Today's SOTD was Comme des Garçons 2 Man
This is really similar to the Le Labo Vetiver I wore a few days ago - vetiver caked with dirt and soil. Eventually, that CdG signature accord of smoky cedar comes through, after a hint of mushroom came and went. All in all, it does more than the Le Labo, but the specific mix of the Le Labo really suited my chemistry, so it's my winner of the two.
For my SOTE, I'm testing out Jo Malone French Lime Blossom
At first, all I thought was "nice soap or an expensive candle, but too simple for a cologne," but then the indoles kicked in and everything got a lot more sultry and interesting. It's way too floral for me to be comfortable wearing in public, but a lot nicer than I thought in the first few minutes.
