    I really like it - it's a definitely warm sandalwood cut with a steely, modern, metallic edge.

    I'm wearing it again today. Your description is faithful to the opening and first hour or so. Then it turns into something that smells like a cheap sporty deodorant. Maybe it's my skin.

    Tried Angelique Noire again. I really like this. It is competing with Memoir Man for my next FB. Anyone here able to help me decide? My hunch is that you will tell me to get both....sigh....

    Wearing Yatagan by Caron today, it's probably the most feminine/floral fragrance that I own, I don't mind it. I imagine that it would be nice in summer, especially if I'm planning to go outdoors.

    IIRC I've only worn it once and liked it. I'm ambivalent towards Memoir Man.

    I'm wearing Angelique Noire today. TBH, I'm not a big fan of this one. I'd like it more if it had more lift; it's too matte for my taste.

    Are you sure you're talking about Yatagan?

    Iris Prima by Penhaligon's today. This scent sticks very close to the skin. I get a powdery iris, not getting much leather at all.

    Today I wore Sonoma Scent Studios Fig Tree at work. Its a very green, woody fig, with just a touch of the fig fruit in the background. The interesting thing about this fragrance is not necessarily the fig, but the wood (fig wood?), which has a roasted, slightly smoky and somewhat doughy profile. It reminds me somewhat of gaiac wood. Good stuff for Spring.

    Anyone tried Carthusia Io? Would appreciate your impressions.

    Cheers guys!

    Hey b1os, if I recall correctly, you know the various AdP Colonias, right? I have Assoluta, which I really like. Is Essenza sufficiently different to warrant a close look? Thanks

    Yeah, that's good stuff. Did you try SSS Incense Pure? In the same genre and also very worthwhile.

    Sorry to monopolize the thread gang

    I decided to apply Dzing! to the surface of my skin, thereby making it my SOTE.

    Now I am editing my post, which I am allowed to do because I am in America and have freedom of speech: I have applied Ungaro Diva as a second SOTE. Has anyone else tried that one?

    Wore By Kilian - Prelude to Love today. Worked well in the warm weather we had, but nothing special overall.

    Yeah, I know most people see it as a winter fragrance but for some reason it just seems better for summer/spring to me. It comes across as light and floral, it seems perfect for a natural environment like the beach or forest in summer. I feel the same way about Havana by Aramis.

    To me winter fragrances are more warm, woodier, spicier and unnatural. Out of my own collection I'd say One Man Show, Cigar, Fahrenheit and L'Essence de Cerruti fill that role well.

    Wearing Havana today.
