    Watch out for that Cuir d'Iris... I found I had to immediately have a bottle. I think you mentioned exactly the PGs I haven't tried yet.

    Anyway - received as gifts today:

    CdG Hinoki

    Ineke Chemical Bonding

    Thanks to my fiancee who somehow managed to purchase these without me noticing while we were shopping together.

    (if there are any other Ineke fans out there, I know of a store that's selling their Ineke stock at 50% off because they're no longer carrying the line. PM me for info)

    Default Re: Today I Bought - October '08 Edition

    During this month I got rid of some fragrances and bought the following:

    Azzaro pour Homme
    B*Men
    Boss Number One (Will return. See reason below).
    Cubano Gold

    Is it just me, or is Boss Number One a bit mellow? I've read reviews that say that it's really potent with great silleage but I find it to be calm not too long after the initial spray. I really like the smell but after reading how it's supposed to be potent and powerful I am left underwhelmed by its strength. Is the strength and potency perhaps overrated? Can anyone speak about this? I think I'm going to return it because it's just not as powerful as I had hoped judging from the reviews. It's a shame since I really like the smell but it's just too damn weak in my eyes after I was hoping it would be a silleage monster.

    Chant d'Aromes by Guerlain



    A used, refill (recharge?) Eau de Toilette bottle (not sure if it's vintage or new juice). Sparkling, stiff chypre - reminds me of Y by YSL, White Linen by Estee Lauder and/or Mitsouko by Guerlain minus the peach, with more fizzy florals.

    Today I went out and bought Paco Rabanne Black XS. I smelled a sample I had yesterday, and I used half the sample just smelling it in the air. And since it's so cheap, I got the 100ml, so it's going to last me for a while.

    I also got a tin of the shower gel and after shave as a gift. All in all I'm pretty satisfied!

    Not "bought," because I bought it and prepaid it a while ago, but rather I received Cartier Roadster today. It seems just as nice as when I smelled the tester and decided to buy it. Now to find an opportunity for a full wearing...

    Cambridge Chemists raised their price of C/S scents to $115 recently and with Luckyscent now carrying them and charging a lovely $162 for them, I decided to go ahead and get a bottle of No. 88 last night. I also really enjoy Cuba and Oxford & Cambridge, so they may be on the not so distant horizon as well.

    As a special treat, my spouse drove me up to Mendocino yesterday and while there, we stopped in various shops, including one called Perfumes Mendo, presided over by the gracious Judith Brandman. I found there, among other things, the two which I bought: Chevignon and Keiko Mecheri Bois de Santal. I will post about these after I have had a chance to give them a full wearing.
