    Got in my box from Aedes so its sample time!!!

    First up - Amouage Dia - holy shit this is potent. Its so fucking strong that its masking all but one scent and I can't really make out what that is. Despite that, its smells really good.

    Went with Tobacco Vanille today. I had previously decided that I didn't like it for being too feminine, but now it's starting to grow on me. The honey/tobacco reminds me of By Kilian Back to Black, though BtB is pretty linear, whereas in TV, the honey seems stronger in the opening and the tobacco seems to emerge later.

    I find it rather demure?? Oh wait...women's or men's? Women's...yes, strong. Men's, not so much.

    Testing Dior Mitzah today. Good alternative to Ambre Sultan.

    ^^ +1. I found the men's Dia rather... dull? I'm sure there was a lot going on but somehow it was just completely uninspiring.

    If that's the one I think it was...it reminded me of a cross between PdN Baladin and EL Azuree, but properly-balanced and not blaringly loud.

    Pretty sure it was the men's but not positive as its not specifically labeled either way.

    It wasn't dull so much as it was...

    This. Also, fixed for accuracy.

    Tried Chanel Sycome today at their NYC store. Smells solely like cedar and vetiver. It is nice and not overly complex. It has the perfect amount of sweetness imo. Overall a nice fragragrance.

    Twill Rose today. This is my third or fourth time trying this one, and I'm getting to like it more and more. I hadn't really noticed how green the rose was until Dane pointed it out. (If a rose is less green than Une Rose, I tend not to think of it as really green.) I also applied it a little more generously today, so that may have helped.

    Eh, so I screwed the pooch and got the samples mixed. The heavy hitter yesterday was EPIC Man, not DIA. Today, I'm trying DIA.

    What's a "green" rose?
