This is becoming one of my favorites.... it puts me in a tranquil mood on
ordinary days, like today, when life..... just goes on.
I put on angel men last night and it was still going and I didn't have time to shower so I just wore the dry down to class. After my shower this afternoon, I will be wearing Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme

I'm really appreciating this just now. If it was just a touch more animalic and a lot less gourmand, it would be a must-have.

Today I'm enjoying my new bottle of:
Bois 1920 - Vetiver Ambrato
Guerlain Cologne du 68
In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
Tonight it's Creed Acier Aluminum. A beautifully radiant sweet amber/leather that has both depth and substance. One of Creed's very best efforts.

Today, it smells WAY animalic. Woosh! I'm assuming this must appeal to fans of Musc Ravageur, no?
