    Re: Cologne that resembles alcoholic odors?

    Bombay Sapphire Infusion.
    Smells like a better version of the gin by the same name.
    The best "fresh Juniper" scent available (yes, better than penhaligons), as well as a godd fresh citrus scent.

    Re: Maison Martin Margiela 'Untitled' EDP

    I need to go retest this one. I remember it being very light and fresh and green, and liking it, but thinking it was barely too femme for my wardrobe. I love green scents, so Imm eager to retest...

    Re: spicebomb vs burberry london

    Both are greats among winter designer scents. the newer formulations of London with more wine/apple/pine/spice, and less pepper/tobacco, are very good. It's getting better with age I think.

    Re: Amouage Interlude Man - 2012

    I haven't yet smelled Interlude, but all this talk of Oregano, allspice, smoke, pepper, and designer amber bases at true EDP strength just serves to further stall my testing it.

    The "book" packaging is incredible:
    Kalemat means "Words" in Arabic.

    Oud Wood is basically all of the boring framework of M7 doused in synthetic unisex florals and musks.... without any of the daring, bold character or enticingly sweet and fruity notes of M7.
