    Today I took receipt of my 250ml Guerlain Metallica - sealed, in both boxes.
    I also got my 80's Guerlain Eau de Verveine EDT, which is already proving rather extraordinary!

    today i bought from Creed Boutique NYC:


    Creed Baie de Genievre



    The name of this fragrance comes from one of its raw materials: the juniper berry. In French, "baie" means "berry". "Genievre" means "juniper". To get the most exquisite scent, CREED gives the juniper berry two to three years to ripen, picks it by hand and dries it. The rest is a secret, but some say this fine CREED fragrance smells like that other juniper berry concoction: the dry gin martini. Baie de Genievre is a green, fruity and spicy fragrance of enduring elegance and style.

    Classification: Woody / Oriental / Classic

    Characteristics: Peppery, fruity, spicy, woody, leaf of cinnamon tree and Bourbon vetiver. Most commonly used by men, but a favorite among women who appreciate spicy scents.

    Top notes: Bergamot, cinnamon leaves
    Middle notes: Clove, juniper berry
    Base notes: Vetiver, ambergris


    AND


    Creed Santal Imperial



    Made for the Austro-Hungarian Emperor in the 1800's, Santal Imperial is pure masculinity, a powerful combination of spices and wood. Its name comes from the main ingredient, sandalwood, one of the most precious components in fragrance.

    CREED buys its sandalwood in Mysore, the "City of Palaces" in India, which offers the best in the world. The wood's high cost -- and Mysore's location unreachable by air -- make fine Mysore sandalwood impossible for most fragrance firms.

    Yet CREED has been in business with Mysore sandalwood farmers for generations and can obtain the best for its clients, harvesting the wood in concert with rules that ensure sustainability.

    Santal Imperial is power and exclusivity, a sandalwood and ambergris base upon which tonka bean, bergamot and citrus form an impressive summit.

    Classification: Woods-oriental / Spicy / Classic

    Characteristics: Soft, fresh and earthy with a lingering soft and spicy base. Santal Imperial is a "universal" eau de toilette fragrance.

    Top Notes: Bergamot, citrus
    Middle Notes: Tonka bean
    Base Notes: Ambergris and sandalwood



    what i like most is how distinctive the bottles are...

    Maxim's Pour Homme.

    I have been wearing this more and more lately and it's edging into my absolute top favourites along with Patou Pour Homme, PdN New York and Tiffany for Men. I find it reassuring in an old school way, and yet it also has a presence to it that is incredibly modern and alive. Absolutely beautiful fragrant stuff. I cleaned out the remaining 3 x 50 mls. at a very reasonable price so I think I'm set for life.

    Ran across Tuberosa Agave by Voluspa at SF airport - who was to the guess the pharmacy doubles as a cool little niche fragrance shop? Soon as I smelled it, I knew I had to have it. Very nice indeed, and super cheap, too!

    And the fall frenzy goes on:

    50 ml of Nemo, by Cacharel (IMO smells exactly like a creamy Solo, by Loewe);
    50 ml of Opium pour Homme, by YSL (finally got it - it's in a sealed box now waiting for me to go home ...sigh).

    I couldn't resist on these deals. I bought a .5 oz All American Stetson @ Walgreens for 6 bucks and change -- bought this one blind, I don't really care for it, it definitely smells cheap. Also got Axe Vice on sale @ CVS for 1.37 -- can't beat it for a body spray.
