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..."

Good morning folks !. Prada Infusion d'Homme today.
Azzaro Pour Homme Intense (Vintage After Shave)
Splashed the vintage After Shave as a cologne. Has medium sillage and longevity for an EDT, but for an After Shave is outstanding (my Antaeus vintage after shave is stronger though)

Dangerous Complicity by Etat Libre d'Orange - first time wearing
There is a 'typical' woody/amber aromachemical in this that is evident from the first spray, but it's died down a bit now and allowed to enjoy the rest of the notes (a cola-like quasi-gourmand with just the right amount of sheen).
"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"
-- Eckhart Tolle
