I also got a 5mL decant of Reflection Man a few days ago, but I think I already mentioned that.
Just recieved a bottle of Gucci Pour Homme 2.
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
It's safe to say that I will be purchasing this as soon as I get off of work. It is my SOTD from a sample. I have been getting whiffs of this stuff throughout the day wondering who is smelling so good then realizing I am in my office by myself and it seems to follow me everywhere.
This fragrance is definitely more complex than the note pyramid suggests

Just got Amouage Honour Man. Last month Amouage Memoir Man and Creed Royal Oud.

Subscribing, just so I know what everyone is getting.
Awesome day shopping at the Palazzo, hit up Barney's not many new sniffers but did smell amazing green from CDG pretty nice. Then hit Dior and Guerlain upstairs and ended up sniffing a TON in those.
Picked up Eau Sauvage Parfum mmmm... and Moscow from Guerlain. I liked New York also but didn't care for Shanghai.
The 3 Desert oud scents were pretty awesome the heaviest one had some nice oud kind of reminded me a tad of leather oud from Dior but even dirtier and denser nice stuff. Might have to go back and resniff those 3.
Also still wanting some Voyou one of these days.

I broke my seld imposed buying ban today and ordered 24 Gold by Scent-Story. I've heard so many good things about this scent, I had to give it a go. Should be here in about 1 week.
I just bought a 75ml bottle of vintage Zino Davidoff from a wonderful small perfumery (Odette's) hidden in the heart of Sydney. I can't wait to get home so that I can give it a full test run against the current formulation.

The fabled musk deer searches the world over for the source of the scent which comes from itself.
Thanks to my wonderful GF on our recent trip up north, and one day spree in NYC . . . .
Frederic Malle Portrait of a Lady
...and it smells nothing like A*Men to me
Ambre 114 - It's been a long time but I have finally got around to purchasing one of the best and complex Ambres out there. The way the resinous Sandalwood mixes with the Ambre is gorgeous and the added Rose note that blooms from the heart of the scent is heavenly.
