    Parfum Generale - Iris Taizo. Yum, just my type of Iris scent - a touch sweet, and tempered by woods and cardamom. Much prefer this style to the cold, powdery style (eg Iris Nobile).

    Today I sampled what many consider to be a classic spring/summer staple and also another fine example of Mr. Polge's work:

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport

    I must say I did enjoy the bright citrus opening. However, I did find the longevity and projection to be a bit disappointing. I did apply quite liberally.

    However, I will give this fragrance a few more wearings before I write it off as not a very good fit for my skin chemistry.

    Everyone have a Great Saturday!

    SOTD: Vera Wang For Men by Vera Wang.



    This is my "inoffensive" scent, because I was going to the hospital this morning.

    It opens with that same artificial "grapey" bergamot that so many designer scents open with. It also hits with some black pepper and some nice woods.

    The woods and pepper burn off almost immediately, exposing a base of light leather. This isn't an animalic, challenging leather. And this isn't an in-your-face "classy" leather. This is inoffensive plain leather, which actually does smell quite good with the bergamot.

    Later, some black pepper comes back in, along with some spicy nutmeg, while the leather slowly dies out.

    Even with overaplication, there's very little silage (that's why I chose it as my going-to-the-hospital frag). This is a scent for you and anyone that hugs you.

    ps - I'll do my S&S floral for this evening...

    pps - someone said this thread needs more pictures, hence the silly ad. But it is interesting to see what image was given to scents I try, just because they're usually so different from what I get from the frags.

    If they make a scent called that. And not if not. From a sample. But let me recommend in all earnestness Stone's IPA, but with the caveat that it's much better in a glass even if the physics of fizziness seem not to support this view, and if North Korea must shoot something over Japan maybe they could fill it with something that smells good?

    SOTE: In honor of floral Saturday, Quelques Fleurs Royale by Houbigant.



    If the Vera Wang for Men I wore earlier today was my least offensive frag, then this is my most offensive.

    It's not horribly animalic or anything, it's just STRONG. And kind of weird. Even with extremely light application, it's a scent that people can smell coming a mile away. A drop will perfume a whole room and it lasts forever.

    This is one of those fragrances where everything is blended so thoroughly that I really have issues pulling out notes.

    There's definitely bergamot and citrus in the opening, but the whole scent is dominated by an accord similar to Bulgari's Rose: rose + blackberry. It's the rest I just can't figure out. There's something buttery and a base I just can't place (some sort of moss? some sort of musk?)

    There's not much change, but the citruses fade after a while and the base comes out a bit more, but the whole experience comes down to roar of the Bulgarian rose mixed with the berries and the base.

    By tomorrow morning, I know from experience that a beautiful vanilla will have come out. That is actually my favorite stage of this frag.

    Overall, this isn't a scent I can wear often, but it does hold a place in my heart.
