1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    that's kind of vague. do you want to smell like you just rolled around in a pile of leaves? or do you want to smell like you just rolled around in a pile of pussy?

    I've been wondering, Rambo, how much do you charge per hour? I was thinking it was cheaper hiring you to grab samples than ordering them from STC. :laugh:

    Today, it's been Czech & Speake No. 88. An interesting scent. Great longevity. The later drydown is all (citrusy) geranium. I'll have to revisit this one once or thrice since the opening/mid-section is more sophisticated.

    If you want to put me up I'm perfectly willing to work for room and board. Got 10 more tonight.

    tonight's scent - Diptyque 34 St. Germain. I was really impressed and I don't remember liking this quite so much.

    So Rambo, how many have you collected over the past 48 hours?

    Today: Kerosene's Copper Skies. Finally I figured out what the pungent note is: Incense. It's a spicy tobacco incense amber. Feels like there's too much fighting for room here.

    Thomas, did you get a sample of the Kerosene online, own one, or get it from somewhere in Houston?

    I have a decant that I received in a swap from a friend on FB. Are you interested in trying it?

    That's alright - Kerosene seems like a pretty small and limited brand so I was only wondering. Thank you, though.

    There's a review of Jour d'Hermes up at http://graindemusc.blogspot.com. It's impressionistic and poetic, but nonetheless I find that it corresponds to my experience.

    Pre-shower: Kerosene Whips and Roses. (Inspired by Thomas's post.)
    SOTD: MDCI Chypre Palatin. Sampling this for the second time today. It's every bit as good as the hype suggests, IMO. It's by Bertrand Duchaufour, who does a lot of L'Artisan Parfumeur's scents.

    Yeah, he's about as indie as it gets. I think, right now, MiN carries him and that might be it - although he's also on FB and gets the word out through at least one group we're both in.


    Bay Rum is indeed :slayer: Clubman I can't recall, though.


    I'd wanted to try Whips and Roses, but never quite got to it. I've had to adjust my expectations of leather scents over the years, and now more or less shy away trying new entrants to the category.

    I'd recommend it. Honestly, I was disappointed the first time I tried it because I was expecting something different. (I bought it because "Roses" was in the name and because the bottle is very attractive.) The top is very sharp; at first my nose interpreted it as freshly cut grass, but there' s nothing like that in the notes. I think it's just sharp citrus. The leather appears soon after, but it's a much higher-pitched, less luxurious and rich leather than I've encountered before. I'm at the point now where I enjoy it quite a bit.
