    Lubin's Eau de Cologne Ambre - a take on amber, vintage 1940's. Citric / amber / musky blend.

    Lubin's Eau de Cologne Chypre - Not many florals, rather a patch / oakmossy / soft musk blend.
    .
    Lanvin's Vetyver - citric/ skanky vetyver.

    Yardley's Bond Street- yet anoher floral leather, quite run-of-the-mill, vintage, 1950's.

    Lubin's, even though eaux, feel deep and complex. Dated, but who cares, they don't make them like that any more.

    I wonder if perfume making as fashion is marked by chemicals, a chemical-based fashion? Instead of shape-based fashion as in clothings, an abstract - based kind of fashion.

    Yes, there is such thing as a family air among them, albeit they are different scents. For instance, tobacco blends were dryer than present-day ones. In general (take Latour's and make it even dryer, acrid I'd say), I can't find much sweetness of the kind that is common among them nowadays.

    Again, I would love to replicate them with today's aromachemicals. How they would end up being like? IMHO, pretty decent blends, as per a project done by an independent perfumist who worked in a reformulated version of vintage Guerlain's Habit Rouge,

    She did not use expensive materials, but the end result was quite good. Unfortunately, those trying it found that the end - result was quite dated,

    So I guess all these end up users demanding blends blended according to present - date templates.

    Yes, call me a fogey.

    I went to the MF Kurkdjian website and ordered 4 samples: one APOM for women, two for men, and one Lumiere for men, and if I can't then one OUD for one of the two APOMS for men.

    It would have been $3.00 for a 0.7 vial at Luckyscent for each, and then shipping and if these samples are the 2.0 ml, I got a great deal. Was $19.00 shipped

    Sandalwood Mysore (oil diluted in alcohol) by La Via del Profumo



    You see. I'm a sandalwood freak. This one is linear but oh...what a note it is. So complex. Goes from woody to creamy to lactic to something like turpentine. I have to over apply it to get it to stick (and I spray my undershirt also, since the scent clings nicely to fabric). Also a perfect way to 'bolster' some of my sandalwood scents.

    Also got a sample of Tawaf, which I look forward to sampling.

    Dior Homme has been on my mind after sampling it a second time on a test strip, so I ordered a largish sample. Then Dior Homme sport caught my eye (well, the ginger component caught my eye) so I thought that I might as well give that a go too.

    Interesting. I've been tempted by this ever since I sampled Chillum with its wonderful sandalwood. I also had to apply Chillum heavily to get it to stick and really enjoy that sandalwood. I may need to copy your tactic of buying some of this to bolster other scents (and enjoy on its own).
