    Hugh Parsons
    Blue
    (aka Traditional)
    (1998)

    Top Notes: Lemon, Mandarin, Blackberry
    Middle Notes: Pepper, Angelica, Cardamom, Juniper
    Base Notes: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Ambergris

    A refreshing, masculine, tonic fragrance. It is characterized by spicy and green/herbal notes, with citrus and fruit in the top note and a woody-ambery base. I first encountered this scent a few years ago and took it on a trip to Hawaii with me. At that time, I was very struck by the juniper, angelica and spice notes, which along with the citrus, put me very much in mind of gin and tonic. Ever since that time, I have always associated this scent with the Islands and with the cocktail hour. I think these are pretty good associations for a fragrance, so I can't help but think highly of it.

    Escada - Magnetism

    Lots of pink pepper and tolu balsam in this, along with some kind of thin synthetic jasmine like note and/or myrrh. (I don't mean thin as a bad thing here - the other notes add the fullness while the jasmine isolate (or similar synthetic) offers the kind of grape like note, I believe.)

    I'm liking it quite a bit!

    Quite a transformation from top to heart notes in this frag. The leathery heart is impressive.

    F by Ferragamo pH Black

    This is one underrated, relatively uncelebrated but BEAUTIFUL frag. Black-peppered, tonka-sweetened leather. Calls to mind Jil Sander's Man Absolute (its tonka for JL's vanilla).

    I haven't done this on this thread before, but i strongly recommend sampling this unsung beauty.

    SotD: Lalique pour Homme Equus EDP by Lalique

    I try another full wearing today with 5 spritzes, including two to the undershirt. My nose still can't detect much even from the beginning. Most likely have to let go this one.

    SotE: Black Diamond EDP by Canali

    This is another EDP that kind of disappoints me, but at least I don't have to sink to nose so deep to smell it.

    One on each arm, by the end of the day I hope we have a winner.
