    it was good! this was the third one we did, there were around ten to fifteen of us there and we all just sort of chatted away about random stuff, not all even fragrance related. there was some swapping of samples and other stuff. so yeah, fun. I'm planning on doing another one for around april/may.
    Cool. Nobody really gives a shit about fragrances down here. The Nieman Marcus counter ended up sending away most of the good shit because it never sold. [​IMG]

    Do you have any experience with Clive Christian C?
    only a sniff... so I can't comment too much. My impression about his frags are that tehy're pretty complex, well made, but of course quite expensive. When something's $250-300+ I'm rarely overly impressed since there are so many options that are $150-200 that are excellent. The only one of his I quite liked was the X.

    I just noticed that there were a few Basenoters in the area so i spoke with the store, sent out PM's and showed up. I won't say it was easy to organize, but it's not that much work, and you may be surprised who's around. Ask the Neiman people if there's some big sort of launch for anything coming up and then pm various basenotes/MUA/badgerandblade, etc people.


    Today - A*Men. I absolutely hated, I mean hated, this when I smelled it and tested it but something about the patchouli+tar sort of rawer notes makes me like it in the end. I'm going to try giving a light application of this for sweetness and then trying something leathery/smokey to try balance it out more.

    No, sorry, only a decant. [​IMG]

    It actually got a lot better in the dry-down, but it's still not for me.

    Do you have any experience with Clive Christian C?

    I just tried this for the first time a few days ago. I was amazed how much I liked it. It's extremely spicy on top--saffron and clove were the notes I noticed most. As it dries down, it remains spicy, but a hint of sweet vanilla emerges too. I can't justify $375, or whatever NM is charging for it, but I was really tempted. (My brother actually offered to buy it for my birthday, but I couldn't ask anyone to spend that kind of money on a fragrance!) You should really give it a try.

    I wore Tom Ford Extreme today. I often go a long time without wearing it, and I forget just how much I like it.

    Wore Tauer L'air du desert morocain today.

    Ordered Le Labo Poivre 23 today, and was going to get Gaiac 10 as well, but PC was sold out. If anyone knows where I can get a decent sized decant send me a pm please.
