    I like this Lanvin a lot, but haven't worn it in quite a while.

    Oxygene Homme is one of the best quality and best value renditions of a fresh, office/workplace appropriate as well as more casually versatile warm weather scent.

    As for the personal choices, might either dust off and wear something simultaneously fitting the sync and also not worn during the last 12 months or, if not covering these 2 requirements at once, as the scent choice following immediately after the sync.

    Sample of Xerjoff 40 knots. Looking forward to washing it off after my workout.

    Oud Malaki by Swiss Arabian.

    Sweet dry-ish oud.

    Layers very well with others.

    Havana Blue Cone A/S sample, I think it was 5ml I kept. This is pretty dank so far feels like it'd layer well with Hommage a L'Homme.

    By my last recollection, it's been almost 2 years to the month the last time I wore Bamford Edition Cologne 1. Forgot how much I liked this scent. Would have never even heard of it unless some BN'er mentioned it in a thread.

    Wore two fragrances recently again I did not wear for a very long time:

    - Bogart Witness: Very precious to me and have only 25/50ml left but it is gorgeous and you don't need much! Soon more wears!

    - CK Obsession (2009 15ml bottle) Very long lasting and smells really good actually in the drydown! Seems to be watered down significantly nowadays.

    Tried Gucci Nobile again last night.

    It's nice. It's not 'me, and I certainly don't feel it's 'worth it', but it's pretty good at what it does.

    I also want to say it's almost like a precursor to what me have now in terms of the men's market: a fragrance trying to be 'all things to all men', almost. It's very fresh, also green and classical and somewhat severe, it gets smokey and somewhat sweet in the base, yet has a (not too nice) sandalwood accord in it that...and I'm gonna say it...reminds me of Bleu de Chanel's use of sandalwood/amberwood.

    Interesting stuff. Can see why it appeals to men over a certain age, though, definitely.

    Tried a sample of Roja Vetiver Parfum Cologne and I had to spray on Grey Vetiver. It’s been a long time I’ve smelled GV but gosh I’ve missed it.

    This was a nice, cheapie I used to like wearing the summer. I think everything but the kitchen sink is in it for notes.
