    I think it's the overripe fruit that made me associate it with Diorella. Tonight I did a quick comparison and that element is something I definitely smell in the opening of both fragrances.

    Comparison with ES I find difficult to say. For current formulation I would say no, but I do smell similarities to my vintage mini (again, this is a broad association) of ES.
    I hear you man. Nose and perceptions are so different. You should see the sample pass threads - it would appear that people are talking about different fragrances.
    The latest one being - http://www.basenotes.net/threads/468...-Bear-Perfumes where almost everyone has a different opinion of same fragrance.

    Yes, it's funny how this works. I think maybe part of it has to do with the amount of perfumes someone smelled. In my instance, if I smell a vintage fragrance with an overripe fruit note, my mind immediately drifts to vintage Dioralla as that is one of the only vintages I know right that has that smell. I guess with time and experience, one is able to make more accurate associations, and fragrances that seem to have strong resemblances early on in this hobby, can seem worlds apart once you sniffed a whole lot more.
    Besides this, of course also everyone's perception is different. I found it interesting in that regard that you described the Davidoff as leathery/tobacco, as that is not the perception I have of the scent.
    It makes me wonder if we do all smell the same, but it's just our mind that categorizes that smell differently so everyone gets another perception of it (i.e. what your mind categorizes as leathery/tobacco, my mind categorizes as smoky), or that our sens of smell really differs from each other?

    Early impressions are equally valid, I think.

    I don't think so. Associations are different, as you described, and vocabulary, but I think senses work about the same from one person to the next.

    As my interrest in my own wardrobe/collection as well as the excitement of further fragrance-purchases for some reason feels slowly but surely fading away, I'll just play it safe and wear Brut Cologne as my SOTD+E.
    Strange.. Anyone else felt like this?

    I’m always into the fragrances I have. I can get behind the idea of a buying freeze.

    Not out of Marand's "frag-ennui," but more, "why the hell not?" I was never a Brut guy, but even on a first wear, the scent is immediately familiar, which speaks to its monumental market penetration. To a generation (or more) of American men, this is the definitive smell of aftershave/cologne. It's not very "me," but it's a no-brainer for a collection. All things considered, we could have done a lot worse than this as the blue-collar standard of the mid-to-late 20th century.

    Rocking Inis by Fragrances of Ireland again. Maybe I’ve gravitated to it lately since I’m headed on a beach vacation this weekend? Oh, and it also dries down very pleasant on my skin. Gets compliments too. Not that compliments really matter. Just a side note.

    Roger that. And being "middle aged", as well as a "barbershop" genre kind of guy, Brut (especially this EdC version) has always been in the rotation, and always will.
