Thread: SOTD 26th Dec
Merry X'mas to all from Singapore!
These two are not technically my sotd. More sata- scent at the airport. I tested two scents at bangkok airport- Kenzo Power and Narciso Rodriguez for Him- both wonderful 'powdery' frags but it was love at first sniff for Kenzo Power. I love, love this so much
Snarky is as snarky does.
Deleted. I didn't go out anywhere today so I didn't wear anything.

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
OK, now I`m moving towards New Year moods - Heritage by Guerlain
I got this EDT in 90`s as New Year present from former GF, and still wear it for memory and just for the Santa Claus feeling.

This ended up not working out so well - was way too formal. Therfore, I switched in the afternoon. See later post. :-)

Notes: Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Ambergris
Quite old-school, not very strong, with a somewhat limited sillage. This is a very straightforward sandalwood, with a little bergamot in the top and some other woody and coumarin notes in the base, plus the ever-present Creed signature ambergris. Not great on longevity, this scent is nevertheless redolent of aristocracy and conservative notions of style. If you like solid and reliable scents that send a message of (perhaps slightly smug) self-possession and self-regard, this is for you. The other possibility is that you like something very obviously old-fashioned; simple, yet brilliant in its simplicity; and satisfyingly (if fleetingly) beautiful; then this is for you, too. Personally, I think I'll take it on the latter terms.
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"

Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.

Colonia Assoluta - Aqua di Parma

SOTD: Montale - Aoud Damascus, from a sampler.
The first Montale sample I tried was Black Aoud, which convinced me for a long time that aoud fragrances are not for me (way too strong and way too much rose). But to my surprise I find Aoud Damascus quite wearable.
SOTE: another Montale sampler, Patchouli Leaves. Interesting and nice, but not something I would wear in public.
