    Dior Cologne Blanche

    Basically a collection of some of my most favorite notes.. and yet I don't love it. I can't even rate it above a 3/5. Not enough rosemary, too much vanilla and heliotrope, too sweet an almond. I wanted so badly to love this. A letdown.

    Wearing one of my favorite holiday scents but the name certainly does not conjure the holidays.

    Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale

    Ok I'll admit it the name kept me from trying this for a long time. Go ahead insert your favorite smelly fish fragrance joke here, it will be better than anything I can come up with. Once I finally tried Enzo Gallardi's 2005 release for Bois 1920 I was exasperated to think the silly name kept me, an avowed spice lover, away from the amazing spice fest that Sushi Imperiale is. Sushi Imperiale is as good as it gets if you love spice in your scent and it is easily one of my favorite ones to wear around the holidays because the spices that are most prominent are the classic holiday spices.

    The top of Sushi Imperiale begins with bergamot, orange, and lemon. This is a standard citrus beginning but Sig. Gallardi pulls off something rarely seen with these notes he keeps them soft. Usually citrus comes at you with power and tart energy. Here the citrus wafts in and just settles around me like a cashmere scarf. A wonderful alternative presentation of very familiar notes. By keeping the beginning controlled it allows the spices an unexpected oompn as they burst upon the scene. The heart is full of pepper, ginger, anise, nutmeg and cinnamon. This is the smell of the winter kitchen while baking and again it is extremely well-balanced. One moment the anise is prevalent then the nutmeg comes forward then the cinamon and back. This eventually gives way to sandalwood and tonka in the base. The vanilla feel of the tonka extends my winter baking feel but really it turns woody and there is a little vetiver in the base to reinforce that.

    Sushi Imperiale has excellent longevity and average sillage, on me.

    I've yet to see an adequate explanation for the name and what Sig. Gallardi was thinking when he named this. The only comparison I can make to sushi is this is comparable to chu-toro, which is the finest cut of tuna available at the sushi bar. Sushi Imperiale is one of the finest spice fragrances available at the scent bar.

    Have a Titanic Thursday everyone.

    My office Christmas Party is today, as well. I'm sporting Canali for Men. Clean and woody.

    My leadership team Christmas Party was last night, at which I wore Dior Homme EDT, which is now solidly in my Top 3 overall scents, and is probably my family's favorite on me.

    Current Top: Dior Homme, Miller Harris Terre de Bois, Creed GIT, Terre D'Hermes EDT, Encre Noir

    Chanel - Cuir de Russie

    From 'Now Smell This"-
    Chanel’s website describes Cuir de Russie as a “rich, woody oriental” and lists its topnotes as:
    Tunisian orange blossom, Calabrian bergamot, and Sicilian mandarin; its heart as jasmine,
    Oriental rose, and ylang ylang; and its base as Albanian birchwood. What I smell is a buttery smooth
    mélange of aldehydes, iris, ylang ylang, glove leather, and a touch of sandalwood.
