    Re: Monsieur Balmain vs Acqua Viva

    Re: Most prolific or common note?

  95. Re: Can I get a recommendation on fresh lemon fragrance?

  100. Re: So why are the prices so much lower on Fragrancenet over other places like Luckyscents?

    I completely understand where you are coming from...in some cases, but, again, the thing that I pointed out before is that you really don't deserve a discount and you have no right to demand one...
