Got a bunch of Floris samples to test so far the result is:

Hits: Leather Oud - XXX, Honey Oud - sweet, Mahon Leather - well behaved ie not hairy biker leather

Misses: JF, No 89, Elite, nah, not for me, true I am an old geezer but these scents smell even older to my nose

Still to test: Santal, Limes, Special No 127, Cefiro, Palm Springs, there should have been one more to make it a total of twelve but eleven will do

edit re Mahon Leather: moved from hit to miss, still an interesting scent but come to the conclusion I am mainly enjoying the mid part of a Mahon Leather day

Elite and 127 are my favourites with 89 very close behind.

Elite is your typical Azaro, Paco Rebanne, Brut aromatic fougere.

127 is a citrus floral. Distinguished stuff.

89 is a masculine rose. Rose is always masculine.

No.89 is quite dandy, I like it but am neither mature nor sophisticated enough to pull it off... Yet. Jermyn St. would be good if it weren't for the abysmal longevity, it's an aftershave strength EdP :confused:

Hits: Leather Our and Honey Oud. Also thumbs up for Santal not my kind of scent but I can appreciate the quality. Misses: all the rest that to me seem to be built on smelling fresh and clean or gentleman straight from visit to barber shop (hiding any natural odours) whereas I would prefer scent to add some interest to my otherwise rather bland personality (when close enough) :)

Had forgotten Palm Springs: jury is still out on that one, not fresh and clean to start with, need to give it a couple of hours...

edit: not pleasant at all, so a miss it is.

(found one more small bag of samples so next up is Acca Kappa week)
