Sourpuss, again...Xerjoff Dhofar, Modoc and Tobacco Oroville
Maybe it's the birthday blahs. This weekend I turn 103 (I know, I don't look a day over 70!) and I'm crabby. So it's with some ennui that I am seeing another company come out with 12 or so scents, stratospherically priced. Not they are bad mind you...
Dhofar is a pleasant, gentlemanly citrus that starts with a hint of cumin. Hint is the operative word, this isn't Eau d'Hermes. It then gets lavender somewhat along the lines of Mouchoir de Monsieur. That is, if MdeM had all the life sucked out of it.
Modoc is sweet lemons and vanilla amber. Vanilla in both senses: it smells vanilla and it is> vanilla, if you get my drift. Light vetiver and lighter musk join in later. It smells...nice.
Tobacco Oroville has a bunch of stuff in it. Tobacco, Galbanum, sage, blah, blah. On me it smells somewhat like Opus Oils Dirty Sexy Wilde just not dirty or sexy.
Eau d'Hermes is $120 for 3.3 oz at Hermes
Mouchoir de Monsieur is $71.80 for 3.4 oz at Amazon
Dirty Sexy Wilde is $50 for 1 oz at Opus Oils website
These are $345 for 50ML at LuckyScent
Nest week I promise to be in a better mood...
