Gucci Pour Homme

As a follow up to my previous post on sexy mens fragrances, yesterday I had to run into Sephora and took the time to smell a few of the mens fragrances they had available. I found two that I really liked, one of which I’m wearing now: Gucci’s pour homme woody spicy fragrance.

I can’t smell enough of this stuff, and it’s rather intoxicating. I’m very curious to hear what girls have to say about it. I really can’t begin to explain how it smells, for its a mix of very sensual smells, so from Gucci’s website we get:

  • top note of ginger
  • heart note of papyrus
  • base note of olibanum
…if that explains anything. I have one more to try, which I also liked at Sephora, which is John Varvatos’ Vintage. I will keep my interested reader informed on how I enjoy that smell.
What are your thoughts on Gucci’s pour homme?

Carrot and Yam Soup

Today to break my fast (which you can read more about here), I decided to try my hand at a delicious vegetable soup. It consisted of:

  • 2 large yams
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1/3 cup barley
  • 1/2 cup split lentils
  • 3 slices onions
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • oregano
  • paprika
  • ginger
  • nutmeg
  • chili powder
  • bay leaf
  • salt/pepper
  • spoon of butter

It totally fit the bill, and I was licking the bowl afterwards it was so good!
