    I had planned to purchase these a few days ago and start 2010 with a buying break, but it didn't work out and I ended up getting them today (so I won't count them towards my self imposed 10 bottle limit in 2010). Yeah I'm cheating a little bit, so what!

    Well I ordered it a while ago from abroad, but yesterday I finally received my bottle of Bois d'Argent. Best part? I ordered a 125ml but they made a mistake and sent me a 250ml! I feel like an accidental hoarder!

    The end result of a couple of weeks sampling every Lutens I could get my hands on - Chergui ended up being my favorite.

    I also picked up a ton of fancy candles at the various after-Christmas sales and a Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir shower gel.

    My first purchase of the year was for Odin No.2 Owari.
    Odin very kindly sent me a sample of each of their fragrances and although I liked them all, No.2 just did it for me. It has also received many compliments whilst I've been out wearing this, so I had to splash out on a 100ml bottle and have it delivered to the UK.
    I've also sent for Custo Man last night. I've no idea what it smells like, but the fragrance notes are what I tend to like, so touch wood this will be a good one.
    There are also a few fragrances I like from the Italian companies I Profumi di Firenze and Marco da Venezia, but they will have to wait a while (or at least until next pay day hehe)

    At Neiman's in San Francisco:

    Tom Ford Private Blends
    Bois Marocain
    (2009)
    Green Woods
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Bergamot, Black Pepper
    Middles Notes: Cedar, Cypress (Thuja spp.)
    Base Notes: Incense, Vetiver, Patchouli
    -------------------
    Don't know where the green is coming from, maybe the cypress or the conjunction of cypress, black pepper, and frankincense? Anyway, this comes across as a very green woods kind of scent. It isn't a brand new concept, just as Grey Vetiver wasn't a new concept, but like GV, it's a very well done retread of an older theme. There are very rarely ground-breaking developments in the world of scents, and when there are, they aren't always recognized for what they are or even very well accepted. Well, this may be tried and true, but with some panache, nice balance, and an overall pleasant impression. Nihil novum sub sole? Maybe that's right in an absolute sense, but this is a new kid on the block that's not half bad.
    Yr good bud,
