Azzaro, Pure Cedrat
Bitter citron peel, a bit of pencil shavings cedar, and salty waxy musk.
Not a show-stopper, but that's fine for offices and classrooms.
Floris Eau de Santal today.
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!
L'Heure Bleue (new EdP) by Guerlain
Inspired by Strollyourlobster's thread about LhB, I decided to give a full wearing (for the 2nd time) to the 'new' EdP of this juice (compared to the vintage Parfum de Toilette I also own). It isn't bad, in fact it's quite acceptable for this Guerlain fan, and if it was the only formulation of LhB I could obtain, I'd own it - but it lacks a discernible wide-angle top note of iris that the vintage has. It smells less like a pastry and more like a fragrance. I actually prefer the pastry effect. Nonetheless, it's still as melancholy as all get up.

Cedre notes: Cedarwood, tuberose, musk, amber and cinnamon.
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

YSL - Rive Gauche pour Homme.
SotD: Dior Homme
SotE: Fragonard F!
F! boasts "Juniperberry, black pepper, verbena and bergamot sparkle on a heart of nutmeg, clove, and guaiacum wood all on a background of amber, cedar wood, leather and patchouli". The opening black reveals there's also some menthol at work, to the point that I was reminded of Icy-Hot or those mentholated Hall's cough drops. Well, the way I see it, I already have M7 to take care of my cough medicine desires. Once it settled down it was a nice herbal scent, but just this side of generic. This is my first experience with Fragonard and it's a bit of a misstep. I'm hoping I'll find something in the future to balance out this. Average goin' on middling.
