    Parle Moi de Parfum - Mile High / 38

    The pineapple is very evident; though not *quite* as realistic as in Music for a While, I think. Some sweetness, and like an almost powdery tart-ness comes to mind.

    Not bad at all!

    Edit: Ha, just saw 'reminds me of' Music for a While on Fragrantica. Yep! Though Music for a While seems a bit more avantgarde & natural/realistic. This seems more candied, and 'perfume-y' in a way - which may be preferable to a lot of people over the Malle.

    D.L.Roelen "Flower Boy" and "Broken Bouquet"
    they're not really good, I was expecting something different and mind blowing according to the reviews, but it's average and not original
    "Ambivalence" is sublime, though

    two other samples left to test through

    Ariana Grande REM: Nice but faint, maybe needed to spray more tbf. Seemed unisex to me if comfortable with Sweet non masculine scents.

    La Vie est Belle: this is like pure hairspray feminine note I get from Montale Wild Pears & Oudmazing amongst a lot of other feminine scents. Nice for women

    Mont Blanc Legend EdP: not for me but not bad

    Refreshed my memory on:

    Dior Homme Cologne: nice, like a less sour B22

    D&G Light Blue for Women: nice, not overly feminine. Reminds me of Versace Man eau Fraiche & Soleil de Capri. Not sure which I prefer

    Yea it's pretty good stuff, it's the only other Byredo (besides M/Mink which I have) that I'm tempted to buy. It doesn't' smell anything like oud but it is an interesting fragrance none the less, but sometimes I find the sharp limoncello note a bit abrasive.

    Native Sea Salt & Cedar Deodorant

    Along the lines of fragrances like Dior Homme Cologne & Dior Homme Sport. Bright & Fresh, just enough Citrus to smell extra clean without going Lemon Cleaner or sour. I believe it's only available at Target but worth checking out if you are already at the store and enjoy those type of scents. I like it

    Parle Moi de Parfum - Milky Musk / 39

    Like if you toned down Santal 33 quite a bit, and added a white musk to it? Not bad at all.

    Edit: I scrolled down on Fragrantica and saw Santal 33 in the 'reminds me of' area, so it seems others got a resemblance as well; good!
    Edit 2: Ah, it's a sandalwood frag. Makes sense then - same type of sandalwood chemical(s) perhaps as Santal 33?

    Funny. I picked up a small bottle of this in a Nordstrom awhile back. I really loved it. It’s much more “in your face” than other benign Byredo frags. Wore it a few times and for some reason I can’t stand it anymore. A total scrubber. I think it’s the limoncello. I returned it. You gotta love Nordstrom’s return policy!

    Solinotes Vanille: smells like Montale Sweet Vanilla's dry down, almost identical. Performance wise I dont know if it's as good.

    Solinotes Tonka, Cherry Blossom, smelled perfumey feminine.

    Mix Bar Bourbon Vanilla, BlackBerry Tonic, Tangerine Squeeze: all smelled very very unisex and really nice, I was surprised. However it was the body mist I tried so maybe the perfume is more feminine

    All this stuff is at target. I liked almost everything

    Indult Tihota:
    Smells like just what I was hoping for. An airy Vanilla that doesnt lean overly sweet or overly mature, but doesnt feel like it's not mature either. Very simple and straightforward. Most likely the best Vanilla I've tried so far. The projection seems constant and very gentle.

    Mancera Soleil d'Italie:
    I'm gettin random strong whiffs of something nice. The citruses are not overly acidic or overly sweet, but rather keep a dry almost astrigent quality, however nowhere near as astrigent as any of the fig fragrances I've tried. Kinda reminds me of The One EdP without any of the tobacco or amber, just the citrusy fresh stuff. But there's another frag I cant seem to recall that might be closer.

    Mancera Amber Fever:
    I thought Montale Sensual Instinct immediately, but it never fully goes in that territory and instead has a softer feel. I dont immediately see the similarities to Instant Crush or BR540, but you can tell its in that genre. The whiskey note is very well done in how much there is of it, nothing super boozy but enough that it satisfies while staying well blended in the composition. I would say it's a less sweet, boozier and airier version of Montale Sensual Instinct.

    Overall, I like all of these, good sample haul

    Boadicea the Victorious - Intricate

    A potent heavy leather + oud fragrance. This does NOT smell like Tuscan Leather. This is more raw & aggressive, and doesn't have that typical Tuscan Leather / Golden Boy / C for Men / Colonia Leather type 'leather' accord.

    The oud appears quite prominent as well, nicely done. Not totally my style, but someone could totally rock this.

    If you're looking for a heavy hitter in the leather + oud realm, check it out.

    Edit: Whoops, I maybe spilled some on my keyboard.. that might be part of the reason why it was so noticeable? Haha

    Tell us why, what did you think of it? I just recently have been trying the Hermes classics, I liked Bel Ami but Equipage was my favorite. Eau d'Hermes is the hard pass for me, way too accurate BO smell on that one.

    Azzaro Pour Homme Nighttime - not sure what to make of it, but I'm leaning on pass. It reminds me of something else but I can't place it.

    Nomenclature - Holy_Wood

    A light, but busy formula. Rose, something minty(?), and a patchouli-like smell. Edit: Later on it smells of typical patchouli, maybe a tad lighter, but it does have the 'dirtiness' of patchouli. They used 'Clearwood' in this.

    "The very first fragrance ingredient designed through White Biotechnology, Clearwood® is the 21st century’s answer to patchouli. Developed in California for Firmenich, this sustainable, eco-friendly material is derived from the fermentation of sugar cane. Blurring the boundary between the natural and the man-made, the pioneering Clearwood® ushers in a new age for perfumery."

    Makes me think of something that A Lab on Fire would make, or has made something similar to.

    So yeah.. a woody rose. Not bad, a bit interesting.

    For the record, this does NOT remind me of Portrait of a Lady.
    Then again, this BtV Intricate has been blasting my nose, lol. I even tried washing it off a lot, but it still prevails (but not as noticeable anymore).

    Edit: Something I don't

    Sampling for the first time Gianfranco Ferre for Men. Compared to some of the previous samplings, this one seems much more pleasant throughout. Green and citruses in the opening. Florals, spices, herbs in the mid. Oakmoss and woods in the base.

    Francesca Bianchi - Angel's Dust

    Ha, funny. I was just reading about this one recently. Today I started clearing up stuff off the top of my guitar cab trying to find a flash drive, and I come across a spray sample of this that I totally forgot I even had! So.. first wearing on skin (I've sniffed the atomizer before today probably).

    It's... iris + honey + powder, with a backdrop of another floral or something? It's heavy handed stuff. It's not really nuanced or airy; this will be cloying if overapplied. Nice though! Sweet, powder, honeyed iris.
