    Pre-shower: 100% Love. I saw that Dane had a high opinion of this, so I figured I should give it another try. Still don't like it, though.
    SOTD: L'Artisan Tea for Two. I don't understand how this could have been discontinued; it's just a fantastic scent.

    I'm also surprised & disappointed by this. T4T is among their best, IMO, and certainly gets widespread acclaim. I wonder what the motive for canceling it is.

    Wow, that is sad news. T4T was always one of my favorite L'aPs. :(

    Today is Dune (parfum) The original Dune for women is quite lovely in EdT form and I recommend it, especially because the Parfum is virtually impossible to find now (I lucked out and found a bottle after a LONG search). Thick, greasy, intoxicating... hard to figure out and not for the general masses. If you like Must de Cartier, I think you'd like Dune (but that doesn't mean they're similar!)

    Reading reviews of Dune from experts and online sources alike... it's called everything from an oriental to a chypre to an ozonic. Like Must, it's very hard to classify, and goes in so many different directions. Really quite exquisite to be so often overlooked. Give it a try especially on a dry or sunny day (not too hot!) and I think you'll like it.

    I don't know why, but I find that so funny: Bois des Iles as great forbidden pleasure!

    Pre-shower: the lovely Hermes Rouge.
    SOTD: TF White Patchouli.

    I"ll change into something else to see Carmen tonight. (The opera, not a person named Carmen.) HORNS suggested a leather/tobacco scent. I'm still thinking which one to go with.

    Well, Carmen is set in Spain and within a tobacco factory so I thought that would be a good one.

    Have fun!

    Unfortunately I've run out of my decant of Jasmin et Cigarette. It would be perfect!
    Thinking about Back to Black.

    Yesterday and Today, Mitsouko edp. I think I can wear this year round, though on really hot days the edt might be a little better. The edp does "bloom" a bit in the heat, but not in a bad way, at least to me.

    Went with Back to Black to see Carmen. They set it in Franco-era Spain with a film noir vibe, so even the name of my fragrance was appropriate! (I think I'd have preferred a more traditional production, TBH. Other than that, I thought it was great.)

    Yesterday, SotM: Tea for Two.
    SotD: L'Instant pH extrème
    SotN: Midnight Cologne (TDC)

    Oh, and there was a guy sitting next to me when watching ESP - IT who bathed in some synthetic aquatic juice, it was nearly unbearable. (idk what he whore, probably Acqua di Gio or so (but I don't know what Acqua di Gio smells like))

    Today, Tabac Blond parfum.

    Continuing to be underwhelmed by Bond No9 Wall Street. Pleasant, but nothing memorable.
