    Lalique - Nilang. No fan. I'm not sure what it reminds me of, probaly TF - Black Orchid because I get some sort of similar melon note -- but melon isn't listed in the notes of Nilang so maybe I'm just confused.

    Pre-shower: Amouage Gold Man. With the Lord as my witness, I declare that I like this one better than the feminine. My favorite Amouage of the ones I've tried.

    SOTD: Keiko Mecheri Canyon Dreams

    Longevity is much better, too, right?

    Edit: Didn't see the pre-shower part. :p

    This evening: Arquiste Aleksandr - a leather offset by a pleasant green violet leaf scent. I like my leathers to be dirtier or they cross over into the "gourmand" realm in my mind.

    Some interesting SOTDs, fellas. Keep up the good work. :)

    Finished up a 30ml of Ungaro II today. Was a little too hot/dry for it to work (the citrus burned off and left the civety/creamy vibe, which didn't work at this temperature).

    Will switch to something lighter for an evening out tonight. Haven't decided yet, but probably Cristalle EdT (Chanel)

    Yeah, I didn't get a chance to test its longevity. But it was still going strong when I went into the shower, which is a good sign.

    Pre-shower: Le Labo Neroli 36. I don't usually like neroli, but in this one mandarin orange and aldehydes give it some much-needed lift. There's a strong laundry musk note that I like as well.
    SOTD: ELDO Tilda Swinton. This may actually be a top five fragrance for me, or at least top ten. I love this stuff.

    @rach: The top of Canyon Dreams is somewhat Jicky-esque, minus the baby poo.

    I like it a lot. It smells very expensive, and alas, it is very expensive! There are a thousand things going on in this one, and the journey from the top through the base is compelling at every stage. Longevity is extremely good. My main worry for you is that it's quite heavy; there's a good chance it would be pretty oppressive in the heat and humidity down there.

    Just hearing the name makes me dislike it.

    ...today Acqua di Parma, an older bottle that has grown immensely on me. Today though it had a bit of powder/rose going on early in the development - not enough to make me run for the showers though. It was very nice.

    ...

    So, I have a quandry that does not deserve its own thread. I have some Amber Absolute and it is now discontinued. Let's say I have 20 ml of AA, and another 30ml en route. I can get an additional 30 ml or so but I think the swapper wants my Tobacco Vanille in exchange. At that point I don't know that I'd give up the TV to get the AA

    ^I'm with you, T (on Clive!)

    Speaking of smelling and being expensive, am trying to work through this 30ml bottle of Acqua Fiorentina (Creed) as my SOTD

    A nice, harmless waterfruit/apple/citrusy aquatic. I wish someone who bought this would be forced to wear a Roudnitska stinky fruit (Diorella, Dior Dior, or Parfum de Therese) just to see how a fruit note can be done in a way that has backbone, depth, and yet still be very wearable.

    A little bit of AA goes a very long way; 50ml is a lot, IMO. If I were in your shoes, I wouldn't make that trade.

    Have you ever tried Profumi del Forte Versilia Vintage Ambra Mediterranea? It's a very pleasant amber, less boozy than AA and a bit softer with more vanilla sweetness.

    If the price is good then I say do it. A) you KNOW you'll be able to source the TV easily, and B) You have Angel Pure Havanne which you enjoy even more.

    Today, important business lunch, so Chanel PM. This seems to be the perfect scent for conservative offices and lunches with bankers. It stays very close to the skin and does not offend anyone. I may like Mitsouko more, but I don't think it would go so unnoticed and might generate some rather strong reactions in people. What other scents do you guys like for conservative environments? Acqua di Parma sprayed lightly?

    Yesterday The Different Company's newer edc series. The lime and midnight one. Wouldn't buy samples again, the former isn't my favorite style of lime edc and the latter I don't enjoy.
