    Not glamorous, not chic, not interesting, not believable, certainly not ground-breaking and not taking you on a journey.

    Wellgroomedgentleman, you must try jujy54's choice: Givenchy Gentleman, it's a classic. I wonder if there is a man out there it doesn't smell good on?

    If you want to stick to the Chanel stable, No. 19 is very good too, I don't think you can go wrong there. No. 22 is really beautiful, but only comes in large, expensive...

    Don't use scent at night because I find it keeps me awake and it's all too much for my other half, so one has to be considerate. I do, however, light a lovely scented candle in the half hour before...

    Re: Candle of the day?

    Astier de Villante - Rue St Honore - smells of old floor boards, wax, libraries. The best candle I have ever had. Sadly, hard to get hold of in the UK.

  38. Re: SAMPLING ETIQUETTE: Pinkies Out & Mouillettes Turned Around

    I asked this question of Francis Kurkdjian - he said you always smell the narrow part of the mouillete because otherwise it would be too much of the fragrance at once to smell.
