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

For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm. - Vladimir Nabokov

Apparition by Ungaro
A most lovely and under looked gem from Ungaro. I think it's perfectly suitable for a man. And it just makes me smile to know that Ungaro is still capable of producing some above average scents like Apparition. Please, please do something about the hideous bottle.
Silver Mountain Water
I love cologne.
I went to Little Rock with only this. Did smell a man at the party waering Dior Homme, and another man wearing Silver Mountain Water. Did'nt approach either one, just basked in the glory of being able to call their aromas

Cuiron Pour Homme - Helmut Lang
Top: mandarine, bergamote
Mid: prune, accord boisé
Base: leather, musks
Trying TdH yet again.
I'm not getting the aspirin vibe this time, more the dirt vibe. I was careful to spray only one spritz mid abdomen. Even so, I can feel a headache approaching. This is the only scent I've rated 2 stars that I've given so many chances to. I think this is the last time I'll be wearing this scent.

There are three kinds of people in this world: those who understand math and those who don't (four out of three people surveyed agree with this).

I'm wearing Crown Stephanotis on this dreary and wet spring day. I imagine Isidora Duncan leaping and twirling between the raindrops in her signature scent.
Don a wig of larks and fly!
Today is a sampling day! Right now I'm in Dyptique's Ofresia. Talk about photorealistic, I truly do smell the flowers, as well as the stems. It's pretty linear, but it's good stuff.

Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

Thanks Mike! - Loves this, but dang it's gone after 30 minutes.
L'eau d'Ambre Extreme Eau de Parfum by L'Artisan Parfumeur
Maybe more of a winter scent, but it's also quite calming and relaxing... and that's what I want right now before the work week begins.
Feeling especially lemming-like today, so I'm wearing
