    I am supposed to be testing Roadster today, but my hand reached for the MB bottle instead and I'm glad I did...I love this stuff.

    More Vetiver testing today...

    Left arm: Bois 1920 Vetiver Ambrato
    Right arm: Hermes Hermessence Vetiver Tonka

    Vetiver Ambrato---I am not sure I smell any vetiver! Bois 1920 as a house has a tendency to be very light, and so I really poured on the sample. However, I think all the Bois 1920 fragrances must be sprayed to get the full effect. I can't say I really know what is going on with VA, it is THAT subtle. On the plus side, the sweet amber is a light one, and could be a great day-time scent.

    Vetiver Tonka---ouch, near asphyxiation! I thought all the Hermessences were faint and short lived, so I poured this one on, too. The beginning is really more of a burnt caramel, probably from the Tonka. The vetiver comes out a bit later, and unfortunately, has a sort of "fennel" quality to it. That is a very unattractive scent for my skin which tends to amplify this in some scents. Then, the real bomb hit with very heavy sour (probably citrus) and woody notes along with the vetiver. Plus some smoke. It was really harsh and slightly nauseating (gave me a terrible headache). In the late drydown, the citrus lingers and smells of bug spray. I can't say I would recommend this one. It really lacks the refinement of the ones I sampled yesterday.

    I'm wearing Costume National Scent Intense tonight from a sample. I'm really doing a 360 on this line... I bought Scent blindly last year and it just didn't work on me and I never looked further into the line. Recently, my Barney's SA sent me a 21 sample and I loved it so much I bought a bottle. On my most recent order, she put in a Scent Intense sample and I love it, too! I think a bottle of this will be in order as well.

    I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!

    Habit Rouge EdT by Guerlain.
    This has to be my lucky fragrance. Everything seems to go well on HR days, just like today. Finishing work well before a deadline, going out and having loads of fun, and coming back to a 2:00 am prayer in a dark and cold mosque, lit only by a single weak white lamp for a great spiritual experience that was magnified by the fact that I was really half asleep and could barely stand on my feet.
    Looking for a sample of Gucci Envy Me.

    Etro Sandalo layered over Villoresi Uomo. Can't say the effect was particularly artful but I put Uomo on and it just wasn't enough for the heavy weather we're having.
