    Yeah, the cat pee thing with the Sauv Blanc is pretty well known.

    Today: Oud Attar

    Got the Must de Cartier Parfum in the mail today. What the hell is Luca Turin's problem?? Fine, the man doesn't have to like it, but he needs to acknowledge quality when it is due.

    ^^ The funny thing is that I think his unwanted chocolate from the assortment box assessment is exactly right. It's just that I always love that chocolate! Also, it really does look like motor oil, doesn't it?

    I was shipping off a couple of bottles that I am letting go of when I started digging though the sample drawer and found a few bags I never ever look at. I found a sample vial of CdG Series 3: Oarzarzate (sp?) which is supposedly well-liked, and decided to run with that. Not bad, pretty light-wearing incense/vetiver, though I think Shaal Nur covers that ground already.

    I am extremely unfamiliar with Etro's creations. :(

    I haven't been posting here because I stick to a fairly tight rotation, but I just added a new one: Histoires de Parfums Petroleum

    What do you think about that one, Dopester?

    Today: Voyage d'Hermes Parfum

    I wore my new Must De Cartier Extrait yesterday evening and asked my wife what she thought: "You smell like a cake shop.":uhoh:

    I can't give a real review of Petroleum yet since it is still pretty new. It seems to be different than anything else I have used so I am not sure how to describe it. It definitely carries the risk of being more novelty than good, but I liked it enough to get a bottle.

    Out of the few I tried, Shaal Nur was a total winner. Messe de Minuit was good for a time (dark churchy incense) but soon I came to discern this odd coconut note and that ruined it for me. Sandalo was really nice but when I sampled it I hadn't yet gotten hooked on Sandalwood.


    I never ever ever ever ask Mrs. Thomas what she thinks of a scent. Ever. She's kind of a fruity-floral type.

    Yesterday's SotN: A Lab on Fire - What We Do in Paris is Secret. Opening nice, overall decent, but it has that sort of dryness/aquatic notes (I don't know how to describe it better) I'm no fan of.

    Today, AbdesSalam Attar - Sharif. 99.xx% natural (or probably 100%). This is a good match for Muscs Koublai Khan. Also spicey, sweet, animalic (natural civet in here!). I like them both. I'm sure there are some profound differences, but the general vibe is similar to me. Longevity is good.

    That's about my opinion too. I can't get too excited about cool green scents like L'Homme Libre.
