Christian Dior Diorella - vintage parfum with EdT layered on top. Unfortunately the spray mechanism of the vintage parfum leaks, thus I need to be really careful when applying and make sure to apply the precious parfum that escapes. Regardless, the depth of the parfum is sublime, and the 'dirty/lush' aspect of Diorella's florals is greatly enhanced. Love it!

The longevity and quality of this easily matches and exceeds two of it's most often compared peers CDG Man 2 and Gucci Homme.
A really wonderful fragrance.

Been to the gym and now it is time to get into some Cannabis Rose by Fresh for the evening. 1st wearing from a new bottle I bought today. This one clicks in a big way with me. I am so happy to have a Rose fragrance in my wardrobe once again.

SOTD: My first test of Piment Brûlant by L'Artisan Parfumeur.
This one kicks off with a pretty striking mix of hot pepper, cilantro, and green grass. Combined, these make a very good green bell pepper smell.
After some time, some smoke came and went, followed by some light cinnamon, which could easily have been the spicy top of some incoming sandalwood.
Quite a few hours later, a light chocolate (made creamy and spiced by the sandalwood) comes in, rounding out the fresh greens lingering at the top.
I guess that, by definition, this is a gourmand fragrance, but it really comes off as much more of a green. On my skin, the chocolate never took over strongly enough to turn this heavy on me.
Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??
Tried my sample of Aramis Havana to see what all the fuss is about.
Now i have to decide if it is worth it to track this down, or try an inexpensive alternative - Montana.
