Gucci Pour Homme II
Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels so good.
CreedBois du Portugal
My own unique custom blend from the Martine Micallef perfume bar.
It's rather sharp and dry with lavender in the beginning but dries down to a sandalwood dominated base with a subtle leathery note.
Rive Gauche pour Homme.
Versace Pour Homme for the second day in a row from a sample.
As with all frags that find their way on to my 'potential purchase list' - I like to wear them a few days in a row, both to better evaluate their progression, and also to see if and/or how quickly I grow bored or sick of them. So far this is passing the test of a fresh frag that is suitable for a mid-20 something guy like myself, that has some depth and elegance to it. The only other contender I've found is Stardust for men. I'd like to try Gucci PH II again, and really need to try the minty offerings by Cartier and Guerlain. Any other recommendations?

Parfums de Nicolaï
Patricia de Nicolaï
Top Notes: Bergamot, Sicilian Lemon, Thyme
Middle Notes: Cloves, Cinnamon, Black Pepper, Pimento
Base Notes: Oakmoss, Vetiver, Amber
Very much in the classic mold, this is a winner. It is elegant, restrained but not diffident, and it has a quiet confidence and dignity about it that bespeaks its breeding. Patricia de Nicolaï is a grandaughter of Pierre Guerlain, brother of the famous Jacques; perhaps one can see in this that there may be some truth in the Guerlain family mystique. New York is a beauty, a structured composition with a clearly discernible development. It says sophistication and style, but in a timeless mode. I don't think this one can easily be forgotten. Its balance, tenacity, subtle development, and sillage all make it a classic.
Yr good bud,

I love cologne.

Opus 1870 (Penhaligon's)
When I woke up this morning, I could still smell Habit Rouge L'Extrait on my arm. It was very different from the normal Habit Rouge drydown that I know so well. I had huge problems finding a description. First of all it was less sweet. I think that what I smelled was more woody, more leathery (floral?) and more spicy than I normally smell from the Habit Rouge drydown.
Today, it's Eau de Shalimar - it's so edible, so readily likeable, like some delicious pastry. I love to walk around smelling like some piece of Guerlain pastry.
