    Have you tried Tubereuse Criminelle? I'm sure this has been discussed but can't remember.
    I'd love to smell Sarrasins someday. Iris Silver Mist, considered by many to be the crown jewel of the Lutens lineup, left me unimpressed.

    Didn't try the former, but did try the latter two. Left me "meh." Not BAD by any means, but for the price I want to be floored. I was left standing. In fact, other than that I remember the names and that I DID try them... I remember nothing else about them. For a fragrance, which is the most evocative of memories, this is perhaps the most damning critique of all.

    Orange Sanguine is a very, very literal take on orange. It smells like you cut an orange and the juice landed on you.

    Also, Tubereuse Criminelle is out-of-this-world good, IMO.

    It definitely should be tried. To me, it is nothing like Malle's Carnal Flower, or any other tuberose fragrances.

    Do you like OS? I do, but it is very literal. Another literal orange but with some other things going on, that I like, is Orange Star.

    SOTD for me: won't know til after work. A no scent day at the office for me today.

    Speaking of "literal", I had the same experience with The Different Company's Sienne d'Orange. Not that big a fan.
    Company TDC's and Atelier's might be interesting though.

    I've actually only tried the vintage parfum (I've bought it for a quite cheap price when StC went first online and their prices were messed up), which is marvelous. I'd wait for rach's opinion, he's the master of Jicky in this thread. IIRC, EdP is preferrable to EdT, but quite inferior to the parfum (which is much more expensive, so I suppose 50 USD for 1.7 oz EdP is very well worth it). But maybe it was the other way around and EdT is preferrable to EdP? I remember rach saying something about different formulas.

    French Lover today. Works well in warm weather, the galbanum and incense give a 'cool' vibe

    En Passant for me today. (I am wearing lots of lavender, and so I thought it matched well.)

    Red Aoud today.

    I have a decant of a Montale called Mix Wood, which I can't find any record of. Has anybody ever come across this?

    I would jump in that if I were you. Jicky is a classic in all the concentrations, and $50 is a great price.

    As my SOTE I am wearing another scent that is a classic in all the concentrations that's right I am talking about Hermès Rouge. (Not really considered a classic by anyone, I don't think. But I like it at least.)
