    So true. If you get to try it, please chime in. It seems to be different things to different people!

    Wearing Layton again; two days this week, which is unusual for me for any fragrance basically (with exception of sampling). Just had an urge to wear it again!

    It's not particularly classy or layered or masterpiece quality; it just simply smells good & is sweet. /shrug

    Vetiver day:


    Vetiver essential oil
    Really corrosive for a couple of hours, but I love it.


    Lalique Encre Noir (sample)
    I hated this one.
    It's much better now, which surprises me.


    Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Route du Vetiver (sample)
    Sour, earthy, smoky and inky for the first hour, in an unpleasant way for my nose.
    Nice drydown.


    Etro Vetiver
    The vetiver here is very close to my vetiver essential oil.
    Love it!
    I wonder how the vintage version is.
    I could swear that in the old sample I had, there was a very smooth and pleasant note of tobacco in the dry down, which I don't really detect now.


    Later:
    Hiram Green Slowdive
    Reading a few reviews I remembered it. It is one of the tested perfumes that I liked.

    Thank you, Bavard and N.CAL!

    Have you tried Vol de Nuit?
    No.
    But I'll test it if I have the opportunity.
    I'm a little scared of that narcissus which is too high on the Main Notes According to Your Votes (Fragrantica).

    Tuberose Angelica - it was literally a blind reach. I applied Dark Amber & Ginger Lily dry body oil after showering and then reached into my perfume cabinet and grabbed it from my Jo Malone tray without looking. When I sniffed my arm to identify the scent, I realized how DRY Tuberose Angelica really is. I used to wear it a lot when I first got it.

    Personally I don't get any narcissus from Vol de Nuit. I try not to pay attention to the Fragrantica Main Notes By Votes. The only nose you should pay attention to is your own .

    I actually didn't detect the narcissus note probably because it was either blended well or suffocated by the other notes.

    Sampling from a small decant of CDG BLACK.

    A miss for me.

    Very puzzled as to why I would want to smell like extinguished logs in a fireplace.
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    Because it has finally arrived.
    It's even better when sprayed from the wide angle mist sprayer.

    Ambery, leathery, clovey and dirty.
    Thick, smooth and round.
    Great performances on my skin (summer).
    Outstanding!

    It's also good in summer.

    Good quality:
    - nice box a la Amouage;
    - heavy metal cap with "click";
    - heavy bottle, thick bottom, perfectly finished;
    - one side of the bottle is clear (transparent), the other side is mate (sanded) - nice touch;
    - good sprayer.

    Now, who leaves the top shelf?
    Hmm! That's a very tough question.

    Chanel pour Monsieur

    I'm tired. I needed something soothing for a warm evening.
    Pour Monsieur promptly answered the call and promised to help me. I accepted.
    After the initial blast of salty bitterness, it's awesome.
    I've been holding my wrist to my nose for about 15 minutes. I've never found it so good, even though I've always liked it.

    Native Citrus & Herbal Musk Deodorant

    About to spray VpH in a while for my usual gym combo. Just smelling this on its own is nice though, like Candied Citrus but Mature & Fresh smelling. The Citrus note isn't tart/sour at all, just very smooth and fresh
