heir to Fahrenheit
A bit of a tease, this one.  The gasoline/leather top notes  give the expectation of a true gas-pump fantasy. But along with gasoline’s scent, Nostalgia has gasoline’s volatility.  Still, the crackly woody drydown of Nostalgia is a wonderful scent in its own right, top notes or not. And for those of you who like woody fragrances but don't want a warm, harmonious feeling, Nostalgia remains fairly cool, carrying the chill of evaporation that gasoline has on your skin.

Two thoughts. One, this is an interesting option for those still mourning the loss of Fahrenheit’s original formulation. Two, Nostalgia points out that in the language of perfumery, gasoline is a woody note.

savory kerosene
At first, this has a big hit of fuel (not quite gasoline - maybe more like kerosene) that's odd but not displeasing. When it dries down, it becomes smoky-spicy-savory. It's a denser Bulgari Black with more soul. If you're a fan of BBlack's odd rubber or Lonestar Memories'pungent smoke, you'll probably like this. Unfortunately, this doesn't last long on me, but I don't mind spraying it often to enjoy that delicious drydown over again. (If only it weren't so expensive...) (020911)
