    Replaced my small decant with a full bottle of Route du Vetiver by MPG (in the red glass - original formulation, thank-you-very-much). Lovely, dirty vetiver...just the way I like it.

    I bought my husband L'Occitane Green Tea with Mint today, they have a 25% off code good through the weekend. My favorite for men is Orange Leaves, but he's more the fresh, minty type and likes green tea. He doesn't wear a fragrance, but I thought he might like this one. If he doesn't, I'll take it.

    I went into Nordstrom and popped for Tom Ford for Him. I wasn't going to get this, but wait for the Extreme. But then I thought again...

    It's not earthshaking, but decent. Of course, we expected more, but for $60 a bottle? Get real. The Extreme will be better, but this is as good as a lot of stuff I've paid more than $60 for.

    So I got it.

    I found a bottle of YSL Opium EdT today at a pretty good price and bought it. Not really very much like Opium pour Homme, but pretty nice in its own right. Comes on a little strong, but quickly mellows into something warm and soothing...

    Filling out the "classics" category in my wardrobe, just bought:
    • Trussardi Uomo
    • Boucheron Jaïpur Homme EDP
    • Cacharel for men

    Listed in order of increasing blindness. I've tested the Trussardi on my skin. I've sniffed the Boucheron on a blotter (and anyway, I'm slowly acquiring examples of all of Annick Menardo's best work). I've never sampled the Cacharel, but I'm putting my faith in the_good_life and others who sing its praises.
