    Aqua Universalis Forte nearly fits that bill- except longevity on me is about 8 hours.

    SOTD: Dunhill Fresh (gone in 2 hours) to be layered with Memoir Man.

    Slumberhouse Pear and Olive today. I'm enjoying this a lot more than I thought I would. I'd read it smelled like stewed fruit, but I think it's a bit less syrupy and sweet than that.

    SOTD: Hermes Voyage. Hated the top but the dry down was superb. 9 hours of good longevity for this smoker.

    Today: Silver Mountain Water.

    I really like this fragrance, but the first 15 minutes after application makes my throat irritated and I get this hacking cough about three times during that 15 minutes. Weird.

    It's good to hear that someone else is getting longevity from this fragrance.

    I wore Iquitos yesterday and it was still going pretty strong until I showered this morning. Wearing Eau de Guerlain today for a trip to the scorching desert.

    Tonight, getting ready for two weeks in Italy :)bounce:), a classic - Quorum. What's interesting is that the ingredients on the box said "Evernia prunastri extract", which pretty explicitly means that they used the real thing and not the synthetic alternative required by the European Fragrance Federation or whatever it's called. I bought the bottle a few days ago for $10.

    French Lover today, layered with a little Black Oud.

    Had an interesting session today with Stephen from Tommi Sooni. A former horticulturaIist, he took a group of us around the botanical gardens and showed us each of the plants he'd used in one of his frags. Really helped to pick out the individual notes.

    That should have been a lot of fun.

    Today: Chergui.

    Went with a high school favorite today. What the hell, CK Escape. It's amazing how you love something so much at one point of your life to find out 15 years later you cannot stand it.

    Santal Majuscale today.

    I had a myoclonic jerk while dabbing from the sample, and spilled half of it all over me. I hope everybody around me likes sandalwood!

    SOTD is vintage Givenchy Gentleman. I have the Eau de Toilette and the After Shave versions, and this is the After Shave. I think I prefer this one; it's less bombastic, but the oak moss is still powerful. I'm growing to really love this in smaller doses...

    I decided to wear a fragrance whose name says something about my character. So I opted for Amouage - Honour Man.

    After a random grope in my sample box, I am wearing HdP 1725 today.

    POM Pour Homme today.

    Found a stack of vintage frags in a market today. (Deets in Thrift thread). None for men, sadly.

    Afternoon of a Faun today. Trying to like this, but I just don't. The opening smells like a cheap bain-marie dinner and the drydown is nothing special.
