Versailles pour homme
....from a tiny little village in Tuscany, though it really should've been France.
From a sample from my Scentmother ComDiva I am wearing:
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.
The fan club for this one just added a new member.

...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. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

I'm wearing Demeter Mojito today, something light and fun for a day off.
I've trademarked the color bleu
From a (Turin rated) one-star yesterday to a 5-star.
Bond no. 9 - Chinatown
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.

To recover from yesterday's one-star wonder SSD (not that ML is bad, not at all) and due to another fantastically hot day (for this area at least), I'm allowing my nose to recover and refresh using:
