    Tried out Malle's Bigarde Concentree. Musky with a powdery finish. I think I like it.

    Love this one. It is my favorite citrus and my favorite warm weather scent (assuming money is no object... for economical scents, it is Eau de lalique).

    The best description for the Malle was one from basenotes... "Cab Driver eats an orange."

    Guerlain Homme today. Wouldn't seem so bad if the marketing geniuses hadn't tried to give it a predatorial vibe.

    EXACTLY my thoughts, too, T. It is a fairly safe, innocuous citrus scent with some woods and a mojito accord, but then they went and tried to market it as a dangerous, animalic, foul sort of scent.

    I was expecting Mouchoir mixed with McQueen Kingdom and, instead, I got Tide Detergent with a hint of lime. [​IMG]

    Anyway, T, did you ever try the Arden Sandalwood? (the old one)? If not, when I get back next month, I will send you some.

    For me, today it is Guerlain Pamplelune again.

    I have not tried Arden Sandalwood; is it interesting? Sounds like you like it, which is a good thing given your preference for all things stinky!

    Today I went with Caron Pour Une Homme and got stung by a wasp not long after.

    Sisley's Eau de Campagne. I use this as my everyday summer scent, alternating randomly with Penhaligon's English Fern. The two are functional equivalents, with the former being more interesting to me at the moment but with less longevity.

    Tried out the new John Varvatos Rock Vol. 1 today. This sucks. I'm not even going to bother trying to describe the scent.

    Guerlain vetiver today. There's something in this that makes it crisp, not sure how to describe.

    Maybe the Vetiver?

    j/k, it's a great scent, simple and clean.


    Wearing Platinum Egoiste myself.

    Probably the citrus opening. When alone, it's obvious that you're smelling orange/lemon/grapefruit, but when skillfully combined with vetiver, tobacco, amber, and the like, you don't notice it so much other than a crisp effect.

    Today: Etro Shaal Nur. A light, crisp, summery barbershop incense.

    Had a bottle and ended up selling it off when I realized that it wasn't for me.
