When I first started getting seriously into fragrance, people kept recommending to me Armani Code. For some reason it never clicked. I know Acqua di Gio is the men's bestseller, but it leaves me cold.
So it's kind of surprising to me that so far two in the Armani Privé line have made it into my collection. They're a bit pricey and for a while unavailable. Last year I got Myrrhe Impériale. I've been watching out for Bois d'Encens (100ml) for the past eight years, but never picked it up. Boys in Basenotes used to claim that they were able to pick it up at Marshalls or TJ Maxx. I was never so lucky.
Notino recently had it for basically half off so I finally got it.
I also picked up a bunch of L'Artisans.... some for gifts later in the year. For myself I got L'Été en Douce (100 ml). Not really all that nuts about it. I recently tried Glacialis Terra I kept thinking it reminded me of something.... and this is it!
I also got a tiny (5 ml) bottle of Providence Perfume Company Cocoa Tuberose. It's ok. Yet another Nestlé's Quik kind of scent. I smell no tuberose. This bottle was, ml per ml, more expensive than an Amouage!
