    speaking of which, I have sniffed the Cuir de Russie several time and even though I have some Knize, and I'm not even much of a leather fan... I'm still very very tempted to get a 75ml of this one. I immediately liked it.

    Equipage for me today. I haven't worn this in a long, long time; I've got a bottle that's very nearly empty, so I've been hesitant to use any. It's exactly how I remember it: an old school, Sean-Connery-as-James-Bond elegant masculine. It strikes me as exactly the kind of fragrance that Baron would wear, based on the pics I've seen in WAYWRN. I'm not sure I'm the kind of guy who can pull it off, but I'm enjoying it a lot nonetheless.

    I do like that one, though I don't wear it a whole lot. I put it in the same category as Jicky EdT/Mouchoir de Monsieur, Caron PUH, even Tabac Orginal - clean, powdery, a little old fashioned and well groomed. I think Equipage is the most modern of all those - it's less powdery and more of a carnation scent.

    Today I'm wearing Rive Gauche - the original from the 70's. I got this bottle for my wife a few years ago. This is really pretty butch for a classic feminine. It reminds me a bit of Aramis 900.

    The longevity of M is really good. I applied it (a little too much) like 14 hours ago, it still is pretty intense. Anyone else here tried out M?

    You will not regret getting Cuir de Russie. I think it may be my favorite scent. I like it much more than Sycamore, not that Sycamore isn't great.

    God damn it, how many times do I have to keep preaching this - get the Cuir de Russie pure parfum. Its worth EVERY PENNY. That's how much better it is than the already great EdP.

    ah, that came from you! I knew someone had pushed that one. I'll stop by the Chanel store sometime and sniff it out and compare.

    Can vouch for the parfum's superiority.

    Some sad news from the world of perfumery: Jean-Francois Laporte--founder of both L'Artisan Parfumeur and Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier--has died. I'm sure some of you know the history better than I do, but my understanding is that L'Artisan played an absolutely indispensable role in the creation of the niche perfume business.

    I'm wearing AdP Colonia today.

    EDIT: Of course AdP Colonia has poor longevity, so when it was gone I replaced it with Citizen Queen. A bit chaotic at the top, with different notes fighting it out. But the middle and base are very nice, with labdanum and rose emerging as the most prominent notes. That's a strange combo, but they blend very nicely.

    yeah I heard about Laporte over on BaseNotes. He also started Maitre Parfumier et Gantier. Some pretty serious industry impact there with L'Artisan.
