    Try Montale Black Oud... there's a dark deep rose

    Thanks for the suggestion--I think I'll get that, along with Ungaro III, in my next purchase from the Perfumed Court. I like rose fragrances a lot, but I haven't found one that I really like all the way through the dry down.

    I wore a sample of Hermes Rocabar today - it was pretty light to say the least. I, satisfyingly, noticed it more on me as the day progressed.

    That said, now that I've acquired a bunch of these 1-2mL decants from varoius sources, somebody here has to tell me (a) what the plastic "wand" attached the cap is for, and (b) how I am supposed to apply the liquid in these tiny little vials to my skin.

    Surely I'm not the only one...


    Eh, I've never seen a bottle that uses a wand, so I ignore the vial's wand. I press the vial up to my skin and run it around.

    Try C&S Dark Rose - that one's a jammy rose oud and is the standout of the C&S bunch IMHO.

    BTW - you can get samples of the C&S range from their web site.

    Bond No 9 Bleecker St layered with Everlast 1910 today. I think the lemon from Everlast goes great with Bleecker's grassy opening. I just stumbled on the idea when preparing samples of the two for a trade.

    Thanks for the suggestions, everyone.

    Today I'm testing the infamous Secretions Magnifiques. I don't find it nauseating as many reviewers have, so that's something at least. But I can't imagine anyone describing this as beautiful, or even pleasant, with a straight face either. After a sickly sweet opening I get an extremely strong metallic note that is suggestive of blood. It dries down into something vaguely floral, but that metallic note persists. This isn't something I'd even consider wearing in public. Nonetheless, I'm glad I finally got a chance to test it.

    Now looking for something that is like a higher quality, non-chemical Cool Water. Bvlgari Blu didn't cut it.

    I've been on a Guerlain Vetiver (original formulation) kick with the weather warming up the last few days. I like it in cold weather too, but it seemed appropriate yesterday, and I liked it so much I'm wearing it again. I think I'm going to snag a back up bottle on ebay before they get hard to find.

    speaking of roses (no.88) just tried again Fresh Cannabis Rose and I've got to say I'm REALLY liking this stuff. I think it's going on my exclusive list of "to buy's". will have to compare to Montale Black Oud and C&S Dark Rose first though.

    Any smell of cannabis in that one? Always wanted to try cannabis rose and cannabis santal by fresh.

    Wearing Narciso rodriguez for him EDT today.

    Wearing Cdg Avignon, received in a swap. Man, this is a dry incense - it's not far removed from what you smell in old-school Catholic events, but this also has a dry oaky component, and a strange red berry note, buried far under the surface and not at all sweet.

    I think that's the big joke, but nothing I can really detect. It's not meant to be the burning weed smell anyway, more like an earthy green planty sort of base. so basically it's like an earthy rose. Just saw Sephora has a 30ml EdP plus body cream and shower gel and stuff for $30! So I think I'll buy it instead of the 100ml for $95, plus I'd never go through 100ml of anything. I've got an extra sample of this that I'll put in the swapbox for you/anyone.

    I'm really interested in exploring that whole series actually. a local shop just got the line. Not being a church goer I'm not overly familiar with the scent or rather i don't have any memories attached to it, but I did smell Kyoto and really liked that one too upon first sniff. I love that whole smokey incensy thing. Maybe it's a whisky thing. PS - thomas - smelled some Sushi Imperiale yesterday, reminded of Ambre Narguile a lot because of the stewed fruit thing... basically the peppery cinnamon mostly.

    I love the incence series. I finished a bottle of Ouarzazate (which I think now might be my least favorite in the series) I went through a decant of Jaisalmer, and I now have a bottle of Kyoto. I've also had candles of the other two scents. The whole series is great.

    ^^Link?
    GIT today.
    Had to go with this one as well. I like it less with each wearing TBH, I think I'd go for either SMW or Bois du portugal if I bought a Creed.

    i guess I'm not exactly sure how amazon works - it would seem that they are just kind of an intermediary for other sellers, and thus they could not verify the products. Then again, I have never heard of people buying fake goods on amazon.
