    Just sprayed it on the back of my hand. Will wear it later today as my SOTE and will have a better take. For now I can say It's lemony, a little sweet and not tangy maybe due to the influence of the floral heart. Still haven't figured out what the dry down smells like. I find it pleasant. Have to see how long it lasts.

    14 April 2015 - Jarling, from a sample pass kindly organized by cacio.
    Smells like mentholated Play-Doh. The JAR perfumes are fascinating, but this is not one I could wear ...

    Kouros - I was disappointed. I was hoping for a sweaty, body odor-like fragrance. Instead, I got an animal musky urinal-cake floral fragrance.
    Never leave the house without six sprays.

    My Top 5:
    1. Xeryus Rouge (vintage)
    2. Womanity
    3. Paris Hilton for Men
    4. Perry Ellis M for Men
    5. Alien Absolue

    Anima Dulcis by Arquiste: Reminded me a lot of Rochas Femme, and then a really boring drydown.

    Boutonniere by Arquiste: Good gardenia that lasts the life of the fragrance but gets a bit plasticky at one point.

    Satuday, April 11 - Lalique Encre Noire

    What a great vetiver. I love it's minimalistic approach, just a touch of smoke and woods, no top notes to speak of. Lovely, discrete, and masculine.

    For a patchouli fragrance, it is good, but I just don't think I would ever wear it.

    Monday 4-13-2015 Neroli Portofino. I'm glad it was just 25ml decant because I think it's a little redundant to buy this if you already have Original Vetiver. They smell very similar to my nose.

    AMPUTATE YOUR NOSE, stat!!! [emoji12]

    These two are quite different, to my nose... Yes, both are great on hot summer days, but they are vastly different compositions.

    Lol. I sprayed them on last night and was amazed at how similar they smell. I didn't even think about it until about an hour after I put NP on. I kept thinking, "man, I have something that smells exactly like this" but I couldn't put my finger on it until I read about the Mugler comparisons and since Mugler and OS are commonly compared, I decided to spray it on. The openings are different but man, that dry down....I dunno, I'll give it another shot.

    As far as sprayed on... Musc Ravageur - Bottle arrived today. Yep, I blind buy! I really like this one!

    Black Afgano - From a sample. It maybe doesn't seem to be as 'abstract'/'strange'/'unusual' as I was expecting or whatever. I like it, .

    Got samples of Portrait of a Lady, Nio, Lovely Day, Duro and Black Afgano for 'free' with the order.

    The Nio maybe leaked before it got to me; I smelled it without spraying it? . Though, I'll probably spray it on me eventually.

    I'm also waiting on an order for Portrait of a Lady and Black Afgano (and probably 'free' samples! ).
