    La Nuit de l'Homme - YSL

    YSL house offers us a surprising fragrance. I can see the similar notes shared with L'Homme, but less pronounced and blended with such lovely other notes. Honestly, I don't like L'Homme, but this one has something really better, IMO.
    I'm sure I will enjoy it the most in a cool summer evening, but it's not so bad in winter, though. Longevity seems awesome.

    Jubilation XXV 50 ml for Mrs. J. She loves it but does not want to take the big bottle on the plane when she travels with her job.
    Opus IV for the whole family to use.
    Lyric Man 50 ml.

    I bought a decant of Plus que Jamais by Guerlain. I have been looking for a full bottle all over the place. I called different stores and Guerlain in Las Vegas. I guess a decant is better than nothing.

    50% off the $62 tagged price! I'd only smelled it off the cap before, so it was almost a blind buy. Based on the note pyramid, I assumed I'd like it, and I was right! It's unique enough to be fun to wear, yet subdued and not over the top, so it'll be a good workhorse, esp. in the warmer weather.

    Well, I did it. Yes, I ordered Kouros 1.6 oz. along with a replacement of Mugler Cologne 3.4 oz. Ordered from Fragrancenet.com and by using the Basenotes cupon code and free shipping, came in at under $80.00 USD! The Kouros is out of curiousity based on its' reviews here and its' reputation. O.K., I bought it blind. Wish me luck!

    Guerlain Heritage EDT (had the EDP, but swapped it off last year due to it being a little too rich for me. Going to give the EDT a shot)
    Ungaro II
    Guerlain Shalimar EDT (the fact that I originally rated this "one star" intrigues me -- I'm going to revisit it now)

    There is no Guerlain boutique here. However, there is an online shopping website here that I found kind of like Ebay. This particular "seller" that I found, I don't know where he gets his stuff. At least I know he sells real stuff. I am so happy to have found him! hahahaha.

    250 ml of Eau de Guerlain in bee bottle and 30 ml of Jicky extrait. The brown juice in the background is a 125 ml bee bottle of Derby that I purchased last year. I want bee bottles in very size so I am saving for the 500 ml one (Eau du Coq?) and the 1 liter one (Jicky EDT?)

    Large Eau Sauvage soap bar.

    This is fantastic stuff. It is not vintage but it does smell extremely vintage to my nose, with plenty of oakmoss. And I haven't even unwrapped the soap bar from its plastic film! Very, very happy with this (cheap) purchase.



    I guess that will be it for the next 6 months!
