Sorry to hear that - hope you're feeling better soon. On the bright side, you're still smelling some things, so it's a good sign (if only for your nose!
I intentionally wore nothing so that I could do some testing in stores. It was a complete madhouse, but it was so busy, I could try everything completely undisturbed. I'm sure the sales staff were very, very happy.
I never found a scent for my wrists - completely forgot about it. But I ended up with Usher's UR for men
on the back of one hand, and J. Lo's deseo for men
on the other. I had liked UR
earlier, finding it similar to L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme
, but this time it just didn't rock my boat. The homage to Usher's earlier scent was just too much this time. I got interesting whiffs, but it was love/hate.deseo for men
was more of a pleasant surprise. My wife liked it immediately. It's another modern light designer scent - nothing radical here - but very competently done. It has a tobaccoish note that's not quite a full note, but interesting nonetheless. It never diminished in any way, and it turned into a nice skin scent, so I can easily imagine this one getting a "thumbs up" from a lady who's likely smelled many fine men's scents close-up!
My favorite scent was the SotE - Kenzo Power
, bought almost blind in a different store after we did all that testing. I can only say that Dimitri was right about this one. I sprayed it on before bed, and I have never
had a scent get so many compliments from my wife. Every time I rolled over or moved around elicited another "That's good!"
or "That's really good!"
So it may be a rather binary test, but I can still honestly say that "chicks dig it"!
Anyway, hope that you're up and about as soon as possible. And I do want to hear how things have gone with your class on perfume
. Not sure if that happened already. Perhaps your downtime could be the chance for a blog post or a report on how that went, or how the planning is going. I know I'm not the only one here who's really looking forward to hearing about that. Again, hope you feel better soon.
