    Default Profumum Fumidus and Nobile 1942 Rudis

    I must confess that I've tried enough aud-heavy frags for now. Perhaps for a very long time. But I have to admit that two have, eventually, caught and held, my attention: Profumum Fumidus and Nobile 1942 Rudis. The order could be reversed because it was Rudis that helped me understand its much older cousin, Fumidus. And for that, I am grateful.
    The other day, Saturday, I wore one on each wrist. Setting aside the comparisons of "quality," or persistence, I wanted to note that while Fumidus comes on strong, it loses the longevity race by several laps.Normally, I wouldn't bother with this comment because I take longevity with a grain of salt. But this comparison seemed worth noting: Fumidus had vanished, even as a skin scent, before the end of the day. Today, Monday, I can still clearly smell vestiges of Rudis. For this, I am grateful--as unexpected as it is.

    I have tried the former and have found it to be quite pleasant.

    You are lucky because I remember Rudis not lasting that long at all.
