    2 purchases this month. Gentle Fluidity was my first foray into MFK and I love many of his offerings. I'll be adding Masculin Pluriel at the end of the month also.

    Cartier Oud & Menthe:
    Went out with the intention of buying Tuscan Leather Intense. Reviews read well and there was a 15% promotion making the price more palatable. A test spray on skin and an hour into it and I knew it would be a poor choice. Dropped into Cartier which was very nearby. I like the oud line but this location rarely stocks any. On this visit they had them all including the new Oud & Menthe but there were no testers... Blind bought O&M. It ought to be Menthe & Oud as the mint opening is excellent and carries through to dry down as the Oud emerges and takes on a more prominent role. The Oud is very similar to that in Oud & Oud. Refined, animalic, but not skanky. Lasts all day and through the night. Good projection and probably office safe for most. Very hot and humid weather here and the O&M fills the need for a stimulating summer scent.

    I’m awaiting delivery of two scents right now that I’m very excited about:

    - Gengis Kahn
    - Creed Royal Oud

    As a newbie, I would never have heard of either of these scents were it not for this forum. So...thanks!

    Yesterday I bought:
    Hugo Boss Number One
    Diesel Men Fuel for Life ($24.99 Target clearance)
    Drakkar Noir ($15 Target clearance)

    For whatever psychological reason, I’ve bought 7 bottles the past 10 days. Sometimes I just binge. I’m a sucker for clearance deals.

    That’s true. Cologne is kind of like comfort food for me, and with one son married and just moved far off, and another just getting ready to start college in two weeks, I think I’m just trying to pacify myself.

    That’s my self diagnosis!

    I might revisit it but I generally have trouble with Tom Ford. Were it less sweet, a little more smokey, and displayed more development I would have been sold. Perhaps it was the hot humid weather but it bored me. Only Tobacco Oud and Ombre Leather 16 have made it to full bottle status. On the other hand I am wearing Oud Menthe for the 4th time in a row and doing a compare/contrast with Beach Hut Man. Great buy.
