    I don't have much of a sense of accountability either!

    SL - Arabie. Liked it better than last time, I became more acustomed to the notes.

    L'Inc, you remind me that I actually sampled that one (Creed's Fleur de Bulgarie ), but I didn't see it in the last few days. I'll search it and wear it tomorrow, I just hope the rose isn't too forward even if the name suggests so. By the way, don't you think Ambre Sultan is too sweet?

    Ambre Sultan certainly is sweet. I don't find it too sweet, but I can see how someone else might.
    Fleurs de Bulgarie is a soapy rose. The soapiness comes from ambergris, which is even more prominent in this than it is in other Creeds. The rose is quite prominent. (For me, a rose note can never be too far forward! That's why I love Fleur de The Rose Bulgare so much.)

    been about 2 hours, I really like the sweet woodiness of it, almost a bit too sweet. The dryness works really well but I don't think the scent has evolved, it just continues to smell woody and sweet, very masculine.

    Alexander McQueen Kingdom. Whenever I start to feel cynical about the world, I can always remind myself that, for a brief moment at least, a fragrance like Kingdom was marketed and sold in it. A world with Kingdom in it can't be that bad. :)

    I think a lot of perfumes "suggest" that; Kingdom does more than suggest it!

    Creed - Fleurs de Bulgarie. I thought it would be a little more straight-forward rose. Or probably I just have a limited perception of rose. Do you know the rose scent of L'Occitane, L'Inc? My grandma has it, and that's what I think of when I think of roses. That is not to say that I prefer it to Creed's. Just a different kind of rose I guess.
    I prefer the drydown, when amber and musc mix with the rose. It's a decent scent, I'm just not that into rose scents yet. I like it better than New York Oud though, which again is another type of rose scent.
