1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm wearing Hermann à Mes Côtés Me Paraissait Une Ombre, which is the latest ELDO. It's a sheer, light, somewhat sour frankincense scent that opens with blackcurrant. It's a little reminiscent of Avignon in that it has a wet stone feel. It's not really the kind of scent I enjoy, but I try everything that ELDO releases.

    I suspect a lot of the regulars here would like Hermann more than I do.

    EDIT: The longevity on this one is really excellent.

    Geranium PM today. My samples of Lonesome Rider arrived today, so you already know my next SOTD.

    SOTD is L'artisan Fou D'Absinthe. Started off sweeter than I remember. Has moved into a green dry spices almost creamy barbershop direction. I guess I always thought of this as rather 'green' but I'm seeing it now as more spicey ie 'brown/black'. Sort of like Azzarro and Rive Gauche with a vetiver added, give or take. Still not sure I love it, but something I could grow into in 10 years when I'm 40

    I sprayed it on a blotter yesterday and liked it, but it seemed to me that it could disappear quickly.
    Today I wore Tubereuse Criminelle.

    As I mentioned just above, the longevity is really very good. I was surprised by that.

    Today I wore True Lust Rayon Violet de Ses Yeux. I'm a big fan of this one.

    Fate Man is wonderful. I'm also a big fan of Fate Woman.

    Today I am wearing Tauerville Amber Flash.

    I've never been much of a fragrance guy outside of shower gels like Molton Brown's Black Pepper(formula changed, boo), but I think it's time I finally indulge a bit. Ordered some CDG samples as a start, and will try some of the other recommend fragrances on this thread in the future.

    Pay especially close attention to my posts because I have the best taste in this whole thread. It has been proven by science.

    Slumberhouse Norne to appreciate one of the last days for a while cold enough to wear it. love, love, love this stuff.

    found out the other day that Norne will stain clothing if you don't let it dry completely first. surprised i hadn't discovered this already.

    SOTE is Honour Woman by Amouage. It's a tart, peppery white floral. I wish it were a bit less peppery.
