Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

SotD - L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme (EDT)
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
Clarice Lispector ( 1920-1977) - Perfumes da Terra / Earth Perfumes
Now it's Original Santal (Creed). Several spritzes. Take care! ;-)
Penhaligans LP No 9
LP No. 9 casts a spell of powdered darkness from its complex heart of ylang-ylang, spices and iris. The aromatic mingle of clove, vanilla & earthy patchouli add a sweetened ginger-ale touch to heady layers that open and smooth into a moreish bubblegum-scented delight.
Five that I am enjoying right now
1) Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company
2) Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
3) Bois des Iles by Chanel
4) Devin by Aramis
5) Coromandel by Chanel
It was a calculated risk. Unfortunately, I'm bad at math.

It's SNIFFATHLON time for me today! Yuppie ya yey!
I've been visiting Poznań today, had to run some important errands. I used the occasion that most of the places I had to visit were close to each other and close to my favourite niche perfume boutique in an Old Town District so I decided to drop by. Smelled some goodies, and also sampled some news. On the right arm near the elbow Amouage Dia Men, on the top of my hand some Atelier Cologne Ambre Nue and then a generous spritz of Parfum d'Empire Equistrius. And as always I they made me two samples to take home, which were already mentioned Ambre Nue and Annick Goutal Le Chevrefeuille . Then a short walk around the Old Town and off to Stary Browar. There I visited Douglas to smell some news and not-news. I accidentally grabbed Cartier Declaration Cologne and found it quite nice, the SA that accompanied me while sniffing there was really nice and she knew far more about perfume than other Douglas workers I've encountered so far.
Then... one floor upstairs to Sephora! They didn't have anything new at the moment, but my favourite SA was on her duties, so I got some samples for my Mum and got two samples of some creams that maybe will help me with my recent skin imbalance problems.
Straight from Sephora I jumped to L'Occitane shop. I sampled their new Eaux de Cologne trio. They smell great, really natural and invigorating! And their price is also nice. I especially liked the gree juice of Captivante which starts citrusy, but quickly transforms into an aromatic scent of mint and basil, classy and traditional cologne!
And then off to the train station to return home. So now I'm wearing like 10 or maybe 15 scents, each of my limbs has few differently scented areas. I'm in heaven! Who would expected the day would be so good. And everything started from Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche.
