    Switching things up after having worn Riverside Drive for the past 10 days or so. Today Im trying out Viktor & Rolf Antidote. I get a powdery white floral with a hint of amber. Reminds me a bit of Fleur de Male, except Antidote taps you on the shoulder while FdM smashes your face with a baseball bat.

    I know this is a little off-thread topic, but I'm trying not to flood the first page. Anyone know a place in Seattle to get non-mainstream fragrances? Or at least a place where the salespeople are more knowledgeable than at Nordstrom.

    Une Rose (Malle). This is my second time sampling this. I'm liking it quite a lot. It's much higher pitched than the other roses I have, which makes it especially nice for summer.

    First time wearing Tom Ford Oud Wood today. Don't know what to think of it. Totally different than what I've worn before (GIT, SMW, Erolfa, etc.); it was quite strong and surprising at first sniff when I first put it on, but a few hours in and I think it's mellowed out quite nicely.

    I think I like it much more than Bois du Portugal, which I also got a decant of recently.

    Today, for some strange reason I went for Kouros Fraicheur. It's good, I'll use up this bottle but probably not replace it. Of course, today my bottle of Aramis Tuscany arrives in the mail, which I'm even now tempted to spray on over the Kouros. Would be stinky. Very stinky.

    Aramis Tuscany today. It's a lot like Azzaro, except heavier on the bergamot/rosemary.

    Wearing YSL L'homme today. I keep wearing this thing and the juice just doesn't want to run out!!! Not going to buy another bottle of any juice till I, at least, finish using one.

    Diptyque Tam Dao. Not the biggest fan, it's very light and very sandalwoody, quite feminine.

    I detest Rose 31, to the point that I wonder if I got a bad batch or something. I just smells like a cheap black pepper scent, and I like black pepper usually. I don't get any rose, any complexity, any depth.

    I'm wearing Rose 31 again today. I get a very, very strong black pepper note, but it literally only lasts about five seconds at the beginning. After that it recedes into the background and the rose comes out for a bit. As it dries down the woods start to dominate.

    Today, YSL Live Jazz. Awfully similar to Platinum Egoiste, but a whole lot less lucre.

    Did Rose 31 one arm and No. 88 on the other.

    Don't like the BO note in Rose 31 in the first 2 hours. Dry-down is much more pleasant to me.

    No. 88 is still too barbershop-y for me.

    Live Jazz in the office, and finding it versatile and easy-wearing.

    I've been curious to try this one. If it's summery, then it seems like it would be very different from everything else in the Private Blend line. If it's summery and still manages to be consistent with the rest of the line, I think that would be really exciting.

    I've heard that this doesn't last long at all. Is that your experience? If so, I can't imagine paying Private Blend prices for that.

    While Azure Lime certainly seems - to me at least - to be more characteristic of what I think of as a summer fragrance in the Tom Ford line (esp compared to the ones I'm more familiar with such as Tobacco Vanille or his version of Oud Wood) it pretty much disappeared in no time. Think I'll pass on it and keep looking for grags with a bit more longevity.
