Dolce & Gabbana pour Homme
“As if everyone, all over the world, had his daily visually artistic task; the task of being an image for others.” Peter Handke
Invasion Barbares by MDCI
It`s the one and only commercial example of Stephanie Bakouche work - and one could easily see why Turin&Sanchez named her as one of the best young perfumers right now.
(By the way, I`m really sorry that she is not creating perfumes right now but working as SA in L`Artisan flagship store in Paris. Really sorry. Her last trials I had a chance to sniff were quite promising)
Vetiver The Great!!!
Déclaration Eau Généreuse
Top Notes: Mandarin, Neroli, Coriander, Bergamot, Artemisia, Caraway, Russian Birch
Middle Notes: Cardamom, Black Pepper, Jasmine, Juniper, Orris Root, Iris, Cinnamon, Ginger
Base Notes: Cedar, Vetiver, Leather, Amber, Oakmoss, Tea Notes
A version of Déclaration that accentuates the eau-de-cologne notes. Given the complexity of the scent, this is in the nature of an eau chaude.
It's my favorite incarnation of Déclaration precisely because of the marriage of the warm elements with the eau-de-cologne style of formulation.
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
ELdO Vierges et Toreros, love the vetiver note that lingers until the morning after

Huge disappointment, for I really thought I would like this one. It's not bad smelling, just completely boring, imho.

Le Labo Rose 31
I wore it to work and enjoyed it. I'm always hesitant to wear scents with cumin-- some work on me (Erolfa, Baldessarini) and some don't (Declaration Essence). I can't say exactly why, but Rose 31 reminds me A LOT of Baldessarini, even though the notes aren't even similar.

Base notes: Oakmoss, Amber, Tonka, Musk, Leather
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
But still from my decant. I, gentleman, am the kid who takes forever on the diving board psyching himself up while other wait their turn. Damnit, a real vampire would be spraying this stuff out of an opaque black bottle.

Terre d'Hermes as SotD
Our job is to live joyfully in this world of sorrows--Joseph Campbell
Caron The 3rd Man
Today I am wearing Magnetism by Escada.
And I feel great, it's one of those fragrances which just makes me feel as sexy as hell.
For me it's Serge Lutens Encens et Lavande today.
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

I Profumi di Firenze Magnifico 9 - Pepperoncini.
Marketed as a men's frag, but it's very feminine to my nose. Not floral - a spicy Oriental that I just don't care for. First frag from iPdiF that I don't like.
