  1. MPG Santal Noble - doubleplusungood

    (Original post here.)

    The experiment had to start somewhere really. The package from Luckyscent arrived and all 14 samples were nice and intact. Not knowing where to start, and not wanting to contaminate the thought process by favoring one right off the bat, Iíve been using a random number generator to decide my fragrances for me out of the samples. The very first one? Santal Noble by MaÓtre Parfumeur et Gantier. This one was initially picked completely on a whim. I remembered hearing ...

  2. Caesars Man - Nuclear Freaking Deathbomb

    (Original post here.)

    Ah, Caesars Man. You were almost my first online purchase, almost. Especially at $11 for a big olí 4.0 oz bottle. And in your immediate defense, you donít sound all that bad, with notes of Lime, Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Amber, and Musk. Imagine my joy when I spot you at the local TJ Maxx. $9.99 for the same 4.0 oz bottle! Iím sold!

    And thatís where it all went wrong.

    Of course, I canít be too much of a prick about this, at $2.50 an ...

  3. I Smell. . . Challenge

    This week and last week (and actually the week before that. . . no actually this whole YEAR) has been really challenging for me. Work has kept me busy and leaves very little time for sampling, or devoting myself to trying new things.

    I find that sampling things takes effort. I want to have the time to write my impressions as I am impressed. And these days, I rarely have a long moment to myself. So trying new scents becomes difficult.

  4. Tabac Blond Day 5

    Dominatrix in a bottle! Dead sexy. Is it supposed to be sexy? Is it the leather? I've never worn anything I perceived to be in-your-face sexy, but I never would have guessed it smelled like this.

    I did, however, sense that I should proceed with caution on this one, so I wore to work a loose-fitting light turquoise colored crewneck sweater and minimalist makeup. But next night on the town with DH, I just may have to rock this one with the form-fitting black dress, knee-high stiletto ...

  5. Baldessarini Ambrť - Easy Drinkin'

    (Original post here.)

    While Iíll be the first to admit that for the most part Hugo Boss offerings havenít done much for me (Iíll also admit my experience with them is pretty limited), I have yet to find a fragrance in their Baldessarini line that I didnít like. The original Baldessarini (which will be reviewed in the future) was my first experience with fir and pine in a fragrance and is probably partly responsible for my affinity for the notes. Baldessarini Del Mar I just recently ...
