    Today pulled the trigger on an attar: Cuir et Bois, and a pure oud: Cantik Candan both from Agar Aura. Taha is creating and sourcing oud oils that are as good as it gets for this moment in time, imo.

    Atelier vanilla intense- my wife was considering that and SL Vanilla but went VI. Really nice vanilla with a little jasmine.

    Yup. Wearing it today. Absolutely loves it. Unfortunately even with 7 sprays it dies after about a few hours. But are those few hours heavenly.

    Sadly, the Black by CdG I bought a week before, which I'm trying to really fall back in love with, isn't working with my skin chemistry. I really wished I tested it on skin before I bought it. On paper, it's smokey goodness. On my skin, the liquorice note turns into nasty curry.

    Same here. Black is much more challenging after several wearings. I get a strong tea-tree sort of smell that is mildly headach-inducing. I think it was rynegne who described it as the smell of T/Gel Dandruff Shampoo by Neutrogena. Spot on!

    I got a little excited by what looked like a cheap ebay price (my brain had the MSRP of Chopard, not the actual selling price) and bid on it last week. It arrive in the mail today and I am pleasantly surprised based on the price, though it goes quite cedar not long into the drydown.

    It's actually kind of cathartic...I'm preparing a short list of contenders and really enjoying my current wardrobe, which I have discovered is plenty! I am finally wearing my true faves more frequently and not trying to squeeze in new so-so purchases. This may be quite healthy for me in the long run.

    LuckyScent - the only place I know of that carries this in the US (or at least I've never seen it sold anywhere else). It was a limited production and has been discontinued already, so if you want to grab a bottle - do it while they still have some in stock.
