    But the real everyday winner lately is the one I have been using as "sanitizer" when out and about: 4711 cologne. It happened twice in the past week that sanitizing staff at the store entrances have swooned over 4711 when I sprayed it on my hands and were delighted to in turn receive some spritzes on their hands and arms, which they were eagerly sniffing as I entered the stores. So nice to be a harbinger of good scents!
    I saw you mentioning somewhere that you use it as hand sanitizer. I hope this doesn‘t come across strange in some way: Some weeks ago, I‘ve read on several different sources that an alcohol concentration of 86% (that was the one found in 4711?) is too high and therefore, counterintuitively, not as effective. Actually even a little harmful, as it helps bacteria and viruses to get immune to alcohol. They highly recommended diluting strong ethanol to 70%. I‘m no chemist or biologist (anyone?) and cannot verify this, just wanted to post this for everyone, as it might be helpful. Hope that is ok

    Nonetheless, I absolutely love the idea and am thinking about getting some plus distilled water for that purpose myself. Plus it‘s super nice that people love it - maybe you are growing some new members there

    Guerlain L'Heure Bleue - recent discussion prompted me to do so.

    Is there any similarities to Oud Satin Mood? That one focuses on vanilla and rose. Hardly any oud in that one.

    Thanks for asking the question, you made me refer to my notes.

    Yes I have 6 Moleskines of perfume notes.

    Oud Satin Mood had a make-up aroma to my nose, violets and powdery benzoin along with the rose. Very slight oud in the dry if I searched for it.

    I compared it to Lipstick Rose Frederic Malle, Misia Chanel, and Paris YSL.

    Roses Vanille is all plum-scented rose and vanilla and musk on my skin, Exuberant.

    Thanks for the info. I searched to try to find out more about the best alcohol content. The official info found indicated between 60-80% but I could not find anything on higher amounts. If 86% is a bit too much alcohol, I'm not too worried because as I am avoiding unnecessary shopping, it is used fairly infrequently and in small amounts. I am also hoping that the perfume oils contained in 4711 might attenuate the potency of the alcohol somewhat.


    Today I opted for Chanel Allure edp, cool, calm and collected. Just what is needed.

    I'm wearing Twilly d'Hermes Eau Poivree today because I'm trying to rekindle my initial liking for it. I used to wear it for long distance driving because the pepper note is so energizing but due to COVID I no longer drive much. Now I wish I had got regular Twilly or another Hermes.

    Still and all, an energizing perfume might come in handy on some other occasion.

    I doused the Twilly d'Hermes Eau Poivree with Copper Skies and now it's just fine. The black pepper is peeking through the heavy amber. Actually, it's a pretty good combination. The noses over at Hermes might be appalled.

    I’m sticking with Chanel Allure, edp and parfum. In addition to smelling good, it is also more likely to encourage activity than some of my other perfumes, which can tend toward the languorous.

    Havana. Going through the Aramis stuff to see if I can whittle it down a bit. Think Tuscany might be a goner.

    Default Re: Why did you wear what you wore today..

    This morning:
    Prada Infusion d'Iris

    I wanted to check how it behave in hot weather.
    It shine.

    The same with Aramis Tuscany, Aramis Havana, Etro Vetiver, Phaedon Black Vetiver, Czech & Speake Cuba, NuParfums Bronze Age, Dior Eau Sauvage, Dior Diorella, Dior Homme Cologne, Fragonard Grand Luxe.
    I'm not very prepared for this type of weather. The others perfumes from my collection are overwhelming in the summer.
    I can wear a favorite perfume only on cool nights.







    Now:
    Guerlain Vetiver

    The friend I gave (swap) my Guerlain Vetiver wore it today. I really liked how it smells on him. He didn't understand how I couldn't like it.
    He had the bottle in his car, so I tested it again.
    It's horrible on my skin - overdose of freshly ground white pepper.
    We both wondered how different it smells on our skins.







    At night if it's cool:
    Laurent Mazzone Black Oud

    New arrival.
    It's overwhelming in hot weather.
    Anyway, I so loooooove it!
    It's in my top 5.

    Pretty lame finish for the money - the paint it's wavy (detailed sprayer photo) and the sprayer it's only decent, not excellent, it's not very smooth. But it's not really a tragedy. It's way better than Lalique Or Intemporel, for example, which was a disaster (wavy paint).
