    Yesterday wore old fashioned Tabac aftershave and then in the evening put on Habit Rouge.

    Pre-shower: Voyage d'Hermes edt. As much as I like this, I still find that I underestimate it. Until I wear it again and realize how good it is.
    SOTD: Chanel No. 5 (edt). It's probably been a year or so since I've worn this. Fully deserves its status as a classic.

    I finally got a chance to try the VdH parfum at Neiman. I thought it did a good job of maintaining what I like from the edt. I've got plenty of edt left, so I won't be buying the parfum, but still, I satisfied my curiosity about it.

    Fat Electrician yesterday. Raw, metallic vetiver with a distinct herbal bitterness that i think comes from the myrrh. It's balanced by a powdery vanilla that becomes increasingly prominent in the drydown. Really like this one.

    I bought a 4ml bottle of Must de Cartier Parfum a few days ago (fingers crossed).

    ^^ Hope you like it! At very least it'll be interesting and fun to have in your collection, I'm pretty sure.

    Prada Infusion de Rose for me today. :)

    hmmmm stinkers! lol. I'm looking forward to wearing Pamplelune this summer since I haven't yet. Anyone think the juice is different because of the new packaging?
    Just got a bottle of MKK myself actually since I'm going through a bit of a stinky musky phase right now. It's not as crazy as everyone says and the drydown is just amazing. I think the trick with this one is not to spray too much

    anyone (Rach?), I was just at Guerlain and the Jicky EdP versus Extrait/Parfum... one's like $150, the other is like $300+... is the parfum that much better? or how is it different.

    I know I sound like a broken record on this one, so sorry in advance, but man, Pamplelune smells quite similar to the urine of a cat. I know this very well because I have a cat and sometimes the urine comes out of her body and into the outside world. (It's nothing to worry about; it's a natural process called urination. All cats do it.)

    The Infusion de Rose disappeared, so I sprayed on some MPG George Sand. It's been a little while since I've worn it. Man oh man, that stuff is good!

    Really? I didn't get stink at all. It was just boring (without any rough notes) to me. Maybe I had a cold that day or so.
    Didn't find my Tabac Blond the other day, so I wore Dzing! the last two days as my SotD and SotN. It's great, but nothing I can wear too often. Also better for overcast/cold-ish days or evenings.

    I'll apply some VdH (edt) now.

    There's a gazillion and one eucalyptus trees here in the Bay Area and every time I drive past more than say, three of them I get the most accurate smell of cat piss. Also there's some Sauvignon Blancs that have a faint smell of cat pee.

    @b1os: grapefruit scents always run the risk of smelling like cat urine. But I think some people's noses are more sensitive to that than others. Lots of people with very good noses here enjoy Pamplelune a lot and don't get the cat urine note that I'm always going on about.

    @HORNS: I'm not a wine connoisseur even a little bit, so I don't know: is the cat urine smell in Sauvignon Blancs widely acknowledged? I hope the smell is very faint!

    I'm going with MPG George Sand again today. I hardly ever do that; it must be pent-up demand.
