    Having reminded myself of it the other day, I decided to go big and old school today with the original Tabac ...

    Byredo 1996. Lots of black pepper spice and lasts a long time. I love it but the woman in my family do not.

    Some good selections these days. So nice to see the HUGE range of scents being tried/worn on the forum in the last year or so. Also very humbling as the vast majority of them are now ones I've never even heard of... much less sniffed. I've got some work to do.

    It's cold and wet today... so I'm thinking L'instant PM Extreme sounds just about right. This one, in all of its various forms (including the short-lived "l'instant d'un ete") has been a favorite of mine ever since it was released in the early 00's.

    I'm wearing Jacques Bogart Furyo. It starts as an 80s fougere, w bergamot, lavender and oakmoss. But as the lavender fades, a civet note wafts up that joins the oakmoss in the base. Soon enough jasmine and and geranium come to the fore, as do amber and patch. And now you notice that this fougere has morphed into an oriental.

    Its pretty big the first 2-3 hours, is Furyo; but it settles down soon enough. And as the florals fade, that oakmoss-civet-patch-amber base just gets better with time. Good thing, because it sticks around for a full day.

    Have a great one, guys.

    Some new ones recently:

    I Hate Perfume's In the Library: Creamy, wet coconut in the opening, and somewhat linear throughout, but as the smell fades -- and it fades quickly -- this begins to smell like parchment paper. Some reviewers online say they get leather here, but I don't get that. A little like warm milk and parchment paper, with a bit of wood and vanilla in the background. It's nice, but incredibly fleeting, turning into a skin scent after about an hour. I think I'd like it more if it were so ephemeral.

    Medittorosa's ID: I've been trying their Trilogy series, and while they're nice, there's a medicinal quality to them that I don't really like. This one is very warm and spicy. I get lots of cinnamon, wood, nutmeg, and labdanum. Fragrance makes me a bit nauseous after a while, but they have some nice looking packaging.
