SOTD Tuesday 1st day of August is:
VETIVER DES SABLES from Montale!
The root of wild vetiver from the desert combined with notes of mahogany and Indian spices.
This is a beautifully intoxicating fragrance from Montale. Perfect choice for a hot day!
"A great perfume is a work of art, it can lift our days, haunt our nights and create the milestones of our memories. Fragrance is liquid emotion. And that never goes out of fashion. " MICHAEL EDWARDS
Grey Flannel - Geoffrey Beene
Think i'll reach way back in my cabinet today for the long-discontinued Nicole Miller for men.
Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??
Ambre Russe by Parfum D'Empire
and its amazing stuff!

Gonna be 100+ degrees here today in the Northeast ... Clinique Happy is gonna get the call out of the bullpen.

"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
Trumper's Spanish Leather
Can anyone remember love? It's like trying to summon up the smell of roses in a cellar. You might see a rose, but never the perfume.
Shalimar - Guerlain
Wishlist is pointless.
Boucheron PH EDP, after shave balm, spray deodorant, shower gel.
Kenzo PH. It's hot as hell out there.
Early this morning I put on Silver Mountain Water by Creed. Off into town in a bit, and will wear L'Eau d'Hiver by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle for something a bit different (as the weather's cooled off today). Possibly the most floral fragrance I've ever smelled; formidable yet hauntingly beautiful.

Starting out the month with my new-to-me Yatagan . Didn't like it on my hand yesterday but sprayed it on all over today for a 'trial'.

All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
Un Jardin Sur Le Nil by Hermes.......Mmmmmmmmmmm.....Gary
As it's supposed to be 95 degrees F outside today (ouch) and I had my wisdom teeth taken out yesterday (double ouch), I had to have something light and to lift my mood.
So, I picked Bvlgari's Eau Parfumee Au The Vert (original). Just right for this hot day.
Celebrating 10 years on Basenotes - and smelling better than ever
My mission statement: "I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone."
I think I may go with Jaipur Homme tonight for work...don't know why as it's a scorcher here...but I think it will be nice this evening.
On second thought, I haven't pulled Acier Aluminum out of the shadows for a while...so that's the one.
Got sample of M7 and decided to give it a try.
Honestly? Do not like it, not that it is unpleasant, but nothing special and sweet. Do not understand all these fanfares here on BN about it.
II est de forts parfums pour qui toute matière/Est poreuse. On dirait qu'ils pénètrent le verre.
Bond No.9 - Bleeker Street
David and Becca forever!!
A brilliant, cool (72 degrees) day in the Black Hills, after 2 of our last 3 days had been 107 degrees! So, time to whip out New York from Patricia de Nicolai as my SOTD!

Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
