    Swung by Saks yesterday and picked up samples of the new Maison Martin Margiella and Prada Amber Homme Intense. Wearing the Prada today - I think its a winner. Big vanilla opening but dries down to amber and sweetness. Very nice.

    Diptyque Philosykos

    I loved the Auod Lime and the Sables and wanted to like Philosykos, but after trying it today the scent just didn't seem to last. I'm thinking I'll get the Auod Lime now and Sables when it starts getting cooler later in the year, unless there's others I should sample first.


    Try Creed Orange Spice. Not floral, stinky, and huge longevity. I could detect it 24 hrs after applying. Smells pretty good too.

    I've actually been debating picking up a bottle of the OS...

    Rancid stink... or what?

    I want to hate it but after hour or so I like it.

    Today: Monsieur de Givenchy. I like it in a classical sense, and it IS nice, but it's not compelling to me. In other words, I hardly wear it without some sort of prompting.

    Bitter orange stink. I wore it to work and nobody said anything. It demands your attention. I bought 2.5ml from a guy on Cyrstal Flacon, but I am pretty sure Perfumed Court has it as well.

    NGELIQUES SOUS LA PLUIE today. Another wonderful dreamy scent by JC Ellena for Fredric Malle. I am a sucker for biting green scents like quality vetiver, but in this case it is angelique. Why does JC insist his scents can last only 30 mins? It is so short lived I can't find a base note [​IMG]

    At least it lasts a long time. Depends - do you want to smell like dried fruit in the heat?

    What are some good niche, citrus-based fragrances?

    Anglia Perfumery Spiced Lime and Strand - good price for quality!

    I like that one as well. Monsieur Balmain is niche and can be had for $30. It's a long lasting lemon scent.
