    It's been a while but based on the notes and reviews, it must be Dzing. The negative reviews says it smells like a public restroom and that's what I remember about it but for some reason I want a bottle.

    Edit: Found my original review on basenotes. It is Dzing!

    Just applied some MFK masculin Pluriel. Lots of anise, some vetiver, cedar and patchouli in the opening. Let's see how this develops

    Applied Lumière Noire homme earlier today. It's a bit of a "cold" rose scent. I'll need to give it a second go. Longevity is mediocre, from what I can tell.

    I was thinking of ordering the Pluriel, but the description didn't really appeal to me. I'll be curious to hear what you think.

    I am wearing a fragrance called Bois des Iles (Boys of the Aisles in French, I think.)

    Gotta say, I don't enjoy it. Vetiver and anise is an odd combination to me.

    You should layer it with Avignon, for that full altar boy experience.

    SOTE is El Attarine by Serge Lutens. This gives a definitive answer to the question, Is there such a thing as too much cumin? (Answer is yes, there is such a thing.)

    Anyone have experience with Fille en Aiguilles by Serge Lutens? I've smelled the U.S. range of fragrances many, many times and somehow this has passed unnoticed until today. It's like a doped-up Jubilation XXV.

    Pluriel has got to be one of the more disappointing recent efforts by Kurkdjian, probably followed closely by Aqua Vitae. In the wake of Silk Oud, looks like he is hitting a low patch on creativity.

    I have always said that Lumiere Noire is a stupid name- Black Light, yeah right. LN Homme scent is pretty enjoyable though, and on me, longevity is good enough average, nothing special. LN Femme IMO is better constructed.

    I had never been a huge fan of the MFK lineup until the Oud series, which I thought was ridiculously good. Especially Oud Silk Mood. I like LN Homme quite a bit too.

    Oud silk mood. I've worn this a while ago, on the back of my hand. I though it was "nice", but not much more. So, of course, given the praise from L'Inc (and others in this thread), I've had to revisit it. What can I say, I like it a lot. A great blend of rose, oud, and other stuff. Need to give it a few more tries to see whether it develops much (seemed relatively linear today).

    L'Artisans sampler kit arrived today. Also, my Amouage Man sample kit--now that's what a sample box needs to look like! Along with the Amouage sampler, I've received samples from ELDO: Rien, Noel au Balcon, Tom of Finland. I just applied some Noel au Balcon. I get a similar vibe off it as off Tea for Two (it's been a while since I've worn that scent though). I like it so far.

    Pre-shower: LDDM
    SOTD: L'etre Aime Homme. I haven't worn this in quite a while. It's an aromatic immortelle. That makes it sound like it should be similar to Eau Noire, but it's really not. L'Etre Aime Homme is much grainier and woodier.

    Indeed. Have already tried all but one of the Amouage scents though. It's just that my samples are almost empty and the value of the sampler box is too good to pass up.

    Mark Birley today. A slightly different take on cologne, with white flowers and a bit woody. I like it, but I’m wary of using it too often as I’ll probably never be able to buy a replacement.
