Creed - Millesime
I'm warming up to Bottega Veneta- now I think of it as a a warm and cozy hay and suede.
My experience has been similar to yours. The first time I wore it I thought meh, this is okay, but completely unremarkable. Then I wore it a few more times and started to appreciate it more. It's not that I noticed anything I had missed the first time. I just came to enjoy it more. Warm and cozy are exactly the right descriptions, IMO.
EDIT: I've been sampling the feminine fragrances from Divine lately. Today it's L'Ame Soeur. Lots of aldehydes at the top, along with rose and jasmine. I wasn't a big fan at first--I thought it was just a more market friendly version of ELdO's Vraie Blonde. But now I'm liking it quite a bit, thanks mostly to the rose. My favorite of the Divine feminines is still L'Inspiratrice, which is just wonderful.
That captures it pretty well. I'll probably want Timbuktu soon, but I'm looking forwards to BV's warm and cozy tomorrow morning- its been that kind of week.
Borneo 1834. More wearable than I remembered. I'm going to put this into the rotation.
Creed - Millesime Imperial again. Quite liked it, though the longevity seemed pretty weak. However, the atomizer of my sample didn't work perfectly the first time I used it so I might have taken too few.
I've tried to like this, but I just can't. I find it too high-pitched and abrasive. Longevity is indeed poor, but in my experience that was a good thing!
I'm wearing Divine by Divine today. (Not to be confused with Eau Divine by Divine.) Wow, this stuff is amazing! At the top I get a rich, buttery tuberose, which is a note that almost always makes me happy. Shortly thereafter some other floral notes emerge, specifically rose and gardenia. But what makes Divine really great is the big, ripe peach note. To my nose, this is an old-school French feminine with a modern twist. It is quite feminine, so I think a lot of people here would shy away from it. I think rach would love it, though. (I'd wager big money that Rambo would find it unwearable.)
Tea for Two today
Longevity was a little better yesterday, but I can understand you. Don't really like it anymore.
Today, Creed - Silver Mountain Water. Applied 15 minutes ago, I like so far.
I agree with you completely. Unfortunately, I found it's longevity to be very good.
Today, Cuir de Russie. I've always really liked this scent, but now I seem to absolutely love it. Turin's review about it being luxury in a bottle is spot on.
L'Artisan - L'Eau d'Ambre Extreme.
Extreme? Nice all the same for an Autumn morning.
L'Artisian L'Eau du Navigateur, because it is the weekend and I need it to be.
About Creed - Millesime Imperial: I find I like it on 100 degree days when I have to be outside and it is play time. Otherwise I just don't wear it much.
