  2. Re: Last day for BeautyHabit sale what did you get

    I broke down and got PdN's New York. I was on the fence with Baladin and Carre d'As, as well as MPG Racine, but managed to resist the impulse to snap them all up. Hopefully there will be another sale...

    Re: In Praise of Overlooked Scents

    Chaleur was one of the first scents I bought when I started to really investigate the world of fragrances. I picked it up fairly cheaply at a Perfumania five or six years ago. It has a great green...

    This is one of my favorites for warm weather and was my SOTD yesterday. Your description is right on the money, though I would add that I get a pronounced cypress note from the drydown in addition to...

    Re: Round out my collection with a classic...

    I also agree with Azzaro PH (which has the added bonus of being fairly inexpensive) and Eau Sauvage.

    You might also consider Chanel pour Monsieur or Antaeus. Paco Rabanne PH is also a classic and...

    Re: West Indian Limes

    I agree with Gotham about the lime candy -- it ends up drying down a bit sweet and synthetic (IMO). It lacks the "bite" that I look for in a lime scent. That said, it is one of the longest lasting...

    Re: MOLINARD recommend fragances ?

    Madrigal reminds me of a toned down, less floral version of Cerruti's 1881. Herbal, but not too strident. I think this would be good for the office.

    Same for me!

    Unfortunately, I think my decant has gone bad. There's an off-putting peppery note that wasn't there last time I used it. Fortunately, it dissipated after a few minutes.

    Re: Vetiver

    Guerlain's version is the closest thing I have to a signature scent. The vetiver quotient in it is subdued, however, compared to others.

    For an "extreme" vetiver, I second MPG's Route du Vetiver....
