    A favorite Creed salesman called recently to let me know that a green flacon of Angelique Encens was available. I couldn't resist the thought of being able to wear this one with reckless abandon for years to come. I was delighted to find that the flacon arrived without any leakage whatsoever. Angelique Encens is a masterpiece and seems to age very well. Martin

    Tea for Two??? I thought this was discontinued. I see it's available only in European countries but is out of stock in the US That's crazy.

    A lot of silly people run the perfume industry... I mean, Gucci disco's Gucci pour homme I and now II, Dior reformulates everything, so does YSL now, and even everybody's favorite fragrance uncle, Serge Lutens, goes back and forth with the limited distribution of his fragrances. Drama and intrigue everywhere... Just look at the Montale controversy

    Right now, the ones I trust the most, are the mad people at Comme des GarÁons There is not really much reform. chatter about them, and even though they make some quirky fragrances, which do not follow the mainstream trends, they have disco'ed not much more than a handful of fragrances, and I think most were just limited edition bottles

    A few days ago, I bought 24 Gold by Scentstory for a longtime friend of mine from FragranceX. I ordered it and it came in the mail earlier in the week, but I didn't want to post about it in this thread until I actually gave it to my friend.

    My reasoning for buying it was:
    1. He's a huge fan of the TV show 24, right down to owning a Jack Bauer T-shirt
    2. I was looking for a gateway cologne for him to discover fragrance (he already liked the smell of certain other personal care products)
    3. I thought that combining the subjects of one of his favorite TV shows and cologne would be a good mix for him to enter the fragrant realm
    4. 24 Gold has received excellent reviews here on Basenotes


    After an early birthday dinner at Applebee's (one of his favorite restaurant chains) tonight, he decided to give it two spritzes. His initial thoughts on 24 Gold? "I really like this." Looks like we may be having a new fraghead in training.

    Oh, and I took a spritz of it as well. Pretty darn good stuff.
    Top 5 for Late Summer:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Aventus - Creed
    3) Flower of Immortality - By Kilian
    4) L'Humaniste - Frapin
    5) Millesime Imperial - Creed

    My mission statement: "I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone."

    Doir Leather Oud from the Dior Boutique in NYC. I've also made future plans to get my hands on Oud Ispahan and Bois D'Argent (which for whatever reason the SA was trying pretty hard to push me towards). Might be the best fragrance I've ever smell, no exaggeration.

    Also ordered YSL M7 Oud Absolu after finally getting to sample it at Bergdorf (But not wanting to pay 40% there more than I would on amazon). I was thoroughly impressed, the Oud is the main note for sure but it's so well blended with everything else that it feels pretty easy to wear.

    Finally got my hands on what appears to be the last bottle of Body Kouros in NYC yesterday. Side-note, but I've never seen this anywhere, not at any of the department stores, including Bergdorf, Barney's or Saks. Lord and Taylor is the only one I've seen that carried Kouros, but they didn't have Body (although every kitschy perfume store run by a middle eastern guy carries Kouros). Finally walked into yet another one of the aforementioned kitschy store, and viola! the last bottle of Body Kouros was sitting there. From what I've gathered this stuff was repackaged last year (but not reformulated) but I've never seen the repackaging online, or in any U.S. store. The salesman at the place I got it assured me it was discontinued, and I know that's usually a tactic used to justify why something isn't in stock/is in low stock, but considering how I've never seen it, is what he said true? Has Body Kouros been discontinued in the U.S. and was I just really lucky?
    Current Top 10:
    1. Leather Oud- Dior
    2. Black Aoud- Montale
    3. M7 Oud Absolu- YSL (I really REALLY like oud)
    4. Green Irish Tweed- Creed
    5. Cuir de Russie- Chanel
    6. Straight to Heaven- By Kilian
    7. Aventus- Creed
    8. Pure Havane- Theirry Mugler
    9. Shalimar EdP- Guerlain
    10.Body Kouros- YSL
