    Hey there Zaggora Girl! I like fragrances that have great longevity, something that will last for a full work-day, and leave a subtle trail when you walk by the hallway. As much as possible, I sample before buying a bottle.

    Thanks for your quick reply! We've heard about these fragrances before too, and will definitely give them a try when Christmas Shopping! What characteristics do you look for when buying a fragrance?

    You're welcome. I get to be with the husband now, and the long distance relationship is with my son and grandkids. * sigh *

    Hi Zaggora Girl, thanks for stopping by!

    My current favorite sweet fragrance is Eau des Baux by L'Occitane. The spices are well-blended and the sweetness is very "controlled" from middle to base -- not cloying. It is inviting, addictive, and very pleasant to the nose.

    This $50 full bottle has an amazing longevity, and very good projection the first couple of hours, before eventually becoming a detectible scent (stronger than skin scent). I can still smell this on me several hours after the first application without having to put my arms/wrist to my nose.

    Eau des Baux is one of the scents that I really feel compelled to write a review about. Such a quality fragrance without the hefty tag price. I admire it so much that I want my close friends to know I am wearing it, as I want to share it with them because I know they will enjoy it, too.

    Another one is A*Men Pure Havane by Thierry Mugler. The tobacco-cherry combination is unique and is irresistible. Like all A*Men flankers that I've tried, Pure Havane also has an outstanding longevity and very good projection.

    If I really want heavy sweetness, I turn to the original A*Men by Thierry Mugler; or my samples of Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille, and Noir de Noir; or even M7 by YSL.

    If you also have a recommendation, please feel free to post so I can put them on my to-test list. Thanks, and see you around! ;-)

    Awww bless! That was a wonderful unfurling of a story, and pictures to keep us on the edge of our seats. Thanks for that, it was lovely. What a beautiful present too, all layered, and each new layer even more exciting. I loved your description, and then ( holding back a sob here) the long distance relationship, with which i fully relate, as my husband and I courted from afar, him in Alaska, me in Ireland. So romantic.
    Thank you

    Thanks for your comment. I haven't really analyzed any other colognes in strong winds, so I'll wear the TdH more this season. I agree with you that it is leaning towards the formal side.

    Planning on buying Rive Gauche (tin can) -- I personally like it, but I'm having second thoughts as my wife is not really fond of it.
