    (I availed myself of the 15% off sale at parfum1.com, squeaking in with over an hour and a half to spare, assuming it will end at midnight hour of New York.

    I stocked up on things ostensibly for Mr cathodera, but not being a respector of gender differences in fragrance, I will not hesitate to consider them "ours" and perfume myself at will).

    The carrot note is unique, isn't it.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I really can't pick it out, but it's a strange and great smell. I wore six sprays because I felt it was too light for less, but when you actually wear it, it really blooms. I'd go 4 next time. Very professional and slick smelling.

    A brand new bottle of

    Sous le Vent by Guerlain



    Quietly, this chypre has overtaken Mitsouko, in my ultimate-chypre-love. I am eternally grateful that now I have a full bottle, to outlast my slowly dwindling decant bottle. Yay!!

    I also got two samples I've never smelled before: Jicky parfum by Guerlain, both vintage and new juice.

    Quartz (Molyneux)


    Bought blind, based on the notes and a good price. My initial impression is that it's a lot like Bogart,
    maybe a bit softer/warmer. Not a bad start - I guess I'll see what it's really like after a few wears.

    I had a little too much to drink the other night and apparently bought a bottle of Usher Most off Ebay, just found out when I got the shipping confirmation in my inbox.

    Welp, hope it's good!

    Tested this numerous times, and I love how deceptive this one can be. It's light, yet strong at the same time.


    I'm getting this one blind. Was somewhat torn between this and Epic (which I have tried), but based on the reviews so far, I kinda think Reflection will be more wearable. Helps that reviewers like Vibert owns a bottle of this, so I'm sure I'll like it too
