    I find more and more that my tastes are completely divergent with Octavian's. Oh well. At least it's becoming quite consistent, so I know what I should look out for or not!

    The other day a woman in her mid 50s was standing 'upstream' from me at a pedestrian crossing, and her perfume was AB-SO-LUTELY stunning! I asked her if she minded divulging what she was wearing, and she smiled and said "Miss Dior... but not the new stuff... the old stuff. Pure parfum". I was wowed.
    Her olfactory fingerprint is held firmly in my mind since that day.

    So, just a short while ago I bought a 1/2 oz bottle for a steal. I can't wait for it to arrive.

    Terracotta Eau Sous Le Vent by Guerlain 100ml


    Enhanced with the sunny perfume of the Tiare flower, this delicious mist hydrates skin and amplifies a golden tan (thanks to the Tan Booster complex). The vegetable protein-enriched formula helps protect skin against dryness and the intense heat of summer days. Apply in the morning to moisturize, after sun exposure to soothe, or as a generous splash of summer fragrance to refresh the skin. -from www.dillards.com

    O no!!! A Jo Malone knock-off!!! Well, it was for my wife's birthday. She loved it.

    Somehow Roses are Roses ("The way of flowers" yikes!) is becoming a local success: the company is opening stores in the most respected shopping centers around Buenos Aires, besides the fact people like their scents, which are good yet not so hefty priced as Malone's - don't ask for complexity, please, these are more of a "nice shop" scent rather than perfume masterpieces wannabes.

    So far, I tried Bitter Oranges, Basil and Verbena, Wild Figs and Amber and Ginger. Bitter Oranges is like an hybrid of Eau Sauvage and YSL Pour Homme; Basil and Verbena and Wild Figs are a tad more original, the first one with a clear citric character morphing into Basil. Wild Fig smells synthetic albeit good: these three are more of an EdC rather than an EdT. Now, Amber and Ginger is sold as a masculine scent that happens to be a scent with prominent sillage and good longevity, but too mainstream-like for my tastes - rather stick to the classics.

    More info on this company: http://www.rosesareroses.com/

    PS: Of course I am furiously bitching at this company for this is an insult to local creativity, that, as a matter of fact, abounds. Would you please tell the people of Jo Malone to start actions for plagiarism against them?

    Sorry I'm a bit off-topic but seeing your post I ve just been looking at les senteurs website I ve been very very impressed with the prices of this website. I wonder if it is because the USD is so low right now but god they are way cheaper for everything, specially the Amouage and the Malle, very competitive prices indeed, had never heard about this website..
    Current top 10 in no particular order : Malle - Carnal Flower (pre 2008) ; Montale - Black Aoud ; Bond #9 - Silver Factory ; Tauer - L'air du désert marocain ; C&Z - No 88 ; Francis K. - APOM ; Creed - Aventus ; Amouage - Epic ; Profumum - Dulcis In Fundo ; Amouage - Opus V

    Yesterday I was in a little fragrance shop and saw they had a couple bottles of YSL M7, the original or vintage, whatever you want to call it. It was in the old bottle not the new bottle. One was a 50ml unopened(I assume it was the old bottle but couldn't see it), the other was a 100ml which was opened and they were using as a tester but it wasn't a tester. It had 90% still left in it. I sweet talked the SA into selling me the 100ml and got it for a very reasonable price. They still had the box carefully opened from the bottom with the plastic still on it like I always do with my frags. Kind of wore it last night and found I can't stand that medicinal note for too long.

    I wish I liked it, I tried to like it. I'm not sure I get past that note which I assume is the controversial one that everyone mentions. I'll try to wear it again to see if my opinion changes. I think I might have just over applied it and it got too intense with that note. I'll try a lighter application.

    It very much reminds me of Tom Ford Extreme but with that extra note in there. Whatever it is that gives it that medicinal aspect. That's why I figured I would like it. I'm almost thinking about going back to get the 50ml bottle just to have to trade off since it seems like people want that version and bottle if they think it's been reformulated. I don't know whether it has or not, I haven't compared and this is my first exposure to it.
