That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

Don't Smell the Flowers,
They're an Evil Drug to Make You Lose Your Mind --- Dio
Well, since today is my birthday, I think I will wear Creed Royal Water.
Arome 3 Tradition
Habit Rouge Beau Cavalier by Guerlain. Quit possibly the best mens fragrance out there IMO.
Vetiver (vintage EdT) by Guerlain
This is becoming a regular scent in my rotation. Sort of the default, go-to scent in my wardrobe, when I'm not sure what I want to wear. I have to go easy with this one, it can be a headache-inducer if I go more than 2 light sprays.

SotD: EdP Frederic Malle's Vetiver Extraordinaire. Just received it in the mail from Barney's yesterday. Just as gorgeous as I remember! Being a vetiver guy, I think this is my new holy grail. Either this or Fat Electrician - can't definitively decide yet.
Penhaligon's Eau de Verveine
In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
Earlier I was in Bulgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert and I've just now doused myself liberally in Christian Dior's unblinking Eau Sauvage.

I'm on my second frag of the day. Just took a shower and put on some Swiss Army.
Habit Rouge Eau Legere by Guerlain
Mandarina Duck Pure Black
Started the day in L'eau Serge Lutens. Havana right before I rushed out the door. It faded by noon, so I spent noon to 6:30p scent-free. Michael Kors Men to remedy that. It's beautiful. . . but I showered, and went directly to Chergui. Oh my, it is so wonderful. . .
Chamade EDT (Guerlain)
Gucci pour Homme this evening. Cedar incense heaven.
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!

For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm. - Vladimir Nabokov
