    Got it in one! Seemed to take ages for it to arrive. Next releases expected in this month are 3 new Heeley frags (so I'm told).

    My first impressions were very promising - seems extremely well balanced. I like the way the sweetness has been tempered by the cardamom and pepper. Never cloying, eminently wearable and potentially on the wish list !.

    ^ I'm lukewarm with respect to this fragrance so far. The benzoin + honey combo obviously brings to mind F.K.'s cologne / absolue pour le soir and I think the balsamic thanaka wood works very well here too. There's a warm, comforting spiciness (cardamom? possibly even dark roast coffee ?) which envelops you - perfect now that the evenings are beginning to draw in. Somehow though, it just fails to really excite me. I want something more. I think F.K. perhaps realised that when creating his absolue pour le soir (and to a lesser extent, the cologne), which is why he anchored the fragrance with a real dirty, animalic base. Like, but not love

    SOTD is L'Artisan Parfumeur Nuit de Tubereuse. Duchaufour's atypical tuberose is not the buttery, fleshy Fracas kind, it's more about freshly snapped green stems and the humid, loamy soil they grow in. And it's plenty sessy - husband started sniffing deeply and appreciatively as I walked past him and exclaimed, "Mmm, you smell GOOD today!" LOL, I had neither the time nor the energy to start asking about every other day, so I let it go at that.

    Notes include tuberose, cardamom, pepper, clove, citrus, orange blossom, ylang-ylang, rose, mango, angelica, gorse, sandalwood, palisander, musks, benzoin and styrax

    Wish you all a good start to your week!

    That's very accurately put IMO. Plus I can still smell a hint of PG's house gourmandish vibe (that I absolutely dislike) when spraying more for a full wearing. I'm lukewarm with this one again - as usual, PG can only convince in fragments.
    The Absolue pour le Soir is turning into LOVE. I spray in a mist repeatedly my chest, neck and arms and not too focused on one spot. It keeps the honey at bay...

    Today I'm wearing the only celebrity scent I've found worthy of claiming so far, Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely. Its gently floral, musky skin-scent (similar to Narciso Rodriguez for Her EDP but in my opinion less shrieky) is just about perfect for the office.

    Several coworkers complimented me on it today and were shocked to hear that I picked up a 100ml bottle for only $30 at MyChemist...higher end stores such as David Jones and Myer were selling it for full retail price ie. $120 per 100ml!

    I am well pleased with this little bargain and have happily stockpiled it for future dabbings. Recommended.

    Chanel no. 19 Poudre, though my heart yearns for Eau Illuminee, which I have drained post haste and am lemming for a full bottle!

    You guys all smell exquisite today! I was THIS close to two of you while choosing my SotD.

    Settled on L'Occitane Eau d'Iparie instead.

    Good morning everyone Had a sloooow start of the day today. I'm blaming the now basically lack of daylight. Had a bit of trouble deciding on my sotd today, but the blue light outside inspired me to wear L'heure bleue. Hope you all have a smooth beginning of the week!

    The last of my sample. IMO this is the best masculine release of 2011. Very well done, I am enjoying it immensely.

    Foustie, you're such a card!

    Seems unequivocal now ... this is a souvenir cold I'm playing biological host to. While sitting upright, the sinuses stay drained and I can still smell, so I'm sampling the delicious Comme des Garcons Jaisalmer, courtesy of Mike Perez and the New Orleans ... what did someone call it? ... oh, it was Pamplelune who called it a "sample raid." So apt.

    Jaisalmer is like a stoner's version of DK Black Cashmere -- really mellow and not so bold and syrupy as Black Cashmere. I feel an affection growing for this stuff.
