    Last night I was testing something not mentioned often on the boards -- from very lovely Ms.E -- Tonino Lamborghini Kif. Apart from the fact that it has been long discontinued, virtually unknown for my regular Directories and, consequently, impossible to find for a decent price -- it is great! A nice oriental with chypresque tendencies ending with dry sandalwood, lively patchouli and delicios sweet amber. Not for the timid of heart. (In a Blind Sniff I would have probably said Parfumerie Generale, and the second thought was about similarities with Bois des Iles and then Ambre Sultan, how about that?). As translated from Arabic, the name means "haschisch" or "marijuana", and the fragrance is addictive. It is no brainer what my SotD is going to be today and many more days. Thank you, E.!

    Wow Wolfie - great review! I'm so glad you like this lush but very obscure perfume! (Btw, my brother bought this for me when he was 16 and into fast cars, and I was 14 and into perfume. I still have that red leather-bound flacon, plus an enormous refillable canister that I just hope I never need to refill!) Actually, I feel a bit of serendipity going on, for it's highly unusual for me to check in sans fragrance, but I did this morning and I decided to be scent-twins with you today, just because I can! So I'm also in the very addictive Kif by Lamborghini -perfect for this clear, crisp morning.





    Y'all have a fantastic day!

    It's supposed to reach 80 here today, so I am exercising my perogative to change my mind and save Fumerie Turque for a cooler day.

    In light of yesterday's mini-leather kick, I'm wearing PdE's Cuir Ottoman, which, on the "lumberjack butch" scale (thanks to actiasluna for such a great turn of phrase -- which I am now shamelessly stealing, again ), is significantly less than Cuir Mauresque and much more leather-y than the elegant suede of Daim Blond. I'm loving it.

    Guerlain's Tonka Impériale, "between gingerbread and chocolate," food-loving Sylvaine Delacourte puts it, as pleasing as Cologne du 68 but executed at a level of quality and restrain that brings forth sensory effects of exquisite Parisian leather goods and fine cigars. A pine note adds to the gingerbread aroma and its accompanying atmosphere of fireplaces and furred walks in snowy winter woods. Like the previous L'Art et la Matière fragrances, Tonka Impériale doesn't have much of a development once applied, although the opening bergamot-rosemary-almond-jasmine accord has its own brandied vibe, a soberer variant of Jean-Paul Guerlain's boozy Spiritueuse Double Vanille.

    You're very welcome Twolf, but the pleasure is all mine! Since you've sampled almost everything under the sun, you must know that it's extremely gratifying for me to be able to introduce you to a fragrance that you actually like. I'm just thrilled, and enormously pleased with that ol' Kif for being on its best behaviour (and I thought it meant "pleasure" for some reason, but that could be a slangy marijuana connection, of course.)

    Anyway, I'll be in Coco for the rest of the day. Y'all have a wonderful evening!

So for today, I wore heavy hitter combo Black Aoud with Bulgari Black, touched it up in the early afternoon on the drydown with Citizen Queen, and this evening I added a little Amazone to the mix.
