    Yesterday: Cannibale by Serge Lutens. This was my first time trying it. It's a very pleasant frankincense scent that dries down with a bit of ambery sweetness. It's quite reminiscent of TF Sahara Noir, but it's not quite as dirty at the top and it's sweeter in the drydown. Reviewers online have described facets of this as being very off-putting, but I don't get that at all. I suspect they were being influenced by the name.

    Today: Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint Germain. I've liked this since I first tried it, which was right after it came out, but I've been without a decant for quite a while. I recently ordered another one and I'm still a big fan. There's a million things going on, and it seems like they shouldn't all work together, but they do. It's very spicy, with cardamom, cinnamon, and lots of clove, but it's also woody and a bit floral.

    Indochine by Parfumerie Générale. It's a very warm, pleasant sandalwood with cardamom and benzoin. PG is one of those houses I tend to forget about, but I don't think I've tried anything by them that I dislike. Their L'Ombre Fauve and Brulure de Rose are also very nice.

    Amouage Bracken Man today - I'm coming off a bad cold and I can't really smell very much so all I can say is that it feels like a relatively uncomplicated green fougere but I am probably missing all the subtleties.

    God, yes. Any folks who are into Mozart? Unfortunately, though, the current EdT is flabby without its oakmoss.

    Today I wore Portrait of a Lady, which will stay strongly on me until tomorrow morning.

    Diptyque Philosykos. Reading notes of people getting fig and cedar/woods and all I'm smelling is coconut.

    Sounds intriguing. I tend to favor Amouage scents.
    Edit: In fact, today I'm wearing Memoir Man.

    Love CPM. But to your point, I have been layering the vintage CPM, with its delish oakmoss base with a spritz or two of the modern. A re-creation of the original, with oakmoss and fresh topnotes.:slayer:

    I remembered smelling that fabulous citrus with oakmoss opening ( am I correct to say that? ) only a few months ago from a tester at some non descript perfume fair.

    but when i went to navigate the retail counters, their testers seem to fall real flat. I was wondering if any of you fragrance archivists/dinosaurs ( lol ) can help me navigate what's the closest to that CPM now.

    I spy CPM EDT, and CPM EDP. And there is this concentree which a lot of folks say its a separate flanker.

    I might be able to procure a vintage CPM pre IFRA oakmoss watering down. But I'm not sure if the citrus notes will still be there. Should it be layered like it was mentioned above?
