    Default SotD - Monday, 29 Sep 08

    1776 Russian Leather
    by Elsha

    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.

    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.

    We'll see.

    In the last 31 weeks you're the first.

    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.

    Rochas Man

    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.

    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..

    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
