Amouage Lyric... a real treat on a crappy, rainy Monday morning
Parfums D'Orsay Étiquette Bleue (1993) Alfred d'Orsay Citrus Chypre
•Top Notes: Bergamot, Orange, Lemon, Petitgrain, Rosemary •Middle Notes: Rosewood, Orange Blossom •Base Notes: Sandalwood, Balsamic Notes, Oakmoss
Very fresh going on. An agreeable accord, with a tight blend of notes. The whole is so tightly woven it's hard to disentangle beyond citrus and slightly floral notes. Limited longevity, but very nice while it lasts. Prominent sillage, but quickly fades. Risk applying liberally if you want a trace to linger.
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.

Even though it's gonna be a hot day here in the kingdom
that I call home, I'm in a sweet kinda mood.
But I couldn't choose between Hot Couture and Flowerbomb,
so, I'm in both ... I'm going to be a cloying motherf***er today.
Do I care?! No, I don't think so!
Both are in Eau de Parfum concentration - of course!

POUR UN HOMME
Eau de Toilette
L'IMPACT DE POUR UN HOMME
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..."

I love cologne.
Lapidus Pour Homme
My SOTD is Very Valentino pour Homme
Ex Floribus Vinis No 6 - Piper Officinarum (from Piazetta di Portofino).
[from the writeup]
Top (green fresh): bergamot, lime, lemon, wild berry.
Middle (floral aromatic): pepper berry, rose, lily, violet.
Base (woody musk): liquorice, sandalwood, vetiver, patchouli, white musk, mushroom.
I get what seems like a tobacco note from the beginning, rather than citrus or fruit, then a movement into the floral accord. I find the other Ex Floribus Vinis fragrances far too fruity-sweet for my taste, but this comes across not at all in that way on my skin, despite the fruit notes in the description.
