    It’s one of the few fragrances of which I have multiple backup bottles of the old square-shaped eau de toilet.

    i'm trying a sample of Comme des Garcons Garage (current formulation). Top notes, well it smells like sunscreen on me. It also smells like licorice for the first few minutes, so you add the two together, and I'm reminded of being a child at the beach with my grandmother. I also get a whiff of scratch and sniff sticker. Fascinating. Dunno if it's going to change over the course of the day or not.

    Thanks, dieworkwear. Claire, the third contributor in that piece, is such a good writer.

    She is indeed. Her reviews are first rate.
    She and I swapped bottles in 2018, she sent me Santal 33, which was a year long obsession of mine. Still is. Trying to remember what I sent her for that. Her Best of 2018 concludes with praise for two of my favorite scents, Bruno Fazzonlari Feu Secret (my decant is gone; need a bottle) and Slumberhouse New Sibet.

    Tonight the cold weather is rolling back in so I broke out my decant of the great and scarce Norma Kamali Incense, and now I am in a cloud of sawed wood, pitch, tar and smoke. It is really outstanding, if you enjoy incense fragrances.
    cheers guys!

    Penhaligon's Esprit du Roi for me, Terre d'Hermes and CDG Wonderwood for leisure time. I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to scents, especially the boutique ones discussed here.

    *ninja edit*

    Tom Ford's Oud Wood is also great.

    @James1051 new sibet is real good. Almost bought a bottle before deciding it wasn't quite me.

    Today I wore Trumper Sandalwood, which, in my opinion is better than its analogue Egoiste because of superior strength and longevity.

    I think I’m going to order it. I only recognize three names on it and thinking back on what I sampled last year very few were new releases. Really cool offer and thanks for the heads up.


    I’ve finished samples of Civet by Zoologist (plan on buying) and Chypre Palatin. I really enjoyed Civet and what Roja Dove wrote about the classic Guerlains, Cotys Chypre and other turn of the century perfumes has me wanting to explore the category. Do you guys have any favorites that aren’t to difficult to source? Eau D’hermes and a few from Oriza L Legrand are on my list to sample.
