    Default Today I bought (January 2008)

    Went to Nordstrom and found they were featuring YSL L'Homme, which I did not buy when it first hit the market earlier last year (2007). I decided it wasn't so bad, and so I got a 50 ml. bottle. Any thoughts on this one? I know some people didn't think much of it, including me, back then...
    Yr good bud,

    Ordered a bottle of Tauer's L'Air du Desert Moracain from Luckyscent, got free shipping and then next day, the $15 off deal, but that means I saved $8 instead of $15. Oh well, it shipped.

    God help me! Thursday I impulsively called Bergdorf Goodman in New York and ordered "Derby". I am excited since I like this classic discontinued fragrance but the $190.00 price tag is somewhat staggering! Am thinking of ordering "Yatagan" soon since I like it very much as well.

    On Jan. 15 I returned the Derby to Bergdorf Goodman. Went out of town on business and when I came back I tried a shot from my vial from TPC and decided I liked it OK but not enough to justify the price and the fact that it was a splash bottle 125 ml. Will definitely be purchasing Yatagan soon though.

    Due to that Tuscany thread yesterday, I ordered some samples of Tuscany Pour Uomo Forte samples off Ebay. Loved the original Tuscany so I'm interested to smell the difference in this discontinued version.

    I'm going to Neiman Marcus for a scent of Jicky to see if I really want it. ( I know that I have the name--A certain mystique of the fragrance dug into my psyche and I fell in love) Now I have to go on the blind date.

    Yesterday, I bought Narciso Rodriguez for Him and Chanel Egoiste Platinum...I love fougeré scents. I already owned YSL Rive Gauche and Creeds Green Irish Tweed...wonderful!!!!
    Strange is that Chanel Egoiste Platinum got a middle-note, which reminds me of GIT...who else smells that?

    It seems I've been going a little crazy this month. I actually haven't bought any frags since my bottle of Dior Homme in October, but thus far in January I've bought:

    Nino Cerutti PH (from the_good_life)
    Scent Intense (from pluran)
    Comme des Garcons Parfum (eBay)
    A bunch of samples from Aus Liebe Zum Duft as well as a few decants from the_good_life.

    Right now I'm waiting for evertything to arrive. This will be a great month for me, but not for my wallet I suppose

    $70.00 for half an ounce at TPC for regular customers. with another discount with semi-secret handshake at checkout.

    I'll take 1ml please till I know what it smells like.

    Exclusive to Colette in Paris, Vanille 44 eau de parfum features notes of bergamot, incense, gaiac wood, mandarin, vanilla, muscenone, pipol and hedione. Created by Alberto Morillas, Le Labo describes it as "Vanille 44 doesn't smell like vanilla. It is a complex association of amber and woody incense that will unveil after its first taste of musk, a profound smell of vanilla. This fragrance is just a poem. "

    Last time TPC had a sale like this (Quand Vient La Pluie split) I passed on getting a decant in favor of a sample... I regret that decision as it was sold out by the time I received the sample..

    For anyone else interested use the code COLETTE at checkout for $20 off vanille (not affil...)

    Yep - got mine too! It's on the way according to TPC - with the discount coupon, it wasn't a bad deal! I am looking forward to it! I really like Le Labo... I have Rose 31 - probably my favorite rose; I tried Vetiver 46, and it was very nice - so smoky - something like CdG 2 man, but just "more", and I tried Patchouli 24 - perhaps not my favorite, but still unique and enjoyable. I hope the trend continues with Vanille!

    Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather - I tried a sample, and was impressed, tried it a few more times and I liked it even more... so instead of spreading my free cash thin on several other leathers, I went to a larger amount of Tuscan Leather! Looking forward to using up the bottle of this one!

    My Bois du Portugal 30 ml. bottle is getting dangerously low, so I swung by Neiman's today and got a 75 ml. bottle to keep the stock going.

    By "new formulation" I mean:

    NOT the 1934 Dunhill ("Dunhill for Men") but the one released in 2003 ("Dunhill").

