Guerlain's Samsara Parfum. Guerlain explains the Hindu name in an advertisement stating that "Samsara is an invitation to serenity and harmony with oneself and the world", which strictly speaking is a misconception because it's in fact liberation from saṃsāra that is considered serene in Hinduism, not saṃsāra itself. That said, Samsara's symmetric arrangement and immaculate materials exude a tranquil fullness, quite baroque and true to its motto. I'm off to Paris and the guerlinade temple tomorrow!

Cologne Pour le Matin by Maison Francis Kurkdjian (first time from a sample - thanks Buzzlepuff!)
This smells exactly as I expected it to: soapy, fresh and yet also a bit like a Febreze or hand-wipe scent. Not a bad thing, but a familiar olfactory association.
