Hello everyone. I had a busy spring, summer, and fall. Hence the disappearance.
Sooooo.....whats new in the world of perfumery? Any unbelievable new scents? Discontinuations? Reformulations? Revivals? What terrible stuff has the IFRA been up to? Everyone still falling over Aventus or is there a new one? Let me know.....

Simplex Sigillum Veri
One of the popular things out now is Dior Homme Parfum (not the intense version).
Too many to mention. Some to note: Bleu De Chanel EDP, Pure Wood by Mugler, a boatload of Montales and Manceras etc.
Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.
I saw the Zoologist offerings and they interest me a little bit. Not a huge fan of the Muglers, like em but no love. Montale already had a boatload out, now they have more?
I saw that Tea for Two is being brought back, that would extremely excite me if I hadn't already bought an overpriced bottle of it.
-D&G Pour Homme "INTENSO" a suppose intense rendition of the original love one.
-Creed's Royal Oud now Available in 4oz flask

"Thank GOD for the nose, for without it we would not be enjoying these beautiful created Scents" also Remember "Balance is everything and the key to appreciating "
It is true that fish stink. It is also true that the river is
beautiful. But the river would be beautiful despite the fish. What
is noxious remains so.
That is not to say that sh*t is not useful when buried in the wheat
field. Bread made from the field tastes sweet, wine from the arbor
sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks
and keep his sandals clean. c.21 of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Trans: Normandi Ellis
You might of missed Valentino Uomo which was well received.
Plenty has come out. In addition to what's been mentioned:
-Paco Rabanne's Invictus hit the US. This one seems to be either love or hate.
-Issey Miyake launched Nuit d'Issey, an oriental.
-Boss Bottled Night is now widely distributed in the US - previously, it was exclusive to Sephora.
-By Kilian came out with three new scents. Trying them over the next few days.

My mission statement: "I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone."
The Invictus and Valentino don't look up my alley. I looked up the Kilians a day ago and recall one of them sounded interesting. Ive secretly loved Boss Bottled Night for about a year and a half now, even though I don't own a bottle yet. Something about it really sings to me but all the reviews have kept me from buying it for fear of smelling generic. I know that's pathetic on my part. Maybe this year will be the year I buy it.
I saw Amouage has come out with Journey, sounds like it could be a winner. That and AdP Colonia Leather. As well as a current battle with myself over TF Italian Cypress and Halston Z14.
Tralala just went on my 'to test list.' It looks like it has some potential. If its been an uninteresting past few months, I may spend this winter catching up. Still have a few classics that I want to get in the vintage form before that stock dries up.
Whats the latest word on Tom Ford London making it to the U.S.?
