Great review and I do like it. But I like both Au Dela's that Bruno has concocted so much better.

Great review and I do like it. But I like both Au Dela's that Bruno has concocted so much better.
Masterpiece. A very unique and glorious fragrance. My personal favorite from the Creed line.
Good thought because I just purchased mine last year from Essenza Nobile so I'm sure I have the reformulated version. Pity.
Ormonde man was fine but didn't last on me. Date night scent only. I'm lucky if I get a couple of hours if I spray liberally. Very disappointed with it myself as I was so anxious to get it and wear...
Looks very suspicious indeed.
Original Vetiver is very good like Jack stated. I really like Mono di Orio Vetiver at the moment and sadly hardly mentioned. Lippizan by Parfum de Marly has always had my attention as well.
Red Vetyer is my personal favorite.
Great! This one I will definitely use.
Thank you Hednic. Always nice to get a discount.
Yes, I always enjoyed her descriptive and unique delivery. Sorry to here she has been laying low due to other irons in the fire.
Reflection Man followed by Ciel Man.
My favorite sweet woody oud scent is Woody Intense by Arabian Oud.
Thank you a very detailed synopsis. This has given me food for thought.
The TV ads were great weren't they. Memory lane walk to be sure.
Just got a sample of Puredistance M and I am really liking this one. Never tried Roja Fetish to make a comparison but I'm sure in the upcoming months or years I will I'm sure.
Creed Silver Mountain Water icy tea fruitopia.
You always find they are a whole lot cheaper. The trade off is expediency of the shipping. I have learned to wait with a big smile on my face.
Sorry I missed your post. When shipping to US it does it automatically in the cart. Nice savings indeed.
Receiving mine today. It is out on the local postal route. January 17th to February 19th. I think this is average from EN for me at least. I have built this in to my mentality when purchasing from...
Love it too. A great scent. Orange blossom euphoria.
A very comprehensive and informative descriptive on Bruno new venture. Thanks.
Very interesting indeed. A very good thread to understand local markets interests and wants.
Lumiere Noire is a personal favorite from the house along with Apom. Lucky me I never get the old Lady comments in fact I seem to get you always smell fresh and clean from my office associates. My...
Thanks for the info on the last paragraph I didn't know that. I have a package still in Germany and been waiting for it for two weeks.
Vintage Aramis 900, Chanel Platinum Egoiste & MPG Route de Vetiver
How neat is that. The ever changing landscape of the fragrance industry. Three hard hitters to be sure. Keep us posted.
Thanks socalwoman great buy. Yes mine cost $18.00 also but I usually purchase a few when L'Occitane runs a sale.
Hednic see above. Thanks!
The notes sound enticing indeed. Thanks for the heads up.
This seems to have that Aventus mystic about it. I have seen many threads suggesting Eau des Baux a great fragrance will be discontinued. How could that be when it is their biggest seller and most...
Don't worry I am 11 days in US customs so far perhaps due to the bad weather in the North East. When it starts with a CL it is a domestic code like Hednic postulated. So we are at the mercy of US...
Very glad to hear it. Some excellent values indeed.
I hope to visit the fair isle again in the not to distant future. I grew in Lancashire which now is part of Merseyside.
Glad you liked Arso it is full bottle worthy for me this year. I am interested in Sorriso now after your review. Thanks.
Thanks Hednic got mine yesterday also. I still have some room to explore their inventory but it's always nice to see some newer options in the future.
Appreciate your comment Hednic it means a lot. They have been great for my few forays with them and the customer service & shipping is A-1. Like I may have said before perhaps a few more selections...
+4 Loved my sample. Full bottle on the way from Essenza Nobile
Excellent Move. Congratulations.
Yes and they ship quick. Remember they are a discounter and are abysmal with samples. But prices are the nice surprises for Amouages, Creeds, Lutens & others surprises like Bentley's
I will await all your thoughts. Good luck!
Great read. Thanks for your legwork.
Actually, Bois d'Encens was one of my purchases leading up to this gift card. A very well done composition I'm sure you will love it if that is your choice.
Excellent thoughts on the Derby. If I...
Trying to get my bearings just right. Of the three I am leaning to the Armani because of the impressions of DougCzar over the years. It seems like it wasn't a fly by night scent for him.
I am down to three. Guerlain Derby, Zegna Japenese Pathcouli or Armani Prive Oud Royal. Decisions Decisions!
- - - Updated - - -
Yes. I noticed you said earlier you would...
Yes yahoo! In my e-mail this evening. So many choices.
How was the Derby Remik?
Thanks Duke for the info. I will sample first.
This is the one I want to try. I hear good things about this unsung Malle.
I only had five of them. I must be an outlier. Especially, since I love Platinum.
One spray and wow! So 80's like. This is so unlike anything that I currently have. I have had Bohemian Black in my sights as Blackbird was a stunner. I have that Sexmagic and Epipheny rounding out my...
Congratulations on the Malle purchases. The shipping being uneventful now that's a very different story. But I adjust for that type of thinking now a days. 13 days and still sitting in customs. I...
