    April 21:

    Issey Miyake L'Eau D'Issey pour homme Summer edition 2015
    (Same smell and ingredients as last two years and to me it smells, in the drydown, like a weaker version of the brilliant 2009/2010 summer edition versions but with kiwi added in the opening. Lack of inspiration!

    Cologne Indelebile by Frederic Malle - Nice, clean and Niroli based fragrance. In fact I liked it more than TF Niroli because of its citrus and "clear" attribute. Feels refreshed and clean.

    April 22, 2015 - Reflection Man by Amouage - Sweet, powdery. At the start, it reminds me a little bit of naphtalene.

    Lutens Santal majuscule
    Quasi-blind buy prompted by my compulsion for every santal old or new. Not impress but not totally surprised. As with most Lutens, I get the feeling that I would get diabetes wearing this. Might trot it out a couple of times a year. Its better than Lutens Mysore, which is so sticky it evokes a vat of honey witn caramel and duck fat.

    Little Italy by Bond 9. It should be light and refreshing. It's supposedly nothing but citrus and musk. Unfortunately it dries down into a thick potent cilantro that made me physically ill. I cannot stand cilantro in food, and apparently I cannot handle it in fragrances either. Needless to say this is a scrubber for me.

    Today was also my first time with a full wearing of Wall Street also by Bond 9. I had sampled this before from a Bon Bon, I actually enjoyed it. Unfortunately after a full wearing from the bottle today, I got the wet dog accord that others have described. While I tolerated this one more than Little Italy, it was also a scrubber, and they will both be exchanged for something else.

    Not a good fragrance day!

    34 Boulevard Saint Germain Eau de Toilette by Diptyque - A superb piece of art. I found it very clean and well blended, sophisticated fragrance. IMHO, it is another master piece from Diptyque which is not very commonly known (I think!). I can smell a fresh vibe of blackcurrant and some of fig notes with some spices and woods.

    Tried a bit of Kouros (on a strip) the other day, just out of curiosity. My last experience with it must be nearly ten years ago. What astounded me was that I got zero urinal cake or any other skanky notes. It was just a nice musky floral - one that I will need to skin test soon.

    Wode Eau de Parfum by Boudicca - A good smell of woods, green and spicy musk with dark expression of leather. Well blended and complex.

    Quite a list after a trip to London

    A few Clive Christians
    A few Roja Dove
    A few Amouage
    A few Frederic Malle
    A few Bond No 9
    A few Ormonde Jayne
    Tauer Incense Extreme
    Heeley Cardinal
    Diptyque Tam Dao
    Quite a few others I can't recall at present.

    Some very nice fragrances, but nothing that wowed me enough to pay the prices being charged in almost every case. Favourites were probably Amouage Jubilation, Tam Dao, Ormonde Jayne Black Gold and Malle French Lover. The OJ is way out of my price range, the others I am considering and may buy eventually, especially if the price is good.

    Valentino Uomo Nero. Same bottle as Valentino Uomo, but matte black. Smells similar, but more subdued, less sweetness. Wasn't excited.

    Tam Dao by Diptyque - An awesome smell of sandalwoods. Very well blended in fact.
    Benjoin 19 (Moscow) by Le Labo - amber based musk but I wasn't much excited. may be not of my type.

    I think theyre definitely worth a sniff! Myrrhe Imperiale is my favorite so far but I also really enjoyed Encens Satin and Cuir Noir (although the latter had terrible performance issues on me ) If only they weren't so expensive x.x

    Atelier Cologne Vetiver Fatal - Very well blended vetiver based fragrance. Easily can be said as one of the top frags from Atelier house.

    Profumum Acqua Viva - beautiful fresh lemons. I do wonder though if Profumum have watered down their offerings.

    Hermes Cuir d'Ange - too gentle for a leather, at least for me. Much prefer Chanel Cuir de Russie.

    Dior Privée Bois d'Argent. Gorgeous, is this what Dior Home should have been.

    Dior Privée Cologne Royale.

    Ambre Precieux Eau de Toilette by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier - It was spicy and bit of herbs in the beginning the, after some time, it was a perfect creamy, sweet, and appealing amber. Liked it much. May be a buy soon.

    Givenchy Very Irresistible. Bought because it's rare and discontinued. Smells like L'Ideal Guerlain minus almonds, plus mint and tons of coffee. Awesome fragrance, actually.
