Bond No. 9 Riverside Drive
Bogart Pour Homme
Royal English Leather by Creed, great way to start the week off!
Dzongkha by L`Artisan Parfumeur
it has great bittergreen accord which I found great in Eau d`Italie Bois d`Ombrie. Same Duchaufour )))
Vetiver The Great!!!
Sonia Rykiel MAN
Givenchy Insensé (1993) Daniel Molière Aromatic Fougère
•Top Notes: Black Currant, Mandarin, Basil, Lavender •Middle Notes: Carnation, Cinnamon, Magnolia, Lily of the Valley, Iris, Geranium, Lentiscus •Base Notes: Amber, Cedar, Leather, Oakmoss, Musk, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Fir Balsam
A floral for men, and what a floral! An incredibly rich mix of floral notes in the heart with a citrus-fruity herbal top, and grounded in woods and amber. A kind of light chypre accord (no patchouli, but oakmoss in the base, with citrus top notes) complements what is essentially a fougère fragrance. Can men wear this? Some men think it feminine, but it was made for us, guys! I say "Hop to it!" The name, by the way, is French for "senseless," "foolish," "insane." A good name, I think, since it really does drive me crazy!
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.

Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

LADIES!! (Gents too - lots of these fumes are eminently uni-sex) for a mere $65 clams you get 2.5 ml each of all 31 of her scents in three elegant grey "linen" bound coffers with blotter strips included. And that includes postage!!
Today it's a beautiful soft leather with some citrus and flowers over amber called
A Fleur de Peau.
Luvvin' it. Even more, the guileless and charming copy: "An olfactive impression of a fine piece of leather skin. The fragrance adorns an animalic sensuality in departure harmonized in suppleness with a floral accord"
Couldn'ta said it better myself!!