    In trying to be extra clear I managed to confuse things! ... sorry!

    I was offered today from a retail source a BRAND NEW 2.5 oz. Vintage Tabarome TESTER
    I went to place my eyes on it at lunch. I have to have it because I would never use 8.4 ozs from a Flacon.
    This fell right into my lap and I am a very happy boy right now. I financed the purchase from previous sales from my drobe, so my New Years Resolution is intact. WooHoo!!! Oh, yes I have had 3 full wearings of VT before and I love it, so no blind buy here.

    Tuscan Leather
    Bois Rouge
    Noir de Noir
    Oud Wood

    From Dawn Spencer Hurwitz:
    Inner Sanctum
    Aphrodisia
    Black Leather
    Exotic Wood (accord) no.1
    Festive (Holiday Fragrance 2000)
    Fresh Mown Hay
    le Chevalier d'Automne
    Modern Iris
    Soft Carnation
    Nuit de Noel type

    Dior Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir

    Mona di Orio Carnation ... which is incredible, ps btw

    plus, I've been swapping like a fool, although, technically that's not buying, it's bartering

    Yesterday i ordered a bottle of Isotta Fraschini Uomo from First in Fragrance. I have to say, this one sounds rather nice. At least in my mind it does. Not to mention, i've had a craving for Italian fragrances lately. My fingers are crossed...

    HI Jaime---I bought YSL l'Homme at Sephora last week. Something refreshing and lightly sweet with a slight amber feel to it. I liked and bought it. I read someone on BN calling it L'ame---that's ok too--not for everyone. Got a couple compliments at work on it as well--which doesn't happen too much.

    I got my samples in from the perfumed court. I'm having a blast experiencing these. Taken from the Perfumed Court website. I am a huge fan of Serge Lutens, l'Artisan and Malle.

    From Boys will be boys sampler:

    Bvlgari Black - This one goes on a little strange, but it is a great, classic men's scent.
    Ormonde Jayne Isfarkand - woody and great. You'll smell like a guy, but a really classy guy
    Narciso Rodriguez for Him - One of the recent entries into the men's scent market, this one follows more of a classic men's scent line, but has some nice quirks
    Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan - Simply one of the best amber scents ever made. Earthy and elegant.
    From Mens Luxary Sampler Advanced:

    Tom Ford Private Blend Tobacco Vanille (1/2 ml)- A great tobacco scent.
    Ormonde Jayne Isfarkand - woody and great. You'll smell like a guy, but a really classy guy
    Narciso Rodriguez Musc for Him (1/2 ml)- One of the recent entries into the men's scent market, this one follows more of a classic men's scent line, but has some nice quirks
    Clive Christian No. 1 for Men (1/4 ml) - Beautiful, masculine and elegant.
    Andy Tauer Lonestar Memories - A perfect leather scent
    Armani/Prive Ambre Soie (1/2 ml) - wonderful, luxurious amber
    Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur EDP - Simply a great musk scent without being overpowering
    Hermessence Poivre Samarcande -- peppery and rich
    JAR Shadow (1/4 ml)-- The is dark and rooty and wonderful
    Le Labo Patchouli 24 - patchouli, birch tar. Dark and smokey and perfect
    MDCI Ambre Topkapi - Rich and elegant
    Serge Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan - The ultimate musk scent

    From Beginner Niche and Classic Sampler (mostly womens) got this mostly for Tabac Blonde:

    Chanel Bois des Iles
    Caron Parfum Sacre
    Patou 1000
    Chanel Cuir de Russie
    Caron Tabac Blond parfum (1/2 ml)
    Hermessence Osmanthe Yunnan
    Serge Lutens Bois et Musc
    Bvlgari Au the Blanc

    Serge Lutens Fleur d'Oranger
    Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile

    That is an extremely complex list of scents. My advice - take your time smelling these JickyMan. Many of those listed need your single and undivided attention and concentration to really appreciate, understand and 'get' before you can honestly love them or dismiss them.

    Interested to see how you like the Hermes scents and the Black March by CBIHP.
