    I read the thread about Santa Maria Novella Ginestra a little while ago, and ran down to Alabaster, a little shop about five blocks from my home in San Francisco, where they carry many of the SMN line. They had it; I bought it.

    Really fresh and green, smells like broom flowers and other green things. There doesn't seem to be a list of notes anywhere I looked. I just posted a review in the Basenotes Directory.

    A small bottle (30 ml) of Paul Smith Story-a summer,refreshing scent for sure.
    A small bottle (30 ml) of the latest Trussardi Inside for man.
    A bottle of Dunhill Fresh,which smells,well,fresh!Is there another Basenoter to like this one?I am the only who finds it really nice?
    A bottle of Baldessarini Ambre-classy and sophisticated,a bargain-price buy too!
    A sample (7 ml) of Donna Karan Men.I already have Unlimited ,which is considered as "DK for Men Light".In my opinion there is no reason to have them both since they smell quite similar.I simlpy wish to last longer because the longevity of Unlimited is very very poor.
    And then the King,a full bottle of Ungaro I.Ah,the memories...
    It's never too late to mend.

    In order to help the poor Xmas sales and boost the economy (while continuing to put a downward spiral on my bank account since just coming off a vacation) I ventured out into the mad rush of holiday shoppers the past two days and managed to make two fragrance purchases.

    Narciso Rodriguez for Him

    L'Altra Follia di Aquarama - listed as woody, spicy. Containing tobacco leaves, basil leaves, star anize, cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, rose pepper, vetiver, cedarwood, and liquorice.

    SA told me it's discontinued, that was motivation enough for me to order it online, they wanted a ludicrous price in the store. I wanted it anyways, but it being discontinued was the moivation I needed to buy it instead of just waiting and waiting.

    I've been contemplating of ordering a full bottle all day long. After all, this is a lemon fragrance - but it's soooooooo good! Long story short I finally broke down.

    Trying to imagine how refreshing Acqua Viva will be come summertime.

    Robbie and I were 'raving' about this stuff when we tested it this past summer. I agree - almost a study on lemon, lemon peel, lemon rind. Beautifully done. Enjoy neoty26.

    I just purchased Bvlgari Black this evening.

    It's a scent I've read about and have been very curious. It bought it at one of those overpowering perfume places in an outlet mall, so it was difficult to discern the scent there.

    I applied a little to my wrist and stepped out into the cold. Turned right back around and went back in and bought it.

    I couldn't wait to apply it tonight, so on it went. I'm really enjoying it.

    I'm a total novice to scents, so I can't quite describe it just yet.

    Santa brought me coal, so I finally splurged to pick up a bottle of Bois du Portugal from NM to celebrate the holidays and graduation! I was kind of shocked that after sniffing one of the small tester vials how much different the scent was from the store (supposedly it was a 2007 bottle).

    At the last of the old year, I decided to get Angéliques sous la Pluie from the Frédéric Malle Éditions de Parfums line. I tested this earlier in the year, and thought it wouldn't have much longevity or sillage. In fact, because of the low concentration of oils (listed at just 4&#37, that may still be the case; nevertheless, I find this too beautiful and refreshing to pass up.

    The notes:

    Frédéric Malle Angéliques sous la Pluie (2003)--Jean-Claude Ellena
    Top note: Pink peppercorns, Coriander
    Middle note: Angelica, Juniper berries
    Base note: Musk, Cedar

    For this month, I bought Guerlain's Vetiver, Creed's Himalaya, YSL's Opium pour homme, and mini bottles of Gaultier2, Mont Blanc's Individuel and Jo Malone's Pomegranate Noir. The GV is doing well on me.. used it for daywear four times already. Himalaya is my second Creed fragrance...next to the SMW which I used up months ago...and umm, quite a disappointment on first outing. I hope it'll grow , though. Well, the Opium I bought as a continuum of our (my wife's and I) "institutional patronage" with YSL frags (he he) since 70's,80's Kouros/Opium days.Still works! Nose-tested the other three samples. Gaultier2 - typical JPG to me...strong, scathing, sensual. Individuel - so-so. Pomegranate noir - it's a gourmand frag all right. Hope to convince myself enough to try it on skin. Wish list - Serge Luten's OV, Creed's Millisime Imperiale and Jaipur Pour Homme.

    My last buy was Tom Ford for Men EDT (regular version) and who says that this scent have no longtivity...there must something wrong with the nose...or lost the sense of smell...I LOVE IT more than the Extreme Version...which is also an EDT, but more expensive...and I miss the citrus topnotes...last the whole day...maximum 4 sprays!!!
