    L'artisan's Passage d'Enfer

    I am liking this more and more every time I sample it. Wish it lasted a bit longer, but longevity on me is average. I usually have fantastic luck with L'artisans stuff lasting a long time on me.

    My SOTD today was my first test of Bond No 9 Andy Warhol Lexington Avenue.



    It kicked off with a nice, very Lutens-esque Feminite du Bois-style violet/cherry/prune top with just enough aldehydes to make it perfumey, as opposed to fruity floral. And then it stayed there. Any woody base is pretty much squashed by the top notes, which have kept going for hours.

    No points for originality, but this could be nice for people who enjoy the fruity Lutens top-notes but not the sticky-sweet gourmand basenotes.

    That being said, yesterday's Armani Pierre du Lune was a much more nuanced and interesting Lutens copy than this.

    Today's SOTE has been my first test of Chance by Chanel.



    First impression: Wow... They market this to women?? The first blast was huge spice note - dried basil and oregano over a tiny, very overwhelmed bit of citrus.

    Half an hour later, everything settled into something very similar to Hanae Mori's H.M. for Men: herbal lemon over chocolatey vanilla.

    Nice enough, but I already have a bottle of H.M., which hasn't turned out to be one of my favorites anyway... I wish it had kept going down the herbal path.
