    I'm sporting TV by Ford today. This may sounds crazy but it neither smells like a new automobile nor like a TV.

    Pre-shower: Hermès Rouge
    SOTD: Fumerie Turque. On me it does not smell like an opium den where a person has urinated on the carpet. Although I can't discount the possibility that other people will smell it that way.

    ^I loved Parfum D'hermes! Isn't Rouge related to it?

    SOTD: Pasha de Cartier. Another that I found in one of my boxes from Japan of winter stuff I'd not unpacked. Found it along with two old bottles of Monsieur Givenchy, Marc Jacobs Men, and a half-ounce parfum bottle of Coco.

    Pasha is a nice "gentlemanly" scent... but nothing stellar. Descrips usually read "Mint/lavender/sandalwood" and that's pretty much it. Some patchouli for kick. It FEELS like a much older 1970's/80's manly scent, but apparently it was introduced in 1992.

    Always a good choice. That's one of the few (along with Helmut Lang EdP and EdC and TDC Rose Poivree) that I've long since used but wish I still had in abundant supply.

    SOTD: MJ Men. It's definitely an "under the radar" scent, both in how many people wear it and how it wears. Some fig, some woody stuff at the base, and some coconunt-ish sweetness at the top. For a designer scent, it's not bad (it reminds me a lot of MJ's men's fashion, actually... well made but not very exciting). It doesn't scream out, but it doesn't cry either. I'm trying to remember where/why I bought this one and finally remembered I bought it for my spouse... but he wasn't thrilled.

    If nothing else, it makes a nice room spray. ;)

    Man I straight up thought you were talking about Michael Jordan 23 Cologne at first.

    Haha. My first real "LOL" of the day. :)

    I did own a bottle of KISS HIM for a few days . I even did a basenotes review of which I'm still proud.

    I own KISS Him! (I am a KISS fan for real and not ironically.) Your BN review is excellent. Unfortunately, I think the fragrance is awful!

    Oh yeah, it's bad. But as a rockstar scent, I was surprised that it took some real chances. Then again so did the Khmer Rouge, FWIW.

    I was scratching my head about Michael Jordan too, until Rach mentioned fig. Then I remembered.

    Wearing Essence of John Galliano today.

    I've had all the "fig" scents (Philosykos, Premier Figeur, etc) and while others are more interesting, the MJ isn't bad for a subdued scent that won't draw attention to itself. It's worth a try as a "cheapy."

    Seeing on Luckyscent that Helmut Lang EDP EDC and Cuiron have all been re-issued in what is supposed to be a true replica of the original formula - I've ordered samples and can report but anyone tried the new stuff?

    Been re-issued??? OMG! ZOMG! I'm so out of the loop.

    Must google forthwith. After probably ten bottles of the old juice... I can't wait. I hope they didn't mess with it. They were (along with some of the original CdG scents) the best designer juice ever made.
