Krizia Moods Uomo
Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter. (Keats)
Today I am sampling:
Czech & Speake Neroli
I think that I much prefer Citrus Paradi to this rather bitter orange fragrance. As I understand it, Napoleon was a major fan of Neroli. Well I guess it wears a just tad too bitter for my taste. Napoleon may have liked it, but I do not care for it.
Also, I do not walk around with my hand inside my coat like he did! Just kidding.
Everyone continue to have a Great Tuesday!
I'm having a day full of meetings. I wore Issey Miyake Pour Homme, but it never had a chance...
THIS FREAKING GILLETTE ALL-DAY FRESH CLINICAL STRENGTH DEODORANT DESTROYS ALL ODORS IN IT'S PATH!
Man, is it strong. It's a little like Creed GIT, but for a deodorant...wow. Smells good if all you want is for people to know you're clean. Horrible choice if you actually want to smell your own cologne.
You sure won't stink! But don't bother to wear cologne.
Current faves: Aventus, Green Irish Tweed, MFK Masculin Pluriel, Dior Homme Eau, TDH Parfum
and ps re the post above, use the non scented version of Gillette clinical strength (its called Ultra comfort).
Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe
Dans Tes Bras by Frederic Malle
Every time I wear this one, I'm a little disoriented wearing it...it's as if my whole body has been replaced with someone else's skin and body and my 'natural' smell has been replaced. Catching whiffs of it, it smells like nothing in nature nor anything in perfumery. It smells instead, like another human body, sweating. It's wonderfully spooky.

Bel Ami Hermes
Montale Aoud Damascus
Cannabis Santal by Fresh.
This morning started off with Tabarome Millesime by Creed. While it has the same essence as many other Creed Millisimes, I think I like it the most. It lasted a good time as well.
This evening though, I switched to some CdG Man 2 for the cold apartment I found myself in when I arrived home late tonight from work. It warmed me up quite nicely! Just a wonderful winter scent. I had been tempted to spend a lot of money on Labo Vetiver 46, but glad I decided to stay with CdG 2 Man. I like it better, and with appropriate amount of sprays (10 for me!), it is just fine!
