    Simply amazed how good One Man Show by Bogart (unexpectedly inexpensive and not even knowing nor able to determine whether it is actually the vintage or the current version of this) can be such an accomplished powerhouse chypre scent with hints of citrus, floral and/or herbal notes of surprising depth, nuance and performance.
    Try also (vtg preferred) Krizia Uomo; imo a better version, so to speak, of Bogart OMS!
    Sure you'll like it (if not already )

    Menta y Menta - might be my favorite mint scent so far.

    Yeah, you won't be disappointed with Grand Soir. I finally picked up a full bottle myself this year. I need a full bottle of LADDM as well!

    I feel the same way about not feeling comfortable wearing in public, but love wearing it around the house. I only have a sample (actually gone now), and that's the exact reason I haven't opted for a full bottle.

    Been a few months since my last wearing of Lyric. For a non-rose lover, I love this!

    Vilhelm Parfumerie Stockholm 1978 very modern take on barbershop scent. Big fam of Jerome Epinette perfume work with this line. I am thoroughly engaged by this one like many of Vilhelm perfumes. I give this one top marks along with Dear Polly, Morning Chess, Black Citrus and The Oud Affair.

    Actually found a decent price on Amazon and snagged Grand Soir. I have had my eyes on LdDM forever but they seem to be only 1.7 ml for such a steep price tag.

    Most Sultan Pasha Attars wow me. Yesterday his Aurum d Ankhor was a holy grail experience, absolutely stunning in it's complexity and quality. And today his new Juriah attar which has not been released yet is so intoxicating with the finest Taif Rose and Hindi Oud. After experiencing all these luxurious fragrances from Sultan Pasha I don't know how I can go back to wearing normal designer/niche scents. It will be like getting used to lobster and champagne, steak etc and then going back to eating beans on toast to use a analogy.
    "There's No School Like The Old School."

    My Top Five

    1. Aurum d Angkhor By Sultan Pasha
    2. Fougere Noire By Sultan Pasha
    3. L' Heure d' Or By Sultan Pasha
    4. Encens Chypre By Sultan Pasha
    5. Equilibre By Sultan Pasha
