Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.

YSL L'Homme - my favourite, along with the grooming moisturizer. I think I like it enough to purchase the other two (the fatigue reducer and the makeup stick.)
However, I don't know how long 50ml of moisturizer is going to last, hahaha. I'll have to apply sparingly. (It smells really nice though.)

Aigner Black for Men by Etienne Aigner
It's a pity that any perfume offering by Etienne Aigner is often overlooked and none deserves more respect than Aigner Black. Oozing class and sophistication, Black is superbly assured and classy. Pretty linear, it's just lack any developement of surprise and excitement to elevate it to great. But still afterall a very fine perfume and deserves to be better known.

Base notes: Cypress, Amber, Moss
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
I think I missed the memo warning me that Boston was going to be the east coast version of Seattle. Feels like I haven't seen the sun in ages.
For this yucky day I thought I'd strap my pith helmet back on:
Kenzo Jungle Le Tigre
Dominique Ropion created a pair of scents under the Jungle brand for Kenzo. The first in 1996 L'Elephant is one of my favorites. Its zoological companion, Le Tigre, was released a year later in 1997. The two scents are very different but yet there are some similarities. Both scents show a willingness on the part of the designer to try something different. The top of Le Tigre starts conventional with a shot of bergamot but it is joined with a tart kumquat note which adds an edge to the beginning. Also along at the beginning is the note Davana which is an African savanna grass. There is a grassiness below the citrus top and that must be the Davana. It is a quite beautiful beginning. As it continues to develop it becomes more floral as osmanthus becomes the dominant note. Through this stage the scent treads fairly traditional fruity-floral territory but the presence of the Davana gives it a different feel. The joy of Le Tigre comes in the drydown as the sweetness starts to recede and first cinnamon makes its appearance in spicy counterpoint to the sweet that has come before. To pair with the cinnamon is an amazing woody base which has hints of coconut to it. This woodiness comes from Massoia and it is just an incredible finish to this scent. Le Tigre is a more starightforward scent than L'Elephant but the use of the African notes of Davana and Massoia give it a unique character and one keeping in the spirit of being in the scented jungle.
Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone.

The Different Company
Because I enjoyed it in sampling so much last night, I shall give it my first full wearing. This stuff is beautiful, but damn is this ethereal. I get tiny little wisps of scent passing by my nose every once in a while, but other than that it's barely there.

TERRE de SARMENT, Frapin & Cie
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
