    Im on a complete spending spree atm, placed orders on
    Versaces Dreamer
    Body Kouros by YSL
    and a whole bunch of others.
    Waiting for the mail has rarely been such a thrill as this week and knowing myself I'm afraid I wont be able to hold back on a few others including
    Habit Rouge
    M7
    Jules
    Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir
    Allure Blanche.

    But I hope in near future i will have acquired all designers I consider FBW and can finally get myself to treats such as full bottles of niches like Malles without that stinging voice in the back of my head saying "you could get three other ones that you really dig for that money...".
    A well i guess to me thats half the fun already

    First sniffed this at Barneys during last Saturday's Meet-Up. I knew it was captivating right then and there, but by then (Barneys was our next-to-last official stop on the tour) I had already dropped a bundle. Guess what? Today's payday, so, I went back and bought

    Parfums Delrae
    Mythique
    (2009)
    Yann Vasnier
    Notes: Florentine Iris, Mandarin, Bergamot, Ivy, Peony, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Amber [Notes from parfyym.pri.ee; other sources substitute ambrette for the amber]

    The iris in this is rich and magnificent, fresh with the citrus notes bursting in the top. The heart of ivy, peony, and jasmine is floral with a slightly bitter green twist, which keeps the freshness going; the woody amber base makes the perfect anchor and also boosts the rootiness of the iris, keeping it from coming across as too powdery. The peony-jasmine heart, balanced by the green ivy, stops short of being too feminine, making this a possible wear for a devil-may-care kind of guy. (Me? You?)
    Yr good bud,

    My new one: Parfums de Nicolai Le Temps d'Une Fete and I love this one. Perfect autumn green floral.

    Top notes : galbanum, opoponax, tree moss
    Heart : hyacinth and narcissus
    Bottom notes : bois de santal, patchouli, oak moss

    L' Eau by Diptyque



    On my last day in NYC yesterday, I dropped into the Diptytque boutique and finally decided to get this one. It's been on my to-get list for quite a while and it's cinnamon spice goodness is just irresistible to me. So glad to finally have it in my wardrobe.

    I also picked up one of their candles, which are quite amazing aren't they? I got Baies.

    Goutal Madragore Pourpre.

    Just came in - EDT in both bottle designs as per Duel etc. There's something about Madragore I really like as a summer 'splash EDC refresher' when I don't want citrus straight up and this new one is a variation on the theme. I'm not looking for killer longevity - just a bit more of that note, and initial impression this seems to give it to me. Still a few weeks of 30c heat here to give it a good run.

    A vintage bottle of Pour Monsieur After Shave by Chanel. I stumbled upon an old After Shave in a small pharmacy in Athens, Georgia when I was visiting a friend last month. I almost missed it, since the box and bottle reads, A Gentlemens After Shave - which is what PM was called when it was released in the UK before the name was changed to Pour Monsieur. The juice is extremely dark and I suspect the top notes have turned since there is almost no citrus at all. But the oakmoss base notes are alive and intricately woven. I'm not sure if I can wear this alone, as the basenotes feel kind of hollow when applied...but maybe it will layer it with some of my citrus prominent 'new' chypres that require a more solid base. Nonetheless, I'm happy to play around with this neat little vintage find.



    I also scored a vintage bottle of No. 22 Bath Powder by Chanel - which most likely I will sell.

    Bvlgari Black - 50mL

    I had decants of these previously, and my wife really like Bvlgari Black for herself, so that one is mainly for her.

    Now, the decants:

    Diesel Fuel for Life
    Davidoff Adventure Amazonia
    Canali

    I have had the Diesel as a decant before, but I have not tried any of the others yet.

    Lots of good stuff in this thread!

    Today I bought three EDCs by Gandini, Lavender and Gold Amber, Orange Blossom and Leaves, and Pomegranate and Incense. Gandini is an Italian house, and new to our local market. They have a lineup of eight EDCs, but only these three are available here.

    They seem quite good so far, and much longer lasting than your typical cologne strength fragrances.

    I also picked up bottles of Gres Cabaret, Revlon Ajee, and Banana Republic Classic.
