    Cerruti
    Nino Cerruti
    (1979)

    Top Notes:
    Bergamot, Galbanum, Green Notes, Lemon, Mint, Juniper Berry
    Middle Notes: Carnation, Cinnamon, Fruit Notes, Jasmine, Pine, Thyme
    Base Notes: Amber, Benzoin, Cedar, Fir Balsam, Moss, Musk
    Very green and slightly soapy. I like this one because it keeps a tradition alive that seems almost to have died out. It smells good, fresh and green, and it backs that up with a good, solid construction. The foundation of this in woody oriental notes give it presence and lasting power. The middle notes with jasmine and carnation are sweet and spicy, which makes for a kind of "romantic" feel to this scent. Moss and fir in the base make the drydown a little different from today's usual. This is an older, fresher style of woody-oriental accord.

    I am wearing Le Dandy by D'orsay. It has spicy top notes with sandlewood and touch of flowers which makes it very different than any other perfumes i have ever worn. I have kept this perfume for special occasions or to change my mood. This perfume is for people to make bold impression that they are not afraid to be different.

    Obsession for Men (1986)

    One of those 4 designer scents that will most likely stay forever in my Top 10. It`s sweet, masculine, timeless, sensual, animalic. To me the drydown is still one of the best ever in male fragrances.
    When it comes to perfumes, this is by far the best thing America has ever produced.

    This is a strange one. I'll need to wear it a few more times to make up my mind about it.

    It's going to be another lovely day here in the UK [who says us Brits aren't obsessed by the weather? ] so today its going to be that strawberry-lolly-dropped-in-soil nostalgiafest known as Paco Rabanne Black XS.

    Creed Millesime Imperial

    I have rediscovered this recently as I have dropped my total aversion to aquatic notes.
    It really is excellent.

    Still recovering from the busy day at work yesterday, everything hurts!

    Put some Givenchy Eau Torride on earlier, it is the one I will definitely want to return to and retry at a later time.

    Will probably wear something rosy today, was thinking Paestum Rose may be?

    It's a lovely spring day here in Stockholm, the temperature is about 20* Celsius and I'm wearing Aria di Capri by Carthusia. Only have a sample, but I feel I must have this one for summer!

    Miss R. I love SD Laguna (still cherish that little roll-on Miss M. sent to me) -- one of them "Who could have thought?" fragrances, where marine/citrucy freshness and warm/sensual heart interchange and come in waves. Wear it in good health!
