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
Sample from a Givenchy Pi Neo satchet... smells a bit odd, but I'm at home for the day.

Woody, aromatic, spicy, herbal, fairly sweet. I find this a very appealing scent. Like most Hermès creations, this smells elegant and toney. I can wear this to work, but not too often; it seems to attract too much attention and distract coworkers and the public. It's perfect for an evening engagement of a more personal character, dinner or a date; perhaps it would be most appropriate at an elegant soirée. The juniper berries and cedar really take the lead with this. Lavender, spices and vanilla provide the underpinning and do the heavy lifting. I'd love to be dressed up sitting at a polished wood-and-chrome bar sipping a Negroni wearing just enough Rocabar to turn a head or two. Key words: Smooth. Elegant. Relaxed. Confident.

Haha, April Fools!
Got an early workout in and needed something cool and refreshing so I went with my newest scent,
No, it doesn't have the depth of many fragrances, it doesn't evolve in any miraculous manner. But it is refreshing, simple, and just plain smells good, and sometimes that's all I need (and want!).

Being April fools today I though I would inflict everyone with the remainder of my 2ml sample of ETdO - Secretions Magnifiques ! ... This should be cool, as I have never actually worn this scent out of the house. It will be very interesting to see how people react to this scent.
I will basically be walking around smelling like someone has just "cum" all over me ! (LOL)
