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

    Got it in a swap from someone who had bucketloads of the stuff. He threw it in as an extra.

    dammit - I got some samples from Sephora (got this gift card to burn) and settled Narciso Rodriguez Essence, and gave it a good spray. Jeebus, it's a steam-clean floral, very light and womanly. Why did I apply this crap at the office, of all places? dammit dammit dammit.

    I'm smelling very manly today, with Azzaro PH. One of the few scents I have that I doubt could work on a woman.

    It was there, in a batch of five different samples, so I assumed (since all the rest of the samples were masculines) that it too was masculine. First mistake. Then I sprayed it right on me without trying the old kleenex routine. Second mistake. Then I thought - that first spray didn't seem very substantial, I'll spray again. Third mistake. [​IMG]

    I'm still on the search for my signature fragrance. I tried two spritzes of Tobacco Vanille again today. I happened to be looking for other fragrances and smelled another vanilla fragrance. Holy crap it smelled so terrible in comparison. TV is really nice, especially for winter.

    I also happened to be at Macy's and smelled J'adore... the fragrance of a love during my time in Japan. It's amazing how a scent can bring back memories and feelings.

    Womanity again today.

    Also, I gave some good friends of mine a bottle of ELdO Secretions Magnifiques for Christmas. They both liked it very much. One of the friends said it was his favorite fragrance. The other said she didn't understand what all the controversy was about; she thought it was quite pleasant.

    Went sampling around the mall today and after smelling some boring and standard frags, I came across a Bloomingdales that carried Antaeus and I must say it was the best thing I've tried in awhile. I can see why Thomas likes it so much. It even impressed Ms Tinto. Will acquire.

    Yesterday was Guerlain Vetiver, day before Tom Ford Grey Vetiver. I think I prefer the latter of the two.
