    Very good choice ! I use to wear ( among a lot of others- I think I have a private perfumery at home ) Eau des Iles, Parfum d' Habit, Eau pour Jeune Homme and Garrigue ( This last one remembers me GIT by Creed ). Some times I mix on body EdI and PH, as per sugestion from the very nice employee of Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Boutique at Rue de Grenelle in Paris.

    Noir by ST Dupont. More interesting than my initial dismissal suggested, and sufficiently cheap on ebay to further investigate.

    I popped for Guerlain's new Oud Sensuel today. Notes are: neroli, cardamom, oud, iris, geranium, tonka bean, Virginia cedar. It's an oil, and very rich and concentrated, but stays close to the skin until you generate a little body heat, and then it broadcasts like gangbusters.

    Received Mont Blanc Individuel last week........... The mix of florals is superb and the raspberry note is quite evident. Pure class..........Love it.........

    The bottle is appealing as well.......... A thick wedge of glass, topped with a gleaming solid metal cap prominantly bearing the MB symbol.................

    A sound investment.

    I am really happy to announce that I have not bought or received a new scent in over three months! Good gracious, I already have enough fragrance to live happily everafter!

    London lasts a good while on me, but it does kind of stick close to the skin. Lot of compliments on this one.

    I just went out at lunch and bought Bois D'Ombrie by l'eau d'Italie.

    Expensive, but I love the boozy, woody and smokiness of this one.

    Interesting coincidence - another Basenoter gave me a sample I haven't tried yet. Now, I'm curious...if you like it rentboy, I am more interested in it.

    I would also think that your new bottle of Black Oud will be a little jealous. No?

    My bottle of Black Aoud is getting lots of attention, he was actually begging for me to find someone else for a while to give him some relief!


    I wore BA out and about on Saturday night and actually had four different people come up to me in the bar and say "OH MY GOD YOU SMELL SO GOOD etc" and one of them i didn't even know. it actually started to freak me out a little bit and make me feel self-conscious about maybe having overapplied

    hahaha

    Yesterday. I bought Lagerfeld Classic. Haven't had this one in my collection for a long while.

    Today I went into a shop looking (in vain) for Caron Alpona; since they didn't have it, I assuaged my chagrin by coming out with a 50 ml. EdP of Farnésiana. Really fresh and bright.

    It has

    Top notes: Cassie, Mimosa, Bergamot
    Heart notes: Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Violet, Lilac
    Base notes: Cassie, Opoponax, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Musk, Heliotrope

    Have lately been interested in mimosa/cassie-type scents. I have recently been given Mimosa pour Moi from L'Artisan Parfumeur, and decided to buy Calèche Fleurs de Méditérranée. Both of these feature mimosa. Farnésiana mingles it with cassie (acacia flower, a related plant). Both are very green florals and seem to me to be very uplifting. The sensual aspect of perfumes is somewhat offset by the spiritual in the case of these notes, IMO.

    Hey, JaimeB, have you tried Creed's Abuapine Acacia? I think you would like it. Loads of acacia in that one and it opens with a verbena note but turns into an acacia scent soon after. I got mine from a seller on Ebay for $40 and I noticed today that she has more!!!

    I bought Alexander McQueen Kingdom today. I know I said no more bottles until Sniffapalooza in October - but I ran out and began to crave it again after reading the thread this morning.
