    Reminiscence Patchouli

    Expectations, even if they're high, were exceeded.
    I didn't expect to like a patchouli-forward perfume.
    Very good!

    I don't get that dark chocolate. Maybe in the first 5 minute, a boozy sort of earthy chocolate. Maybe.

    Quality bottle, sprayer and cap (with "click")(maybe a little bit too tight).

    A day late but Zoologist Sloth. Really enjoyable, so much so I ordered a second 11 ml already. Full bottle worthy but they aren't available yet.

    Xerjoff 40 Knots- Not what I thought, smells like ambre nuit no rose & add salt. This projects more for me but prefer Ambre Nuit.

    Xerjoff Alexandria II - no for me

    Frassai Teisenddu -- maybe i'll revisit if loved gourmands more. .

    A Sample of Black Aoud. I must know if it is similar to Perfume Calligraphy.

    sample of Juriah by Sultan Pasha - potent and beautiful.

    It doesn't appear to be in the directory on this site.

    Neroli Woods proper full wear.
    Nice, smooth easy going, pretty tight.
    Not as "effervescent" as my other reference Ferrari Bright Neroli. No prickly tang as per Mugler/4711.
    Quite subtle

    [oops, meant to post in the "WOW" thread!]

    Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Cuba

    It's wonderful. Think Eau d'Hermes (similar dirty-spiced leathery powder backbone), but brighter, and with tobacco and honey added.

    Zoologist Bee. I get the mimosa and "honey" accord. The musk helps me imagine that I'm smelling bee parts as well. Very strong.

    Fragrance du Bois New York Intense. Very smooth, no sharp edges. A future buy for me, but will have to try others in the line as well.


    Edit: NY Intense is in the same vein as Oud for Greatness as it dries down

    Oud for Greatness. OMFG, I love this. Smells gourmand to me. FB worthy even at these eye-watering prices.

    A lab on fire - California snow - delicate, floralish, pleasant, a bit femme. I like it but it seems faint. Though I keep getting whiffs of it now and then long after I thought it had faded out, which makes it interesting to me.

    I got a good price on a collection of mostly niche ~ 2 ml samples from a seller on eBay. I'm excited to try everything, but today I went with 10 a.m. Flirt by KIERIN NYC. As per their marketing, it really is reminiscent of crisp grasses and a refreshing breeze over the New York cityscape. I am really enjoying this one, and for a niche bottle under $100, this deserves some more attention.

    Nicolai— Baikal Leather Intense

    Got a bottle of Berceuse Allegretto 7.2 for my birthday. Extremely happy with that. Used the Nicolai promo code at Luckyscent and was expecting New York Intense, which I love. They must’ve run out so I got 15ml of Baikal Leather Intense. It’s kind of modern fougere territory but it’s very light and generic. Not at all what I expect from this house. Definitely not the kind of Russian Leather scent one might expect from the name.

    It’s actually very pleasant but awfully nondescript. It’s not entirely removed from the world of Rive Gauche but with the most distinctive bits scooped out and replaced with things that should give it a more distinctive point of view(yuzu, pepper) but instead make little impression.

    Is it great? And did you get to try the new Bat by the same perfumer?

    Akro Awake. Photo-realistic sweetened coffee smell. Not sure it smells like perfume. It really has to strike a balance for me between smelling like coffee and smelling like perfume. Somehow, Intoxicated stays in the perfume side for me while this doesn't. Obviously, personal preference and someone else might have the opposite experience.

    Prissana Ma Nishtana. Pretty heavy incense right from the beginning, similar to the incense from Casbah. Will be passing on this one as well.

    CK Escape:
    S'alright. Not sure my nose is experienced enough with fresh/caloney .
    This and stuff like Polo Blue, Lanvin Oxygen, L'eau Bleue Issey all kinda' smell the same to me at this point in time. Nothing wrong with 'em, rather the fault is with my nose (as often is with things I don't yet know - I am deficient in understanding rather than 'them/it' being wrong/bad etc. Lesson over!!!)

    Tobacco Rose - Papillon Perfumery - received a sample of this with my most recent Lucky Scent order and absolutely love it. My Wife said it was too feminine for a guy to wear, but I couldn't stop smelling where I had dabbed it.

    Amber Cologne - Bortnikoff - This was a floral bomb with citrus peel notes, again I couldn't stop smelling my hand. Very interesting and I must say delightful.
