    Patchouli 24

    The descriptions I had read of it were so baroque that I had expected something monstrous. In reality, it's an admittedly unusual, but intriguing and ultimately deeply satisfying scent.

    That is a really good one. If the rest of Le Labo was like Patchouli & their Oud then they'd be darlings of fragrance obsessives. I wonder what marketing decisions were made to have such a safe line with only a couple of outliers.

    Yesterday was cold and dreary - perfect weather for M7 Oud Absolu. 3 sprays lasted a crazy long time, and it had such a cozy warmth. I own both the original M7 (first formulation) and M7 Oud Absolu. I think I prefer M7OA. It's such an underrated gem.

    Ooh, your bottle came fast! I'm eagerly awaiting my sample in the mail.

    Any more thoughts on it? What kind of rose is it? Fresh and dewy/dark and opulent/green? etc

    Does it remind you of anything else?

    Givenchy Gentleman EDP

    I haven't worn the reformulated Dior Homme Intense in over 5 years, but going on memory alone, I'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between it and Gentleman EDP. I'd have to be wearing one fragrance on each wrist to tell them apart, and the differences would be pretty subtle I think.

    I guess if money is not an issue, DHI might smell of slightly more quality than the Givenchy, but that's just a guess going off memory. At any rate, for the $60 per 100ml I paid for the Gentleman EDP, I'm more than impressed, and glad that there is a much cheaper alternative Dior Homme Intense for the moment.

    Sometimes spicy scents do benefit from the heat. I could say that for a number of scents that fall in to that genre.
