    Domenico Caraceni 1913 today having bought it blind, and it's probably the first that I didn't regret. I get rose, dark fruit, and wood. Very elegant and seems like the perfect scent to wear with a suit. I can understand the hype on basenotes, especially with its limited availability.

    I hadn't heard of this one, but based on the notes and the reviews it sounds pretty intriguing. I'll have to get a sample. Do you get the tobacco note that's supposed to be there?

    I'm wearing Rose Poivree today.

    Riverside Drive today

    There did seem to be a bit of tobacco now that you mention it, but it isn't among the more obvious notes to me. I'll still have to wear it a few more times to get good feel for it. Also, the current weather (80+ degrees) seems to mess with my smell. It's almost as if my sweat is diluting the fragrance or something. I'll throw some in the swap box the next time it comes my way.

    Wasn't antirabbit a fan of this? I remember the name.

    I tried searching the archives but didn't see a post with him referencing it, but I've only started following this thread this year.

    I noticed Luckyscent sells out of it pretty fast. I bought mine from www.firstinfragrance.com out of Germany. If you buy it, select Euro as the currency and you get a better price compared to USD. Shipping is steep and offsets the cheaper price, but if you buy two bottles, (which I did), you end up with the same all-in cost as having bought two at the Luckyscent price. I figured that if I didn't like it, I'd easily be able to sell the bottles at cost. They don't deduct VAT, but they are planning on changing that. If you order, you can request three samples which were about 2-3ml in size. My order was processed promptly, but the actual shipping time was three weeks for whatever reason.

    Today is another Hermes day, Un jardin apres la mousson

    I went with Jardin Sur Le Nil today. In my opinion this is the best of the Jardin series--it's the perfect summer fragrance. I wear Jardin Apres La Mousson pretty regularly, but I have to wait about a half hour into the drydown before I really like it. I've said this before here, but the opening smells cheap to me, like a watermelon Jolly Rancher candy. Once that phase has passed, I think it's quite a good fragrance, though still not as good as Sur Le Nil.

    Sampled L'Air du Desert Marocain today. Yuck!!!! I haven't been this repulsed by a scent since Secretions Magnifiques (no offense L'Incandescent [​IMG]) Felt like a dirty, yet expensive, body odor. Someone tell me that it was just the opening and that it evolves to something more pleasant. I immediately scrubbed it off and didn't give it the chance to find out.

    Not a big fan of the stuff either. Perfumer Andy Tauer's best selling fragrance by a long shot. To me it smells like a spice rack and not much else. Interesting that cologne aficionado and writer/critic Luca Turin wore it as his SOTD for his wedding a few years ago.

    I like L'AdDM but it's a bit strong for me so I pretty much never wear it. I only have a decant but I've barely made a dent in it. I think it's a lovely spicey amber but it's one of those scents that never seems to dry down on me - it just blares on at maximum volume, even it barely dab it on. I guess I like it but don't enjoy wearing it. I do like it on my girl.

    I'm wearing Secretions Magnifiques today, not because boo mentioned it, but because I'm spending all day at my office alone getting work done. [​IMG]

    FWIW (probably not a lot), Secretions got five stars from Luca Turin in Perfumes: The Guide. I also noticed that L'AdDM got five stars from Tania Sanchez. I might have to get a sample.
