    SL Fleurs d'Oranger today, as we tick back up into very hot weather. Like all SL, this one has great projection and longevity. It's one of the best orange blossom scents that I have, I think.

    CD Eau Sauvage Parfum today. This is not what I thought it would be. I was expecting a beefed-up version of the original, perfect for a hot summer's day. Instead I have some woody monster that is bringing tears to my eyes. I really don't like this, although I will give it another go in the depths of winter, in its natural habitat.

    +1 to the Eau Sauvage Parfum. Was expecting something related to the original and instead got a take on their Privee Eau Noir more or less. A thick syrupy green cumin immortel woody scent. Not bad, but fairly monolithic and not so easy to wear IMO. At least they're doing mainstream releases as parfums. I never really liked DH but the parfum version (and hey ok the cologne too) are pretty solid. Plus I really like the bottles, not that it's either here or there.

    SOTD is Michael Kors. I think this decant is the original version. I keep waffling on whether or not to get a full bottle of this one. I'm testing it against other fruity tobacco related scents. The longevity is pretty poor and there's something shrill and raspy about the tobacco but otherwise I really like it. Varvatos Vintage is one of the main competitors but I think I'll go for the Kors in the end. Now to try and find vintage, and at a good price. Dern.

    New Years Day its 34c flat dry heat at present and off to the movies and then a recovery BBQ. Brought out the sample of Creed Tabarome Millesime I've had sitting their for a while. Uplifting citrus to begin with then ginger emerges mixed with more spice, which has a soft edge to it. Be interesting to see how it develops over the day.

    Overall a bit of disappointment to be honest went limp and powdery after a couple of hours, nothing really to get excited about to be honest.

    SOTD was Tom Ford Patchouli Absolu. Eh, decent... fairly thick and rich but just not all that interesting. My 10ml decant is more than I'd ever want. Maybe too much...

    SOTE Le Labo The Noir and darn it if it doesn't remind me of Creed's SMW. Has this metalic watery black tea thing going on. Like Gucci Ph II without the powder/soap. Speaking of which I think I need to get a bottle of that, great smelling cheapie (well it used to be), plus I LOVE the bottle.

    This Labo has had surprising longevity but I do find it's a little hollow and tinny. I prefer my black tea a la Tea for Two and the like. It's not bad, and I'm waffling on if I'd want a decant...

    Yes, it is very cold here in the DC area. I played golf in shorts and short sleeves on Xmas day.

    I am wearing Davidoff Cool Water, as usual.

    Today I'm wearing Iris 39 - man, if you want something that PROJECTS and lasts all day, this is it. It's an amazing fragrance, but the iris is masked by the violet leaf and the patchouli, the latter of which is apparently at a higher concentration in this fragrance than it is in its namesake Patchouli 24. That's one thing that can be said about all of the Le Labos I've worn - they all are very, very tenacious. Definitely one of my favorite houses. Ylang 49, Santal 33, Labdanum 18, and The Noir 29 all deserve to be part of my collection.
