I'm wearing my new bottle of Angel Men today and I really like it.
love that fragrance
Puredistance - M.
How fast does parfum, especially extrait de parfum, evaporate? They've sent me the Puredistance - M decant in an atomizer - I don't want to spray it as it would be way too intense. When opening, I spilled out half of the decant . So I did not close it completely, just laid the atomizer on top as a lid. Today it was only like 1/3 of what it was last time. Is this possible? It didn't really smell of the scent in the room I stored it...
I sealed it with scotch tape now. Such a pity, it really is a nice scent.
PdN Le Temps d'une Fete. This is really much more of a spring and summer fragrance, but I felt like wearing it anyway. It does smell a bit like spring outside, so that's something at least.
I suspect it was the ethanol that evaporated out. Was the color darker than it was before? As far as the quality of the perfume after leaving it open you run the theoretical risk of oxidation of some of the components as well as evaporation of some of the lighter molecules.
Yes sir! Such a bummer. Well, now it's even more intense. But not that more given that two thirds evaporated... Not recommended.
Today Puredistance - M, again.
Found my decant of moss breeches for today, was a nice surprise since last time I wore it I remembered that I didn't like it at all
Got the winter sample from LS to get some exposure to cool weather scents. Today is CdG Eau de Parfum- making me nauseous. Yesterday was Isabey L'Ambre de Carthage which I found really good- can't imagine something better but still a total newb working my way around.
Idole de Lubin for me today. This is a very good cool weather scent--resinous, boozy, and spicy. I'm curious about the new edp version.
Got to test three different ones today.
Givenchy Xeryus Rouge
Kouros and the vetiver were both interesting to test out. The Xeryus was too similar to my Creed Original Santal (sweet wood) to merit a purchase. But still looking for a greener scent to round out the collection.
I'm wearing a sample of Bois Morocain by Tom Ford and I'm really enjoying it. When I was around 7-8 years old, my Dad found a pine stump left from an ancient and long-deceased tree in the woods when we were out cutting trees for firewood for the winter. All the soft wood around the stump rotted away and left a huge heart of hard resinous wood that extended three feet into the ground, which us three sons dug around late into the evening to allow my Dad to pull it out with his truck and a chain. We brought it home and put it under the deck and chopped away 1/4" x 6" segments to use as "rich pine" - starters for the fireplace. To this day there is still a segment of that pine that is used to light fires at my parent's home. This is what that scent reminds me of - the resin, the bark of the pine, the smell of the grease on the chain, and the smell of the clean air in the woods.
