A funny story-- the other night I was going through a huge drawer of sample vials I'd made over the course of the past couple of years-- stuff I decant into small unmarked vials to freshen up with at work. They were all unmarked-- I would open each one up, sniff it until I figured out what it was, then put it in a pile. I got most of the fragrances right. But there was ONE fragrance that I couldn't identify. What the hell is this fragrance? It smells great, but I can't figure out what the hell it is. For an hour I kept revisiting it to try to guess what it might be. No luck it was driving me nuts. Whatever it was, it was captivating.
Then FINALLY I realized that it was a vial of the Dreamer that I was sniffing.
The other fragrance that confuses me when I find an unmarked vial is GIT of all things. I'm always like "WOW this is incredible, but I don't recognize it-- then I realize it's GIT and I'm an idiot!" BTW, some guy was wearing GIT at my bar tonight-- I'm certain it was GIT and not Cool Water-- I was even more certain after he ordered a snifter of Johnny Walker Blue Label-- yep, it HAD to be GIT. I wanted to commend him on his choice of fragrance, but I didn't want the other bartender to give me any grief (we're pretty cutthroat with each other where I work).
