    Parker, you can't get the Sycomore anywhere but the boutique on Maiden Lane, right next to the Diptyque boutique.

    Tried Odin 06 this morning. Somewhat OK but all very fleeting over the course of 20 minutes.

    I have 3ml of Rose 31 in a sepora atomizer that i am looking to sell. You can also contact Monica on her FB as she can take shorter decants order off BN. I have bought a few decants from her and would recommend her.

    Even if they don't sell it, any Chanel boutique will be able to order it for you.

    So, yeah, Santal Blush this morning. Then reapplied in the afternoon. It really is so good.

    My reship of the SOTD-order finally arrived (including 5ml of Jicky pre reformulation parfum for 38$ :)). Now I hope for some warm days to test all the Hermès scents. I applied some Caron - Fleurs de Rocaille parfum for the evening. Quite a pleasant floral with a touch of stink (piss) in the drydown. Good work. ;)

    thanks guys, I stopped by Neiman's today and you're right they don't carry Sycomore. And their Pour Monsieur was the Concentree version which I recall is a bit different than the regular EDP/EDT, correct? Anyway, I think I'll just go to the Maiden Lane shop next week sometime.

    I sampled YSL Pour Homme today. I liked the initial citrus lavendar note, but the dryback is a little vanilla/fruity/sticky/sweet. I just looked it up and said it was introduced in 1971 which somehow makes sense after wearing it. I felt very 70s today.

    Serge Lutens didn't answer since I've more specifically asked for samples. :(

    I'm glad you finally got that!

    Speaking of TF, I switched into Ombre de Hyacinth for the evening.

    The Les Exclusifs line of Chanel aren't marketed specifically to either gender. (Fragrantica says Sycomore is for women, but I don't know where they got that from.) Sycomore is classically masculine.

    Also, the Les Exclusifs are much harder to find than the regular line--they're not sold even at most high-end retailers like Neiman or Saks, though there are some Neimans and Saks that carry it. (That is why they are called Les Exclusifs. :teach: )
