    jujy, the bottle of Americana Rust is in good company I see!

    My first purchase from AbdesSalaam Attar, really looking forward to it. This is my first and last purchase in a while as I'm trying to put as much as I can towards my down payment towards a home! Will share my thoughts once it arrives.

    From a lovely split. I've been dying to get my hands on Liu and this is a small amount of Vol de Nuit Parfum in lieu of tons.

    I am so bad. Bois des Îles perfume and Coromandel arrived today.

    It's more fun to be bad, so there is that.

    Two more from our friend and fellow basenotes member, rynegne:

    Engin and SantL from Madhat Scents. These are my second and third Madhat scents, the first being American Rust, to which Engin bears a resemblance. Another basenotes member, noideawhatimsaying also compared these two, and since I can't improve on his descriptions I will include them, to wit:

    Americana Rust - Imagine yourself riding besides a tobacco field in the middle of rural North Carolina. It's a beautiful day in the Fall, nearing dusk, and you're needing a quick rest. As you pull over to the side of the road, you notice an old, brownish-red barn that looks like its seen many riders in its days. Its history is alluring, and you want to rest your tired eyes within it. Crossing to the barn, you lay down. The air is filled with the smell of both wood and the of the fields which surround it. There is nothing but the barn and crop, and its calm strength forms protection around you. It's American in its purest sense, and you're the cowboy. This is Americana Rust. Though, "simple" in ingredients, its the epitome of a lone rider on an open road.

    Engin - Take the tobacco field in Americana Rust, light a fire, and let the flames engulf the barn. The sense of calm as you laid within the old barn changed into urgency. The once beautiful barn is burning to the ground with the smell of mesquite smoke emanating from it. The cowboy, once passive, walks away from the danger. This man has seen things, and knows that the sight of this land burning is an image that won't go away. That's the impression Engin leaves on you, a sense of alluring danger and bold uniqueness.
    I recommend SantL highly to anyone curious about the Mysore sandalwood mystique. While there are cinnamon and citrus notes, woods highlight the scent, and not just the sandalwood. In fact, if there is a uniting note in rynegene's creations, I would have to say it is wood,and the wood tends to star rather than playing a supporting role. Bravo, Ryan!

    Thanks jujy!!! I'm glad you're enjoying your MadHat perfumes. I do use cedar in a lot of my fragrances I absolutely love woody notes which is reflected in my scents.

    rynegne, aka Ryan,

    I can understand the fascination with wood. I used to sniff at the inside of my double bass from time to time, and I love the smeel of pencil shavings. Ah! and now I realize your scents are honing in on my dream scent: pencil shavings, wet cigar and bass rosin.

    I bought MadHat's SantL as well. I am looking forward to trying it after all the good buzz here. I admire creativity in any form, especially wearable forms!

    Thanks all for the support, I really appreciate it! SantL is my favorite creation thus far. I spared no expenses in sourcing the Mysore for this. I felt everyone that loves woody notes should have the chance to try Mysore Sandalwood outside of paying hundreds of dollars for discontinued fragrances.

    Ryan, all this talk about your fragrances, especially the tobacco and sandalwood centered ones, has me salivating over here......is there any way for me to get my hands on them, considering I'm in Eastern Europe? Or am I doomed to experience them vicariously through the words of lucky American BN friends?

    After the bottle of Miss Dior vintage parfum I've been having a rather tough month, which can be seen by the splurge I've had this month:

    a Shalimar Parfum Initial set including body lotion (because I know it's being discontinued so I'd better pick it up while I can)
    50ml of Weil Antilope EdP
    a Dior miniatures set, which includes more Miss Dior, Poison, Fahrenheit, Eau Sauvage and Dune
    7.5ml of Fidji parfum
    Fragonard Patchouli EdT
    and a backup bottle of vintage Givenchy Gentleman, picked up for a song.

    I think I'd better not repeat this month too often.

    My birthday soon so the wife gave me the green light to order DH and TDH.
    Summer is coming so particularly looking forward to giving the TDH a run.

    I'll be going to test this later today, as I've never really given it a chance. I've heard mixed things though, so I'm hoping for the best.

    Antilope is a go-to for me. What vintage? I have what look to be 50s or 60s and a 70s. A perfect floral aldehyde with some clary sage, and the slightest bit of civet. I call the drydown "lotiony".
