In which I violate my own rule and make snap judgements.
I put on the J'ai Ose, and feel like I'm not done until a Band-Aid goes over it. What *is* that note? Bactine?
On the other arm, 10 Corso Como is all "aw, come snorfle." Sandalwood peeking through a not too sweet viscous cirrus cloud, just over my skin.
If I stopped now, it would have been done. J'ai Ose would have been scrubbed, 10 Corso Como would have been entered in the "try to trade for some" list. But already J'ai Ose is morphing, settling down into something...is that woody? wth? Meanwhile, 10 Corso Como is staying true to its (initial) fashion...
Now J'ai has gone undercover, very very low key...poor 10 Corso now seems loud...these simultaneous runs can be tough on the participants.
I'm not done, but it seems like J'ai is going to win the second date award, while 10 Corso becomes a back pocket "sure if you find it cheap snap it up because it's a comfort scent but you'll get tired of too much of it." Life is so unfair. I don't even know if I *like* J'ai, but I'll come back. Meanwhile, 10 Corso continues to do what it promised...and is set aside.
Must return to each, separately, for another experience, and a fuller treatment.
