    I did! A very soft, dry, lovely musk without the funk or animalic notes of some others. It is almost imperceptible on the skin until you get moving or warm it up. Or, it was when I had a bottle back seven-eight years ago. I always give that warning because of reformulations.

    Cleef and Van Arpels Pour Homme today. Juniper to kick off and then vetiver and patchouli, finally leather and oakmoss... it's basically as old school 'homme' as it is possible to get. But it just about stays in the gentleman's club rather than crossing over fully into the pure animal-marking-its-territory stink. I think I prefer Tsar, which has more subtlety despite the name.

    Bought a bottle of CdG Sugi yesterday - very clean and uplifting evergreen, like the skin of an unripe mango.

    I am wearing Midnight in Paris today for no reason other than that I wanted to. I am sort of constantly surprised by this one; or maybe I just always forget how much I like it. I never expect it to be as masculine as (I think) it is. I find the lily very soothing, too.

    Creed Green Irish Tweed. I remember not being bowled over by it when I smelled it many years ago, but I'm coming around. It's a classic scent that is never out of place.

    Givenchy Intensé Ultramarine today. As a rule, I despise all of these aquatic / 'sport' fragrances, and when versions of existing scents are done it's often even worse, and this one is not doing much to persuade me otherwise. They all seem to smell so flat and artificial, like you work cleaning up chemical spills in a perfume factory, as opposed to actually wearing something you wanted to smell.

    Today I wore a fairly generous dosage of Drakkar Noir from a decant I got early in my collecting. Reminds me of dad. Now I can't really pick it apart, some sort of sweet almost fruity watery soapy scent. Eh I got nothing. Anyway it's pleasant and fairly classic. Different for a typical 80's (?) bit a full bottles not in my future and I'm sure I'll just finish this decant and move on.

    Oh I've been meaning to post about this. Had anyone found a similarity between Live Jazz and Green Irish Tweed?

    And for you guys who've been at this for a while, ever notice that warm sought fluffy earthy lavender common element between Ford Lavender Palm and Lutens Gris Clair?


    Currently spending a week in Israel so brought a few random decants to finish. So far worn Live Jazz and Drakkar. Also wore Givenchy Vetiver, also one of my first decants. I'd say its a warm sweet almost watery take on vetiver. Very nice and above average. Not sure if it's still a cheapie but good solid easy to wear vetiver.

    Nyet. If I make some money in Vegas this weekend on some football games, I will buy it with a quickness. This is all silly because over the past two weeks I've bought two Cire Trudon candles, a bottle or Rien and a bottle of Sugi.

    I've never seen you report that as your SOTD before. How do you like it?

    Whoa, how did I miss the new TF PB Patchouli Absolu? I have to try this. Has anyone here smelled it yet?
