    Guerlain Parure EdT (with a dab of extrait underneath)

    This discontinued jewel is rarely mentioned, which is probably why it was discontinued a couple years ago for 'low demand'. Parure deserves to mentioned in discussions of the great classical chypres. Parure is set apart with notes of lilac and rose, but also because the oakmoss drydown comes on early and lasts a long time. I have a fairly old bottle, so I don't know if latter bottles would have been effected by the EU oakmoss restrictions, but for oakmoss fans this is a must-try.

    Despite vigorous scrubbing in the shower, I think I'm still getting some 'bleed-through' of Chia, yesterday's SOTD. Testament to how damn high quality the Farmacia SS Anunziata line is, but irritating me today since I can't be sure what I'm smelling.

    Notes: Attar of Roses, Honey Notes, Spices
    Not at work today, so I thought I would get away with a little mischief in the form of sporting this rosy, honeyed fragrance. It shouldn't raise any eyebrows if worn on a man, but of course, people being what they are, it would... One of the originals from the L'Art et la Matière series, this is a beautiful composition of rose attar (the purest form of rose oil extraction), honey notes (for a slight animalic quality), and a blend of subtle spicy notes; the whole gives this an incredible cachet. It has a nice, but not overwhelming sillage and very good longevity on my skin.

    Today I am sampling a fragrance from "the" house

    Creed Original Santal

    In full disclosure, I absolutely LOVE my GIT and Tabarome Millesime.

    However, I do understand where some of the Creed bashers are coming from. This fragrance is wearing with very weak projection and very poor longevity. In addition, what is there, is really not that interesting or provocative. I believe I will pass on this one.

    One must wonder how houses like Boucheron and Hermes, for instance, do not seem to have an issue in adding sufficient parfum oil to their fragrances where Creed for some reason does!

    Ah, the beauty of sampling before purchase.

    Everyone have or continue to have a Great Monday!

    This evening I sampled L'artisan Ambre Extreme - actually not bad, and better than I thought I would like it based on the reviews and comments I read. Well, it's still resting on my arm... so we shall see how it develops!

    Are you sure you're testing OS? Original Santal, at least IMHO, is by FAR the longest lasting and highest projecting Creed. It is often compared to the nuclear Joop Homme, and while its not quite that intense it is just a minor notch below it.

    I've liked this one from the very beginning, but I didn't spring for it until I got a nice gift card. Well, I bought the whole shooting match - EDT, AS, deo, and shower gel. This stuff just smells great to me. Not sure what it is that I like - mostly it's in the heart - I guess it's the woody blend that they advertise as the "Santal Fatale Accord" () - and a bit of the topnotes, but the drydown is perfectly fine. Nice fragrance, a bit like Dolce & Gabbana the one For Men.
