parfumeur's Voleur de Roses- perfect for a rainy day in L.A.!

Did you get the special 'H' bottle? I really like TdH. Highly recommend.

in the last days:

eau sauvage--changed my mind about it, smells good on a test strip, but not on my skin. thumbs down. (it's that sharp note.)

chanel allure homme cologne sport--fresh and clean but lacks character, manliness.

Is there some difference between the regular and special bottles? Quick correction: I actually tried Douce Amere yesterday, not Diam Blonde. Trying out Serge Lutens Louvre today.

No dif...same scent.

I really like Douce Amere...smells like licorice & pudding.

Louvre is bad...cherry marzipan.

The Different Company Sel de Vetiver. That's my current go to summer scent since I don't really own much lighter stuff.

This is my favorite scent, by far, but I don't think of it as light at all. The opening has a grapefruity citrus note (which tricked me into not liking it at first), but the base seems pretty deep and intense to me.
