    I'm talking about this one, with the red cap, which is a completely different fragrance from the current Lapidus Pour Homme.

    Red Lapidus Pour Homme smells really, really good. But, on me, performance is shit. 25 sprays post showering, and it sits close to the skin after an hour. But again, your mileage may vary. Or maybe I'm anosmic to it. But it smells awesome, you'll dig it. Won't buy a backup, though

    Holy cow. 25 sprays of anything will literally end my life. 6 is overkill of anything outside colognes for me.

    No vintage today; going with Dunhill Icon. It's been over a year since I last wore it. Goodness.

    Thinking about those Oleg Cassini 1970s design bottles yesterday led me to thinking about the brief craze that followed that period -- the primary colors and geometric shapes of Memphis Design in the late '80s/early '90s. For a short time it was everywhere, from china patterns to bedsheets to Michael Graves teakettles, but try as I might I could only think of one perfume bottle that employed those motifs: Tocade. If anybody can think of another one, I'd love to be reminded of it.
    I think the Tocade bottle is closest, but the Loulou bottles, the EDP spray more than the splash, seem to connect with the aesthetic.

    And perhaps Montana’s zippered Just Me, which always topples over!

    They both smell amazing but nothing alike in my humble opinion; they smell totally different.

    Update: Smelling from the nozzles only they smell different. Initial first spray and they smell different. But, after a few minutes on the test strips I'm starting to smell some similarities!

    It's like a fresher version of the original, with some mint, a bit of apple and something that feels like tobacco or something. It smells like original Jazz, but fresher and just as great! Muuuuch to expensive to me, though

    Here's my poem about it that I wrote when I was 16 or so lol

    Autumn.
    Wait for dusk...
    go in a dense forest,
    colours changing
    while it rains lightly,
    grab some crunchy leaves
    exhale freely, inhale deeply
    that's Balafre!


    Nothing to abstract but a plain and simple view...

    I guess I could see LouLou fitting in that style.

    I had never heard of the Montana; between this bottle and it being described as like Theorema, it sounds possbly worth a snipe hunt.

    Two large central libraries that I'm intimately familiar with were designed by Michael Graves, Denver's and Topeka's. They are both pretty ridiculous looking. Topeka's is cool inside, though.

    Here's Topeka's cyclops. Do not anger the cyclops.

    And Denver's, which looks to me like a whimsical jail.

    Good lord. the Topeka one looks like he was trying to channel the adobe architecture of northern New Mexico. And while that one's ridiculous, the Denver one is just plain... hideous. Was he trying to reference Brutalism? Or Soviet-era apartment blocks?
