Seek not the favor of the multitude; it is seldom got by honest and lawful means. But seek the testimony of few; and number not voices, but weigh them. - Immanuel Kant

There are three kinds of people in this world: those who understand math and those who don't (four out of three people surveyed agree with this).
SotD: Serge Lutens Daim Blond (thanks to Tang!!)
I have only tried this a couple times before, and today it still seems the same to me--soft leather, peach or apricot, salty cashew nuts, nondescript musk. I have liked it every time I wore it, but still have not considered buying it. It seems like DB is very linear. I didn't have the longevity problem that some have stated in the reviews. I am just not sure I want to smell like bridge mix or popcorn all day. Hmm. Good thing I have more in my sample to try again
Donna Karan Black Cashmere (thank you to an-oud-girl!!)--very light spice and incense with a touch of fruit (peach, nectarine, apricot...). It is very, very light, so I think I may need to transfer the juice to an atomizer and try again. So far, I really like that the incense and spice don't knock me out--those are the kinds of things that make some fragrances very unpleasant for me.
YSL Nu (also from an-oud-girl!!)--this one is really strange, and I am not sure how to classify it. If it is possible, it seems like an aquatic floral oriental. Sounds all mixed up, but it seems to work, and has some spicy carnation to give it backbone without getting too heavy. I think I will need to try this one sprayed also.
Farmacia SS. Annunziata dal 1561 Ybris--wet juicy fruit, smells like a fruit salad of honeydew melon, grapes, apples and some light citrus. It is ok, but smelled much more interesting on paper than it does on my skin right now.
Montale Red Vetyver--so far, this is in Holy Grail vetiver territory for me. The vetiver is pretty much right up front, and has that peanutty, earthy, grassy quality without the overpowering smoke and celery that some vetivers get. At least that is RV so far--I suppose it could change in the drydown. But right now...yummmmmm! The vetiver is contrasted a bit with some light tartness and what seems to be a sweet floral, maybe rose. Lovin' it!

"The plant that you have in your home - have you ever truly looked at it? Have you allowed that familiar yet mysterious being we call a plant to teach you its secrets? Have you noticed how deeply peaceful it is? How it is surrounded by a field of stillness? The moment you become aware of a plant's emanation of stillness and peace, that plant becomes your teacher."
-- Eckhart Tolle
