I close my eyes, only for a moment and the moment's gone
All my dreams pass before my eyes a curiosity
Dust in the wind

I know some guys post a SOTD and a SOTE and I wish I had more foresight into what I would do, lol.
Anyway, the Montale Vetiver des Sables petered out much like AdP Colonia does. So SOTE was a sample wearing of Montale Aoud Silver, and much more wearable, much more projection and better longevity compared to the Vetiver.
Sel de Vetiver. Was planning Route du but I got side-tracked.
The new Prive......Oranger Alhambra and with a instant compliment.
Vintage Guerlain, Maître Parfumeur et Gantier, and other rare off-site sales.
Frederic Malle, Guerlain, by Kilian, and Amouage splits.
New atomizer and decanting supplies for sale.
For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm. - Vladimir Nabokov
After spending half the day in the car and half the day walking around in 100-degree weather in smoky air from a fire, I came home, showered (L'Erbolaria Orangerie) and lightly spritzed some:
Grey Flannel EdT
A light spritz may still be too much of this. But I like it for the moment.

Bulgari PH was nice at home, and Hanae Mori HM was perfect for a night out at a concert. HM was my wife's pick out of 4 choices. She always picks my clothes for dressy occasions anyway, so I use it to help me when I'm struck with fragrance indecisiveness.
" Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain."

I forgot to add that on my outing Yesterday I tested:
Givenchy Pi Neo---Too light on me and wasn't very impressive.
Tom Ford Black Orchid Voile de Fleur----This is really nice and I might like it better than Black Orchid
Armani Attitude---Liked this better than I thought I would
