    Today some Guerlain Heritage. A decant from the swap-box I jsut got round to trying and I can say WOW, I actually like this stuff!
    Does anyone know if Geurlain has a signature note or accord they use in everything? it somehow reminded me of shalimar or some of their others... something sort of plasticky. In my mind I see a smooth white hard horizontal line.

    For a long, long time the signature - called Guerlainade - was a part of most compositions, and iirc it's a vanilla-based composition, a bit animalic (castoreum), and herbal. Recent compositions seem to be diverging from this, though.

    Mmm, very interesting. Thanks! It would seem the more recent ones just aren't the same. Here's to buying vintage [​IMG]

    Yeah, I loaded up on a few vintage Chanels and now seem to be in SABLE territory, particularly since I hardly wear them.

    Today, speaking of Guerlain...Habit Rouge.

    Today: Knize Ten, applied sparingly.

    FWIW: my first decant of K10 was a bit different from what I now have, and even then between the bottle and the two decants, they aren't quite on the same page all the time. I will say that they're close enough though. The first time I tried K10, it was suffocation by big, powdery carnations, which I still notice today, but the amber and leather notes help to balance it out.

    Creed GIT [SPLIT] is on for a second try. I'll be picking up the flacon sometime in the next few days so that we don't have a repeat of it selling out.
