    Bond, right? There isn't some other Saks for Him that I don't know about, is there?

    Yup, Bond No 9

    Wow, I just went back and checked out your description. Rien smells completely different to me! I don't get anything like Premier Figuier at all. I don't get any fruity notes, or anything sweet for that matter. I get a very bitter, unpleasant leather. I certainly will not be buying a bottle of this!
    Leather? Wow, I wonder if I ended up with a sample of something else. DEFINITELY not leathery.

    Just checked the notes for Rien over at Basenotes:
    Incense, Rose, Leather, Iris, Cistus, Oakmoss, Black Pepper, Aldehydes, Cumin, Patchouli

    Sounds like we're describing two completely different fragrances. My description seems to make sense based on these notes.

    I've been on a carnation kick for the holidays, so rotating Caron Bellodgia, Aramis JHL, and Guerlain Terracotta Voil d'ete... three scents that really do carnation well. (Caron= Carnation with vanilla and warm spice; Guerlain= Carnation with earthy depth; JHL= Carnation with oriental/ambery notes.)

    You might be right. Definitely didn't smell like that.

    I laugh at your petty attempt and raise you:

    Strong use of unknown scents in this thread. I've never even heard of that scent! Is it made by the popular rock ensemble that also goes by the name of Creed?

    Today, a liberal application of Guerlain Heritage. I didn't intend for it to be liberal, but the sprayer on those things reminds me of a fire hose.

    Heritage, BTW, is one of those scents that I could probably let go of and not miss at all.

    Headed to Mall of America in the morning where I will amuse myself by sampling while Ms Tinto meets up with an old girlfriemd.

    Today: pulled a sample card at random from the drawer. It turned out to be Tabac Blond, vintage EdP. Much better than I remember.
