    Synchronized Fridays 2021

    Her initial vote was for Maurer & Wirtz Tabac, which I nixed because, name not withstanding, I don’t perceive it as tobacco, much less leather. So I’m going with her second choice:

    how many shoes should a man have?

    Another perfectly fine “clone” of the Common Projects Achilles Low.

    Synchronized Fridays 2021

    I found Habanita—or at least the sample I tried—unwearable, but I didn’t think of it as tobacco or leather (or rubber/ash). Rather, I got a suffocating vanilla/musk bomb. I’d be curious to try the 1920s version, but it’s not exactly at the top of my list. I have a pretty deep selection of...

    What will you be wearing on Thanksgiving?

    …and so it came to be.

    SMN Peau d'Espagne: blind buy?

    If you’re “not that much into leather scents,” then, no, not a safe blind buy. I love it, but I’m very much into leather scents. In your case, I would strongly advise sampling first. It’s nothing like Eau d’Hermès, and it could beat up Bel Ami with one arm tied behind its back. (Note that I love...

    What will you be wearing on Thanksgiving?

    It’s Dr. T.’s birthday today, so she gets to pick what I wear tonight. Likely candidates include Amouage Silver, Clive Christian 1872, Guerlain Héritage, and Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur, but she has a few <cough> other options, so she may yet surprise me.

    Michael Edwards renounces Oriental

    “Ambra” is Italian for “amber.”

    how many shoes should a man have?

    Smooth leather is smooth leather. The only difference with sneakers is, no edge dressing.

    In cyberspace, no one can hear you type. If I could remember that, I could remember what I have backed up.

    Sync - Vetiver Wednesdays: an invitation to a magical journey

    Her name is “Star” because her prices are astronomical.

    Sync - Vetiver Wednesdays: an invitation to a magical journey

    If N.Cal got his sample and info from Alexandra Star, then reputedly quite reliable.

    aggarwoodassam/dixit&zak

    I’m enjoying it very much, especially after the dreadful Xerjoff sample I tried before it. A successful blind buy.

    Suggestion Wardrobe Features: Backups

    Yes, and/or a “my wardrobe” dropdown in Search when in Wardrobe or Directory, and perhaps a corresponding “search my wardrobe” option in the Advanced Search dialog. It would be useful to be able to search another user’s wardrobe, as well—for example, if I’m preparing to swap, and I want to see...

    Sync - Vetiver Wednesdays: an invitation to a magical journey

    My review of this is in the Sample of the Day thread. It is not positive.

    Suggestion Wardrobe Features: Backups

    The thing is, that info is in the directory entries for the fragrances already—or at least, it’s supposed to be—so creating tags for it is a laborious redundancy. (I would have to manually tag every note and perfumer in every one of my 1,300+ frags to gain the functionality I’m requesting.) Tags...

    Sample of the Day - November 2021

    Xerjoff - Accento Originally issued as part of Xerjoff’s sub line Sospiro, Accento is ostensibly a fruity floral with a vetiver-fortified oriental base. I picked it from my wife’s box of rejected/extraneous samples today for the vetiver (the Wednesday Vetiver Magical Journey). I’m starting to...
