I've got a few drops left...and I'm still in love...and it's (as it turns out) appropriate. So another day in

I'm not wearing the green but I'm wearing my favorite incense fragrance.
Amouage Jubilation XXV
It is an interesting thing to see when a perfumer chooses a particular note and composes many different explorations of that note. Olivia Giacobetti has done that with fig and Bertrand Duchaufour has done it with incense. M. Duchaufour has been responsible for what I consider to be the best incense fragrances out there; Comme des Garcons Avignon and Kyoto, L’Artisan Timbuktu, and Dzongkha. These are all distinctly different incense fragrances which stand on their own but it was the fifth incense fragrance M. Duchaufour created which took all of these first four and created my favorite incense fragrance, 2007’s Amouage Jubilation XXV.
The top of Jubilation XXV is a sweet and sour contrast of tart orange and lush berry with a pinch of coriander to spice things up. The spice deepens in the heart as bay and cinnamon usher in the frankincense accord. This incense accord, when I can pick it out by itself, is a dry austere incense. The particularly remarkable thing is by surrounding it with a woody accord and the spices it keeps the incense from being too dry and imparts a humidity to it that allows it to expand a bit. The base is one of the best intersections of amber and incense I own. The resinous qualities of the incense with the warmer soft amber make Jubilation XXV the ultimate comfort scent for me.
Jubilation XXV has excellent longevity and modest sillage.
Amouage Jubilation XXV was the masculine fragrance released in honor of the 25th anniversary of the founding of Amouage. This is a fragrance that will stand with me for the next 25 years, easily.
Have a Wild Wednesday everyone.

Nothing. Absolutely nothing - I got up this morning and literally spent nearly ten minutes trying to decide between my two new Rance frags, Trumper Ajaccio Violets, vintage Brut EDT and my current formula Eau Sauvage. But none of them felt right, so in the end I went au naturel, fragrance wise. I am wearing clothes...

Well, lessee ... started off with Caldey Island Lavender Aftershave (wonderful stuff!). After that, a few spritzes of Creed's Olivier EdT set me right.
