    It's a rather classic neroli-based cologne. I'm wondering where you get Iris? Wonderful stuff it sure is

    As always, I cannot make up my mind. All of these satisfy me immensely:

    It's my SOTD and it's Serge Luten's Santal de Mysore. This is by far the most satisfying and beautifully made scent I own. Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to get a bell jar from Paris and I had no idea what to choose because I love so many of the Luten's offerings. I asked around and my friend Shannon said that without a doubt, it had to be Santal de Mysore. Well, I had never tried that one and it was a blind buy. However, I am thrilled that I took the risk. It is the most true to life sandalwood balanced perfectly with spices and accented with gourmand notes like toasted coconut and cinnamon. This is breathtaking and every time I wear it I get a compliment.

    My runners up are: Aoud Lime and Black Aoud. Both long lasting with killer sillage. These were bargain basement prices from the Swiss Montale Boutique sale. God, that was stressful!

    Do decants count? If so, then Muscs Koublai Khan and Patou pour Homme for sure. I'd buy full bottles of these in a New York minute if they were available in the U.S.

    Late in the game, that is very late in the year, but I truly love Royal Briar by Carroll & Co. Everything about it is a surprise. The quality; the wonderful scent and the story of how it was resurrected after dying an untimely death at the hands of the Atkinsons people. I am not sure how I going to deal with the fact that one of my favorites costs $25 for 4 oz., but I guess I will deal with it.

    Mazzolari Lui. I had been looking for a scent with scarcely controlled earthy passion, pleasant but nearly too much, and this is it.
