Rochas Globe (1990)

I remember the first day this blew my head off, from a sample given to me by someone not really around anymore.
Then I bought 3 bottles (one of which belonged to Epapsiou)!! I have only worn it 15 times since. I need to wear it MORE and stop being a miser. It's gorgeous!

Purple Rain. One of the few epic pieces that I can vividly remember the moment I first heard it's
Brilliance.

I didn't get at the moment of Purple rain came out its greatness. Now I do.

Today: Brummel, Puig.1975. Jean-Francois Latty, Max Gavarry & Rosendo Mateu.

I know this one is marketed as a cheap fragrance, but it smells fine: lemony woody scent. I also know it's said to have poor longevity, but since it's cheaper than chips, who cares if I want to spray it a zillion times a day ?

I need to try Brummel.

Also, I think Prince's best work was with The Revolution.

Hah!
The first time I heard Purple Rain was while shopping for a new pair of slacks in a small Boutique in Vancouver called Beau Brummel mid 80's.
What fragrance was I wearing?
A scent not widely available in Vancouver at the time called Armani Eau Pour Homme.

It takes a while to get to its best, a slow developer.

Syncing for the best event of the entire calendar year, even better than Christmas in my book, the dawning of the Autumn Equinox and the start of the season for the mighty and much-missed ....

Sycomore EDT

Cut down in the prime of its life at only 8 years old.

70's Tabac Blond Caron EDC.
A healthy dose to keep me warm this cold rainy day!

It’s a proper treat to see PureCaramel posting, celebrating Tabac Blond, no less!

In a similar celebratory mood, I’ve gone with Antaeus Sport!

Heading for our summer house/cottage, which is surrounded by vast swathes of forest, so Agua Brava will fit the bill brilliantly!

Very nice fitting choice, Motorcade ! :thumbsup:

Givenchy Gentleman, Givenchy. 1974. Paul Léger.

I suppose the combo Honey-Cedar-Civet is giving the "cut-wood pissy" smell that I love in this one. Just great.

Earlier this morning I went with Kouros (PPR-Gucci version. Kouroucci?). 4 hearty sprays, 2 x chest 2 x t-shirt. The base smells heavenly! And I actually got a compliment from a young lady (early 20s or so). It's been a loooooooooong time since I last got a fragrance-compliment. But a girl in her early tweens diggin' Kouros, I think is cool [emoji1690]

Kourucci sounds nice ! Haha, a mix between Greek, Romanian ans Italian scent ! :lolk: Just kidding.

Congrats on Kouros, my friend ! Nice to see that some people outside fragrance lovers do enjoy smelling scents !
