So I'm reading a thread tonight which reminds me of something that I have a mini of and I've never quite "bonded" with. I decide that after my shower I will give it one more chance and than I realize what I'm doing...trying to see if the cloying opening notes will pass into a beautiful drydown that I was too impatient for previously. The results are inconsequential to the point that I'm getting to, as is the fragrance. I am wondering if people have fragrances that they dislike greatly
Now with 184$ free from the Government (thanks to my grant), I knew I had to splurge I'm getting another one from the state but they haven't figured out their budget.. or something. So I won't get that one until they do. AS for what I bought:
Creed's Green Irish Tweed (let's see what all the fuss is about)
Lalique's Encre Noire
Paul Smith's Story (I almost bought it blind but I figured I would get a sample first)
Christian Lacroix's Tumulte
... as it has weird sense of humor sometimes.
I'd like to share my story about how I let the lot to choose my fragrance to wear for today.

Wazamba -- As reported: fruit, incense, resin. Very balanced and a fine incense entry but has a sharp, resinous edge that (while very well-done) powers its monumental sillage to the point where it's a bit uncomfortable to wear.
Eau Radieuse -- Best lime peels ever. Too bad it's overpriced. The ribbon on those H&G bottles is tacky.
Olene -- Sharp honeysuckle-jasmine, but it's all top and no bottom.
Jasmin Full -- Photorealistic jasmine sambac head, very green, also no bottom.
