A few weeks back, I ordered a couple of things, which came last week.
First, I got Serge Lutens Five O'Clock au Gingembre. I was thinking it was close to Tea For Two. However, they really don't resemble each other much, with the Serge being more along the lines of Daim Blond than I remember....
I was really in the mood for tea, so I also ordered Gucci Pour Homme II, which I remember being a nice tea scent. However, I was very disappointed with it when it arrived, It smells a lot more chemical than I remember it. Maybe it's been reformulated. Sadly, Gucci Pour Homme (I) is nowhere to be found. I do have a sample of that.
The Gucci bottle is kind of impressive. You could probably kill someone with it, it's so heavy. A murder weapon in a Peckinpah film (I'm thinking of the use of the telephone at the beginning of The Naked Kiss).
From another store, I ordered a travel set of Amouage Gold Man, which was relatively cheap. The one ounce of juice will probably last me a lifetime. Gold still has that opening which could peel paint off a wall, but I've always liked the drydown a lot.
I also ordered Epic Man shower gel, which was really impressively packaged. I never would think of giving someone shower gel for a gift, but the packaging is so nice I might do that in the future. I should have gotten some Christmas presents along those lines. Now it's too late, alas, to order online in time for Christmas.
Maybe I'm easily impressed.
