    Baudelaire by Byredo.

    The notes sounded wonderful and the dandy references hard to resist, but this scent did not sit well with me. I am glad I only sampled.

    I'm afraid Byredo's aesthetic doesn't really mesh with Baudelaire's aesthetic. I found Baudelaire pleasant but unremarkable, but when I think of the poet, I think decadent... Poison, Muscs Koublai Khan, that sort of thing, not a fresh milquetoast masculine.

    A big favorite on BN, Rive Gauge Pour Homme. Totally unwearable on me - it makes me nauseous.

    10 Corso Como.
    Tam Dao is one of my all-time favourite scents, and reviews make it appear that 10 Corso Como is a must for any TD-lover. It nauseates me. A lot.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Agreed on this one.

    Nearly bought blind because of the hype, and because I struggled to find it anywhere. Eventually did find it and was relieved I'd not wasted my cash.

    Boss Baldessarini.

    "Modernist-dry-woody-fruity" sounded exactly like the sort of thing to shake up my wardrobe and I only just purchased Rochas Lui ahead of it.

    Wearing a sample of Baldessarini today, I can say that was a good decision in hindsight. It is very interesting and the best of the Boss scents by far but--critically--it is *absolutely* not me.

    Well worth a sniff for anyone who hasn't tried it but I really lucked out with Lui in this instance.

    If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.
