Hello everyone! First day of July! Tell us your scent of the day!

Current wardrobe: Guerlain Vetiver, Terre d'Hermes, Safari, Burberry Weekend, Fahrenheit
Guerlain Cologne du Parfumeur (2010) Thierry Wasser Green Citrus
•Notes: Calabrian Orange Blossom, Lemon, Bergamot, Lavender, Mint, Rosemary
The notes in themselves suggest nothing out-of-the-ordinary in this scent, but the fragrance is not quite like any other eau-de-cologne-style scent I've ever smelled before. As a sales gimmick, Guerlain has been offering a special drink at the Paris opening for this which contains the notes listed above (the lavender in the drink is a lavender syrup). In the days when perfumer's alcohol was not denatured, but potable, people did drink the cologne to right real or imagined maladies. Strangely, this does smell almost drinkable — not recommended given today's denatured perfume alcohol. The smell is very Guerlain, even without the guerlinade signature base notes: really elegant, unobtrusive, yet anything but below-the-radar. Very refreshing and citrusy, with a distinctly green and herbal drydown, a slightly resinous one, which is perhaps due to the rosemary. Generous quantities at fairly reasonable (for Guerlain) prices. I got the 8.5 oz. (250ml.) size. A good thing, because it will require reapplication if you want it to last. Recommended.

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.

VIE DE CHATEAU INTENSE
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..."

Jo Malone - Amber & Lavender
Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.
1969 Parfum de Revolte by Histoires de Parfums
peach, cardamom, clove, rose, white flowers, chocolate, coffee, patchouli, white musk
This is a well-blended oriental gourmand that comes across like rum and dark chocolate, with a nice touch of rose-patchouli. Somewhat sweet but never cloying. Longevity and sillage are top notch.
