Dior Homme edt, DH deo stick, DH moisturizing lotion

Same house as tadneit:
Guerlain Bois d'Armenie
Definitely unique among Guerlains I've experienced. BdA starts off with a strong incense and spice accord, balanced with vanilla then dries into an incredibly smooth, lightly sweetened balsalm/woody base. I'm surprised this gets absolutely no attention, but I'm just as happy feeling like I've 'found' a special unique fragrance. Still, I recommend people try this - and it's the type of Guerlain that would appeal to non-Guerlain fans as well as Guerlain buffs.
Sycomore by Chanel
SotE : Profumum Thundra
PVC and Leather. A Chain and a feather
L'Artisan Parfumeur • TIMBUKTU
Serge Lutens - Chergui
I'm in Fresh Index Tobacco Caramel, bought blind on EvilBay. The caramel does have a bit of a synthetic twang to it, but overall I feel like I've fallen into the inner pocket of some university professor's tweed jacket, with the pipe tobacco pouch and a butterscotch candy. I think it's quite nice!
Tobacco Caramel notes:
Top notes: Tobacco flowers, mandarine, and French tarragon
Middle notes: Honey, Damascus rose, and Chinese osmanthus
Base notes: Caramel, rich amber, and musc.
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Sander for Men. Still love this one even though I have to spray it like 10 times to get anything from it now...
Sables by Annick Goutal (1985)
Ungaro Pour L'Homme I
LesNez LMPTL Aftershave from a sample as SotD
Love is like a flame..it burns you when it's hot
Rochas Man, this fine winter day.
De gustibus non est disputandum
Miller Harris Citron Citron.
Eddie Bauer "Adventurer II"
R de Capucci.
Don't Smell the Flowers,
They're an Evil Drug to Make You Lose Your Mind --- Dio
Paco Rabanne PH (from a sample). Went on almost as a green gourmand, now it's died down on the sweetness a bit.but still smells very nice. Will have to get this one now.
XS PH (from a sample). My skin has a tendency to pick out very few notes and just those notes. So while Iskarfand smells just like pepper, and Idole smells like rum-soaked cumin (aka HORRIBLE), XS smells just like mint.
My limited 'drobe: Boss In Motion, Armani Code, Concentre d'Orange Verte, Paul Smith Story.
Kind of a late post; had to leave early this morning to survey an emergency power system, and not feeling very well. SOTD: Guerlain Vetiver - it is nice, but not bottle worthy for me. I by far prefer bolder vetivers like Encre Noire or CDG 2Man.

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.
"Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, every fear is gone."
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
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!
