    I've smelled a few of the Amouages. They're like the Kilian's in that they're complex, dense, and generally don't smell cheap in any way. Are they worth it? well the only one that I smelled and immedietely liked was Jubilation 25 for men. I've got a sample I should use (I'm afraid I'm going to like it and want a bottle). I hear people like Lyric (quite floral) and that's all I remember. At least the TF bottles are available online for half the retail, whereas the Malle's, Amouage's, Kilian's, etc aren't.


    As for the Ungaro II, I haven't even worn it yet. Just sniffed it on paper, read the reviews saying it was a masterpiece, and figured, WTH it's worth the risk. But Jicky was the first thing that came to mind. I'll wear it sometime this week and give you an update.

    Oh... and I ordered a decant of the newest Serge Lutens: Boxeuses. Apparently it's a plummy woody leather.
    Did you get it from TPC or Lucky Scent? Post up a review when it arrives plz.

    happy to say I just acquired a bottle of Ungaro II (NIB 75ml $30!). At first sniff reminds me of Jicky. Lavender, Civet, and Vanilla.

    Thinking of you Rach!


    today - sample of Amouage Dia for Men. Nothing I'm impressed with.


    I love Ungaro. Its amazing they made such complex scents back them compared to what department store scents are not.

    Sporting some Rive Gauche. Top notes are a bit strong but the base is really great.

    I love this one too! Moss Breches and Purple Patchouli were the best of the whole Private Blend line IMO, and they discontinued both. I'm now trying to acquire as much as I can of both without going broke.

    I'm wearing Secretions Magnifiques today.

    Neither, it's part of a bottle split on another board. Awfully expensive but at least I'm not dropping major cash for something I may hate. Will review once it comes in.

    This morning the grey in my hair became more noticeable, so I went with Habit Rouge.

    Hermes un Jardin en Mediterrenne. Not bad. Heavy on the plum opening but the dry down wasn't all that spectacular. Sort of a plum tree smell.

    Today, a damp, gloomy day thus far but the sun is peeking out from behind the clouds. L'Instant pour Homme for me.

    Today GIT. First time fully wearing this actually. Not the best longevity. I'll try again soon (well, I do have a bottle to get through).
