    Silver Mountain Water. Smells great on my gf, but I think it'd be weird for us to have the same scent, right?

    A tiny decant of Egoiste...although the Kiehl's might lend it some much-needed interest.

    That could be interesting... sandalwood/vanilla and musk. Hmmm... let us know how it turns out. It might be awful, though, depending on what other "animalic" notes are in the Kiehl's... I can't remember off hand.

    Anyway, enjoying the dry down of opium a LOT. I think I sprayed too much on this morning, though, and have been nauseating everybody within 50 feet.

    I've been working through various sandalwoods this week. Today it's Cassewell-Massey's. Yesterday was Tam Dao and Art of Shaving. The AOS was rather soapy and died off fairly quickly. The TD was good, but not really anything I liked. This C-M has been surprisingly good, and it's got great longevity, and apparently's pretty cheap. If I liked Sandalwood this would be a winner!

    I'm still probably going to buy Tommy Bahamma at some point (nose up at you Mr. Thomas).

    I got an old bottle of the EdT and wondered what all the fuss was. Probably didn't bother to check the drydown. Once winter comes around I'll get more bold about it.

    good luck with that. Maybe it will work better on you.

    Keep in mind I mean the original Opium, not the "Pour homme." And mine is in the Eau de Parfum, which is a little "deeper."

    Oh, I have the original Opium, EdT, bottle comes from around the 80's or so: dark juice, and it was still in its box, so it ought to have been okay. Smelled nice while I paid attention. Opium pour homme I've seen at Marshalls and avoided: My own Marshall plan.

    ...

    Today - I wanted Vetiver but couldn't find it, so I went with Mouchoir de Monsieur

    Ah, gotcha. I haven't actually smelled the Opium EdT, though I'm sure it is in the same realm as the Parfum and the EdT.

    It is awfully sweet and a little heavy, but it has that wonderful, romantic, deep sort of allure. YSL, in the old days, really made some extraordinary scents. Of course, so did Dior, Chanel, etc. These days, they put out the same boring floral, sweet, or "fresh" garbage. [​IMG]

    It's hard to believe that the company that makes "Allure Sport for Men" also makes Cuir de Russie.

    Anyway, Chanel no. 5 for me today. Haven't worn this one in a while.

    OH! Thanks for reminding me I have a split of CdR that I've yet to try. Waiting for the weather to cool down...just a few more months yet.

    today, L'Artisan Tea for Two... I like it, one of the few L'Artisan's I'd probably buy a bottle of...


    then again, I have Bvlgari Black and Hermessense Ambre Narguile, so is it redundant?

    Black and Tea for Two can easily share shelf space with little overlap. I see T42 as a tobacco-first tea-based scent, while Black is powder-rubber-tea vanilla.

    I can't comment on the Hermes Amber, though.
