    Luckyscent apparently has a few bottles of several recently-discontinues L'Artisans, including Navegar and Tea for Two.

    If you're in the UK or Europe, the L'Artisan site has a number f solid choices at a steep discount (Poivre Piquant, Navegar, Dzonghka & others). Unfortunately, those of us in the US are screwed, as the US Dollar sale section has only a couple scents on sale, though Duchaufour fans should be pleased.

    ^^ Thanks for the heads-up!

    I'm wearing Amouage Gold today. I'm really coming around on this one. It's a wonderful, very expensive smelling bright floral. I'm finding that I need to apply more liberally than I usually do to get the full complexity.

    This evening and tonight: Montale Black Aoud

    Edit: OK it's morning now and somehow the scent crept from my wrist where I sprayed it to the shirt I was sleeping in and the smell is still going strong but is now evolved into something more lovely. I was put off by the very strong iodine odor of the perfume at first because I smell iodine enough in not "beautiful" contexts but my body heat stewed the components of this perfume until it became quite enjoyable.

    At Covent Gdn during Xmas sale they bagged this instead of Navigatuer which I'd bought. Big discount. Navegar seemed slightly feminine iirc. could be wrong.

    ^^ I remember you saying that you used to like Elixir des Merveilles a lot, but then it lost its charm. (I had the same experience.) Nothing similar has happened with Eau des Merveilles, I assume? I've never had a full bottle of it because I liked Elixir better.

    Keiko Mecheri Soussanne for me today. This is quite similar to Datura Blanche, also by Keiko Mecheri, and much, much more expensive. I actually prefer Datura Blanche, although this is very nice too. Soussanne emphasizes the bitterness more and de-emphasizes the heavy sweetness.

    I'll think about it. If someone wants me to proxy something, shoot me a pm.

    Great that you're enjoying it. Did you get the female?

    Yesterday, I wore Eau Sauvage all day long. Used like 1ml over the course of 24 hours.

    Yeah, the feminine. It is similar to PdN New York in that it's not anything especially groundbreaking, but it's just a very good specimen of its kind. Gold reminds me a lot of Chanel No. 5, and so my first thought was that it wasn't that special. (After all, we already have No. 5 and all the fragrances it inspired.) But I came to realize that it's an absolutely first-rate execution of that basic idea. It's obviously very expensive, so I won't be getting a full bottle. But at some point I might get a larger decant.

    Ok, I'll try it out sometime. I like the pour homme version (but I generally like most of Amouage's scents because they smell good and last very good).

    I'm wearing Fabergé's Tigress vintage cologne from the late 1960's. I like it good. It (again) reminds me of Guerlain's VdN, Shalimar etc. I'm not sure whether it's just a similar note or similar compositions of notes (vanilla+amber+floral+animalic).

    ^^ What made you decide to sample vintage Tigress?! There are some really funny reviews of that on the Internet.
