    Old Spice is a very calming and comforting scent by the way. My uncle's favourite..

    I have such good memories of both of those. I had an uncle who assembled bombs at a munitions factory who was a man of very few words - he wore Brut and his presence arises instantly when I smell it.

    My Mother's Father was a welder who was a delightful story teller and used to feed me and my brothers great lies, for example he would show us the photo of the flag raising on Iwo Jima and tell us that he is the one reaching for the flag. He always wore Old Spice after he showered with LAVA SOAP!

    Such good memories of good men in my life who are associated with these two fragrances.

    I am wearing Villoresi Musk today. This is such a pleasant rose musk scent; I should wear it more often than I do.

    Today: L'Occitane Eau de Vetyver - not just one of the best buys for vetiver fragrances, but one of the best vetivers available as well as one of the best bargains in perfumery. I've got a bottle from 2003 that is still half full, to my delight, and I must say that the juice currently available is just as good.

    This evening: Tom of Finland. The juice in my bottle is quite dark and ambery compared to the photos I see online. Does anyone else have this stuff?

    My ToF is almost exactly the same color as Kolnisch Juchten.

    I have taken to wearing Chanel 1932 for my eveningtime scent. I was disappointed when I first tried this, but I think I've enjoyed it more every time I've worn it.

    I tried the L'Occitane Vetyver a few days ago in a shop. Its got a snappy freshness to it that is very appealing. Will likely buy a bottle. And it is very fairly priced.

    How do you like ToF? I don't have it so can't comment on your color Q

    Meh. Seemed very similar to a lot of 90s aquatic scents. I'm not a huge fan of aquatics so I don't have much to directly compare it too though. Not my thing.

    Awesome story, HORNS! Thanks for sharing—

    Yesterday: Chergui. Nice, but a little overhyped I think.

    Today: Dunhill Blend 30. A nice mellow green smoky fougère. Not much like the much vaunted Patou Pour Homme (which is much spicier and not "green"), but really nice on its own terms. I don't think it smells dated, and it's certainly not a powerhouse fragrance (at least with my bottle—I had to put on something like 5 sprays just to really get into it....)

    I like Tom of Finland a lot - it's a very comforting scent. Very complex balmy leather.

    What do you mean by balmy?

    I really need to get to the scent bar and try all the ELDO scents.

    I mean it here as a descriptor for generalized resinous qualities that the fragrance has, but in a sweetened way - not like frankincense.

    PdN New York for me today.

    Also, I think Tom of Finland is fantastic. I agree with HORNS's description.

    Eveningtime scent is Amber Oud. I'm ambivalent about Madagascar vanilla generally--and Amber Oud really has a strong dose of it--but the oud balances it very nicely.

    This fine autumn morning I will be wearing amber, also. [​IMG]Atelier's Ambre Nue. Hope the people sitting next to me on the airplane this morning like it, because I do!
    And, should be home in time to see the Eagles go down in flames to the Broncos.

    PdN NY is awesome. I was going to buy a bottle on parfum1 while they are running that 20% deal, only to find out they are not carrying NY right now, for some reason.

    Found a decant of PdN PH to try out, too. Looking forward to that.
