    Caron Third Man, love it! Also am considering between either Opium Orient Edition 2006 or Adolfo Dominguez PH.

    I found the most wonderful fragrance shop while 'evacuated' in Austin, TX - Enchante (enchanteonline). If you're in Austin check this store out. The owner was very helpful and decanted over a dozen samples for me (including a 5ml decant of Knize Ten, which is out of stock). They have a large variety of niche lines and shaving products.

    I also purchased:

    Acca Kappa 1969
    Roger & Gallet Vetyver EdC
    Fragonard EdT mini-bottle sample box (Suivez-Moi, Concerto, Veyver, Eau de Hongrie, Santal)
    plus, Taylor at Old Bond Street Lemon & Lime Shaving Cream

    Several bottles of BPAL stuff ... this little experiment is proving to be more enjoyable than I originally anticipated!

    I went to NM at lunch to buy a small bottle of Encre Noire and all they had was the big 100ml one. What am I going to do with that much? I've been trying to buy smaller and smaller amounts lately since a bottle is doing well if it gets 10 wears a year. Its inky vetiver self will have to wait.

    I tried Guerlain's 68 and really liked it.. again, nothing that blew me away. I would love to give it a skin wear rather than a quick 5 minutes on paper though. Bright, clean, with a touch of citrus.

    I tried RL Purple Label to see the similarities to Bleecker Street.. it's there, but it's a much weaker scent to me. It's a bit sharper with less of the creamy aspects I love in Bleecker Street.

    I tried Héritage and though I liked the drydown quite a bit, the topnotes were a little too bracing for this excursion. The lovely ladies were already irritating me. It's very classic, but I think I could easily wear it with success now.

    I revisited AdP Colonia Assoluta and Intensa... still like them both, but they weren't what I wanted on this visit. Another time, my friends.

    I moved on to the Jo Malone area and tried Amber Lavender, Lime Basil Mandarin, Pomegranite Noir, and a new one called Sweet Lime & Cedar.

    I liked the AL opening, but loved the drydown. The classic lavender in the opening faded to a well structured, warm scent with just a touch of sweetness to balance it out.
    I loved the LBM, but wasn't sure if I needed more in the family of what I have a couple of already.
    I liked the Pom Noir, but the tart gumminess of the pomegranite just isn't something I could get into.
    I also really liked the Sweet Lime & Cedar... there was something so familiar with the type of cedar they used.. like a sweet atlas. The drydown struck me as a bit feminine so I decided I'd research it later and maybe revisit it.

    I decided to buy a small bottle of the Amber Lavender.

    Of course they were out and didn't know when they'd get it back. Of course. Of course I could order it and have it delivered to me for free. Of course I had to buy something since I was there.

    I said whatever and bought a bottle of Lime Basil Mandarin... and damn glad I did. It's on my hand now and I love it. I don't care if it's in the same genre of others I have. Now I have more.
    The end.

    Jo Malone Sweet Lime and Cedar

    I have been wanting to try this one. The notes sounded very interesting to me. The SA at Saks told me they would be getting a tester of it soon, but it hasn't arrived yet

    Ah, ya beat me to it! It's on the NM.com site after all. Try NM near you.. the Jo Malone guy said he just got it in today and was unboxing them while I was there.

    Opium EDP

    I have finally ordered the powerhouse oriental greatness that i have been looking for. Here is the thing though, this stuff is so powerful and elegant that i cant wear it everyday or even if i go out to grab a beer in a t-shirt and jeans. On the other hand, it will be wonderful when i am all dressed up and ready to woo some fine young lady friends.
