For such an unobtrusive scent the staying power on this is amazing - never noticed till today. Probably the only contemporary scent I would actually love to have in a splash bottle.

On the L'Artisan Vetiver 1978 thread Mike Perez said something that inspired me to pick my sotd. He said he thought the L'Artisan Vetiver 1978's existence was an "urban legend." A great title for a scent. I picked L'Artisan's Patchouli 1978 because it feels like it would be an urban legend like the Vetiver.
I'll fess up too: I didn't put on a scent until 4:30pm. It's a Saturday afternoon and I didn't bother with a shower or clothes until late in the afternoon.

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
