Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

Vetyver by Givenchy (third time from sample - thanks petruccijc)
A vetiver fragrance worthy of respect and admiration. If I didn't already own the vintage EdC Vetiver by Guerlain, I think the Givenchy would've dazzled me more.
For now, though my heart is Guerlain.
Bond No. 9 - Andy Warhol Lexington Avenue from sample.
A great, contemporary gourmand with a suede feel. Somewhat
similar to Serge Lutens Daim Blond.

Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter. (Keats)
R De Capucci
Softsoap Cucumber Melon wash
Crabtree & Evelyn Nomad shave cream
Mazzolari Ambra EdT (sample) - so far a nice honey amber. Feels like a nice casual scent. Seems to be short-lived.
Catherine Deneuve: "You should put scent where you like to be kissed."
I am wearing Ava Luxe Vamp, deep with insense, which would be great on a guy.
A healthy application of Thierry Mugler Ice*Men
Messe de Minuit. A damp fragrance for a damp day.
Lime Oud from Montale for the morning!

Caron's Third man. Yesterday, Caron's PuH. What is this Caron fetish I seem to be going through? At one time, not that long ago, I had none of the Caron's. Now, got em all. Like em all except that LAnarchriste is a learning experience to a degree for me.
Acqua di Parma Colonia
Guerlain Vetiver...and I didn't get in before the lock for Saturday, but I wore the same yesterday too.
I'm giving my new bottle of Frederic Malle's Outrageous! another wearing today. It's quite a 'happy' scent on me!
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!
Hinoki for me today because I wanted my fragrance to make me melt!
