Brief sampling of the last week or so. Still spending a lot of time with Tauer's Miriam, but in between trying bits and pieces of others:
Creed White Flowers: much nicer than I was expecting ( i.e. shrill or wimpy tuberose-jasmine ), in fact if En Passant didn't exist it would be worth recommending as a Lilac fragrance. However, En Passant does exist and White Flowers' drydown loses its lilac cool and becomes a little laundry-musky.
Kilian Rose Oud. I smelled this years ago now and found it so lacking in oud that it annoyed me and never got a second sniff. I now appreciate what a really nice and well-composed rose fragrance it is, almost chocolate-y in feel without any actual chocolate note.
Strange Invisible Perfumes Tropical Vial. Vial is very unfortunate in any fragrance name meant to be spoken. The perfume is slightly fruity, slightly minty, with that grain-y feel I've come to expect from all-natural florals. Me and all naturals just don't get along, it seems.
Keiko Mecheri's Tuberose should rock my socks off starting as it does as a hybrid between Tubereuse Criminelle and Poison, but it doesn't. This fades incredibly quickly to a synthetic-soapy musk, then disappears entirely an hour or so later. Odd.
