    Default Today I bought - February 2010

    On ebay, I got hold of this sandalwood fragrance that I hadn't even heard of.
    I just knew that it kinda looked vintage and I thought any vintage sandalwood fragrance cannot be really bad and I just bid for it. Anyone familiar with this?

    Morni Sandalwood



    Also was lucky enough to pounce on a coveted, hard to find bottle of

    Floris Sandalwood

    I miss this stuff so much after giving a 1/4 of a bottle of it to my friend. I bought a 1 oz bottle of Bulgari Aqua. Instead of the sand dollar bottle, it comes in the travel bottle. Not as cool looking, but very different. I didn't want to buy a 3.4 oz bottle, so this should last me a year. Out of the 2 1/2 years I've been into fragrances, this is the very first time I repurchased a bottle of something that is or used to be in my wardrobe. Once I have this in my possession, I'm going to be pretty damn happy.

    We spent an hour chatting with M. Malle this afternoon and I figured it was time I bought this one - I have been circling it for a while, and it was also a good excuse to get a signed copy of his 'picture book' about the new Parfums pour la Maison line (there's a thread over in Home Fragrances for the intensely curious

    F. MALLE's NOIR EPICES. I have searched and tried many perfumes, including Nasomatto's DURO, AFGANO, Biehls, mb03, CDG's AVIGNON & KYOTO, KILIAN's CRUEL INTENTION.......but something about Noir Epices that caught my eye/nose. I wasn't sure about it as it is very niche and spicy. I bought it anyway. I used it and got more compliments from it, especially from the ladies. Go figure!

    I haven't bought a single fragrance in 1–2 years I think. The last ones I got were trades and it was a year or two ago. Finally, after having it has my #1 fragrance for five years now, I bought Serge Lutens Chergui. It was about time.

    I finally got around to buying this one. It's weird, I was on the fence about buying two completely unrelated fragrances - L'Arte di Gucci and Tubereuse Couture - and then up pops a good deal on this and I decided this should be my bottle of the month instead.

    At Bloomigdales:

    Bvlgari
    Bvlgari Black
    (1998)
    Annick Menardo
    Woody Oriental
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Bergamot, Green Tea
    Middle Notes: Jasmine, Cedar Wood, Sandalwood
    Base Notes: Leather, Amber, Musk, Vanilla
    ------------------
    I had never bought this before because the "rubber" note in the top used to bother me. Today I smelled it once more, and this time I got it. If I like Dior Fahrenheit, with its "gasoline" note, or the weird note in the top of Geoffrey Beene Grey Flannel, why should I not like this? And, of course my recent blog musings about the working of Oriental scents made it a natural. Once the rubber "hits the road" (pun intended), this settles down into a beautiful leather oriental accord with just a hint of jasmine tea. Very Bvlgari. (And what's with that Roman stone inscription-style "V" in their trademark name anyway?)

    Spicy-Woody Oriental
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Spices
    Middle Notes: Patchouli
    Base Notes: Jasmine, Vetiver, Leather. Amber
    ------------------

    Quite strong off the top, this settles down to a very nice drydown of woody and oriental notes with jasmine. The spices get it started, but then sensibly get out of the way to let the fragrance finish its journey tastefully. Monster sillage at first moderates after the first half to three-quarters of an hour.
