    Re: Your Vintage Scent of the Day (SOTD)

    I sometimes wonder how much of the difference in the aggression of the citrus or aldehydes perceived in the openings of modern vs vintage is just due to the top notes burning off. Curious to hear...

    Re: Your Vintage Scent of the Day (SOTD)

    I recently got a sample of this and it is really great. I wish it wasn't so expensive nowadays. It drops some of the tobacco notes in the EDT and goes for a more raw clean vetiver. It reminds me...
