    PSA: Some of you might really be interested in this. Andy Tauer has a brand new scent, called Lonesome Rider, that is meant as a celebration of his ten years in business. It is supposed to be in the ballpark of Orris (a limited edition from quite a while ago) and Lonestar Memories. The pre-sale price is very, very low for a Tauer.

    Wow, nice find! I'm so tempted and probably will regret not getting it.

    You were the first person I thought of.

    EDIT: Speaking of harsh leather scents, I'm wearing Vierges et Toreros as my SOTE. It's a white floral blended with some aggressive animalic and leathery notes.

    Heeley Cuir Plein Fleurs today. Blind buy at last week's sale. My this is noice. It's clearly a leather frag from the outset, but not intrusive at all. Not is it the girly floral its name suggests. Lasts well - 14 hours+ - and retains some of the leather all the way, with some ozonic element late in the day.

    Vintage Amouage Interlude. Weather is not cold enough for this monster, still.

    Pre-shower: Epic Woman. These Amouage scents have a way of growing on me. For both Lyrics and this one, my first reaction was either negative or unsure. But then I came to enjoy all of them more and more with repeated wearings. Today I liked Epic Woman more than any other time I've worn it.

    SOTD: True Lust Rayon Violet de Ses Yeux. Among my very favorites.

    Tonight I'm wearing Cuir de Lancome, I discontinued yet still easily attainable leather. It's strangely transparent; it is best described by me as a fragrance that could have been created by JC Ellena.

    Jasmin et Cigarette. This was the standout of the original ELDO lineup, but it's been overshadowed by subsequent releases. It's really an excellent fragrance whose name pretty much says what it is.

    Pre-shower: YSL Y parfum. One of the best old-school chypres.
    SOTD: Stilettos on Lex by Jul et Mad. This was love at first smell for me, and it's still one of my favorites.

    We are back into the warm weather again. Friday I wore Mona di Orio Tubereuse. I always approach tubereuse somewhat gingerly; it so easily becomes all lush and girly. This one doesn't; it has a green edge to it that keeps it civilised. I wore it to work and, after a few more dabs, out to dinner. It's versatile, lasts well, good for summer, very happy with this one.

    Less so today, with Olfactive Studios Still Life. Nice citrusy opening, but this disappeared oh-so-quickly. If you're going to design a citrusy fragrance, you need to design one that will last the distance in the heat.

    All of the Olfactive Studios disappear quickly on me.

    Have you ever tried Serge Lutens' Tubereuse Criminelle? It's such a fantastic tuberose fragrance and really the only one I have ever liked.

    Today I'm wearing Gucci Pour Homme, Tom Ford era.
    Yesterday I wore Silver Mountain Water - this one lasts a good 18 hours on me.

    What kind of bottle do you own, or is it a sample or decant?

    Oh, and I ordered the Lonesome Rider from Andy Tauer - it was too good of an opportunity to pass up, and I love orris and leather.

    I am not an expert on the history of their bottles, but I'm fairly sure it's the second of their four different bottle designs. So it is not the vintage, which came in the "shaker" bottle.

    That's the second before the last iteration, and it follows the shaker bottle. How do you like it? I love Bel Ami, which I bought an unused tester shaker bottle for my dad one year and ultimately found another for a great price, but the one you have is literally perfect as well.

    I had the shaker bottle years ago and I sold it. I always found Bel Ami to be too strong for me, though I'd have probably warmed up to it by now.

    I wore Borneo 1834 last night, I'm still enjoying it this morning before my shower.

    After a long while wearing a vintage Mysore sandalwood oil from 1973. This oil must have the most insane beta-santalol content, it's so silky-buttery sweet all the other Mysore sandalwood oils I've tried smell sternly woody and almost harsh in comparison. Too bad I didn't get more of this oil back when I still had the chance.