Thanks rynegne. For some reason I have been going through a floral scent fetish of late so this may hit the sweet spot for me.
Amouage Jubliation XXV, Aventus & Dior Eau Sauvage
Bottle on the way for me from a fellow basenoter. I can't wait.
I have been on the fence buying this one. Very good to know.
I agree. This is a safe and enjoyable workday scent for me.
I love it too. I can only imagine how the original was.
Not sure about others but the Opus benchmark is VI. I find it intriguingly suave and uplifting to the senses a dry amber than brings the burning sands to you. Wonderful!
Very impressive indeed. Thanks for sharing.
Exactly what I have been doing. If you venture to the Netherlands with 21% VAT with a outlet such as Skins and the saving become even more attractive on a big order. EN is a great outlet for...
Thanks PalmBeach. This puts my mind at ease. The MAAI thread itself is a great testimony.
Sadly, I have always been on the fence to try this because of the frequent complaining about longevity on most sites. I just can't bring myself to even be remotely interested if the cost doesn't...
I tend to like that thought and I'm sure not far off the mark.
Smell is the litmus test for me.
I haven't tried it but you had me at slightly reminiscent of Silver Mountain Water. I will now have to explore. I know this line usually has monster longevity so two positives already.
Congrats I hope you enjoy them. I have yet to sample them but hope to in the coming months.
I have an order out at the moment with EN since the 16th. I hope I can have it within 9 days like...
Parfums MDCI Chypre Palatin
I am seriously considering Bogue MAAI if I take a deep breath from the cost per ml.
Thanks Robspace for the heads up. I am sorry you had to go through what you did? The old mantra "if it's to good to be true it probably is".

Memoir woman & Lyric woman in Amouage line are standouts over the male counterparts in my opinion.
Thank you for sharing. A very interesting house of fragrances to be sure. Soul sounds interesting.
Hopefully, if we keep chipping away when we see if they have items in stock during the order process a friendly mention could be in order.
I find the selections on par or exceed other houses of merit. I do agree Un fleur de Cassie is a hidden gem which doesn't seem to garner a lot of attention like others in the lineup receive. Personal...
Me too. I would gladly pay for it with the savings 19% VAT and exchange rate for US residents.
I agree with the above comments. I do hope they make arraignments to bring this to the forefront again. Hopefully, sales would improve.
Sorry you don't care for Silver Mountain Water. It is my favorite Creed for some time and a excellent compliment catcher.
VIW is great for the warmer regions were you reside. I don't mind Royal...
Platinum Egoiste is a staple in my work fragrance arsenal. A winner in my book.
Shipping is the only problem. They are great and the exchange rate beats the socks of Stateside vendors. One of my favorite outlets.
Thanks. I am very fortunate this time around. Although bought for the summer a very nice scent indeed. Big bottle as well fortunate for me after reading the longevity issues. So a re-spray every now...
Love that one.
May I add L'ombre Fauve by Perfumerie Generale
Not achieved 100 bottles just yet but I would speculate 10years plus would be a very good estimate.
I just received mine today. I must say a lot better service this time around. Enjoying MFK Aqua Vitae this evening.
Great scent and a steal for the price.
Great I can't wait to hear what you think of the Profumum.
I have a sample but it is fleeting. I don't think it's full bottle worthy for me. Definitely not in the same ballpark as La Nuit which I have a great relationship with.
It is a winner! A blind buy for me and one that I really love. Pushing Tango as the my favorite from the house. Very good longevity.
My ETA is Wednesday. If this is correct they would have shaved a week and a half of the their last discount promotion.
I love Vanille as you do. Vetyer and Ambre are very well composed and I enjoy. I never really wanted to pay the big bucks for OUD at the time. But I am very happy with the three I mentioned.
This was a pleasant surprise. Very nice indeed.
Yes that is a good estimate. Sometimes more than 12 but not much more. A very good premise is 2 weeks.
Maison Francis Kurdijan Aqua Vitae for a unbelievable price.
Opus VI, Interlude Man & Jubilation XXV are my personal favorites.
Is anyone having trouble getting this one to work. I have e-mailed Claire numerous times and nothing is working for me. Perhaps it only works on Blackbird my previous purchase and not newer...
I do need them! Thanks Hednic.
Aqua Vitae seems to have mixed reviews do you like the accords? Also, another question mark is its longevity being all over the board.
Thanks Socialwoman MFK Aqua Vitae for half price is a very good deal but I know it will take forever to receive any feedback on if I got it in time. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though and sweat it...
Yes. EDP is a really good one. I'm sure the longevity would be worth the backup in its self.
Bentley for men Intense
I have to admit I am a Creed Fan boy. But I have many other mistresses in the fragrance world.
These are all excellent.
Let me add
For the longest time Interlude Man from Amouage held that title until I discovered Norne by Slumberhouse.
Eau Sauvage for personal reasons.
CD Eau Sauvage
OC Silver Mountain Water
TF Tobacco Vanille
