    Decided to get Azzaro Chrome for the spring: $15 at Walmart for a half-ounce travel spray.

    And yes, I checked the box, and this particular bottle still has real oakmoss. But I don't think it will for much longer... with the IFRA police in full force, will my Chrome be considered "vintage" in a year or two?

    It arrived this morning via FedEx.

    It came with the whole package wrapped in a thick black plastic bag (possibly new regulation to prevent leakage?). It had several stickers on it (apparantly to identify the type of material inside). It also included some International Shipping Documentation (not sure if that was there before the regulations).

    When I purchased last year, they sent in the same heavy black plastic bag, then the bottle was packed ever so nicely in a very large black box.

    I guess the stickers are new. Now that they are using Fedex, shipping is 58.00 to the US . When I purchased the last time, they had free worldwide shipping, so I guess we won't see that again.

    Saw this yesterday at my local fragrance shop; went back and bought it today:







    Chanel for Men Spray Cologne. No cap, no box. From what I've gathered here, this is the vintage Chanel Pour Monsieur, which I've been hunting for months now.

    NOTE: I have an original vintage mini and compared it to the juice I bought today.
    Verdict: No major change - stills smells great!

    Trumper Sandalwood, not entirely sure about this one yet, frankly, or if I'd agree that it can compete with Egoiste in any shape or form as some reviewers seem to suggest, and Diptyque L'Ombre Dans L'Eau.

    Basala by Shiseido,


    Basala an olfactory experience,

    An aromatic blend of lavender, bergamot enhanced by Artemisia and Basel (the lavender remains throughout the entire composition)
    Fir, cinnamon, caraway, carnation and jasmine are masterfully mingled, setting an introspective mood, which are sweetened by coconut, and real oakmoss (by the time Basala was conceived the strict IFRA regulations were not yet implemented, real oakmoss adds depth into a concoction, unfortunately at his point in time there are no aroma-chemical able to match the rich qualities of real oakmoss), the leather accord, amber accord and musk are underscored by hints of patchouli, and cedar wood, finishing this olfactory extravaganza.





    Basala,

    A Self-discovery Journey: East meets West
    Your vessel: Basala
    Destination:Unknown
    Departure Harbor: Caldey Island

    Basala, The Scarlet Vessel is about to departure, this is a self discovery journey, ahead of us, open oceans.
    Our journey starts, the robust and fresh Northern Atlantic winds, start to propel us, soon we will be sailing along the formidable African cost, from the window of our cabin, we gaze at grandiosity of the ocean, the omnipotency of the Atlantic Ocean touches us.
    In the middle of our journey, our vessel starts to experience the dark forces of nature, we have reached the point where the Atlantic ocean meets the Indian Ocean, the waters are turbulent.
    We found ourselves at the mercy of the majestic and powerful currents, a dark aura envelops our vessel, we retract into ourselves, we feel small and vulnerable.
    Suddenly the Ocean becomes gentle once again and our fortune changes.
    The skies open up, the sun starts to warm up our souls.
    We feel an atmosphere of cohesion, connection takes place, we and the elements are one, We are One!
    We are about to reach our final destination, we can already feel the exoticism of the new land, mysticism is in the air...
    Our journey ends, we have arrived at our destination, it is now full circle, East meets West.

    I wanted a tobacco scent so I went cheap and got me Michael Kors for Men and it arrived today.

    It's much nicer than I thought it would be.

    I've got three from the line so far, but not Lavender Amber. At least not yet. I was returning Gucci Pour Homme II (one of the benefits of buying from Bloomingdale's) and I wanted something else with that tea vibe. I really enjoyed Earl Grey and Cucumber when I tried it before so I veered in that direction. I have to say though, Jo Malone Vetyver is a really interesting scent, and there's another ' cologne intense' line that's worth trying, some really nice fragrances there. Unfortunately, I think the problem is that you get what you pay for. These do not last that long and don't have great projection, but the asking price is below that of Creed/Bond/Tom Ford, etc., so, again, I think you get what you pay for with these.

    I agree, JM Vetiver is nice and I use to wear it. It always smells great and works for any situation. I need to get some more.
