Sorry, this is sold. I forgot that this was still here from back then. My apologies.

Not even close to Richwood. Not sweet or floral in any regard.
There's a good shop as well in The Cosmopolitan (can't remember the name) that has a good selection of some Amouage, Montale, MFK, and some others. Other than that, Vegas perfume shopping is...
Entirely true, it's just for someone who does not want to send things electronically, it's either that or mail a check, which amount to the same level of privacy either way. Without electronic...
Another option would be USPS money order. It's slow, and it takes extra time, but at least there's a level of security as you need identification to cash it and only costs something like $0.85 for...
Well, theyve reformulated Fierce a bazillion times, the current one smells nothing like its original formulation when it came out in 2002.
PMed you, Tiepolo - let me know if you got it.
A synthetic mess of chemical-ish notes.
Where did you find the Slumberhouse bottles still for $125? As far as I can tell they're all $160 now at all retailers. I'm trying to organize an Ore split elsewhere, and can't find the bottles...
Two spots left in Patchouli Absolu
I have to agree. CK has been far more adept at putting out generic crowd pleasers that the old ladies at Macy's can push like wildfire to "Hey Calvin Klein, that's a high end brand!" customers as...
Thanks for these updates!
The original is quite different from the other three. Cashmere and Velvet are in the same vein - that "stanky" kind of oud, very raw but if you're into that kind of oud, they're great...
I've known heperd (Jon) on here and through Facebook for a while, he's been doing this for many years now so this is very, very surprising that suddenly he's fallen off the map. I sent him a message...
Added new Byredo - Mojave Ghost
Simple answer, no. JN is excellent, excellent juice.
Both my Black Saffron and Bal D'Afrique bottles smell the same as the samples I'd received before the company shift. Also had not heard they sold a majority stake.
Yes, Scentbar is an authorized dealer. All TF scents across the board have been weakened. The bottle you smelled at Bloomingdales may have been older stock. Estee Lauder has watered down the...
Got you for it, Xavier! I'll be in touch when the release date is closer and I have a more exact date.
New Tom Ford added.
They're given out when the stores have them available, which isn't always too frequent.
None open currently.
Where are these (lab samples?) available? In Neimans?
Another plus one for them, excellent service all around every time I've ordered from them. Wonderful people as well.
Expensive, but Une Nuit a Doha from SHL 777 is something you should look into trying. Very well done pipe tobacco with a sweet top.
Don't buy into the apparent reviews that Mandarino is a Neroli clone, it's not. There's absolutely no neroli or soapiness to be found in it.
Got you for both! I'll be in touch when they're full and there's a solid release date on them here! Should be later this month.
New TF releases added
Added the SHL 777 split.
Are you sure you meant to say Splendid Woods and Rose D'Arabie are similar, instead of YSL's Majestic Rose and Rose d'Arabie? Splendid Woods smells nothing like RdA. That said, SW is excellent,...
Demand subsided when they released it permanently and stuck it everywhere.
Tobacco Oud still available. Quality juice here, don't overlook it!
Amber Aoud is full and paid for, no juice is left available. Tobacco Oud is still available.
Ha! I had the TF guy at Bloomies there tell me the only difference between Oud Fleur and Tobacco Oud was the swapping of rose and tobacco. I barely held back my laughter.
EDPs: $285 -> $325
Extraits: $365 -> $395
Parfums (Pour Homme/Femme): $435 -> $480
Aouds: $435 -> $480 for 30 ml and $665 -> for 100 ml
Absolu Precieux: $990 -> $1,25
Neither are really that similar to B2B, but both are excellent fragrances. Worth a try for both.
Just an FYI to the OP, Luckyscent does indeed have free shipping, use code MUA. Both stores are solid places from which to order.
Added NUWA, Tobacco Oud, M/Mink
Anyone have any issues with the atomizers on these bottles or have an idea how to fix the following problem?
My Danger EDP bottle has now twice completely broken. I sent it back to Osswald and...
Updated splits, removed the MFK for now, Danger and Aoud are in process, Musk Aoud, Amber Aoud, and Fetish are available to be had.
Took down Byredos, added a bunch of Roja Parfums splits.
Looking for empty or very little remaining 50 ml bottles of Kilian's Back To Black and Straight To Heaven. Doesn't have to have the coffin, but it'd be nice.
Unfortunately not, both are full. I'll be opening different ones soon.
- - - Updated - - -
Added MFK Oud Silk and Velvet Mood, and Byredo's Accord Oud and M/Mink.
I've had problems with these recently (and I do go to the gym!) since they've gone to the all rubber interior plug. Try taking a butter knife and wedging it in the crack between the bottle and...
So basically, you're just here to find people that agree with your original point and ignore anyone who presents credible reasons why their view of a fragrance, simply because it happens to be the...
Opened Kilian's Apple Brandy and MFK's Absolue Pour le Soir.
No, the juice is the same.
I have to agree, this one, like all of the other New York scents, smells very similar to the others, and is a bit redundant to own imo, if you own one of the others. NY Amber is the best of the...
Unless it comes in red packaging and has no lines on the cap, the juice will likely be the same. This is an example: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/419VGPYP4EL._SL290_AA290_.jpg
The juice is exactly the same to my nose.
Tobacco Oud and Oud Fleur are all set and done - the remaining Oud Fleur splits will be shipped Monday, 11/25.
Rose d'Arabie opened!
It did work for me in that someone else saw my request and happened to have the member's email and passed it along to me. But I can see that it wouldn't be helpful for split buyers who don't visit...
