    Intense Cafe today. Not doppio espresso, more like cafe latte with three sugars.

    I can't believe I sold both bottles of Parure and didn't even keep a decant.

    I can't believe you did that either! That was a great find.

    Les Nuits d'Hadrien today. Yesterday was Speakeasy.

    I went on holiday for two weeks before that. I took two decants with me: Opus III and Invasion Barbare. The Opus III wouldn't spray and I started to develop a rash when I used the IB. So I ended up not having anything.

    That sucks CD, had you not tried the IB before you took it away with you?

    As a 23 years old guy receiving his first "decent salary", this was my first "investment".

    I've been waiting for some time to buy this, but I absolutely love it.

    I also heard the old Vintage Tabarome was even better, I hope I'll have the chance to try it one day.

    Can't seem to enlarge the pic but appears to be Creed Tabarome in which case congrats on the job and the purchase, good dry green scent I enjoy wearing a lot in spring / summer. For cheaper alternatives if you don't want to waste all your juice consider Aramis Havana.

    Today for me was Oriza L. LeGrand Oeillet Louis XV. Interesting carnation scent, with herbs and spices.

    I have a sample of Memoir Man and tried it on my wrists today - man, this is some good stuff! I think I have my first Amouage purchase lined up.

    Also got a a sample of Fate Man - while it is quality, I need more time with it because, unlike Memoir, it is not immediately gratifying with the immortel component. Funny, because I love Tilda Swinton Like This and its heavy immortel, but Fate is more of a curry-like immortel and I will need some more time on this.

    I had actually, and I was quite surprised. I think what may have happened is that I usually apply scent after a moisturiser layer. I had a different moisturiser with me, and I suspect it was not as good a barrier.

    Today is CdG Play Red.

    Going out after work tonight for a classy event so rocking the Jubilation XXV today, unfortunately my light touch approach may have been overdone today as I can barely detect any after just 3 hours...thankgoodness I keep a small stash of Creed MI for emergencies.

    Morning all

    Pre-shower (ie, last night's leftovers): Huitieme Art Parfum's Ambre Ceruleen. This amber starts with herbal notes, a la Ambre Sultan, and quickly switches over to a slightly sweet mix with tonka and cinnamon. A nice overnight scent. What I've been asking myself about the ambers is, how many do you really need? Several of them work great for me, including this one.

    My working frag of the day is L'Artisan's Safran Troublant, an interesting combo of snappy ginger, saffron and milky sandalwood. Starts with a nice kick of sage, to my nose, though I don't see that listed. Anyway, the fragrance seems appropriate for the return of cool autumn temps.

    Every time I've tried Safran Troublant I've liked it and yet I've never considered getting a bottle.
