I am smelling like an 'Indian kitchen' but only until the beautiful sandalwood drydown appears.

Very green and slightly soapy. I like this one because it keeps a tradition alive that seems almost to have died out. It smells good, fresh and green, and it backs that up with a good, solid construction. The foundation of this in woody oriental notes give it presence and lasting power. The middle notes with jasmine and carnation are sweet and spicy, which makes for a kind of "romantic" feel to this scent. Moss and fir in the base make the drydown a little different from today's usual. This is an older, fresher style of woody-oriental accord.

Opium pour Homme Eau d'Orient by Yves Saint Laurent
Something is amiss in this well-mannered flanker. The essence of what makes Opium homme parfume ticks is drastically pared down. So what remains is still a respectable, nice-smelling scent minus the berry notes which I love so much in the parfume. But why settle for a carbon copy when you can have the beautiful sexy beast that is Opium pour homme edp?

Wow, long week - happy for Friday! Looks like it's going to be a sunny, perfect FL day. Costume National Scent Intense for me.
Hmmm... what to wear...
Maybe A*men? Maybe Aoud Roses Petals...? Maybe a day of Black Aoud?

Ferrari Passion. 1st time today. It reminds me of Swiss Army a little. It's OK for a casual Friday.

A big surprise. Thought it had zero longevity, but its always there, with soft yet intense wafts coming through, even 6 hours after. Understated class.
