    Yeah Ive gone through two samples of LV Vetiver and one small one of Yerbamate - which i think I am leaning towards now. I've also really been enjoying samples of Montale's Vetiver De Sables, and Steam Aoud.. So I may take some more time to decide.

    Too much good stuff to choose from!


    Montale's Aouds are wonderful... if you like Steam, then you'll probably love Black Aoud or White Aoud.

    If you like a rose note, then Aoud Queen Rose is an absolute must.

    Ormonde Jayne Isfarkand. Not sure if I like it yet.

    this one takes a few tries, it's what I wish Baladin had been.
    Also, Ormonde Man is damned good.

    Today: Chanel Antaeus. Nothing more need be said, although I nearly swiped Mrs. Thomas's bottle of Chance.

    I have a sample of that too but I seem to like it even less than Isfarkand. Maybe it does take a few tries...

    It took a while for me to come around to OM, which is a more sinister version of Hermes' Bel Ami. It also took time for Bel Ami to click for me, and for me it's strictly a cold-weather scent.

    +1 for Isfarkand - it's a favorite of mine in regular rotation...

    did you ever try Le Labo patchouli 24? If you like Black, I think you'll REALLY dig the LeLabo.

    I haven't smelled any of the Le Labo yet. I'll have to head down to Barney's and check 'em out. Thanks for the tip!

    ^You're welcome. They are both created by the same "nose" and one is MUCH more intense, so I think you'll really dig it. Unfortunately, the Le Labo costs an arm and a leg, but has the best longevity of any scent I've worn. I used up my bottle, but there were times when I'd put it on in the morning, wear it all day, go out at night, and wake up the next morning with it STILL discernible on my arm.

    For me, Jicky EdP again today. I'm also in some top-secret negotiations with some back channels trying to get a good deal on the full-on Parfum version... so stay tuned.

    for a chilly Friday and looking for something new, I swiped Mrs. Thomas's bottle of Chanel Chance. It doesn't feel terribly different from A*Men Pure Coffee excepting that the coffee note is dialed way back to make room for some iris.

    Sampling Prada infusion d'home today,
    I'm going to have to track down a bottle of this one for sure.

    Rive Gauche today and Chanel Anteus later tonight. Have been waiting for winter to start to kick in to wear the Anteus again.
