    Default Today, I'm particularly enjoying...

    I bet everyone here wears something every day. I do.

    But, some days, for whatever combination of reasons, I'm just really particularly enjoying a scent: more than usual.

    I'm not sure if that makes sense.

    For me, today, it's TF Costa Azzurra.

    I love how there are notes that stay distinct and also blend to form this glorious, spicy and complex accord that reminds me of bright light on the ocean, seaweed, oud, minerals, crystal, etc.

    That's all. I rarely start posts. Hope no one objects to this one. I think it's interesting how some days things really click.

    I wonder if anyone else can relate to this.

    I think moods affect how you enjoy a fragrance

    I'm enjoying Monsieur de Givenchy today (thanks to Jack Hunter) -- and this is partly due to thinking it had been discontinued and discovering it's available at Harrods

    It's great when a particular fragrance just clicks with you on a day and elevates your mood more than other days. It's been a very sunny day though cold where I am at and I've been enjoying Armani Eau Pour Homme.

    Glad your liking the Givenchy Kaern, I really like that scent. Enjoy

    Usually happens when I haven't wore a fragrance in a long time. You tend to appreciate it more.

    It makes perfect sense. I often experience the same thing.

    Thanks -- I went for the Vetyver also -- it was 'allegedly' the fragrance Hubert liked the best, so it was apt

    Thank you for starting this thread, Alex.

    Today I'm particularly enjoying Ostara, which I only ever wear for a couple of weeks at this time of the year. Yellow florals are not my style at all, but this scent tells me that spring is near. The sun is out, the daffodills are in bud, and even though it is still very cold, winter is ending at last.

    Each day (and especially each fragrance wearing day) the mood (s) can provide some of the most convincing reasons in favor of choosing one specific fragrance-personally having been quite in a mood for Azzaro pour Homme this rainy early spring evening, in spite of having worn this last only a few days ago and therefore the chances to choose this one as SOTE are quite likely

    Absolutely. Some days you just pick just the right one and it really clicks.

    I felt that the other day when I wore Tom Ford for Men. Just the right choice that day.

    Great thread, I experience the 'click' as well some days.

    I chuck it up to moods, atmosphere (weather, temp humidity etc), and what others are wearing.

    I have been exploring fragrance interactions and find that certain fragrances will enhance others (and vice versa). That's why it is dangerous to 'write-pff' a fragrance on the first sniff.

    Anyhoo today I am enjoying Burberry Brit Summer. Spicy and wood, yet fresh and formal.

    Yeah... I'm experiencing that today with Fahrenheit. For the first 8 hours or so today I was blown away by how much I was enjoying it - but - six more hours passed and I'm pretty much over it by this point. I do love Fahrenheit, but it wears like such a beast for me. 3 sprays give me HUGE projection and probably 18+ hours. And that's on a chilly spring day!

    It happens to me a lot. Even something I wear fairly regularly sometimes seems to really click on certain days and I enjoy it more than usual.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    New York Intense for me today. Almost regret seeing cold weather go away because this one wears so well in the cold.

    Creed Himalaya! I just got a full bottle of the stuff and it's grown into one of my favorite scents.

    Costa Azzurra is on the top of my must-try list. Looking forward to getting my nose on it

    It occasionally works in reverse for me as well --- some days I can be wearing a favorite and not really enjoy it as much as I expected to.

    I had this happen with AdP Colonia Intensa. It was the usual (bland) citrus opening, but then turned into one of the most beautiful dry downs in recent memory. It was from a sample and I wore it 3 days in a row, I believe. Each time looking forward to the dry down and just enjoying it. I then get a full bottle and something snapped. It was just the strong citrus opening and wasn't getting the same enjoyment in the dry down.

    I started thinking my bottle was bad. So, I sprayed the bottle on the back of one hand and what's left of my sample in the other. They smelled exactly the same all the way through...but no magical dry down! Still not sure what happened. Did my nose change? lol Anyway, I'm off it for a week or so and I'll try again. This is a bit troubling for me.

    This is a truly remarkable scent for the designer realm.

    I love when that happens. On Monday I wore Armani Code Sport 2016 and it was really clicking, the perfect choice for that day. I enjoyed it even more than Spice and Wood, my all time favorite, which I had worn on Saturday night. And that night, S&W and I weren't getting along so great. It definitely goes both ways.

    Today I'm wearing Code Sport again and while it's pleasant, it's not hitting like it was on Monday.
