    I haven't done one of these in a while and it's kinda late at night. I have to wake up in about 4 hours. Also, I have to give some of these fragrances a fair chance before my verdicts on each one. I like acquiring decants from kind people who'll provide me with some that are a little more difficult to get just because they aren't sold at Sephora (where I get most of my mainstream released samples).
