    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

    Égoïste
    (1990)
    Jacques Polge

    Top Notes:
    Sicilian Tangerine, Brazilian Rosewood
    Middle Notes: Coriander, Damask Rose
    Base Notes: Sandalwood, Vanilla, Ambrette seed
    A spicy, rose oriental with good sillage and staying power. A bit on the formal side, but not impossible for more casual occasions. The rosewood in the head note is critical here; it sweetens the top and moderates the acidity of the citrus. Also a brilliant touch is the coriander and the vegetable musk of ambrette seed. These two combine with the oriental elements in the base to enliven the central floral note of rose. Very smooth and elegant. One feels debonair when wearing this.

    Yr good bud,

    Continuing to wear YSL this week something funny happened... I wore Kouros Tattoo edition to work and as I was about to close the bar, a guy and girl came in for one last drink. The girl was cute and I wanted to talk to her-- I wasn't really sure if she was WITH the guy or not. As I approached, I couldn't believe my nose-- he was wearing YSL L'Homme! It was going to be the battle of the YSLs. Me with my Kouros limited edition, and him with his modern L'Homme.

    Anyway, there wasn't really a "battle", though I did talk to the girl and I entertained them both for a bit. I decided I was too lazy to be a c*ckblocker. Anybody cool enough to also be wearing anything from YSL was OK in my book-- even if it was that bastard stepchild, L'Homme. It smelled good anyway.

    So now that I'm home from work I decided to switch over to...

    Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme. I'm actually starting to like it.

    Actually from a generous sample from Gerald. I stumbled over it last night as I was scrounging through a bunch of samples. Duh!!! People have been writing about it and I had forgotten I had a sample!! I'm hoping either the Oslo or the Barcelona airport taxfree has it in about a weeks time!

    After wearin my YSL Memorial out now I'm going to do what I intended to do with the month of June and that's go through my Samples.
    To start I wanted to try another Jo Malone so I'm wearing the standard bearer of the line:

    Jo Malone Lime, Basil and Mandarin

    So far pretty nice the basil note adds something to the typical citrus scent.

    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

    Guerlain's Coriolan. Yesterday, I described it as "brutal-bitter gin mixed with wet grass and soil". Today I'd say: Coriolan is brutal-bitter gin poured over the base of a new-felled tree.
