    Update: After 4 hours of wear, I'm calling in BdJ (signature) to relieve 1725. That latter is just so... soft. I guess I'm learning that I don't like wallflower fougeres. So I'll go the other direction, and get slapped around with a big, metallic dose of lavender and geranium

    I'm on watch. An extremely important auction for me on ebay.

    My parents gave me a few jars of home made plum jam with wallnuts, without added sugar, still warm.
    Impresive smell - slightly smoked, thick, not very sweet, spiced, some cinammon and a little bit of sourness. Splendid. I want a gourmand like that made by Christopher Sheldrake (Arabie).

    Yeah, I know a guy who knows a guy like that.

    Anyway, I didn't catch this. I thought you think there is something controversial with the pyramid. But it looks very good to me. It actually really got my attention.
    Or the stupid bottle design? Or maybe the lame posters with the same lost boys with hollow eyes?

    For me it was a very strange one. That sideritis (mountain tea) is overwhelming, it bury all the notes.
    I didn't feel like testing it again.

    These are the doggiest days of summer and even though I want to reach for fall favorites, it will be triple digits here and smokey so Eau de Rochas Homme, a summer refresher--new to me so I am still getting to know it--fits the bill nicely.

    Opium Pour Homme, just to obliterate myself this afternoon. Ended up on some female coworkers who happen to be friends and were neatly over sprayed, the place I work in was nearly empty, but that side of the building reek of, erm..Opium!

    This ^^^

    It's going back in its box and I'm leaving it alone for 3 months.

    The performance is far from acceptable at this point and it died around the 4 hour mark on my skin. Maceration clearly needs to be allowed to occur and that's fine by me. It smells 'rich' in the opening few seconds, richer and more note-dense than other batches I've tried, and I'm hoping that's what the fragrance is going to become in time.

    It does not look as cheap in person as it does in stock photos, I like how the silver shines on the label maceration does indeed do Aventus a lot of good.

    Very much so, that was my thought. The matte black is pleasant and the triangles are textured, which helps when holding it if nothing else.

    The campaign and design is pretty controversial, but I like the scent a lot. If you get the chance, try it, I think it‘s worth it. In the late dry down, about 10-12 hours in, it got slightly grating last time, but still, I think this is a winner.

    This morning I fumbled with a sample of Follow by Kerosene and ended up spilling it all over myself so that was my scent of the morning. Yum, coffee!

    After showering, I applied Heritage because I kept thinking about it at random times throughout the week. I can still smell the Follow too and the combination is not too bad!

    I was surprised actually, I think my previously bought decant must have been a later version, it is brighter.
    This 'first release' bottle feels very dusty; it reminds me of Myhrre Ardente by Goutal.

    Arabie

    Because of the plum jam with walnuts from my parents.
    And because it's thermonuclear and it can cover the 4 fragrances that I can sniff at the same time on me.

    In the morning when I woke up all 4 fought for my attention - 31 Rue Cambon, Bois des Iles, Cuir de Russie (very weak, but it was the first applied yesterday from Chanels) and Krizia Moods.
    Krizia Moods beat them all, even though it stayed on my skin with 1 day longer than the others (+48 hours !!!).
    I hadn't noticed it was so long-lived until now. But instead I remembered it was extraordinary.

    It is famously a fougere but I don't think of it that way much myself.

    I'm curious... you have a "Dandy" section, and a "Fougere" section. What others?
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.
