Hi Larimar! Is it everything fine with you? I send you a message a time ago, but i don't know if you have receive it. Well, i just hope everything is right with you Sorry for not being such a present friend lately!
Oh, I am nowhere near done with all of them them yet! Eau Des Iles has been an absolute revelation. Usually not keen on a coffee note. This is wonderful and as I said the other day, it comes off more of a tobacco note on me and I can't help think about Tabac Blond which is a complete surprise! The Jeune Homme, well see SOTD! Bahiana I already knew, Jardin du Nil I can't grasp, still trying. I'll send them on at some point. Ta!
Thanks! I'm overflowing with happiness right now. I had a perfect day - run my errands perfectly, then smelled a lot of perfume, both new and those older I've never tried so far and to end the day perfectly, the bottle of Bois d'Iris arrived (along with a Davidoff aftershave for my dad for next weekend's Father's Day)
Thanks for your kind words, Larimar. In my opinion the modern Cuir de Russie parfum is perhaps the most exquisite fragrance on the market today. I own a mini bottle of the parfum, and I am trying to use it sparingly so that - someday - I can take a dream vacation to Paris and buy the full 15ml bottle there. It will be such a special memento of the trip. Glad to know that others appreciate it too, I know the modern version sometimes gets a bad rap for not being "animalic" enough, but I think it is mind-bendingly beautiful.
Thank you Larimar! I'm female and I don't really have much to contribute about masculine fragrances, but I do love Cuir de Russie. Wearing the modern parfum right now, and I feel like I'm getting high on it. lol
Thanks again for your kind words!
So I mistook your recommendation for Bois De Iles for MPG's Eau Des Iles. (Oops.) But I went ahead and bought a bottle of Eau Des Iles, after reading reviews, and it's turned out to be quite a nice and agreeable scent- suitable even! I find this amusing, and for the best.
