Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.

Starting off S'n'S Fruity Saturday in Berkeley Square Fig and Cherry. (Thanx Wordy!!)
- Top Notes
- Cassis, Apricots, Sweet berries, Cherry blossom.
- Sweet Soft Figs, Musk.
- Cedar, Amber, Musk
Despite it's modest cost and unlikely combination this is a fun frag of some breeding that on me is more fig than cherry and the cherry is lifelike and not icky.

can't believe it, but I rather like the stuff-- could easily work as a masculine
SotD: Montale Paris' Black Aoud.
Yesterday I wore Puig Quorum and today Diptyque's Eau de Neroli, a generous gift from Roberto.
Cool and rainy Saturday. . . I started in Dior Homme Intense, which goes well with a big cup of coffee on a chilly morning, but I'm switching over to Acier Aluminum in honor of Sniff n Speak "Fruity" day. Just can't get enough of that "Juicy Fruit" accord.
Xerjoff Mefisto (thanks K!).
This is absolutely gorgeous. I don't find it very similar to Silver Mountain Water - this I find has a plumper, bright opening and the Bergamot and Lavender is incredible. Add this to the must-try/buy list of Xerjoff.
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!
