    I could use some help from you guys.

    Could you recommend some good winter fragrances, right now my collection is Creed - Millesime imperial, Creed - Green Irish Tweed , Creed - Aventus & Guerlain l'instant. I need one last that will be my winter signature.


    I think TF Amber Absolute is perfect for winter. Kouros is excellent too, but maybe not as a signature scent.

    I didn't have my date last night, so I didn't ruin it with Secretions Magnifiques. It is going to be tonight instead. I'm wearing Chanel No. 5, which I don't think has ever ruined a date.

    Today, I decided on a full wearing of some Ormonde Woman in the parfum strength. I thought it would be similar to Ormonde Man, but I was wrong. I think I like Ormonde Man better.

    So far the Santa Maria Novella scents have been a disappointment.
    I can't say I've explored the line too far, but I've got a good decant of Melograno, which I like. It's sort of a soapy powdery almost dry bitter floral. like a bar of soap, or the pith of a pomegranate (apparently). It's a little weird, and somewhat lady-like, but I like it in the spring on cool mornings. I've hear the other standouts are Nostalgia (something like Bvlgari Black), P'eau D'Spainia? and Tobacco Toscano (seemed like a light version of TFTV to me).



    Today it's Bond #9 - New York Fling. Very faint sillage and longevity is ok so far after 2-3 hours. Very uninteresting, not bad, but just plain boring. It's a slightly fruity floral, very forgettable.

    Rose 31 for me today. I'm only smelling the dirty rose-ness so far. Will have to wear it for awhile to see if anything else develops in it.

    Wore this again today, and got a nice compliment! I must say this fragrance has certainly grown on me. Every time I smell the bottle my heart jumps.

    Ordered some Black Tourmaline this morning. The descriptions of it sound quite compelling.

    Is that Bond new? The SMN's have been meh at best. The Melograno, Toscano, Eva, and Musk were all ok but none of them really stood out as being worth purchasing. Nostalgia wasn't anything like Bvlgari Black IMHO. I didn't get the P'eau to try.

    hmmm, you may wind up liking it, but I tried it and it did nothing for me. It's a dry, dry, dry, cold, smoky, unfriendly scent. Interesting as an intellectual exercise, but even the folks I know who tested it and then bought bottles found that they never never wear it.

    Today, Chanel Pour Monsieur.

    I like the name and the concept. I'm just sort of exploring things at the moment.

    Today - Tom Ford Moss Breches. This works really well on me, i think. I have yet to smell the 'satyrs dancing in a midnight grove' in it, but it sure is nice. Kind of a blue-green-gold aura coming off my arm. !

    Don't think it's a new bond, I've probably had the sample for a year or more...

    oops, I said Bvlgari Black but meant Ford Tuscan Leather meets Fahrenheit.

    This is one that I've been meaning to try for a long time, but for whatever reason I haven't. What's your opinion of it?

    I love this one--I've got to acquire a new bottle, especially since it's been discontinued. I get a very strong color association with this one, but not TintoTerra's: I get very very dark brown that is just barely distinguishable from black.

    Kiton Napoli for me today. (That's the blue one.) I love this one for spring. It's obviously not spring, but it feels like it here in STL.

    Santal Noble, for the first time in a few years. I had a few drops left in a decant and, my god, I forget how powerful this stuff is. I'm freaking bathing in fecal, sweet, dusty, sandlewood. It smells great, too, but it's a big one. Not sure I could do this too often.
