    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.

    That makes sense. Dia Man happens to be one of my favs...classy...subtle...like a very expensive rendition of Declaration's cardamom note.

    Testing more of the new Dior line today...Leather Oud is growing on me! One of the better ouds on the market today methinks.

    Went to Bergdorf today and tried some fragrances to my heart's content. Tried Oud Wood and didn't really like it... I really liked the Kilian fragrances I tried. Perhaps it's because I haven't tried many floral fragrances for men. The two I tried were very floral but really high quality. Liasons Dangerous is really nice. It's hard for me to pinpoint the notes. Prelude to Love was gorgeous. Smells like orange blossoms and green tea. Really lovely. Anyone have experiences with Kilian?

    Liaisons Dangereuse is my favourite in the line. A nice chewy rose.

    Prelude to Love is basically Mugler Cologne.

    If you like them...I bought the 4x15ml refills for less than $100 ($80ish I think?)

    Platinum Egoiste - Liked it but didn't love it. Tenacious stuff.

    Thanks for this! I found 1oz for 70 bucks. Not too bad.

    ^ looking forward to getting a pm... :)


    today - Silver Scent by Bogard from a sample. blech. citrus, herbs, chemicals, and vanilla. My consolation with blind testing is it usually dies off quickly but this one is rather persistent.


    PS - guys, if anyone is interested in some of the ELDO (Etat Libre D'Orange) frags, i can get a few of the bottles for a good price... details here. let me know asap and if you're interested I'll cut you a better deal as SF my e-buddies.

    Bois de Violette for me today...in anticipation for our giant dump of snowing happening later today.

    What does BdV have to do with snow you ask? Nothing. Just whining.

    Today - Fahrenheit 32 - Really nice! Vanilla + orange actually helps round out the original, which I find a little too raw

    ^^ if you have Guerlains Vetiver in a clear non-frosted bottle then I think that's the EdC version, maybe the Extreme? Or if it's the non-ridged bottle, just a hard square with a square inset like the HR bottle if it's the one I'm picturing, then you probably have some vintage juice. Harder to find but still out there.
