    Angeliques Sous la Plouie on a very hot day in SoCal. I've always like this one, but man is it fleeting. I mean, it's long gone after a few hours, and I never have this problem with scents. I can smell Poivre Samarcande on my chest at the end of a hot day, but Angeliques don't last, sadly.

    Bond no. 9 New York Oud today. I remember liking it, and I still do. Calm on the oud in the opening, later drydown however gets dominated by oud.

    For the evening, New York Amber. I still like that one, too. They both have some sort of smell to them that may be "synthetical" but I'm not sure about that -- it could be the rose/saffron/oud,amber accord that Lyric Man by Amouage has, too. Anyhow, they're pretty good.

    Pre-shower: Lyric Man. Based on the notes, I should love this one, but I don't. I don't dislike it either, though.

    :(

    Don't give up on Amouage! (I have to agree though, I just applied some Lyric Man again and don't love it -- like the last time. Maybe it really changes a lot with the weather and it's better at >50°F or so)

    Declaration - I probably wear this more than anything in warm weather.

    I honestly don't know how you do it. I smell so much like unwashed cunt and the heat makes it 100x worse.

    Glad it's not a rebadged Ford Explorer with a leaping cat ornament on the hood. :lol:

    Caron Bellodgia today; lovely carnation, musk, and rose scent. A little powdery, but a good carnation note has a hint of spice that keeps it from feeling either too girly or too grandma.

    It's probably my second-favorite from Bond No. 9, behind Chinatown. Maybe New Haarlem is tied with it for second.

    Shaved today and splashed on copious amounts of Tabac aftershave.

    Interesting! I never owned Chinatown, but I had a sample. I don't remember dying over it, but I should try it again.

    Of all the Bonds I had, Riverside Drive is still my favorite, followed by Nuits de Noho, West Broadway, and HOT Always. New Haarlem was a unique scent, but didn't hit with me personally on all levels. I found it a better layering scent or "base" than a scent on its own.

    I liked Fire Island only for the fun factor; it's far too expensive to enjoy otherwise (got my bottle in a swap on Basenotes back in the day).

    I no longer have any full bottles; I used up my 2nd bottle of RD 2-3 years ago. Were any scents reasonably available on the market, Roucel's RD and Helmut Lang EdP would probably be in my regular rotation; the former for meetings and the latter for evenings out. Both have a wonderful, soft, rich flavor to them.

    Some of my favorite memories involve the scent of unwashed cunt. It really depends on the girl attached to it.

    I wore Riverside Drive as my pre-shower scent today. There's something about cool green notes like basil that I just don't like, and there's lots of that in this one.
