After 9 straight days of Honour Man, I'm wearing Bvlgari Man today. Will be in close quarters with others and wanted something nice, inoffensive, and w/ minimal sillage.
I must say I really do love this scent!

Really diggin' this one. Classic fougère with citrus chypre elements thrown in the mix.
However, I can't justify the price. I think the bottle is kinda ugly, too.

LOST! in scent and music
I've recently fallen for Guerlain Homme. This is the EdT. Thierry Wasser didn't put fresh notes in the top only, but built all three drydown layers around a commonality of freshness. First, an aromatic-alcoholic-fresh layer, a very lifelike, almost drinkable imitation of the invigorating Mojito harmony (mint, lime, rum notes). Second, a floral-bitter-fresh layer, an unusual scent of rosy geranium, rhubarb and tannic green tea. And third, a dry-warm-fresh layer of cedarwood, patchouli, sugar cane and vetiver (the latter as "a nod to Jean-Paul Guerlain and his first-ever perfume, Vetiver," Thierry Wasser explained). The result is pure understated elegance. Its greenness has an exceptional character that Thierry Wasser himself boldly described as "inimitable", a dewy, fluid chlorophyllous sensation of growing plants and tropical rainforest, irresistible for its mellowness and lushness and alliance with Guerlain's sweet smile, and soon becoming Wasser's distinctive olfactory mark chez Guerlain. The Eau de Parfum version, also labelled "Intense", has, yes, much intenser wood notes, which brings out a wonderful salty tension of vetiver and cedar through the drydown (with an evident nod to Jean-Paul Guerlain's Vetiver, as promised) but also tends to overshadow the dewy and gentle Mojito accord that makes the original so delightful up top.

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..."
