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

OYEDO by Diptyque
Sweet yuzu with thyme smells deliciously reminding me a strawberry
but I should mention some chemical character of that fresh smell
Vetiver The Great!!!
L'Air du Desert Moroccain
Concentre d'Orange Verte - Hermes
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
CDG Cologne: ANBAR
Just picked this up - wow. I've been looking for a good-quality EDC. This one fits the bill and is insanely cheap, too!
unico grande amore.
PARFUM D' HABIT
Jean-François Laporte, MAITRE PARFUMEUR ET GANTIER
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..."
Clarice Lispector ( 1920-1977) - Perfumes da Terra / Earth Perfumes
I love cologne.
Guerlain Anisia Bella
Euphoria Men by Calvin Klein
I didn't like the last time and I still don't like it now. A rather reticent sweet scent that fails to entice and seduce. For everything good that is missing in this scent, just jump straight to Euphoria Intense and save yourself the disappointment.
Comme des Garcons - Hinoki
Day: L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme
Evening: (plan to wear) BalMan by Pierre Balmain
Creed Original Vetiver from sample.
Looking to swap/buy/receive for free () the following samples/decants:
Indult Tihota & Rêve en Cuir
Chant d'Aromes extrait
Vetiver pour Elle (5ml decant)
Versace The Dreamer 50ml (1.7oz) BNIB
"The Sunshine bores the daylights outta me!"
Gucci - Envy for Men
L'Artisan Fleur De Liane
While it does evoke a wet jungle scene in its early stages, it quickly loses steam and becomes rather bland. I do like it, but definitely don't feel it FBW at the moment. I think FM's Lys Mediterranee evokes a somewhat similar vibe (less green, though) and enjoy that one more.
Iris Pallida 50ml
Ungaro I 75ml
and more! - http://www.basenotes.net/threads/301...n-Man-and-more

Creed - Bois du Portugal

It has been beautiful the last few days which makes up for the very gray week we had last week.
Wearing something spicy today:
Lorenzo Villoresi Piper Nigrum
There are scents that come along and make a big splash. Usually it is because they have something new to offer. In 1999 Lorenzo Villoresi released Piper Nigrum and this scent still has something new to offer ten years on. Piper Nigrum is the botanical name for black pepper and this is what makes Piper Nigrum different. There are many scents out there that use pepper to effect to add a bit of slap and tickle to the olfactory development. Piper Nigrum puts the pepper front and center and leves it in place for the whole development. M. Villoresi chose some other herbs to join the pepper at the top namely anise, and mint. The pepper is what you smell when you are walking through the spice section and you get to the shelf holding the ground pepper. There is an arid airy quality to the piquancy of the pepper. Add to this the tang of anise and the zip of mint and the beginning of this comes off as a trip to the spice market. The mint pulls away first followed by the anise to be replaced by woods namely the cleanliness of cedar and the creaminess of sandalwood. This along with the pepper makes for a different take on the pepper as it brings out more of its resinous, almost incense-like, qualities and it tones down the spiciness of it all. This development of the pepper continues into a classic contrast of sweet and spicy as a sweet amber pairs with the central note in the base. This juxtaposition really brings out the resinous quality of the pepper to its fullest extent. I can see why Piper Nigrum was so popular when it first hit the scene. What I don't understand is why it still isn't talked about as it has a singular quality I haven't found in any other scent I've worn to date.
Have a Wondrous Wednesday everyone.

CDG 2 Man. This lingers a while longer than I expect, easily 6 to 8 hours. More of a skin scent than projection, but every now and then, I can move my head and catch a whiff.

Trying C&S Dark Rose from a sample (thanks for the wonderful tip, Galamb_Borong!!!)
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
