Wild Aoud by Montale was my first true love/ obsession after years of wearing frags. It has the perfectly wearable amount of wood, tobacco, geranium, and an intoxicating smoky patchouli base. It has been slammed elsewhere for not being "wild", but that matters not to me......all I know is when I wear it I compulsively smell my wrist and/or undershirt several times an hour. Makes me feel supremely confident when I'm wearing it and people around me seem to respond that way. I've come to calling it my " secret weapon" when I go out on gigs, because women always want to know what it is when they are close to me (usually when I squeeze into the full bar area to order something while on break). I better be careful, or my lovely wife may forbid me from wearing this...even though I'm truly wearing it for myself.
Hmm...a picture. Well, it does have a rose/geranium accord, so I'm gonna go with one of my favorite paintings: Heroic Roses by Paul Klee
Music....the mysteriousness of it makes me think of my favorite Horace Silver/Art Blakey tune Nica's Dream (for the Baroness Nica koenigswarter).
