I tried Thé Noir 29 by Le Labo the other day, quite nice, quite figgy/slight mango tea at the start.

If anyone has any recommendations for a scent that does actually smell like/evoke black tea, send them my way!
The Noir 29 is probably the best Le Labo I've put my nose on. I like how it's a slightly sweet, creamy fig. I hate green fig fragrances like Diptyque Philosykos, but this one is actually good. The only other Le Labo I enjoyed was Labdanum 18.

As far as black tea fragrances, I don't know many, but surely you've tried Gucci Pour Homme II? That is a proper black tea and cinnamon scent.

Slightly off topic, but does anyone here know if Luckyscent or Twisted Lily run any Black Friday sales?

House of Matriarch is having a sale this weekend. 50% off sitewide and triple points with the checkout code DECADENCE. I think this is the biggest promotion I've seen them do.

Their Coco Blanc is really nice, and so is a lot of the line, although truthfully I've been more into synthetic fragrances lately.

Wearing Nishane's Safran Colognise today. Can't say I like it. There's a smokey scent to it, which I liked in Amouage Myths Man (probably more ash than smoke) but doesn't work for me in this scent.

Masque Russian Tea smells like black tea to me

Safran is a favorite note this time of year. I've been hitting my bottle of L'Homme Sage hard the last month.

Wearing Jazz Club today, chilling at home. Love this stuff but don't think it's good for work, so I'll just enjoy it myself.

With the Twisted Lily promo I picked up a bottle of Avignon as well as samples of CDG-Black and Montale-Pure Incense recommended by @HORNS and @ghdvfddzgzdzg over the summer. All I wear anymore is Portrait of a Lady and the addition of more incense is exactly what I want.

If I make any purchases in 2020 they will probably be vintage. Was hoping to try the Celine Haute line but they’ve kept them very exclusive for now.

I have so many damn incense fragrances, but I love that style and appreciate each one. If you like labdanum, you'd want to find a decant of the discontinued Sahara Noir, by Tom Ford, which is like Avignon but with the labdanum.

Try a sample of Zdravetz right now. First notes are strongly synthetic, but it calms down within a few minutes. Citrus (mostly grapefruit) over a subdued rose so far, a little leather peeking out, green notes that I can't pick out yet. Cedar is there but not prominent yet. A lot going on here, will be interesting to see how it develops.

Anyone get around to trying any of the new celine scents? None of the descriptions sounded too interesting to me but the basenotes board seems pretty hyped on “reptile”.
