    Default Micallef's Yellow Sea.....I had forgotten how good this was.

    Puttering around today and found myself going through some old bottles in storage.

    Came across the Big Box of Micallef's Yellow Sea. I decided to remove the plastic slide and lift the box open. I didn't recall how much remained.

    Wow. Half of the 100ml. was still there. ( my memory isn't so great anymore ). I decided to re-sample wear this to see if I still liked it.

    I immediately remembered why I liked this 10 years ago. If I didn't know better, I would think there's Ambergris in this, but I don't believe it's a listed note.

    Nice citrus in the opening, underpinned with mild patchouli and lavender and then bolstered by a slightly spicy Van-Amber.

    This is an extremely nice wear. I'm glad I decided to go through some of my older wardrobe.

    I never recall this scent getting much attention here. That's too bad.

    Yeah! Yellow Sea is a true treasure. I'm also getting ambergris, quite sure, which comes across at first as some sort of an off-note: slightly salty, briney, a bit sulphuric. Then it has a sweet ambery tobacco quality, nice.

    Another fan here. Yellow Sea was one the two finest releases ever from Micallef, IMO. The Seas series in general was great, though I couldn’t get along with Red Sea due its dirty aspect.
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Jasmin Antique (Rogue Perfumery)
    3) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie
    3) Giorgio V.I.P. Special Reserve (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie

    5) Dia pour Homme vintage edt (Amouage)

    6) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    7) Nombre Noir (Shiseido)
    8) Lucifer (Renaissance Fragrances) - tie
    8) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    8) Polo vintage (Ralph Lauren) - tie

    Currently wearing: Polo by Ralph Lauren

    It was beautiful collection. I still have White Sea, but Yellow was best one.

    There are so many good ones. I'd suggest looking into Arabian Diamond, Santal Impeial, Akowa, Desir Toxic, Osswald For Men and Jadu Special Edition
