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

This is a beautiful green chypre that is perfect for any weather. At first, it is a little sweet and rather floral; but after it settles, it comes into perfect balance. There is some galbanum in this for sure, and the green note persists all the way into the drydown. At the end it is fresh and green, with just a hint of the former florals. This really lasts, by the way; I can still smell it faintly almost twenty-four hours after application. Captivating, uplifting.
Yr good bud,

I find this rather boring. Was expecting more. Anyway, this is my first time spritzing Code. Will give it more time to prove itself.
Compare & Contrast day for me.

Started Sunday early Houston time, I have a lot to do today. Took a nice hot shower, used my favorite shampoo and conditioner, and then had a great very close shave. I WAS feeling excellent and ready for a long day. My SOTD?
As I suspected and now have confirmed, I am no lover of strong patchouli scents. Lui wears quite strong with excellent sillage. However, for my taste, this juice just stinks like a dirty hippy who has not bathed in several weeks.
I am not enjoying this juice one bit, although, I do respect that individual tastes differ and there are many lovers of this fragrance. If you love Lui, please go for it and enjoy! However, it is not for me.
Everyone have or continue to have a Great Sunday!

Not sure of the order yet but going to be (re)testing the following today:
MPG - Fraiche Badiane
AOS - Lemon
Ineke - Derring-Do
These all have rather excellent longevity, especially for citrus oriented scents. In other words, I'll be taking a couple of showers!
