    I confirm the vintage "Coriandre" in "Parfum" concentration.
    An olfactive bomb deployed all over!
  93. Re: Givenchy Vetyver - Not much chatter, no love?

    As Luca Turin says, it could be the "reference vetiver".
    I sampled it, and (IMHO), it's not only one of the best vetiver, but one of the "TopTen" best perfumes ever produced on Earth (repeat IMHO)

  98. Re: Dissecting an (extraordinary) rare gem: "ETTORE BUGATTI" first version (The Original, 1992)

    Since "Bugatti" vintage perfume was never produced in big quantities, and since its quality is so high, well, I strongly suggest to grab all bottles you find. Prices are still affordable.
