    Default Pierre Cardin Centuare Cuir Blanc (vintage 1996) - Wednesday



    Accords: earthy, woody, leather, tobacco, animalic
    Notes: Leather, Vetiver, Oak Moss, Tobacco, Black Fig, Citruses

    Definitely get the leather and tobacco and they are quite well balanced also. There is an underlying sweetness which smells like vanilla to me which may be coming from the fig and citrus. Like I have stated in the past, I don't care for sweet gourmands like vanilla in my frags, but if they stay in the background they can be tolerable. Centuare Cuir Blanc projects well and is non-offensive, that is until it begins turning powdery on skin after 6 hours.

    The only thing I see in the notes which looks like it could turn powdery is oak moss, but I don't usually have much of a problem with that one. I don't know if it is a blessing or a curse that many frags turn powdery on my skin. The advantage is that it helps narrow the field of choices. The disadvantage is that I must weed through them. Just because a frag contains notes which can turn powdery on my skin does not guarantee that they will, but it's weeks like this that tempt me to stick with simple woody frags without any powdery notes that might ruin it for me.

    Ivan made me do it! I saw him post about this one and immediately picked up a bottle:

    I'm liking it very much. It wears close to the skin, but your description of the scent was spot on!

    Default Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe

    I like the spicy, boozy, ambery opening of this Ambre Russe. It's relatively inexpensive for a niche scent at $75 for 50ml EdP, so I hope it wears well today.

    Oriscent's Kyara Koutan layered over ASAQ's Blue Ambergris.

    I was wearing a combination very similar to this a few weeks ago while out w/some friends. One of the guys said, "It smells like roach spray in here." He had no idea I was the exterminator....

    I'm prob gonna see that same guy tonight -- looking forward to his comments...
