    L'Artisan Parfumeur - Traversée du Bosphore :: I was smelling some sweet leather, saffron, and some musky powdered vibes.... initially, like a medicine to my nose, but bearable. After some dry down, it was unique, gourmand and different. Not bad. May be a buy.

    Just got my Dior Homme Parfum that I got for a very good price in today. Wow! Just Wow! This is my new favorite of the Line and has already, easily entered into my top 5 greatest frags of all time. I mean WOW!!! I'm speechless! I'm definitely picking up a coffee note in here. That's strange I have not seen that mentioned. Anyone else get that vibe? It's a luscious dark roast, kind of like what I smell in LF-Baristas or CD-Eau Noire.
    Can't wait till winter arrives. Wish it was a 10 year winter... like in the north ! ...Get it? Sorry, been watchin too much tely.

    Smelled Clive Christian C for Men and Clive Christian X for men for the first time last night. Was not impressed by either of them, but if I had to choose one it'd be X. C was a bit on the offensively rank side to me!
    I buy fragrances that match my personality. I want to smell like I'm about to embark on an exciting adventure in parts unknown.

    Gengis Khan - It is a new formulation I believe, and I believe also that I love it. Thanks to hednic to introduce this beauty and I appreciate it. No doubt it is now in my "to buy" list.
    MDM Black - Just another lovely fragrance. It is spicy and citrusy to my nose, kinda a common vibe but after some time, it becomes a quality on my skin. I was smelling like a rich person . Love it at second place after Gengis Khan from this house. added to "To Buy" list.

    I've been playing around with various Old Spice flankers over the past few days. Today I sampled Bearglove, and it's really rather nice!

    Verdict: today I don't. It's very bright and light but I feel like it's going to be better when it's cold. Or maybe I just don't like it It's a very confused fragrance, never smelled anything quite like it.

    If you are not deciding you like it or not...one thing is sure....you are not "un-comfort" with that fragrance.

    No, it's definitely more wearable than I expected; I don't really like lavender as a rule (I prefer its more sophisticated sister, rosemary) so I was pleasantly surprised by it.

    Silver Mountain Water. It's shrill at first, but I love the drydown. Only problem is that at 3 sprays fromy decant bottle, it lasts 2 hours before becoming almost a skin scent. It might just be fatigue though.

    Encre Noire Sport. It's just Encre Noire, really. I don't get any bright Grey Vetiver vibe from it at all, it literally just smells like the original to me but is more expensive and has a stupid name

    Cio Cio San by Parfums MDCI - very femme but pleasant vibes, most likely the fruit-ish gourmet fragrance with main notes of citrus. A perfect and nice smelling femme fragrance.
    Putain Des Palaces by Etat Libre d’Orange - amber based nice smell, rose and bit deeper on femme side but good.
    Savile by Keiko Mecheri - first impression was of sweetish dark fragrance. I was smelling...like vanilla and woods, a nice smell, unique and clean.

    Opus I - Library Collection :: First impression was....it was floral and feminine, but after some time, it was all powdery and spices but in very smooth and pleasant way. Overall, a complex and unique fragrance. It is quite long lasting.

    GIT: Blind buy (10ml decant). Nice. Smells like someone spilled Cool Water in a forest.

    L'instant de Guerlain pour homme: Blind buy (full bottle for 39€). The first time I smell anise and don't want to throw up. Surprisingly well constructed.

    Amouage Epic Man. Wow, absolutely love this.

    Why do so many of the ones I'm liking the most of late seem to be so expensive!

    Opus VIII - Library Collection :: Very quality fragrance in fact....good vibes of "barber shop" with some citrus and jasmine. Overall, a sophisticated fragrance.

    Zegna Italian Bergamot, Dior Homme Cologne and Wood, Sage and Sea Salt (I walked through a Nordstrom to get to a meeting). Underwhelmed on all three accounts although with a gun to my head I might buy the Zegna.
