    So Heliotrope = no go. Smell went from almond cookie, which wasn't too bad, to marzipan cookie. I hate marzipan cookies. Blech.

    Are you sampling the whole Etro line? Have you tried Shall Nur yet? I haven't, but I'm curious about that one.

    I'm wearing ELdO Rossy de Palma today.

    Yeah they sent me a sample of just about everything a while back so I figured I'd finally give them a try. I've tried Shall Nur and its a nice incense/vanilla scent if I remember correctly. I've still got some of my sample left. Will report back.

    anyone care to answer a cologne rookies question...Ive noticed 2 sprays seems to be the acceptable amount to put on, but where would be the most "effective" place to spray? I usually spray on the neck out of sheer habit but I see posts about applying to the wrist.

    I like to spray directly into my asshole, then eat a large meal of fibrous foods. Lots of ruffage is preferred.

    Depends on the scent and how much you want to project. Pulse points are considered good application spots as they're supposed to be warmer areas on the body. The neck area near the ears is sometimes a good application spot for the clubs, as the chick you're trying to mack is probably screaming in your ear due to the horrific bass laden hip hop or electronica that's modifying your DNA from the vibration.

    It depends on the effect you want: Under clothing (i.e., chest) when you don't want to project much, on bare uncovered skin (wrist) when you want it to be noticeable. On clothing when you want to slow the progression down (since body heat tends to make the oils evaporate a bit faster).

    In addition to what others have said, I think it also depends somewhat on who you're wearing the fragrance for. I put my fragrance on the top side of my wrist, just because I like to have easy access to the smell for myself. If it's on your neck, that's obviously harder to do.

    I'm wearing Encens et Bubblegum again today. This is quickly becoming one of my favorites. In my last mini-review, I mentioned that there's not really any bubblegum in the scent. I might have been wrong about that, though. There is a smell that one could associate with the stick of gum that used to come in packages of baseball cards. But I'm sure I'd never pick up on that association if Bubblegum weren't in the name.

    If the next time you wear it you tell me it smells like BIG LEAGUE CHEW then I'm in.

    So, I was right. Wore Shaal Nur today. Kind of a light vanilla/incense vibe. Nice, probably not worth a full buy, maybe a decant for a summer evening. If I was looking for sexy vanilla I'd probably stick with Bvlgari Black.

    BTW - I wanted to put in a good word for LAFCO NY. They just sent me a boat load of Santa Maria Novella samples and threw in extra for free. Same thing they did last time when I ordered Lorenzo Villoresi samples. Excellent service over there.
