    Re: Fragrances!

    Can't say I'm a fragrance hobbyist, but I did just go through an extended period of dipping into it. My longstanding signature scent got reformulated (Royall Muske), leaving it with absolutely zero staying power.

    That launched me on a 2-month long search for a new scent. I tried everything. I've probably got 150-200 samples tucked away. And I still haven't really found anything I'm happy with as a true signature scent, like I was with the old Royall Muske. What I'm going with for now is a combination of Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza, Penhaligon's Opus and Sartorial, Bogart Pour Homme, and occasionally some Encre Noire or Terre d'Hermes.

    I was pretty happy with the latter two, initially, which is why I went ahead and bought bottles. Then I read a review of TdH that described it as smelling like "bug spray." Kinda ruined it. I don't think it smells like bug spray, but there's a bug spray note in there, and once you smell it you can't unsmell it. (It's like those compact rear-projection tvs that used the spinning RGB wheel that caused some people to see "rainbows" on the screen. If you never saw them, the technology worked great for you. But after you saw them once, you could never unsee them.)

    So AdP and Penhaligon's are my main scents right now, but if anybody knows of something similar to the old Royall Muske, I'm all ears. :)

    Notino (formerly Beauty Spin) is another really good one. Scent Split is okay, but I hate the vials they use.

    Anyone else here a fraghead? What are your experiences with colognes, perfumes, etc.?

    I used to be a member of basenotes, but I decided it was evil and that there wasn't much to talk about in the first place, so I got myself banned. I still love it though.

    I was right!

    And, boy, it is extraordinary. It may be my favorite of the Tom Ford collection. It wears so nicely.
