    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

    Notes: Lime, Pepper, Ginger, Star Anise, Cedar
    A fresh, slightly chypré scent with a simple opening and a smooth drydown. The notes remain throughout in harmony; though the combination of notes gives a feeling of complexity,
    the scent is essentially linear, with even the lime note persisting into the drydown. Essentially close to the skin, the sillage diminishes fairly quickly,
    but the impression reemerges with moderate exertion. Simple, elegant, fresh; this is a great scent for work.

    Hey Dimitri, Thanks! I've never seen, or even heard of L' air du air du desert marocain before. As I perused the different posts, this bottle really grabbed my attention, I kept staring at the label, very cool, (imho) interesting name as well. So, right to the reviews and wow! It feels good to get excited about a new fragrance again, I was starting to think I was loosing my enthusiasm, that enthusiasm for the next interesting acquisition ? The hunt begins! Thanks again. BTW - I didn't see your review of the scent. ????

    Ramiroh, hi... Im actually asked this a fair bit, surprisingly.

    From L-R: Black Orchid (Tom Ford), Love Potion No.9 (Penhaligons), Scent Intense (Costume National), Narciso Rodriguez For Him (Narciso Rodriguez), Carthusia Uomo (Carthusia), Eau d'Orange Verte (Hermes), Cologne (Thierry Mugler) and Colonia Intensa (Acqua di Parma).

    I dare say Ill be adding Tauer's LDDM in the days to come. Another "cant live without it" scent!

    Was in Kiehl's over the weekend picking up my facial moisturizer and got a sample of:

    Kiehl's Original Musk

    Not bad, and much better than I remember Jovan on me back in the 70's. Of course I wouldn't be wearing platform shoes now either.

    Testing Parfums de Nicholai New York today. Enjoying the dry, bitter green citrus very much. Anyone else get a bit of baby aspirin note? (In the US, baby aspirin is orange-flavored...)
    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
