I effing loved the dry-down all right. It was ever so slightly Chergui-esque on me, especially wrt to the sweetness (but sans the smokiness of Chergui), and Chergui's one of my all time favourite scents. Will wear again before deciding whether to buy a full sized bottle or not (probably not, if I find it dangerously similar to Chergui).

Today: Serge Lutens Rose de Nuit

Oh dear. This smells like soap on me. And I get a lot of jasmine, albeit it supposed to be a rose fragrance. Bit like A la Nuit, but more soapy. Still, am not writing it off yet. Will see how it evolves over the course of the next few hours.

The rose did eventually crawl out of the woodwork, but it did take a while for the soapy beginning to give way to the sublime middle and base notes. The dry down was simply beautiful. Slightly animalistic, which I absolutely loved.

Today: nothing.

Serge Lutens Fumerie Turque.

I smelt like a bloody curry house. It's too strong and lingers for hours on end, and tobacco doesn't agree with my skin. It turns into something truly beautiful in the fag end, as with all other Lutens scents, but it's just not worth spending $140 on for a few fleeting hours. It's a shame, because it'd got glowing reviews on makeupalley, basenotes, thenonblonde etc and I was almost about to buy it blind.

Still, I like it more than Tobacco Vanille. At least the Lutens scents evolve over the course of the day. TV is excruciatingly linear on my skin, and smells the same all along.

Ralph Lauren Romance.

I bought this blind a couple of years ago at an airport, and used to wear it sporadically. I think I initially liked it a lot, but now it smells pretty run of the mill and rather boring.

Chene for me is a well blend of Chypre Rouge and Arabie. Obviously, Monsieur Lutens's so fascinated with this kind of creations.

Today, Attrape Coeur, a typical vintage Guerlain with a hint of gourmand.

By Kilian Pure Oud

Smells very plasticky and synthetic and rubbery on me. That's the second Kilian scent to disappoint, the first being Prelude to Love.
