Incense by Norma Kamali
Very thick but a bit boring. So I flowering it by BPAL Kabuki
Vetiver The Great!!!
excellent day scent especially in the office.
Santal Noble *****/*****
Versace Black Jeans
Tsukimi by Anayake. A strange fruity/woody concoction. A bit like Santos with a plum note.
I am wearing Ambra today, and two days in a row for Etro.
Ambra: bergamot, lemon, coriander, geranium, patchouli, cistus ladaniferus, vanilla, musk, amber.
This is one of my favorite soft ambers.
The notes for Mahogany, which I sampled yesterday with great delight, are as follows: Bergamot, Marjoram, Cypress, Clove, Cumin, Pepper, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Vanilla, Musk, & Amber.

I think everyone should own one Versace scent, for those occasions where you want to give off a slightly vulgar, slightly menacing vibe. I like Dreamer, but its not one I wear much, because it comes off kind of floral on me. Black Jeans is a five star scent in my book.
Gendarme for a hot humid day with no air conditioning.
SOTE will be Dolce & Gabbana PH.
Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Annick Goutal Eau de Monsieur - lasting power could be better, but I like this stuff! Reminds me of a sunny french countryside... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]
Jivago 24K Pour Homme.........Have a great weekend!!!!!
Vetiver Oriental. Warm with a dash of chocolate.
I have to admit it:
I've gone smelly-free for about a month. Why? I had to temporarily stop my smelly habit due to a major surgery. Trust me: the surgery wasn't pleasant. It's also the reason that you haven't heard from me much here on Basenotes. (I'd rather not get into further detail about my major surgery.)
But, I'm almost back to normal now, so I decided to start smelling good again. Since most of my smellies are at our other house 2 hours away, I'm pretty much stuck with just samples.
Fortunately, I had a little sample of Mugler Cologne that was leftover from a shopping trip a friend and I took to Saks during my first year of college. (I bought some Violet Angel for my Mom there, and they threw in the samples for me.)
The verdict? It's good to have an old friend again.
Top 5 for Winter:
1) Musk Oud - By Kilian

3) Back to Black - By Kilian
4) Encre Noire - Lalique
5) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL

This was almost my SOTD as well. It's one of my faves. At the last moment I decided on Lanvin l'Homme instead.Originally Posted by aztec
I just got a Decant of this from Ebay. I can't believe a floral scent smells so masculine!
Minotaure - P.Picasso
Creed SMW - Never wore this popular standard before, so I'm trying it from a sample.
CdG Ouarzazate, and noe Wood Coffee and Burnt Sugar:-)

Boss Bottled again. Didn't think I would like this as much, but I just love the fruit/apple scent in the beginning, and it lasts quite long too!
L'Anarchiste... that print ad with a Lit matchstcik is stuck in my head..and
all the descriprions I heard about it before, were right on the money. the orange-metallic topnotes
and its subtle whiffs later that comeback and hit you are nice. It is not necessarily feminine but I think a woman can still pull this off.
EnvYuS My Wardrobe
Gucci Rush - it never disappoints me.
212 Men----I don't why a person with 50+ scents would wear the same one for three days in a row. HMMMMM
SOTE------Dolce and Gabbana PH--------I want to smell good tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Patou Voyageur. Damn it's hot and muggy up here...
