    I was inspired by SpooPoker to wear M7 today

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

    Interesting. I don't get any chocolate at all. It struck me as more of a peppery juniper scent. Then again, my decant was a freebie as a part of a trade, and maybe something was wrong with it.

    Not the scent I want to smell on a woman...

    I also got peppery/woody with a prominent hemlock note. Said sample came from OJ, though.

    Quite similar to Bel Ami, IMHO.

    I have it on again today and I'm getting the peppery musky smell as well. Might have been the SPF I had on yesterday. Oddly, it smells much better today than yesterday. Who knows. [​IMG]

    Today: Chanel Egoiste, from an older bottle, around 2002. A little richer, heavier on the sandlewood/rose/tobacco. I'm not sure whether I prefer the older or newer version.

    Note to self: Antaeus makes for a lousy hangover scent. Ugh!
    crazy Tuesday nights? [​IMG]


    Today - Canali Black Diamond. Loaded to the hilt with ingredients, but the overall vibe it pleasant. Not too unique, but could in theory be the only frag one owns.

    I have to admit, until now I had never even thought to classify scents into hangover and non-hangover categories! That information should be included in Turin and Sanchez's Perfume Guide.

    I'm wearing Muscs Koublai Khan for the second time. The first time, I underapplied just to be safe. This time I applied more liberally and noticed a lot that I didn't notice last time. I really, really like this one!

    Is this where you wake up with last night's Antaeus, or apply new in the hung-over morning?

    If it's the latter, I'm sure ELdO/CB/Demeter does up something that smells like a Bloody Mary.

    ...

    Today, wearing Chanel Cuir de Russie: it's as good as te hype, and I'm only left to wonder how much better the parfum and vintage versions are.

    but on one wrist I'm wearing SL Boxeuses, and they're not at all similar like I'd at first thought.

    Okay, Cuir de Russie has taken on a dry, austere tone - which is befitting since it's really an iris scent with a leather edge.

    Boxeuses, however, has since morphed into a rich, sweet, plummy-spicy leather. A little bit of vanilla-amber-custardy sweetness in the base. Hope it sticks around for a while.

    It was the latter, and I'll have to look into it!

    M7 today. Actually the booziness on this one could have served as "hair of the dog" for yesterday.
