    My latest "wow" fragrance that I just sampled earlier today is Prada's Luna Rossa. Very impressed! I went back and got a sample which I've been wearing tonight, and this may be the mint fragrance I've been searching for. Definitely a future purchase for me.

    Nothing has wowed me recently. The most interesting things I've sniffed lately were by Amouage - Opus VII, Tribute, Homage, and other attars.

    I thought Sahara Noir was pretty good based on a quick sniff.

The citrus and the nutmeg combine for a very nice fragrance that had wonderful longevity on my skin.

    One more that impressed me recently: Terryfic Oud by Terry de Gunzburg.

    I was wowed recently by MFK Oud Cashmere Mood. A well balanced oud fragrance that has the intensity needed to bring alive and enhance the oud note which is kind of shy in character but mesmerizing in effect. All of the other oud fragrances I've tried really focus on complimentary notes whereas this one seems to build totally around oud.

    I have been moderately wowed by the new Atelier Cologne Sous le toit de Paris. This is a fresh take on traditional violet and leather notes that is refreshing and very satisfying. I like it more than I expected.

    Santa Maria Novella Nostalgia. The opening is a giant hit of everything it promises to be: a vintage roadster with sunbaked rubber tires, wrinkled and crazed leather seats, and gasoline stains around the fill spout. The patina of good tobacco, and more aged rubber ... Whoah. Styrax and birchtar dreams.

    But that's so fleeting! It dries down to a dull, vanillic indistinct thing that says, "this is a men's fragrance." Sigh. :s

    I was moderately-plus wowed on Sous le Toit — hehehe. Not slam-wowed or even sham-wowed, but definitely more than moderately wowed. It's just damned attractive, fun and wearable. And the sillage is enchanting.

    Comme des Garcons Black EDT - A new release from CDG that's gone back to the "old school" roots. Definitely worth a sniff for any fan of Comme des Garcons, or fragrances that have tar qualities. This one has a brash top that contains birch tar, pepper, woods and incense that will blow your mind!

    I had today a chance to smell and old version of Armani Eau Pour Homme when visiting my childhood friend. That stuff was something so good that it feels unreal! How come i have missed such a masterpiece? I remember trying it in the 80's but it didn't impress back then - now it did!!!

    This is coming to me in a sample vial, as well as CdG Play Black, just for a fun comparison.

    Eau Sauvage Parfum

    I was with a sales rep at Sephora, along with 2 other staff trying to help me find something, I asked, what is this? they sprayed it on a tester and gave it to me, my reaction must have been PRICELESS as one of the staff immediately had to smell it for themselves.

    Pretty special stuff. Potent, too. Two sprays and you're set. Might wear it this week some time.

    Enchanted Forest wow'd me recently from the sample i got, enough to warrant a full bottle methinks.

    Montale's Chypre Vanille was my test drive today. I quite like it as well. The vanilla is not sweet, its just lovely, quite dry and inviting, considering a full of this as well.

    The frag budget has been blown for this month on clothes and dvds though :|
