Xerjoff 1861 arrived last week.
Planning to order FM Geranium Pour Monsieur in the next week or two. I'm looking forward to adding a mint fragrance to my wardrobe.
When I think spring, I think MiP for some reason. I really want to get my hands on a sample of APOM and or Jardin D'Amalfi for spring though
The same assortment I wear any other time of the year.
Still early for spring here. When it comes, I always bring out Diorissimo, Joy, and Metal, happy flowers from spring meadows.
Mid-winter is still in the air here, unfortunately.
But more or less, I don't put much thought into the season/fragrance correlations, with a few exceptions.
Sous le Vent has a crispness that I like a lot in early spring.
Parfums de Nicolais L temps du un fette:-) would be great ......or Joy:-) .....neither i have as of yet
There are only a few frags i can think if that shouldn't be worn in warm weather.
But one frag that is great all year, but truly blossoms in warm weather is Philosykos. Amazing scent.
Creed Royal Water- Nice and fresh with the juniper berries and peppermint
A Lab On Fire L'Anonyme- A clean, fresh geranium
Diptyque Philosykos- Fresh fig
Arquiste Bountoniere No.7- Gardenia and vetiver that isn't too "girly"
Creed Jardin D'Amalfi- Citrus, neroli, vetiver . . . Spring in a bottle
Creed GIT- No explanation needed
Creed Windsor- A clean, fresh rose that doesn't smell like my grandmother
Creed Sublime Vanille- The lemon topnotes keep the vanilla really light
.... still might add a couple more to the rotation
Wearing Monsieur Balmain today for the 1st time... This will certainly be very nice on hot days.
I have really been looking forward to breaking out the Dior Homme Sports (2008 & 2012), Jardin d'Amalfi, Chez Bond, Straight to Heaven, VIW, and Channel Allure Homme Sport, Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche, AdG, Nautica Voyage, Neroli Portofino, Heeley Sel Marin, Versace Man Eau Fraiche, etc., etc..... Man I can't wait until it gets warm out. For a lot of reasons actually...
Since it rains here, well always, it will be Vetiver Tonka, Rose 31, GPH II, and maybe Pure Havane. If the sun decides to show Edition Blanche and Aventus.
Windsor, Jardin d'Amalfi, GIT, Selection Verte, Green Valley, Acqua di Parma Colonia, Ichnusa, Fougere Royale and Fou d'Absinthe, to name just a few.
It's only February 1st, so no spring here yet, but I'm planning on buying Lalique White before spring does get here.
Current Favorites (not in any particular order)
Hanae Mori HM EDT
I purchased a split of Creeds Jardin d Amalfi and have been saving it especially for the Spring/Summer.
Anything as usual, before, I used to prefer lighter frags as soon as weather was getting warmer, but now I am pretty open to wearing whatever I like, even heavier scents.
Mugler cologne/Vetiver Tonka
Geranium pour monsieur
Hermes Pamplemousse Rose
"PLAIN LIVING, HIGH THINKING" O.W., De Profundis
