    Funny! I find them both nice but totally different as well.

    April 15

    Genghis Khan - 1st wear of this blind buy. Pleasing patchouli, hints of dark chocklate sweets filled with alhocol soaked cherrys in the opening. Gives Mazzolari Lui kinda vibe to me. but in a much more refined manner and without the manure

    Phoenicia Realoud Feral! I have wanted this now unavailable scent for a while and when a basenoter had one for sale, I jumped at the chance.

    Today 19Apr2015
    The Different Company - Oud Shamash : Its a bit dark and obviously, "oud-ish" fragrance. I can smell the spices also and a bit of woody herbal type of vibe. Like it.

    Thierry Mugler - A*Men Ultra Zest: Very nice. Differs nicely from ICE*Men, and is a better fresh version of the A*Men theme. Doubt I'll be buying it though.
    Creed - Green Irish Tweed: I have actually found a Creed that I like. This very good. I get the association with Cool Water, but it also reminds me of another fresh fragrance.. Perhaps Boucheron Pour Homme? I am a bit unsure right now, but I will probably be seeking out a bottle at some point.

    But the star of what I tried yesterday was without a doubt Tom Ford Noir Extreme. Damn this is good. I get why this is critisized, as it is a semi-gourmand, but it has this quality and richness to it, that I like. It smells great. I have just ordered a bottle of this.

    Mazzolari Eau de Toilette - A good smelling sandalwood and "green" spices based fragrance. A masculine fragrance which stays longer on my skin. Very strong and sharp in the beginning, but dry down smells good.

    19th April

    Diaghilev for the first time. It opens with a brief blast of concentrated citrus notes and moves into a very animalic heavy civet and oakmoss accord. It stays like this for a long time, then it's slightly brightened by Ylang Ylang with some cloves joining the skanky party. The main star of the show is the civet and oakmoss and this never goes away.

    This scent is like a piece of art from over a hundred years ago in a museum which you can appreciate but would not think of taking it home and hanging it in your living room. Though those who love Leather Oud, Vintage Korous, Mouchoir de Monsieur and other heavy civet and oakmoss fragrance will find much to love here.

    Chanel Eau de Cologne
    April 19 - sampled and purchased yesterday
    April 20 - wore for the first time

    This stuff is beautiful and uplifting, the caveat is longevity is very brief with a capital V. This is the fragrance to apply directly after showering, enjoy it's glory while dressing, then apply your fragrance for the day.

    Leau De Leau Eau de Cologne by Diptyque - Not bad. Minty spices but green and orangish vibe. Some of the cinnamon and pepper can also be smelled. Overall, not a bad fragrance to my nose.

    Nest Moss and Mint. Tried it at marshalls, it was mostly just mint, oakmoss, and some apple but I liked it ok. Decided to pick up a bottle on the spot for hot weather (and because it was 11 dollars).

    Really like this one. Reminds me of AdP Essenza, clean citrusy soapy floral. I can already tell this will last all day easy, and probably all night too.

    Bentley Intense. When I first sprayed this on, my reaction was, "did I somehow get a decant of something from Amouage instead?" It's going to take me awhile to really analyze this one. Which is probably a good sign!

    I have a small sample of the vintage and a FB of the newer. The vintage stuff is stronger, and I find it more interesting because the notes are much more pronounced. The newer stuff is actually a bit more subtle and wearable, although I find it also more powdery. I like them both but that reputation of Antaeus as being "too much" is for me only really accurate for the old stuff. I have to apply it much more lightly haha.

    I tried Joop! Homme today for the first time, I'd heard very opposite reviews of this but I actually quite like it. It's not as sweet as I expected and I think it dries down quite pleasantly. It's an older bottle though.

    Acqua Di Gio Profumo.

    It's been so long since I wore the original that I'm not really sure how they compare. I liked it a lot, though. Just don't want to get a bottle and smell like average Joe.
