    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

    A citrus bomb with decent staying power. This is nothing terribly creative, but it smells good and satisfies the desire to be fresh and upbeat. The drydown passes out of the bright citrus territory into a more astringent mode before descending into the base notes.

    Parfum d`Empire
    Ambre Russe

    By far my favourite amber fragrace ever made. Nothing comes even close, actually. This is very unique scent that is sweet, sour and salty - it is all there. I love this on summertime, and I`ve noticed that just like Yatagan, this has a structure that is a match made in heaven with beads of sweat.
    Ambre Russe brings to my mind sunny day at my favourite beach : The actual point where steamingly hot sand is cut off by the forest line, filled with warm birch trees, firs and pines, and everything that forest holds inside.
    The presentation in this is also very beautiful.

    Exrrrrrrrrrremely recommended.

    If you like lavender guys there's a reason the ladies are wearing this one.
    It's unisex enough that there is no reason you shouldn't be wearing it.

    ...a well modulated, creamy oriental. On me this is SUCH a quality scent - magnolia and tangerine are listed in the notes but it is so structured that neither really stands out. Anchored with amber and a touch of musk I would think - tres elegante

    Scent twins with Jock_With_Scents, and my ScentSon SMM and I are each wearing samples from the other today. I'm in CDG Hinoki. Okay, so this stuff is pretty darn amazing. I love the sensation of smelling intense woody notes through crystal clear water. Another one for the wish list!

    Notes: Cypress, turpentine, camphor, cedar, thyme, pine, Georgian wood, frankincense, moss and vetiver.
    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.

    Somerville Metro Man, you make me want to try that scent. I have a ROOT English Lavendar Candle and a room spray that I have to use to scent my bedroom before I go to bed.

    Like Silverbullet, I am wearing Idole

    It is 68 outside, I am in the car, air conditioning blowing on me. I am in short sleeves, so I sprayed it on my forearms as well as other areas. Wow. I had worn Idole from a sample and wife thought it bordered on soapy. Well, from a spray, it is not. Ladies, this is the scent for a guy. I love Miller Harris Feuilles de Tabac because of that fresh tabacco accord. Some fresh colognes can be soapy, or too linen-like. Feuilles is that fresh, green tobacco. Anyway, think of Feuilles as a tomato base for a sauce. Well, Idole is the refined French chef that comes and mixes in a naunced bit of spices, nothing heavy, but spicy. Makes you want to try to pick out the individual notes (which I am so, so bad at). A heavy hand and it ruins the sauce. But in the hands of a master, wow. The spices are piquant, but not in your face like Piper Nigrum. I think this would work in cool to hot weather, all but the winter. Now, admittedly, the air conditioning blew the scent around in the car, but hey, it is me and a 30 minute drive. With long sleeves and business wear, very appropriate for the office. My wife usually does not give a thumbs up to colognes (she loves her Coco, her SPring Flowers - and GIT and MI on me - and that is it) but she smelled it this morning and said, not bad. So that right there is a 7 out of 10 on the meter. Yup, gonna be a good day today.
