SOTD - Trying my other Alexandria fragrance today - Dubai Lifestyle.
Performance on this was just average. Pleased with the smell/notes, but it's very close to the skin for me now.

I really like Eros, but I don't think it's super office safe, might be a bit too sweet smelling, but anywhere else, definitely nice

Summer/Spring : I am looking at picking up Creed MI and/or Creed VIW

Both get real good reviews as warm weather scents, however both are expensive.

I have also tossed around the idea of getting some 30ml sprays from Perfume Parlour. They basically take frags and have them analyzed by gas-liquid chromatography to make clones.

I am sure DUA and Alexandria likely do the exact same thing. The positive for PP is their prices are way cheaper. Might be a good option to check out some of the high end scents. Killian, Nasomato, Creed, etc. There is no way I will even own all the stuff I'd like based on $$$$.

SOTD - CAHSEE
I notice people doing double-takes quite often when I'm out in public with this one ... I get these looks sometimes like I have a monkey on my back lol. Another fine creation by the master Jacques Polge

I've also wondered about perfume parlour. I've heard mixed things about them (like anybody else I guess). As with all the cloners, some are better and some are worse. I seem to remember Mr Smelly comparing a couple in a review for either Alexandria or Dua.

This hobby definitely adds up quickly.
