    My order arrived this morning: Lorenzo Villoresi Acqua di Colonia, Incensi & Spezie. They join Uomo & Yerbamate both of which I have been wearing a lot over the last few months. (Uomo also comes in Profumo, BTW.)

    Mintea by Masaki Matsushima



    Got it 50% off at Sephora - this is one of Ray's favorites. Doesn't smell like mint or tea, so the name's slightly misleading. Very refreshing stuff.

    Coming through Oslo's duty free on my way back to the states today, I picked up the "concrete" limited edition of L'eau d'Issey. Yeah, I know, it's the same juice in a different bottle, but i'm a sucker for a funky bottle!

    Shalimar (vintage parfum) by Guerlain



    While I love the Eau de Cologne formulation of Shalimar, I completely abhor the Eau de Toilette that I have smelled. A generous Basenoter let me smell the parfum once, but I thought it was okay but I was expecting something better. Then I realized that I had tested new parfum, so I decided to get a hold of some vintage parfum, which is why I picked this one up. The bottle is very tiny (about 1.5 ml) but that's enough for me to get a feel whether I'll like this or not.

    For the past few days I have been visiting Washington D.C. and I've gotten to do some great fragrance sniffing. I have been abusing my credit card, but in the best possible ways! Things have turned into an unintentional Ellena-fest.

    Hermes - Hermessence 4-pack: Vetiver Tonka, Osmanthe Yunnan, Vanille Galante, Ambre Narguile.
    The Different Company - Sel de Vetiver
    Hermes - Terre d'Hermes (limited edition flacon)


    Now the credit card is going into a huge block of ice like in the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic.

    Finally just bought Frank No. 2 (got it in the mail yesterday... couldn't wait to bike home and open that baby up... and the best part is that night time in the bay area is like fall, even in summer - perfect timing).

    Just placed my order for one that's been on my list for over 4 years: Himalaya!

    Three at Parfumerie Jacqueline in San Francisco:

    Giorgio Valenti
    Rose Noire for Men
    (2000)
    Notes: Berries, Citrus, Sandalwood

    A pleasant daytime scent, not too light, not too heavy, with a sort of woody-oriental base and a hard-to-name top note that includes some citrus, berries, and perhaps a bit of spice.

    Jean-Louis Scherrer
    Scherrer
    (1983)
    Notes: Mandarin, Jasmine, Iris, Rose, Oakmoss, Tree Moss, Woody Notes

    A classic chypre from the 1980's, with prominent moss notes in the base. The "woody notes" definitely include patchouli, and the mandarin stands in for bergamot. The floral bouquet in the middle is classic and very tastefully done, so the florals don't tip the balance against the base notes. Marketed to women, but the drydown is fine on a man, since all the florals in this are now commonly found in "masculine" scents and fall well short of screeching levels.


    Parfums Régence
    Lavandou

    Can't find a word on this anywhere, but it's the one I mention in my blog post here, on lavender and lavandin. I'm going to have to add a comment correcting myself, since I recalled the name as Lavandin, but it's actually Lavandou. Parfums Régence is nowadays known only for Kölnisch Juchten, but André at Parfumerie Jacqueline has a whole line of them, including Oakmoss, Vert Régence, and others (including KJ), but not the Clary Sage I thought I remembered having a while ago. Perhaps my memory fails me there too, or maybe they were out of stock... or maybe it's discontinued... or maybe it only ever existed in my mind.

    In any case, its a melding of all kinds of lavender, lavandin and related garrigue scents, with a light woody base. Very nice for spring weather.

    I blind-bought L'Heure Bleue EDT and just got a chance to try it today...

    ... I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it, except that it is surely the most melancholy fragrance I've tried to date.
