Hmmm, I can understand your reservations. This scent is just driving me crazy.... I know I have encountered it before and I don't know why but I think of this smell as something synthetic. Somehow it reminds me of naphthalene or something of that nature. I am not even sure if it is a synthetic smell, I just think of it as such. The funniest and the sickest thing is that I really like the smell LOL. Not knowing what it is or where I encountered it in the past is like not being able to remember a word or a name that you know you used to know and it is somehow on the tip of your tongue. Anyway, I want to thank you for the reply. I will try to manage and figure it out. Should you ever need anything, feel free to contact me at any time, I would be happy to be of any assistance. I don't have an opportunity to check my messages here too often. You can always e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me at 917 584-6573.

Thanks for all your reviews! In the midst of them all special thanks for your review of English Leather (the reformulation). Have come to conclude that this new EL is one the most underrated scents in any category.
First, I absolutely admire your reviews and find them illuminating and educational. Second, I was wondering if I could ask for your help. There is a scent, which you, as an expert that you are, may not even consider anything worth of your time. However, there is a note in this scent that I have encountered before in some higher end scents that remember form years ago. This note is driving me absolutely crazy. The scent I am referring to is by Michel Design Works. There was a line of Verbena products. The middle note / drydown display a somewhat synthetic, chemical, naphthalene note that I recall from somewhere and absolutely love but cannot place. Are you familiar with the scent? Probably not, it's not a well-known or popular or a really high-end brand... :-( Furthermore, this particular line has been discontinued, it appears. If you were willing to give it a sniff, I would be very happy to mail you a sample of this stuff. You are my last hope.... Thank you for your time and attention.
can you please tell where od do you buy your perfumes over the web?
I would like to buy L'Anarchiste und Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic.
On the original web sites (Caron Paris und Guerlain) I haven't found sell
option, and there is also big difference in price between official retailers and
ebay or amazon. I reside now in Germany.
Thank you in advance,
PS tremendous!! reviews, thank you very much!
You are exceptional.
Your reviews are simply amazing.
Sir, gentleman, could I ask you what you think of Xeryus Rouge?

Tova for Men and Eau de Rochas Pour Homme are two of my favorite fragrances
And I am slowly getting towards trying the Frederic Malle and Acqua di Parma lines, thanks for the feedback!
foetidus, your thorough and intricate reviews that bring out the beauty in each fragrance have definitely inspired my reviews, maybe someday we'll be neck and neck for the most reviews
I had one question: What are your favorite citrus scents/which ones last the longest for you?
Thanks in advance!
Congratulations on 2000 reviews - and very good ones they are too!
