Xeryus Rouge (Givenchy) today. Hadn't worn this one in AGES but was given a bottle not long ago. Boring, fruity, and a little dark. I could see wearing this in the evening in spring/summer when I want something dull and that won't raise eyebrows.

It's got that "blended" synthetic style where no one element comes through, and it all feels rather muted. I like something that I can trace, something that develops in surprising/interesting ways. This one just feels a little meh.

Annick Menardo, who I generally like as a "nose," made this one, though it seems he played it awfully safe. Nevertheless, there is just that HINT of something dark in it that perhaps shows he tried to twist it just a tad.

sounds a lot like the reformed Nicole Miller for Men.

I hadn't tried the reformed one... though the Givenchy has no spice to speak of. It's quite "smooth," almost like a more boring recent version of Ungaro III. Less sweet, more fruit, but slightly dark, and quite smooth.

It's not a BAD scent... it's just not got that character I tend to like in my fragrances. Nothing that jumps out and makes you take notice. Just sort of flat.

L'Eau d'Hiver by EdP Frederic Malle today. A soft floral (heliotrope I find out) and a sharpish green topnote (it smelled vetiverish to me). Base is a vaguely woody vanilla, but the vanilla is on the light side. So all in all a nice fresh soft understated floral with a relaxed vibe. I could see wearing this to the beach or something. Kind of a "On Vacation" feel. Too bad I am in my office at work!

Have a good weekend everyone

CdR is wonderful; one of the classic leathers. It and tabac blond are perhaps my two favorite "classic" leathers.

D&G Light Blue is enjoyable, even in winter.

Yesterday - Etro Sandalwood - Oddly got more of a powdery vibe at the opening than I'm used to. Sort of killed it for me. Today - Ormonde Jayne Isfarakand - No idea what this smells like, still, but its so fucking good.

To me, it smells somewhat floral with a leather accent and quite unisex. The iris note is pretty noticeable, and it dries down to a luxurious smelling plush, soft leather. I still smelled it over 8 hours after application, so it seems to last on me pretty well. I like it a lot. Mine is the EDT; I've never tried the parfum.

Today, I'm wearing Bois du Portugal.

Today: Habit Rouge Legere. Either I'm getting soft and indiscriminate, or I finally get it, but I finally get the lineage to the original, and I'm a bit more accepting of it than before.
