    Chanel PM - (I have come to realize it is very easy to find here in Canada as opposed to the US. Let this be a first. I find its longevity to be quite poor so far; I guess it's there, but it definitely sits close to the skin. I'm totally a chypre guy, I just wish I could find one that is a bit more of a powerhouse. Suggestions? Tiffany? PdN New York? I have some of the AdPs and adore them.)

    In other news, UPS called me today and told me that I owe $35 C.O.D. on a $40 bottle of L'Instant that just arrived. Unbelievable.


    Consider Tiffany for Men and also Givenchy III. PdN New York is quite good as well, but it gets powdery on me and the Mrs. cannot refrain from snide commentary.

    Also, sorry to hear about your shipping experience. Shipping scents to Canada gives me the heebie-jeebies, frankly, I worry that the RCMP's going to show up at my door.

    Today, Guy Laroche Horizon. From the house that brought you Drakkar Noir (snicker), Horizon is the follow-up to the iconic 80's powerhouse, and it's actually not bad. A pleasant grapefruit-ginger-floral that doesn't promise much and doesn't really disappoint. A placeholder in the ol' herd.

    Terre d'Hermès today. I tried Aqua di Gio the other day and it immediately gave me a headache. Dane implanted this auto-suggestion[​IMG]

    Everytime I see that name I read it as Jerkoff. Today - Started with the new MMM. Kind of faded fast so I didn't get a good handle on it. Then, while at the mall, I snagged a few sprays of VC&A Cologne Noir. This isn't bad at all. Can't really get a handle on the scent but its overall "sexy".

    Early this morning I applied a sample of Dior Leather Oud and thought it remarkably like Oud 27, maybe a tad richer and fuller. Like, and worth buying when my Oud 27 runs out.

    After a morning run and shower, I went with Pampelune. Unfortunatey, the Dior hasn't washed off my skin yet, so it's been grapefruit/leather/oud, which at this point is better than it sounds.

    Trying Shaal Nur today. I have such affinity for woodsy orientals, so of course I love this. Much smoother opening than Etro Sandalo. Reminds me I also want to try L'Air du Desert Marocain, Fumerie Turque, and Jubilation XXV. Anybody from the recent Jubilation XXV split want to sell me a couple of ml's?