You could, and as of yesterday there are no LP bottles, brown or silver, of any kind there as the scent has been discontinued.
200 ml Rose Anonyme bottle with box, 20% full - $50 shipped in the US
No swaps please.
Splashfrag, if you're looking for a slot in a Tobacco Oud split, I can help you with that. PM me or email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rusteejuxx - Please PM me, I'm collecting payments for the splits of Oud Fleur and Tobacco Oud that you had reserved, and your profile is set to not receive PMs. I need these payments to continue...
Rusteejuxx - please contact me immediately, I'm collecting payments for my Tobacco Oud and Oud Fleur splits that you had reserved, and I need payment to go forth with the split. Currently, it's not...
Unfortunately, the Atelier bottles do not cost enough to qualify for a split per Basenotes rules. Gold Leather is excellent juice, though.
Yes, it's been in and out of stock online there. I try to avoid buying these flacons online since the tops of the flacon are not completely airtight, and I have heard of a couple of cases of leakage...
Tom Ford - Patchouli Absolu
PLEASE NOTE - This juice is slated to be released in the US in early October, so I would not be collecting money until that point. This is only a pre-reservation. ...
I do not find Noir de Noir and Noir to be similar in any way.
What he said. Only thing I'd add is don't be afraid to say the name of what you're wearing if asked, it's nothing to be shy about. If the person wants to look it up and find out much it costs,...
Yeah, the purples are the Jardin Noirs. I'd heard rumblings a few months back that they were considering axing it. Apparently, they're selling TERRIBLY. I think Cafe Rose is the only one that's...
So, what were the discontinuations she mentioned other than Oud Wood? I really hope it's not more ouds. Enough of this already. At least maybe it will finally spell the end of the atrocity that...
Reverie Au Jardin from Tauer. Also great in the longevity department.
I've also seen 100 ml of Black Violet, and they're now producing 100 ml's of Jasmin Rouge and Neroli Portofino.
I've never seen a 100 ml IC bottle, they do not produce the 100 ml's for all of the PB's, only the top sellers, of which IC is not one. That said, I've never once had a problem with any of my TF...
The endless Aventus threads have made BN virtually unreadable.
I actually don't like Cashmere and Velvet. Both smell EXTREMELY similar from the two testers I got samples from, and both dry down into this really, really odd musk that I don't like. Silk is...
re: the cost too much to produce story. I heard the same thing from the fragrance manager at the Neimans I shop at, who explained a bit further was that her theory was that it was too much to...
what's the fragrantica member's name? maybe notify the mods there too?
it is 100 ml, ive measured it out before. the bottle itself holds more than 100 ml of liquid too, so it's not full to the top.
Harrods and NY Amber are indeed identical juices, NY is just a stronger concentration. Other than that, identical. As stated, Amber Absolute and NY Amber are really nothing alike at all.
That's an aftermarket roll on sample. Someone bought the roll on vial and just filled it and made their own label. There's a seller on eBay who does this. The font on that label is wrong too,...
Oh, TF is quite generous with samples and what not, the rep at my store is by far the most helpful I've run into anywhere, and has been beyond generous. It's that the company does not stock the...
They don't do this anymore, at least in the states. Occasionally, they stock the stores with atomizers, but it's rare and they run out extraordinarily fast. While it would seem like it might be...
Of the ones listed by the OP, the only ones I'd be careful with overspraying are NY Amber and Success Is a Job In NY.
You're describing "that Bond smell" that seems to exist in 95% of their juices. It is that odd fruit/musk/floral combination you describe that tends to royally suck.

Did Kilian go exclusive to Bergdorf in the NYC?
Here's a good explanation: http://www.gildedlife.com/2010/08/what-is-the-difference-between-eau-de-parfum-and-eau-de-toilette-in-perfumes-and-colognes/ It doesn't give specifics for EDT, but...
Price for EACH absolue 6.7 oz is $1,500? If so, ridiculous. EDT is $2.35/ml, Absolue (assume to be EDP?) is $7.50? Nope.
ugh, more oud?
1 Million AG is pure perfume, not EDP. I find it to be quite similar to the original, but a more smooth around the edges version of it. I don't see owning both as necessary because they're really...
I do not get any similarity at all between NdN and Noir.
There must be different batches of this as there is absolutely no way anyone could smell the tester I sampled and not think it's the same as A*Men. They were literally identical, to the point I had...
Either Marshalls Back Bay, or the Marshalls/TJMaxx at Downtown Xing. Hit or miss at both sites but if I were betting on it, I'd put money on the better selection at Back Bay.
This has been the only stinker I've run into so far from his house, smells like Pez to my nose.
Saw two Mugler Angel Liqeuer du Parfums for $50 a piece.
Amyris is a good one, worth a try. What alfarom said is a good list, though I'm not an AU fan myself. Don't waste your time with the Colognes, go for the Absolues of both for sure. And Lumiere...
I'd be very interested in an Extreme version. Were you saying the sticker price on the supposed extreme is 85 for 50 ml?
I've been posting on quite a few free forums for many years, and none have had the lengthy server issues that this one has had, nothing even close. I've considered becoming a supporting member, but...
I'll sniff it if I run into it, but I'm imagining citrus/aquatic/slightly herbal blah. They took a nice step with Loud but seem to have regressed back into the doldrums of...
Ahhhhh, now your comments make sense, especially since Black Orchid is technically women's perfume :P.
Maybe we're smelling two different things, you sure you're not talking about noir de noir? I cannot fathom any interpretation of noir as old or middle aged woman perfume. There's civet in it! If...
