Continuing in a gourmand mode, I'm wearing Slumberhouse Ore today. Booze, cake, boozy cake, ale, bread. Great holiday scent that I have a hard time wearing outside the holidays. I had a decant of Ore; liked it, so I bought a bottle; then was gifted a mini (15mL) bottle. Then for some damn reason, I sold both bottles. Back to just a decant. Wish I had kept the 15mL mini. :brick:

I understand Guerlain is intending to or has brought back the original VETIVER scent ?

Anyone else like to wear summer fragrances around the holidays?
Tonight wearing my favorite summer cheat, AdP Colonia Assoluta.
Fruity, floral, musky and very uplifting.

Sultan Pasha Pure Incense, my go-to for days where it's between 40 and 60 Fahrenheit.

I love that one, but only wear it once in a while (note to self: wear it this holiday week). I have a 30mL decant. I put it up for swap planning to buy a bottle, but I don't think I have any shot at emptying a full 50mL bottle of Lys Med. Just going to keep the 30mL decant, which will last me for years.

I wore vintage Gianfranco Ferre for Men yesterday, a classic leather-oakmoss chypre. Similar to Bel Ami I'd say, but definitely cheaper!

Sample of Amouage Sunshine Man based on a recommendation on this thread. I like it but not enough to buy the bottle.

trying a sample of Mad Et Len Terre Noire today; it's super boring. at the top it smells like old spice w a little leather, and then quickly becomes a very boilerplate wood and spice scent.

I wore vintage Giorgio for Men on Christmas Day, like I almost always do. I also got myself a bottle of New York Intense, which is a simply amazing fragrance - timeless in feel even though it was recently created. If you miss oakmoss in fragrances, then this will scratch your itch.

Today tried Eauk Barreur, a relatively new release from 2017. I get saffron, lavender, pink pepper, cocoa, amber, and leather. It's a nice, warm, and slightly spicy scent that vaguely reminds me of some things I've smelled from Patricia de Nicolai. It's interesting and sophisticated, but very wearable. The only thing that puts me off is that I get that slightly dusty, "bottom of the make-up bag" quality that sometimes comes with fragrances containing lavender or iris. Lavender isn't officially listed in the noes, but there's a powdery floral quality somewhere here.

Managed to get hold of a vintage unopened bottle of Derby EdT from someone who clearly didn't know what it was. First time I tried the original formula. Modern Derby is an excellent fragrance, but gosh this is something else. Must be one of the greatest chypres ever made. Great depth and complexity. Love those bergamot and citrus top notes and the long, long drydown with oakmoss, patchouli and leather. Need to get more of this stuff.
