Applying this right now ... I guess scent of the midnight?

Weirdest thing happened . . . just as soon as I had finished applying I found myself reaching for a crisp, clean white shirt to put on . . . this ever happened to any of you guys?
Lorenzo Villoresi Patchouli

Bois des Îles edt
Azzaro Pour Homme Intense
Fleurs de Bois
Green Floral Chypre
Top Notes: Galbanum, Grass, Green Mandarin, Lemon, Rosemary
Middle Notes: Rose, Jasmine, Iris
Base Notes: Oakmoss, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Myrrh, Birch
This is a very nice green scent with a good supporting base of oakmoss and woodsy notes, notably patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, and birch. The birch here doesn't make a particularly leathery. The tangerine in the top will do for bergamot, so I guess this would pass as a woody-green-floral chypre with rose, jasmine and iris doing the heavy lifting for the florals section. There is a touch of incense in this, which is due to the resinous quality of rosemary; any maker of church incense knows that you can atone for inferior frankincense by adding a little good rosemary oil into the mix. Galbanum, grass, and rosemary are a good green note here, with just enough of a hint of dissonance between the dense rosemary and the slightly sharp-and-sour grass note.
Yr good bud,

In a certain way the most perfect perfume ever created. Extremely well blended, soft, long lasting, compelling, gender free, naturally beautiful and a bit raunchy as well.

ointments and perfume delight the heart....
It's sampling time...
After yesterday's SotE - Histoire de Parfums 1725 Casanova, which obviously stands for a soft-spoken, shy coaxer (sillage!), but overall nice and sharing a certain feel of a discreet Le Male...
today it felt like a full wearing of Parfumerie Generale's Querelle
+ right wrist Aomassai and further up the arm Musc Maori (quite a double yuk)
SotE tonight will then be a full wearing of Bois Blond in order to conclude the PG sampling over the past few days.
