I don't know much about medicine, but I know what I like. -- S.J. Perelman
original lacoste at tj maxx for $10! talk about lemon and lime... definatly a summer scent.
Creed Original Santal. I am on a SERIOUS Creed kick lately. I am building my Creed wardrobe up again.
To calm myself down after the whole Rei Rien debacle, I've purchased 2 x 7,5 ml of genuine discontinued vintage Parfum de Peau extrait. I also got a vintage habit de fete bottle of Shalimar edt and a 15 ml mini of Ambre Sultan.
I already feel a bit more relaxed.
Decided to see how I would like it.
Got the 100ml. Just told them to keep the bag. lol
Diptyque Eau Duelle 100ml
Some vintage Guerlain Mitsouko eau de Cologne
Penhaligons Opus 1870 EDT
2 Penhaligons Lily & Spice scented candles

Congrats on the EDC, Dmitri - any idea on the year? 80s or earlier?
This looks identical to the Vol de Nuit & Parure EDCs I stumbled across a year or two ago.
It's a bit of a sad fact of life that relatively recent (20+ years) EDCs seem to have a lot more body weight and kick to them than some of the current EDPs . . .
I think this dates to the 70's mr. reasonable. It has the plastic stopper, but the engraving on the base of the bottle dates it between 1972 and 1979.
I agree though... a Mitsouko EDC I have tried from a sample (not from this bottle), has much more staying power than the current EDT formulation. This difference is actually what inspired me to make this purchase.

Chanel- Bleu de Chanel-- kind of underwhelming at first, but it may be a grower.
Guerlain-- Eau de Cologne Imperiale-- Hell yeah! Sure, the longevity and sillage are EDC strength, but what a great smell! It reminds me of Creed's Neroli Sauvage and Bois de Cedrat, but with a lavender note and some other differences. It has a nice floral quality that's neither masculine nor feminine-- and I love the herbal edge that it has. This is my first experience with Guerlain's line of eaux de cologne--and I can't wait to try the others such as Eau de Guerlain and Eau du Coq-- as well as the new one (forget the name). Granted, it's hard to screw up a fresh citrus scent, but this one is masterfully composed. I also really like the bee bottle.
Eau du Coq is superb and I have emptied half a bottle of the new one, Eau du Cologneur, this summer already - I think it's a great addition to the collection - the subtle green note they talk about works a treat .

Thanks for the suggestion on the Eau de Guerlain, Mike_P and Mr. Reasonable. I was already wondering which of the eaux to try next and your endorsements of EdG make it a shoe-in. I'm putting it on the top of my shopping list!
