1776 Russian Leather
It’s time to start hauling out the big boys!
A phenomenal birch-tar leather highly reminiscent of
Royal English Leather, at a fraction of the cost.
From scentedsalamander: “The notes I thought I could discern
are the following: clove, tarragon, citrus, perhaps orange, ambergris,
sandalwood, a very dirty musk, cinnamon, orris, oakmoss, birch, myrrh,
and soft woods, perhaps rosewood.”
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

Can I still be called a Basenoter if I only wear three or four different fragrances a week? I'm starting to feel a bit guilty.
But RGPH seems the perfect scent for me for office wear, so I continue to reach for it.

It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Le 3me Homme
Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter. (Keats)
Gonna spend a coupla days with Jo Malone this week - grace a Black Cat!!
First up: White Jasmine and MInt. A pretty fresh opening that's mostly sunny mint that quickly simmers down. The jasmine hums along but both fade quickly - a problem I have with many (but not all) JMs.
Did y'all catch the review of Paestum Rose by our own stud muffin Sloan_8013 in Sniffapalooza???!! http://www.sniffapaloozamagazine.com/index.html
Couldn't be more proud!!

For me, today, I was in the mood for something new. When we were nominating scents for the upcoming SSD I noticed there was one I didn't own and that's what I'm wearing today after getting it recently.
This is very reminiscent of A*Men with a lot of the same notes and accords, just not turned up to 11. That subtlety is appealing to me.

Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....
Tuscany by Aramis as SotD. An 80s classic that seems to fit perfectly today

Miller Harris Feuilles de Tabac
I had one of those mornings where you just stand dumbfounded, unsure of what to wear. I ended up reaching for Bond No. 9 Bleecker Street... It had been a while since I'd worn it, so it was due for some love!
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!
Black Aoud by Montale
This morning I have to meet with some people and I wanted to give off a powerful, don't-mess-with-me aura. BA seemed like a good choice!
Never got around to spraying the Chanel Bois des Îles last night, so that's my SotD.
Looking for: Vento Canale, da Gianni Campagna.
CREED- Silver Mountain Water
I like to seduce women without speaking.

YSL L'Homme. From a neat little .33 OZ minispray glass vial that comes in a leather case. Great travel packaging. This is a very fresh scent.

Many Happy ret'ns on yr. 27th, NELSON29!
It's supposed to get to 24 degrees C in E-town today... time to break out Guerlain Vetiver.
- A spritz of Caron may be quite continental, but (a flacon of) Guerlain is a perfumisto's best friend...

In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Extreme
3 'negative' comments today. I think I somewhat overapplied into a vanillic frenzy though -- my close friend said it smelled terrible because it was "an okay, but overly strong scent at a very wrong time." It gave her a headache. Today was exam day -- so maybe the headache would pull down other people's scores.. haha.. actually.. nah..

JHL by Aramis (1982)
Guerlain's Mitsouko EdP, new formulation. I like this formulation for its potent, waxy peach note, although its force lets the beloved vetiver wait quite some time (whereas the new EdT shows the vetiver from the beginning). The EdP strength was also almost a bit too powerful for the office, so I discreetly had to rub my wrist a bit below the desk with a handkerchief
