Decided to go with the old guard for SotD: Guerlain Vetiver. Then a few hours later I tried my new decant of Montale Red Aoud on my wrist for the first time. Not quite sure what to think of it yet. It certainly is complex.
Update: Red Aoud has a great drydown. It does sort of smell like cookies. Looks like the SotE will be Serge Lutens Arabie, as I am attending a Christmas party and want to bring a bit of spice to the event.
