    Default naughty, naughty layering

    I just layered Kouros under Shalimar EDT + extrait. Talk about sweet dreams.

    Sounds interesting!! Right now I have beachy-dirty layering: Kuumba Made Black Copium (black coconut/opium) and Victoria's Secret Luscious Kisses (orange/coconut/tonka.) Great for a humid, sweaty day.

    I layered Cuir Mauresque with Coco Mademoiselle EDP. An earthy, semi-skanky spicy leather!

    It all started with a decant of Jicky EDT. I had the typical reaction of one fairly new to fragrance and only just plumbing the sweaty depths of animalics, a "what the hell was that" jolt followed by the "give me more. Now," hankering.

    After Jicky I just had to find out what Kouros was all about, and now I'm ready to throw over all my "nice" scents for the joy of skank. Whether it's cheese redolent of old sneakers of perfume that smells like a long weekend in bed, I just want to luxuriate in the unsublimated creaturely. I'm thinking of using Kouros as my fragrance "undergarment" - it goes with everything because it goes with me.

    fwiw, I think a man could layer Shalimar and Kouros; I think he should

    I have just discovered Miss Balmain, which on it's own adds a layer of "fond du ashtray" to the leather. Q for anyone out there - is the current iteration close to the vintage (my decant was vintage parfum).

    I'm about to go to bed; tonight the Kouros is under green, bitter yet elegant Weil de Weil. It's about 70F here for the 1st time in months and I need to celebrate with galbanum, leafy things - and civety stank-n-skank - aaaaah!

    I often reach for Chanel 19 EDP on days like that and sometimes layer it with roses.

    Just testing out a layering of Eau de Noho and Drakkar Noir - so far it smells like a transgender violet bomb....and I like it!

    In my opinion not! Miss Balmain was my signature scent until I got a new bottle and didn't like it anymore. That must have been the moment they changed the formula.

    Another one bites the dust! What comes close to original Miss Balmain that's in circulation?
    What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
