Heeley Iris de Nuit.

It's literally impalpable on my skin. Worse than some of the L'Artisan scents which have next to no longevity.

Commes Des Garcons Avignon

It's a great incense fragrance, but I'm not quite sure incense agrees with my body chemistry. I'm not one who easily wears masculine fragrances, and while I think this would smell beyond amazing on a guy, I just don't see myself ever being able to pull it off.

I've tried Avignon as well. Love the scent itself, but I'm not convinced it's actually wearable on the skin. It's too dense.

Today and tonight it was Le Labo Rose 31

L'Artisan Tea for Two

Crikey! This smells exactly like one of my Dad's deodorant. It's so smoky and rich that I personally love it, just not on me.

Besides, I don't want to smell exactly like my Dad.

Speaking of dense, smoky and rich incense, today,

Le Labo Labdanum 18

I used to like this more, it's a bit sweet for my current preference.

Luv Spiritueuse Double Vanille!!!!
And Vanille Absolument by LAP on me, it's a divinely gourmand scent with yummy jerk and leathery note.

Le Labo Vetiver 46

This may just be the first vetiver fragrance I really love. Granted it's really not about the vetiver, but still...

Serge Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan



This is the first time I think I felt scared to try out a fragrance.

I didn't hate it outright - I mean, I did give it a chance, but it did end up smelling urinal on me. It's just such a strange smell, definitely not pleasant one.

Spike, I think it is part of the brief that each Le Labo fragrance should not smell like the namesake ingredient. Well, except maybe for Rose 31.

pavonine, I love MKK, but as I said before, I think we are fragrance opposites. To wit,

Serge Lutens Fumerie Turque
