Hermes Terre D'Hermes
Lorenzo Villoresi Sandalo

Creed Virgin Island Water
Lorenzo Villoresi Incensi
Lorenzo Villoresi Musk Oil
Lorenzo Villoresi Piper Nigrum
I'm excited to try more Villoresi, but I'm really eager to try Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille: "vanilla, spices, benzoin, frankincense, cedar, pink pepper, bergamot, Bulgarian rose and ylang ylang." It sounds like a combination of two or three of my favorite scents.
Hahah, now I'm really intrigued about A*Men. How do you feel about gourmand scents in general?
I hope GIT doesn't smell too much like Aspen... I've smelled that one in a few drugstores.
I'm slowly making my way through the samples and I just put on Hermes Terre d'Hermes. WOW. I'm loving the orange element in the top notes. This fragrance smells like what the mall store scents (Banana Republic, Abercrombie, Hollister) are trying but failing to achieve. There is a slightly synthetic note, but it makes the scent smell more contemporary. I'll keep my nose on it throughout the night--I'm eager to see how it dries down. So far, a winner.
