Things I have smelled lately

All perfumes, people, nothing gross:
  • Love, Chloe: Smells exactly, photorealistically like honey at first, then turns into a bathroomy talc scent.
  • Miller Harris Geranium Bourbon: Gorgeous rich rose and geranium scent on a dark background. "Want."
  • Bond No. 9 Washington Square: Super boring guy scent. Next.
  • Bond No. 9 New Haarlem: This is supposed to smell like coffee, but instead I get bacon with maple syrup drizzled on top. Kind of hilarious.
  • Roberto Cavalli Oro: Like the above breakfast scent, this is by Maurice Roucel, whose perfumes always have a sense of humor or least a sense of trashy. Reminds me very much of eggnog (a smell I like).
  • Lolita Lempicka au Masculin: This is really good and only tenuously masculine. Strange how I hate the black licorice taste but like licorice notes in perfume. Mega-fugly bottle.
  • Acqua di Gioia: Only smelled this one on paper, but all I got was grapefruit. Disappointing, since I'd heard mojito.
  • Shalimar Ode a la Vanille: Only smelled this one on paper too, since it seemed to have a whopping dose of the dreaded woody amber. Why!
  • Paco Rabanne Lady Million and Gucci Guilty: Can't remember the difference. They were both way too sweet.
  • Ormonde Jayne Woman: Gorgeous mossy woods and amber. Want.
  • Natori: Sexy plummy musky thing. Kinda want.
