I happen to prefer Kelly Caleche over TdH for it being akin to DH according to LT, & w/ Dior Homme reformulated, probably makes more scents & less lipstick
The best KC description I've read is from Chandler Burrs's last paragraph in The Perfect Scent, "..the smell of (wet) leather bathing suit emerging from a swimming pool." Another JCE creation Burr alluded to in the same paragraph, ".. a leather sprinkled w/ sugar," is IMHO the modern reformulation of Bel Ami." Pls feel free to comment as I'd love to hear your thoughts.
On a separate note, I've been itching to attend the Andy Tauer event this wkd. However, w/ the NLCS on the line & Gmen's attempt to win 2 of the last 3 WS hanging by a thread in a 3+ hr rain delay & loss, I'm tempted to just glue myself to the TV & cheer on my beloved Gigantes..
