Caron's Pour Un Homme. Still wearing it today. Probably would get my best-all-around-fragrance vote as well. Some mornings you just don't want to give too much thought to what you spray on. I keep reaching for it because it's fresh, clean, soothing & has that rare exotic vanilla note in there to maintain a sense of sexiness. To me, Pour Un Homme is as versatile as Guerlain's Vetiver & Dior's Eau Savage. Any of the Egyptian musks will also do the trick for those undecided days.
Going by my SOTD posts, I haven't repeated a single fragrance in November!
But I also usually put on another scent in the evening when I get home, and I think
I've worn Gucci Nobile (which I used to really dislike) more nights than any other.
I posted in a late November thread that I would not be replenishing Coriolan - *something drippy about an unrequited love for a leather chypre.
I think the love is becoming requited.
November was a good month to become reflective and introspective - I think Coriolan is going to be a long-term relationship. Seems as if prices bottomed out and are rapidly rising due to demand / increasing scarcity. The 3.4 EDT which sold for $20 less than three months ago is $30. Hard luck that it was discontinued.
Since joining this community, I seem to have broadened my horizons and now adore orientals, which I used to dislike.
November was quiet a month of discovery, testing, researching... and though I've worn quite a few new-to-me scents, what I have worn most often has been orientals like Samsara and Coco.
I have learned that warm, vanillic, spicy scents are perfect cold weather fragrances!
I tested many new ones, but since November was so cold, I was attracted to full, warm, deep fragrances.
I completely finished four samples: Charles Jourdan The Parfum (my bottle should be here any day) Daim Blond Splash Forte Mariella Burani (and surprisingly, its sibling 'Eau Rosee') - these blossom into comforting fragrances in winter.
