    I love this (the post...). I remember my mother-in-law bought some Sean John Unforgivable for my father-in-law a year or so ago after smelling it at target or wherever. Fell in love with it. To each their own :slayer:

    So, eventually I went with Gold Man for the day and Lyric Man for the evening. I remembered Lyric Man to be different. But like L'Inc said, the lime note is great! And overall I still like it quite a bit (and Gold Man, too).

    I have! One of the best of the floral aldehydes. Keeps all that is good in no. 5 while getting rid of that icy, rocky meh, adding a soft, creamy fruit note. Yum.

    Edit; going out tonight with another aldehyde wonder... Patou 1000. It's a bit of a heady, thick chameleon... aldehydic, but also quite deep with an almost oriental feel in the drydown. Quite unique...

    Has anyone tried the Bespoke scents of Keiko Mecheri?
    Do all niche houses aim at 500-600€/100ml for their "top line" now? :confused:

    Fille en Aiguilles today. Lovely pine resin and incense, perfect for a coolish wet day.

    I've never tried any of the scents from them. Bummer because I had the opportunity. :angry:

    I've tried Bal de Roses, Soussanne, Ambre Mirabilis, and Tangeri from the Bespoke line. I enjoy them all, but I wouldn't pay anything close to the prices she's asking. Moreover, I enjoy some of the scents from her regular line more. Soussanne, for example, is quite similar to Datura Blanche, but I like the latter more. Ambre Mirabilis is very strange in a good way; it's just the kind of scent that niche perfumers should make. But I don't love it.

    I'm wearing Oud Ispahan today. It's the newest addition to the Dior Collection Privee. It's yet another entry into the rose/oud category. There are so many of these now, and I always wonder whether new ones are going to be distinct enough from what's already available to justify their existence. I have to say, though, that Oud Ispahan is very nicely done. The oud is much more prominent than in most of the scents in this category. It's got very good projection and lasts forever. I think both HORNS and b1os would like it.

    More so than Leather Oud? I quite like that one, but it's a bit rough for some.

    Today, um, Sycomore. Had to think about it.

    Yes, I think the oud is more prominent in Oud Ispahan than in Leather Oud. But the effect is much, much smoother in Oud Ispahan. I'm one of those who find Leather Oud a bit too rough, but I enjoy Oud Ispahan quite a lot.

    For L'Inc, I've been layering oud attar with the Prada Infusion de Rose and really like the fresh juxtaposition of this rose to the deep oud. Sheesh, I can't justify getting any other ouds right now since I'm so happy with what I have. That doesn't preclude me from trying it, though!

    The Dior range you are talking about, is it just in boutiques?

    The oud attar/Infusion de Rose sounds compelling.

    Yeah, the Dior Collection Privee is analogous to Chanel Les Exclusifs.
