    I have only worn the EdT once and EdP twice, so I can't say a lot about it, but I think I like the EdP better. However, I own a bottle of the EdT (bought for 25$ at B&S), so it'll have to do. ;)

    How do you find the longevity and projection?

    IIRC, the EdP was good and EdT good enough. At least in terms of longevity. I don't recall about the projection, I think it was decent, but then again I do have a problem with projection anyway.

    Yes, it really honestly does have a vomity smell. I don't know if some people just don't pick up on that, but if they do and still like the scent, then they are very odd people.

    Osmanthus is lovely. Never tried the vomity one. Yick.

    Givenchy III for a night out. Lovely chypre. Soft, subtle, light. If YSL Y is the "classy" chypre, and Miss Dior the sexpot one, then III is the smart, reserved sibling.

    Some enterprising playwright should produce a variation on Chekhov's Three Sisters, where the three sisters are Givenchy III, Y, and Miss Dior. Bandit could play the Natasha character, maybe, and Coty Chypre could be Anfisa. It would be a great success.

    I've been all over the map on this one. The first time I smelled it I literally thought it must have gone bad. I thought it was awful. The next time I wore it, I loved it. Now I still like it, but there are lots and lots of fragrances I'd reach for before this. I don't think my opinion has ever fluctuated so much with any other fragrance.

    :lol: Dunno about that, but I CAN say for sure who'd get the starring role in La Putain Respecteuse...

    Eau de Rochas for a very hot day today (95 and humid). This one isn't the best choice, but I want to finish up this bottle as well and I can apply it quite liberally with little to do impending disaster. Couldn't say the same for my Samsara stink-out the other day. Other sweat-ers on the subway were NOT amused.

    Yeah, that's about it. It's pleasant, and I don't dislike it, but I'm not really excited about it either.

    So, I actually just took my sample of Adp - Colonia Assoluta with me and reapplied every couple hours. I don't love the scent but like it quite a bit.

    Yesterday was Mugler Pure Havane, a scent I love very much - to the point where I opined elsewhere that PH kicks TF Tobacco Vanille to the curb. And, I very much enjoy TV, so that's a bold statement to make.

    Today I'm wearing Tobacco Vanille: there's a fair amount of overlap but there's a really strong patchouli that rings out in the Havane that grabs my attention and affection. TV is definitely a keeper, but if I had to pick only one, it would be the Havane.

    Which, BTW, is available again on the Mugler website. And it's Reasonable, too!
