    Back to oud. Today is Creed Royal Oud. I really did not like the opening to this - It smelled like damp wood on a rainforest walk. It's dried down to a cedar and sandalwood scent that is much better, but I don't think I'd pick this one over other ouds I've tried.

    Royal Oud hits me with something "Green" smelling on top of the woods and spice I pick up from it. I love it.

    Rocking Tuscan Leather today.

    Picked up a bottle of Le Labo Rose 31 today. Love the stuff. Been through a few small decants already so I decided to just get a bottle.

    Got the itchiest damn trigger finger of all time wanting to get a bottle if Amouage Epic Man. Someone here just tell me to do it already so I can stop adding it to my shopping cart and exiting the window.

    I don't even know if I will be believed (lent credence) when I say this, but I am wearing BdP (Bois du Portugal) today.

    It's a decent scent.

    Yesterday, Aventus. Edit: Coincidence or not, but we both wore one of Creed's most popular scents in two days. Aventus isn't bad, I just don't see what's great about it. I'd never buy a full bottle.
    (I bought one sample a year ago and just got a free sample, along with Voyage d'Hermès, on top of my last sample order from Essenza-Nobile. Speaking of which, Creed's samples are terrible. Dabbing samples without the dabbing stick thingy. At least they're 2ml (or 1.5ml). Hermès' samples are always great, 1-2ml, good atomizer.)

    Today, Bigarade Concentrée.

    Just sampled that one once, so I don't remember it very well. I know Wonderwood is completely different, but while we're at wood fragrances and recently spoke about CDG, how do you like it? IIRC people either like it or hate it.

    Malle Dries Van Noten. Didnt think much of this on my earlier tries, nice but nothing special. Wearing it today though quite enjoying the subtlety of it.

    Oud of the day today is the By Kilian Incense Oud. I've been enjoying things like Avignon this winter, so this is going down very well.

    I have another in my sample box in the form of Xerjioff Oud Stars. The mail I've read on this one makes me nervous about wearing it around the office (and on public transport). Shoul I refrain?

    Received Frapin samples.

    1270- very nice, but did not last long.
    1695- very nice, very sweet, very boozy, tobacco drydown, probably not for office.
    Passion Boisee- undecided, need another go.
    Paradis Perdu- nope.
    Speakeasy- very nice, waiting to see how long it lasts.

    Give it a whirl, bad boy. Reviews say that it is nice after 30 mins to 1 hour.

    You have already tried SL Musc Kublai Khan, so this probably wont stop you. Etat's Secretions Magnifique probably a different story...

    Anyone tried Opus VII? I have the opportunity to get involved in an Amouage split of the entire line. I have decants of Epic Man and Memoir Man. What are the other Amouage gems?

    How long did they take to arrive? I'm looking forward to Speakeasy and 1695 in particular.
