Tauer L'oudh. I don't know where this falls on the spectrum of oud funkiness but I like it

Today I’m wearing Skive by J. Hannah, a very dry and bitter incense/leather/tobacco which is right up my alley.

I would say somewhat more than averagely funky as oud scents go. I like L'Oudh a lot.

Today I'm wearing Arabian Wood by Tom Ford. This is one of the PBs that's sort of gone down the memory hole, but it's quite nice. It starts out very sharp and green--galbanum I assume--and develops from there into a pleasant waxy, slightly sweet floral. I am not a big fan of galbanum, so I don't love the top, but the drydown makes it worth it. I got a compliment on it just as soon as I arrived at work. I don't think I've ever been complimented on this one before.

I’m going to pull out my Arabian Wood sample tomorrow and wear it again. It’s been years.

Edit - Wearing it for a couple of hours now and I'm not feeling it. You know when you open a packet or container of Kool Aid or something like that and there's this powdery smell? That's what I get.

Zegna acqua di bergamotto. All too brief. Stays a bit better on my shirt.

Pear and olive smelled pretty sweet on me. Don't know if that's what you're going for.

Wearing Bruno Nero today. Like black afgano except enormous

Most Slumberhouse scents are too much. Pear and Olive is too sweet. Shame, because pear is an underrated scent (and underrated fruit in general).

I agree that Slumberhouse can be over the top but I enjoy a few of them, especially Norne and Baque. In both cases you need to spray them on a while before you actually meet other people. But the drydowns are lovely.

If Pear & Olive is only sweet I'm not interested. Was hoping for a little nuance as well.

I think acqua di bergamotto is a much more dilute version of Zegna's Italian Bergamot which is far far more impressive and really very natural and very impressive smelling.

i smelled the Gucci's Alchemist's garden series recently. It didn't come across as very impressive. nice simple but a little boring for the prices they are asking for.

@gfmozart spot on. This was one of my first blind full bottle buys when i started getting into fragrances and wanted to see if I liked the notes I thought I would like (thus started cheap). Maybe I'll give it away.

i wouldn't give it away. I'll just overspray the cheapie on days when i feel like i don't want to splurge fragrance wise. most people can't really discern the difference on days when you use acqua di bergamotto as compared to the days you use italian bergamot. It is also the reason why I just bought the Mont Blanc Explorer ( EDP though ). The big commercial mass market Aventus clone ( or some say Aventus + dior Sauvage ). it does smell quite nice even if a tad artificial.
