    Took the day to clean up my home, AC filters and finally the washroom where I used this scrubbin bubbles or whatever it's called. Initially, I used the grime cleaner (didn't look initially), it didn't spray out to my liking, so I got a different bottle, this was the bathroom cleaner. Somehow, after the I sprayed this'll over the area with the first sprays of the previous cleaner, it reminded me of Aventus (please - don't ask me the batch #).

    Anyways, was sort of annoyed, but after my shower, I brought out Macassar and oversprayed to remove any chemical thoughts off my nose and mind

    HA! My first sample of vintage came from you. I thought I hated it. I was sadly mistaken.

    So I'm into the drydown phase of Macassar and it's beautiful, reminded me of good old Mysore Sandalwood and I remembered vaguely about ebony wood in Macassar. So I looked up the directory and found Bavard's review of Macassar mentioning "reminds me of Egoiste". For me, it does remind me especially of the sandalwood of Egoiste...Great drydown compared to the start...

    Worn out and about to call it a night. Long day. Today’s wearings were/are, and in this order: Pasha de Cartier, Aramis Havana, and now, just before bed, Chanel No.19.

    What extracts have you tried for Vol de Nuit? I originally liked Mitsouko a lot more but when I tried a vintage extract of Vol de Nuit, it was so much better.

    I still need to get my hands on small decants of the earlier formulations. When were these bottles from?

    Honestly I'm not sure. They are pre barcode. I guess I should find out.

    I hear you about Cuir de Russie. It's so big and fluffy, but I love it anyway.
    I'm not really up on my leathers. It's a category that I don't seem to "get". I remember reading that birch tar is typically involved in the creation of a Russian leather scent, but I don't know why that would be. Maybe I need to smell some actual Russian leather?

    Lancôme and the Dior are pretty short-lived. I think I'll put one on each arm just for giggles and see how they play together. My sampling can wait for the afternoon.

    Update: I just tried this, and the two smell pretty great against each other, except that the Lancome is
    Ô-verpowering the Eau Sauvage.

    (Sorry/NotSorry)
    I'll bet the O de Lancome was good with Eau Sauvage. I wore Ô again this evening and am struck by how much it reminds me of Eau Sauvage. I thought the same thing when I wore Trophee the other day. Suddenly I'm seeing Eau Sauvage in everything.

    I totally get what you’re saying about leathers. As simple as the idea of leather is, there’s a wide gamut of takes on it consisting of fragrances that present small variances which result in huge differences to the nose.

    I’m not really qualified to speak on the history of Russian leathers, as my experience is overall very limited. There are a few pretty good articles on the web, and a couple good threads which can steer someone in the right direction, if they’re interested in Russian leathers. I would say that some old school Russian leather styled fragrances can be acquired for prices low enough to give a few a shot. And there are a couple threads here that give names to look into to see if you find something interesting, like this one http://www.basenotes.net/threads/370...-not-the-usual

    8ML Mitsouko 80's extract
    8ml Shalimar extract 70's
    2 ml Jicky extrait 60's?
    93ml Jicky EDT 1998
    2ML Vega Extrait unknown vintage
    4ml Pois de Senteurs extract unknown vintage
    Of these the Vol de Nuit in extract takes my heart with the Counterpoint presented by the honeyed Gslbanum.


    2ML of ancient Sous le Vent extract is on the way. Perhaps that could alter my preference.
    One of the Joy's of both Vol de Nuit and Mitsouko in extract is that the market is currently awash and therefore can be had for non-Unicorn asking price.

    I was the lucky beneficiary of some of that '68-72 VdN extrait and have a dab of it on right now. Gosh, it's BIG for a parfum. And that sweet galbanum is like catnip. Talk about your eyes rolling back into your skull!

    I'm not the biggest Guerlain fan, but this vintage VdN is downright Olympian.

    Give me multiple L’Heure Bleues followed by Mitsoukos, and I’m a happy gal for life. I would love me some Apres L’Ondee, but that, I’m afraid, is as rare as Unicorn poop. So’s Caron Farnesiana. I want extraits. Ergo, extraits = Unicorn poop.

    Only ONE makes my eyeballs roll back into my skull, and that fragrance is L’Heure Bleue. These others come close, very close, but aren’t quite there as this ONE.

    Yes, I was surprised when I started shopping what good prices there are on Guerlain extraits on the aftermarket. And they're plentiful, too.

    I'd been meaning to give Vol de Nuit another go. All the talk about it recently was the nudge I needed.
    This one is from 1987.

    After a couple of hours I started getting a fruit note in the extrait that I didn't remember detecting before. Kind of grape-y. In a good way.

    Interesting. I'll be looking for it. I only put on a tiny bit. Good thing, too, because I have a doctor's appointment in a few minutes.
