    Bought a tola of 'Royal Dark Musk' from the Arabian Oud store on Oxford Street. Its just wonderfully complex and way more refined than the now infamous Ajmal AA Musk Gazelle (1st and most definitely even more so from the 2nd batch). Its so wonderful on its own cant take wrist off my nose. Seems to go practically with anything interms of layering and just amplifies the layered fragrance that much more. Longetivity is outstanding and so is the silage. Its an animalic musk derived from the gazelle but the animalic nature is very much tamed and refined. Starts of with dark fruity liquirish, than intensly dark smoky flowers almost indolic then finally sweet leathery honey. The whole transition is very smooth and lacks any harshness one would expect from such dark musks.

    Loving this already. Actually reminds me of something Amouage would make, only less complex. Don't pick up any oud though strangely enough.



    This one has surprised me. Didn't care much for it after sampling on store a few times. Saw a bottle for sale online for £15 though and took a low risk gamble. After a full wearing, I have to say that I enjoyed it quite a bit. I don't own many fresh scents but this one is a keeper.

    Broke my voluntary buying freeze with:



    Most people ignore this one in favour of LIDGE, but I like this one quite a bit. It was a blind buy too.

    Being that I too am on a buying freeze I decided to try something very cheap that I had read gets compared to LeMale...



    Cuba Gold

    Got it from Ross 6.99 for a 3.4oz...I couldn't pass it up. It was a blind buy and I must say I am very impressed with the "truck stop" fragrance. Lasted a very long time with a small half spray, could even get whiffs of it after a shower. My mom actually liked it, and when her and I went to eat at Olive Garden our waitress said one of you smell very good. Lol this was 2 mins after my half spray. So I will try tomorrow for a full wearing and see how it goes.

    Oh yeah has some similarities to LeMale, yet this is a lot more toned down, and better imo.

    I decided not to wait for Christmas and bought the current entire Jovoy Paris Line blind, of six scents (100ml each) available in the US (two haven't arrived on US shores yet) at an 30% discount from Henri Bendels with no tax and free shipping. Should receive them by the end of this week.

    Ummm...oops. I went a little overboard.

    In the last week or so:

    Full bottles of:

    Hermes Vetiver Tonka


    Hermes Osmanthe Yunnan




    And a Serge Lutens Bell Jar frenzy...


    La Myrrhe (half jar)


    Iris Silver Mist


    De Profundis


    Mandarine Mandarin


    and finally

    MDCI - Invasion Barbare




    I AM DONE! This is what I saved up for and I can't really think of anything else I "need"....
    (don't hold me to that statement, I'll deny I ever said it)



    Now I play the wait for my packages game...

    Shalimar (Parfum de Toilette) by Guerlain



    This was a blind buy...sort of. I own vintage EdC, new Parfum and vintage Parfum, plus the Ode de la Vanille, but I have only smelled EdP not Parfum de Toilette, which signifies it is vintage. But my fellow Guerlain Fan Club Member rubegon has already pre-approved this one so I felt comfortable bidding on one on eBay, and I think I paid a fair price for it considering the supply of this stuff is quickly dwindling.
