Three constants I will love forever:

Fille de Berlin
Ambre Russe
Avignon (not for me to wear though :ahuh: )

The other two picks will vary depending on what season and mood you catch me in. For today I'll say

Diptyque Volutes
Baume du Doge

There's a pretty constant thread running through my favorites. Very rich, slightly too formal for most social settings, oh well, I also wear ballgowns to work sometimes.

You know what's awesome? Grey Flannel. And it's like twelve dollars. It could pass for a Tom Ford.

my new go-to layering combo move is montale dark vanilla paired with aqua di parma, its very well balanced as a summery thing. tbf you can pair adp with like anything though
I look at bluegrass music as this sort of glowing ball. The point is to relax the technique around the glowing ball of feeling.

I haven't sampled sugi in a while but I remember it being REAL piney. like a deep, resinous pine bomb with some sweeteners on the back end. I think I recall enjoying it, but I gotta try it again soon!!

hmm does not sound good to me... i actually dislike the first half hour of laurel, too medicinal or something, reminding me of pine cleaner a little bit

but after that, ooooh yeah
