    put in my $0.02

    I fucking hate Creed. I can't read anymore threads talking about Creed...how Creed is expensive, how they want more Creed. Fuck off. Creed smells like balls. [​IMG]

    *end of rant*

    Wearing Givenchy Vetyver today.

    wearing Amouage Gold today - this smells like what my mother would wear. something in here's making me feel a little sick. Perfect for someone, but not me.

    Miss Dior for me today. Despite the name, I really suggest you guys find a sample and try it. NOTE: this isn't "miss dior cherie," but the original one. It's a very unique sort of oriental chypre-ish with a lovely smack of funk underneath. Think Shalimar meets Givenchy III with a hint of mouchoir thrown in for good measure. THOUGH, for full disclosure, whatever the funk is in the Dior is not civet...

    Yesterday - the Cupcake favorite Elixer des Marvelous. I got a little honey and vanilla but nothing overwhelming. Is the EdT version any different?

    They're pretty different to my nose: Equipage is more of a powdery thing, while Heritage is a big brassy loudmouth scent. I think there's a big ginger note to Heritage, also found in Caron Third Man.

    I didn't get powdery from Equipage. Floral yes, but not powdery. So far the biggest powder scents I have tried were C***d VÃ[​IMG]tiver (1948) and Penhaligon's English Fern. I liked English Fern well into the drydown after the powder abated, but it did take a long time. I thought C***d VÃ[​IMG]tiver was nasty. Baby powder is not a pleasant scent to me.

    Terre d'Herme today.

    Wearing Ungaro II again today. I tried to wear Ungaro III, but I was thwarted by my illiteracy. :-(

    Hmmm, I was considering trying it again to test, but somewhere in the heartnotes I get a tad queasy. Not worth dealing with again.

    Um, aren't the bottles different-colored? [​IMG]

    Actually, one baguette strapped to each side, and a salad roll on the front. A makeshift helmet/lunch arrangement during the Egyptian revolution.

    The bottles that Ungaro uses are indeed different-colored. The bottles that I have them in, however, are exactly the same color. The only difference is in the labels, which I proved unable to read correctly.

    tried that out yesterday and just like all the other creeds, it disappears off my body within an hour tops. Thats the absolute last creed I even bother sampling.

    also tried the John Varvatos Vintage yesterday, and really liked it initially but never took note of it after the initial spraying, so :shrug:

    back to the tuscan leather for me and I think I'm sticking to that as an every day scent. only reason I'm mentioning it is I switched to some sandlewood soap and the tuscan has taken on a whole nother incarnation. I can't describe it other than its much less coke-y.

    hmm, what do you think of that? I'd heard raves about the tobacco element.

    ...

    Today: Serge Lutens Boxeuses. A sheer, transparent, fruity Russian leather that's not very Russian or Leathery. It IS nice, but considering that it's a non-export bell jar...once my decant is finished, I won't replenish.
