So far, I've worn Caron's Tabac Blond and Poivre extraits. I need to open my mind a bit more.
Evogel, you make me smile.
Lately I too have been using Chanel No.19. Like you I've used Tabac Blond and Poivre in extrait (you and I probably went in together a few years ago on a group purchase of Poivre. I don't get enough chances to wear it, doggone it, but man, does it ever teach you the mastery that Caron can put together).
I've spent about three days in a row wearing Jolie Madame in edt, because I got multiple bottles from a discount outlet store, and I was digging it strongly, even though it calls to mind women's perfume history. The first half of it is heavy with a lilac note, and then the stuff goes over leathers. Wow. I'll wear it, but I do want to smell it on women very much.
I got Caron's Bellogia in edp because Equipage turned me on to carnation scents. Bellodgia is da bomb karnazion. Pure and thick.
Jicky in edt and edp, although I guess the general consensus here is this is as much a man's scent as it is a woman's.
Robert Piquet's Bandit in edt and edp. A trip. Each a trip. Like variations on Bel Ami. Similar to the old darkness in Jolie Madame too, but each a wonderful and different experience.
Parure edt I've meant to wear but keep forgetting. I've only shot my wrist a few times with my bottle. I must change this.
Hiris is a favorite now. What can I say but that I love iris very much. I could go into some superlatives about this blend, but I can't think of them now. The juice deserves them though.
I used to wear Molinard's Habanita until my mom wanted my bottle. It's close enough to Creed's vintage Tabarome so that I use the latter when I need the feeling. I also have Molinard's Vervienne en Fleurs, which is an edt blend of verbena and jasmine, for the most part. I love verbena in the summer, so I use it then.
There were a few more on my mental list just now, but I suddenly can't remember them. I guess I'll have to add another post later.
A compliment to be asked! Thanks.
