    Goutal Sables on the left hand (rum, maple syrup, honey, etc. Too sweet and single-noted for me, but "interesting"), and Divine - Homme Sage on the right (I might get this one).

    I really liked this in the small sample that I bought. I'm going to have to find a split somewhere because I'd only be able to use it for a month or two out of the year. Yesterday and today I had Malle's Vetiver Extraordinaire. I really remember liking this one but its only been meh on me the last two days. Very stinky green and the longevity has been hit and miss.

    Yesterday I think it was Live Jazz to get me through a long day of cooking, hosting, and cleaning.

    Today though, Chanel Egoiste.

    Saks for Him today
    I've got a sample of that one and looking for the right time to wear it. Bond's just got sooo many in their lineup but a few stick out.

    Today I can still smell Sables...

    Elixir des Merveilles today. It's been a little over a year since I've worn this. As with Noir de Noir, I'd forgotten how much I liked it. It's perfect for fall.

    Interesting. Where'd you come by it? Barney's?

    Fishbone sent me a sample randomly. I loved it, and the only place I could buy it was Luckyscent.

    There are some very knowledgeable people here who've been carrying on a long conversation about rose fragrances, so I think you're going to get some good feedback.

    Here's my two cents: the two fragrances you're choosing between are very, very different. Sa Majeste la Rose is absolutely beautiful. Lots of fragrances feature rose notes, but I don't know of a fragrance that's a more straightforward rose. It's very bright (though just a little bit less bright that Malle's Une Rose) and very bold. This is not a demure rose at all--not an old-lady rose. If you really love rose, then this is the scent for you. On the other hand, it is quite feminine. If that would make you feel self-conscious, then maybe Sa Majeste isn't for you.

    The most salient fact about Montale Black Aoud, at least for me, is that it's an aoud. If you're not a fan of aoud, then I don't think you'll like this, even if you love roses. I myself am not a great fan of aoud--it smells too medicinal to me. But it is one of those fragrances that I can recognize as very well crafted, even if I don't particularly enjoy it. If you do like aoud, though, then this is probably a very good option. Lots of people here really like this fragrance. It's much darker than Sa Majeste, and I would say much more masculine.

    Longevity for both of these fragrances is very good. A bit more sillage on Sa Majeste, I think.

    Ormonde Man today. Strong chocolate note and then it died down into something plasticky. Weird.

    SL Boxeuses today: the decant finally arrived, and I'm wearing it.

    Well, it's a Russian leather but not really as harsh as I'd expect. Kind of a cross between Chanel CdR, Cuiron, and S-ex. It's good and I smell myself pretty regularly, but I'm not sure how much of that stems more from the newness and anticipation.

    Body Kouros on the left wrist, Rochas Man on the right. I think they both share some sort of anise, eucalyptus, liquorice note. TBH I can't say I really like either, although I understand why they're both popular.
