    Mysterious and melancholic; the scent plays out like a dream.

  3. Harrods Swarovski Limited Edition

    Dear Friends from Basenotes,

    Does anyone know if it is possible to obtain a sample of this unknown scent from Bond no 9?

    I live in Manchester and won`t be down in London till October 2010 so unable to pop into Harrods till then.

    Thanks very much indeed

    Kind regards

    Delrae Coup de Foudre - It's really nice (though ending is lackluster) but for the money they're asking I'd rather buy a Rosine.
    Chanel Bois des Iles - Dry sandalwood, doesn't last on me. Not bad but not ~revelatory~ or anything.
    TDC Bois d'Iris - Holy christ baby powder.
    Guerlain Vetiver pour Elle - Starts off lovely with florals smoothing out that bitter vetiver edge, but then the bitterness takes over anyway, so really there's no need to own ...
