Eau d'Hadrien edp on this hot, humid day. An older version. Probably my all-time favorite summer perfume.

Today I'm wearing the Salvador Dali version of Schiaparelli's Le Roy Soleil.

The difference between the versions is the year they were created and the bottles used. This bottle created in the 90's has a plastic head with a glass body. It is a PDT so, quite a strong brew.
Schiaperelli's version was created to celebrate the end of the WWII, the glass was baccarat crystal. Both times the bottle was attributed to Dali even then, and it carried forward to his own brand.

Its an absolutely enjoyable perfume, the fruityness, the cloves (which aren't super heavy) When notes are compared it seemed to mimic that 1946 perfume pretty square on. That being such a limited run its going to be super hard to find. This one for a while after it was discontinued was sky high. My bottle thankfully was about 20 bucks. I don't know what year I have but man it smells good.

Today I'm wearing Guerlain Du 68 Cologne.

The cologne is much more citric forward than the EDP. EDP pretty much lacks those notes (I wouldn't say its floral either) Both have a tonka heavy drydown, the EDP more so than the cologne.

The cologne is unfortunately discontinued. I find it to be very strong but less weighty for this time of year.

Today I'm wearing Amouage Beloved which by rights is a very strong juice. I have an older bottle that I just adore and normally, use 1 spray of. Well, today I put on 5 :oops2: :appl:. Considering whats going on with me, I can't smell all of it and its not like I'm going anywhere right?

I smell something that vaguely smells like powder, roses and sweet herbs. Smells good though!! In this state its not a heavy smell, though I'm sure it would knock some folks out:lol:

I agree. I love all the Hermessence fragrances. I don't know if they still sell sample packs but in the past you could purchase a set of samples for a reasonable cost and try before you buy a full bottle. I love all of their Hermessence fragrances. All delicious gourmand scents. My favorite is the Vetiver Tonka but IMO they are all FB worthy! Hope you enjoy!




Yes, definitely get a FB. I go through it too fast LOL but one of the things I greatly appreciate about it is that it is a gentle not overbearing scent so it is almost impossible to over spray. And it is so good.

I was able to fins sample bottles on Ebay

Sample bottles are reasonably priced so I prefer not getting it on ebay just because I don't trust it's authenticity.

I have been wearing Boadicea the victorious Bodecious, for the last few day. I smell like a big bowl of cherry, clove and jasmine in the most delicious sweet way. Lasts all day reminds me of Tom ford's Lost cherry

Miss Dior here today, using up my free-with-purchase miniature bottle. It's pleasant enough but, like many of the newer formulas, the fragrance seems kind of flat or one dimensional or whatever you'd call it.

ETA: Re "Lost Cherry," I wish they'd quit with the crude names. I buy perfume for the luxury of it, not to snicker at naughty words like a twelve year old. :(

Hermès eau des merveilles - every day for more than a decade. I know it’s boring, but I’m a “signature scent” more than a “scent wardrobe” kind of person. Also, I have several family members who are quite sensitive to scents, and this is one of very few that doesn’t give them headaches.

It’s EDT, but seems to lasts all day. More on the light/subtle/sheer side. Noticeable when close, but you can’t smell me coming a block away.

Smells kind of citrusy/salty/peppery/amber-y/woody/vetiver-y
Starts effervescent, drys a bit softer/powdery. Kind of makes me think of warm salty skin…. Like the beach, without smelling like a coconut

you mean like the Kilian names? yeah they do make me snicker (or roll my eyes ) I sometimes wonder who was smoking what to come up with those names...

Today I'm working so I put on Amouage Beloved. I kinda wish I hadn't...lol (don't get me wrong, I love it, but maybe wasn't the best fit for today)
