Zino Davidoff tonight.
"Are you a god?"
"Are you a wizard?"
"Are you a man?"
"Then what are you?"
"I am awake.."
Today's sample was my first try of Tom Ford Champaca Absolute.
Way to feminine for me, without the jasmine-esque indoles of Nuit de Cellophane or the pepper of Ormand Jayne's Champaca. On both Julia my co-worker and JaimeB, who tested this on the SF meet-up, the tea shined through. On me, it's billowing clouds of flowers.
Speaking of JaimeB, happy birthday! After meeting him, one main thing struck me: The further I get into perfumes, the more picky and bitchy I get (yuck, ozone! orange and vanilla together? blech!). When I sniff something new, it feels like I'm going into it searching for the negative, waiting for it to offend me. JaimeB, on the other hand, aproached new scents expecting to be wowed, focusing on the positive, which seems like a more rewarding and ultimately more fun way to aproach this hobby of ours. So hats off to a master and an unintentional mentor! When I've smelled as many fragrances as you, I hope I'm still excited and interested and haven't managed to burn myself out....

Individuel by Mont Blanc
In honor of JaimeB I am wearing Guerlain's 180 Ans from a sample (the last sprays)
It is delicious!!!!
I wish Guerlain would make this available for purchase.
Tom Ford Extreme
Scent 21 - by costume national
Want to buy/trade: looking for some escentric molecules kinski, I have a bunch of decants/samples including escentric 02 and escentric 01
Tea For Two.
YSL Nuit Homme
Guerlain's Cuir Beluga from a sample
This strikes me as a rather uninteresting vanilla with not much sillage.
Thierry Mugler Pure Coffee!
A very nice coffee scent, but it will have to beat out Ava Luxe Cafe Noir as Pure Coffee goes on eBay for around $110 USD.
Everyone have a Fantastic Weekend!
Le Labo Rose 31 for me tonight- thanks to Angiesdoeboy aka Mr. A !
I've heard so many good things about this and - yes! they are all true .
