    Appreciate your feedback on them. Thanks again !
  2. This is a good question. I didn't know that C&E was facing difficulties. I would say stock up, they are not gone yet. C&E is a lovely, simple lavender, isn't it? Not sweet or cloying. I haven't tried Atkinson's so I can't comment on that. A lavender I like, but it is niche, is Antiheros by Etat Libre D'Orange. It too is dry and simple, almost minimalist. L'Occitane en Provence makes a smokey lavender, I don't know where that will be to your liking. I like herbal notes, so a lavender-herbal combo sounds good to me.

    Am addressing this question to you because of your review of C&E Lavender. Now with C&E in Chapter 11, my wife and I are at a bit of a loss as to what to get when our last 2/3 bottle runs out! We enjoy C&E's "floral" scent. I do not like lavenders that smell herbal, like TOBS. Have considered Atkinson's, but am taken aback by all the non-lavender notes that show up in the profile. Would appreciate your suggestions. Thanks, John
  4. Hi colognal, I agree that Maestro is a long-lasting scent. Maestro has a note called "vetiver" in it. That note comes from the vetiver plant, and it gives a grassy, earthy note that often does last a long time. I like it a lot. L'Occitane en Provence scents are very good value for the money, and they have an exceptional scent called Vetyver. I know that would last a long time on you. You might also try Lalique's Encre Noir, that too is a vetiver scent and it is very popular. Givenchy or Guerlain Vetiver scents also are good, I prefer Givenchy though it is harder to find than Guerlain. Hope this helps! cheers,

    Hello Sir,

    I've read your review of Simon Chang's Maestro. I was given a bottle a few years ago, as my first cologne. Now I'm willing to try new scents. I bought some Adidas Moves, but it seems to fade away shortly after I put it. Maestro was quite long-lasting. Do you agree about it? Do you know some long-lasting colognes that I would presumably like as much as Maestro?

    Thank you!

    Sorry! I haven't been on BN for a few months and I missed your message. I'm not actually in Ottawa currently, but will be moving back there on July 1st. Maybe we can meet if you're there again sometime!
  7. Hey there Tim, it is very nice to hear from you. Well keep me posted in detail, I think you'll fall in love with at least some of those terrific scents. I don't know Cedar Sandarque, but I do LOVE a good dry cedar. Cheers, buddy.

    Thanks for your review of Tauer's L’Air du Desert Marocain, ody. It helped me pinpoint what did not work for me: the sweet amber (I'm OK with drier amber) and the vanilla. Put the two together and I need a quick hit of coffee.

    I have several samples coming from TPC, many based on your remarks: PG's L'Eau Guerriere, Cedar Sandaraque, Parfum dEmpire's Iskander, and then there's Spiritus/Land and GreenGreenGreenGreen. cheers, Tim
  9. If you have come to this page, I encourage you to check out my social group, Coneheads. It is a fun group, with good sharing. Please join! Cheers, ody
  10. Hi there, Tara. Check out nukapai's thread on the female side on Nuka and Ody's Mayday get-together. I was in the UK on business and had a nice sniff & chat with nuka. She posted some pics of her day. I'm just back from my trip, and hope to do a similar thread on the men's side.
    So things are just fine with me! Nice to hear from you, I hope you are well. Looked for Bois Rouge but couldn't find it anywhere that I was in London.
