As of quarter till 1 AM here on the East coast, I just spritzed Ambre Sultan as a relief before my final exam in machine design tomorrow afternoon!
(2007)Top notes: Orange, Bergamot, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Rosemary
Heart notes: Ylang-Ylang, Violet, Patchouli, Thyme
Base notes: Myrrh, Moss, Vetiver, Musk
A chypre of unusually masculine character. In spite of the inclusion of ylang-ylang in the formula, this isn't remotely a stereotypical feminine scent in feeling. It may be the one note that rings false in this chime; it seems out of place with the more herbal floral of lavender, and certainly with eucalyptus and the other herbals. In conjunction with the musk, the sweet floral makes this scent a bit powdery at first, although that impression diminishes after the first twenty minutes or so. Then it blends more smoothly into the rest of the formula and largely loses the powdery aspect. This fragrance took a little getting used to for me; but once past the rough spot, I now like it quite a bit. In the end, it comes out as a slyly suave and even slightly rakish bit of work, the sort of thing to wear when one is in the mood for fun and a little taste of the offbeat in life.
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"

Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

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
Prada Amber Pour Homme
Caron L'Anarchiste. Been in the mood for this rather often lately.
Pasha de Cartier (from a sample)
After several warm and sunny holiday-days with Guerlain's Vetiver, Vetiver pour Elle and Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune, it's time for a warm perfume - it's turning windy, grey and rainy here in Denmark! So it's Héritage EdP today. As usual, I get reminded of how good and nostalgic it is for me. Pure pepper, coriander, cedar wood and vanilla. (Should I have sprayed more sparingly? Gosh it's strong.)

Bulgari Pour Homme Soir from a mini. I recently bought a pretty cool 5-pack of Bulgari minis from taxfree shop on a cruise. Soir seems to me like a nice mix between Pour Homme and Blu.
Today Roberto is my fragrance twin.
