Used a gillette aftershave and sprayed some RIVE GAUCHE POUR HOMME!

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds it's morning, and is refreshed. -Kahlil Gibran

No scent today. I've got a big workout planned after work and don't like any scents prior to working out. I'll be heading to bed shortly thereafter, so I don't see much point in spraying after, either.
On a positive note though, I just picked up a bottle of Ungaro II from a fellow member here and should receive it in a few days. It'll be my first experience with Civet. I'm a bit nervous!

AMBER POUR HOMME by PRADA
Penhaligon - Racquets Formula
by Serge Lutens
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
Iskander (Parfum d'Empire)
cedrat, mandarin en grapefruit, amber and musk
"expressing the ardour and athlethic beauty which rises in the thermal baths and stadiums of the Ancient Greek Empire"
That soo doesn't sound like me, when I get up in the morning and stare in the mirror...
"The world is ruled by letting things take their course. It cannot be ruled by interfering." Lao Tze
Testing a sample vial of Juliette Has a Gun Lady Vengeance. "A very thorny Bulgarian rose marries patchouli and vanilla."
I think it's very nicely executed, though not as interesting as some (I'm thinking Rose d'Homme specifically). Lady Vengeance may need to go on my wishlist anyhow, because the name is fantastic.
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
"Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
I'm wearing Dior Addict today.
I've trademarked the color bleu
I need to have a break from scents for a few days. I have a flu with ear inflammation and can barely distinguish Dior Homme from Live Jazz. I hope my sense of smell will return to normal soon...
First day with my bottle of Dior Homme Intense
Parfum d'Empire - Iskander
Everyone is entitled to his own opinions, but not his own facts. Daniel Moynihan
Absinth - Nasomatto

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.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Prada. Great for a Monday at work.
First it was snowing, then it was snowing huge snowflakes and raining, then it went to heavy rain, then freezing rain, then light rain and snow, then a little hail, then back to rain/snow mixture now.
Cold, but Gucci Envy is keeping me warm.
