    Samples:
    Arte Profumi Sucre Noir
    Escentric Molecules Molecule 02
    Eau d'Italie Morn to Dusk
    L'Artisan Couleur Vanille

    Only tried Sucre Noir, which is a very nice Vanilla scent, almost cool to the nose. I'd like to understand what Ambroxan (Molecule 02) smells like first hand, rather than being like 'oh is that the Ambroxan?', and maybe it's useful for layering or something idk. The other two are supposedly fresher Vanillas that look intriguing to me

    So today a couple of clones arrived from Germany. Fragrance clones that is.

    Eclat 937, supposed to smell like Veilleur de Nuit. It doesn't. And 946, which is supposed to smell like Black Phantom, and does a reasonable job of it. Better than the Dua and Alexandria fragrances, and the oil from universal perfumes and cosmetics, that are clones of BP.

    I don't like clones, dupes, whatever you call them, but I occasionally buy them out of curioisity, because you know that someone is going to come to a fragrance site or social media claiming this or that clone is just like the real thing. If not better. Yeah, ok.

    Carner Barcelona Salado (100ml)

  17. #227

    Default Re: Today I bought April 2021

    Frederic Malle French Lover 3.4oz. I’ve fallen hard for this fragrance after getting a 7ml splash to sample. The more I wear it, the more nuances & subtleties I find in it to love. This fragrance is poetic and mysterious and I’ve yet to see a review that does it justice. I find myself wanting to wear it every day regardless of temperature or setting.

    Tam Dao edt1.7oz, older square bottle version. I’ve never really thought much of Tam Dao, but I’ve also never really found fault with it(other than wishing it was more sandalwood and less cedar). I’ve come around to accepting it as a good, clean, light cedar fragrance that’s beyond versatile. Looking forward to trying the older version and seeing how it differs.

    Villoresi Sandalo2ml sample. This is one I’ve almost blind bought a full bottle atleast a dozen times. I’m excited to finally try it.

    Azzaro Visit 1.7oz. Another one I’ve been wanting to try for years.

    Congrats! — I feel similar. Got a 10ml and first I liked it, but didn‘t get why it‘s so loved. Plus the late drydown seemed slightly harsh (does still, but only slightly). After some wearings, I‘m really really fond of this. It absolutely kills comparable scents like Royal Oud imo, though you need to wear it more several times to get it. I feel I will need a bigger bottle of this. Curious how older and newer versions compare.

    A great choice from the earlier lineup. Enjoy in good health.

    There are no reviews of it here. There are some on Fragrantica but I find them misleading unless I was sent the wrong sample. I don't get the cucumber (not sure what cucumber smells like) or the "deep citrus" at all. In the opening, I get a green accord like natural freshly cut grass which fades in the background after 20 mins and then the other notes take centre stage. It's not a bright, sparkling citrus fragrance. It's nothing amazing but It's unique and like the dried down, and I much prefer it to the other cheap, synthetic summer frags I have. Also, it was a good deal.

    Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Forever Pour Homme 100ml - blind buy.

    The brand new EdP flanker, very intrigued. Positive reviews. A musky sweet grapefruit? Let's do this!

    15% Rakuten cash back, discount on Macy's (code: FRIEND) for 15% or something. Though I did add Door Dash to get it today instead of waiting, lol.

    Dolce & Gabbana The One Grey & The One For Men Eau de Parfum Intense - both 100ml

    The One Grey because I'm curious about comparison to Grey Vetiver mixed with the original The One for Men EdT (and it's only like $42!).

    Re-acquisition for EdP Intense - ordered from FragranceX (price seems to have gone up for this one in general, not sure why); but then I noticed on Macy's with the 15% sale.. plus 15% cashback... I cancelled FragranceX and just went retail.
