Today I'm wearing M. Micallef Gaïac (aren't you just loving the "i" with the two dots?) and it's so damn sweet. It's both masculine and sweet, which I don't love. I love sweet scents like By Kilian Love, which is sweeter than Gaïac, but when male scents are sweet, they either smell incongruous or they smell like rotting persimmons. Gaïac smells like rotting persimmons. And you know what that means. Yes, that means I smell like rotting persimmons. Try getting a mini-boner over that.
I warned you after-the-fact about Gaïac. Though I didn't detect anything as 3-D as sweet decay. I just thought it wasn't either Martha or Arthur.
Thanks for the after-the-fact warning about Gaïac. Maybe you can try to get ahold of Michael Jackson. Warn him about his doctor.
Okay, that was mean. I’m sorry. Maybe it's time to try another perfume. I'll go with Le Labo Labdanum 18. Oh gosh, that's much sweeter and heavier than I thought it would be. I should've only sprayed once.
It's kind of a little sickening, no? Do you say this in your review? Do you say, "Ooh, this one is kind of a little sickening"? I've gotta hope this softens into something different than what I'm experiencing right now or I fear I'm going to cut my arms off just to escape.
I'm getting lots of powder, lots of super-sweet amber (as opposed to dark toasty amber), and lots of feelings of self-loathing. This is the one you warned me about, isn't it? Another one of those warnings after-the-fact. Though it was my own fault. I asked your opinion then had my order in within three minutes.
Okay, I'm not liking this at all and it feels like my body is about to reject it. Oh no, I just looked it up in Perfumes: The Guide. It's a Roucel scent. That's why it reminds me of Musc Ravageur. It's a slightly more cloying but slightly less gross Musc Ravageur.
And now my arms are turning maroon where I sprayed! My body IS rejecting it. I was kidding and now my worst nightmare is coming true! Next time I'll wait to hear your opinion before I buy.
Yes, L-18 comes on like gangbusters. It's trashy and horny, but does mellow out as it swaggers along. And I neither steered you towards or away from it, other than to constantly say how much I loved it. I was a little concerned when you ordered a sample, though, because of it being in the Musc Ravageur family, and that one didn't exactly tickle your pickle.
I fell asleep before it mellowed so I'll have to try it again. But I did understand its appeal after a few minutes. It smells sexy but sexy in a way I'd prefer a woman to smell, not me.
That's the confusion of being a man who wears perfume: I occasionally come across something that feels like putting on a dress. (No, I'm not speaking from actual experience.) My pickle is tickled but it's not the right kind of tickle and I feel self-conscious and suddenly realize I need to get out more. That's L-18 in a nutshell for me.
