Chevalier d' Orsay the great!
1st spray from the 8oz room spray bottle of FIERCE
(They use these bottles in the store to soak everything on the men's side in FIERCE in the morning before they open. It's sort of like the EDP version, it's much more potent. I used to spray myself with this when I worked there this summer if someone from the impact team left one laying around after they were done spraying in the store lol)
i'm sick, so my sotd is... nothing. blaaaaaaaaaah
current favourites: guerlain vetiver, trumper eucris, adp colonia
latest swag: cdg man2, lolita lempicka au masculin
next buys: keiko mecheri oliban, michael by michael kors

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
I typically don't pick my SOTD til pretty much when I step out of the shower...however, I know that tomorrow will be the PERFECT day for Burberry Brit. It's supposed to be dreary, cold, rainy, & snowy. I love it!!!

Salvador Dali Pour Homme + an ambre boost from L'Artisan Ambre Extreme. It smelled pretty good.
But I tried Diesel Plus Plus + Ambre Extreme yesterday, and the results were less than satisfactory.

Victor & Rolf, ANTIDOTE
A combination of Bvlgari Black and Pd'E Cuir Ottoman. I smell good.
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
(Creed) Millésime Imperial.

Czech & Speake No. 88
Testing Montale's Musk to Musk today from the perfumed court. Starts out floral then becomes oceanic with hints of erolfa like quailities. Has a scutty animalic musk base that can't be beat. Erolfa comes close but not this good.

"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
Guerlain Vetiver (new formulation)
Tuscany Per Uomo
Reached into my goody bag of samples from The Wolf and came up with Sonia Rykiel Le Parfum.
I see why Wolfie likes this house - this one has "top notes of hinoki wood, mimosa and passion fruit. The heart of Le Parfum is osmanthus from china, rose de mai, and iris from Tuscany. The base is tonka bean, ambered precious woods, and vanilla" and it is sumptuous and gorgeous. Ackshully maybe a bit too much for this-going-to-be-sunny day.....but maybe not!

Arome 3 again. Addicted to this.
II est de forts parfums pour qui toute matière/Est poreuse. On dirait qu'ils pénètrent le verre.
Like TGL, I'm also addicted to a D'Orsay fragrance, for me it's Etiquette Bleue. I'm also very very fond of Arome 3. Wore it alot last week.

Dior Homme Intense
I'm still not sure what I think of this one.
Black Aoud by Montale (thanks rentboy)
"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"
-- Eckhart Tolle
I'm a little slow to start today, but, I think I will have to wear either Bois du Portugal or Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille + Serge Lutens Fumerie Turque. It's warmed up here in NY so I'm trying to coordinate with the weather.
