    Lightbulb I want to say "wooow!!!" again for a scent.

    Do you know those great scents you smell and you will never be apart from them anymore? Those scents that even if we don't smell them for years, they are still there clear in our memory? For me: m7 and rive gauche do that with excellence. What scents gives you that wowww effect?

    Since every nose is different (the molecules that pre-exist in your nose will determine what you actually smell when you smell a fragrance) your best bet is to SAMPLE LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW!!!

    One of my biggest WOW experiences lately is also my latest acquisition:

    ARSO by Profumum Roma.

    To me it is the perfect scent for this time of the year (winter). Woody, smokey and with a hint of sweetness that rounds things off a bit.

    Gengis Khan is the most recent one. From first sniff to the dry down it is just awesome.

    Boucheron Japhur EDP is the one that captivated me the most over time. Great fragrance and not to expensive.

    BLACK AFGANO

    Its funny but there are times when I would be rocking some fragrance during the day in the office, say some Creed or a DHi, and then suddenly I would think to myself: "Man, I wanna smell Black Afgano right this minute..." Does not happen with any other scent I own, so that kinda narrows it down...

    Recently acquired - a big wow for me - the new trilogy of scents by L'Artisan Parfumeur and the new quartet of scents by Parfums de Marly.

    ALL 5 originals from nu_be. Hard to pick a favorite.

    +1 on the new Parfums de Marly releases (well, 3 of the 4 were "wow" for me)


    And gotta give love to my SotD - Creed Royal English Leather. One of my all time favorites, but just don't seem to wear it often enough.

    Both Jubilation XXV and Memoir Man still wow me in their first moments. Rich and tremendous. Route du Vetiver really grabbed me, hitting a particular accord I felt I'd always wanted but had never smelled until then. And the other day I wore Coromandel again and for the first time the frankincense came out cleanly and clearly, and I appreciated the composition anew, and was decidedly wowed.

    I have been wearing Dsquared's Potion Royal Black for the past few days and it has impressed me greatly, this one's really good.

    On first application you get a lovely enchanting smoky jammy rose with incense. As it dries down out of this you can smell a sweet peppery pimento around the edges of the main rose & incense. This is followed by notes of leather, oud, tobacco and woods which support the main rose & incense star of the show accord.

    I get several hours in longevity but it does reign itself in after three to four hours and then stays close to you.

    All in all the fragrance gives off a very classy romantic vibe and I have had quite a few compliments already at work. This scent with its dark mysterious romantic vibe is perfect imo for evening's out ,dates etc.

    A big thumbs up from me and a new gem of a fragrance!
