    Testing Eau Premiere from the new, square bottle, haven't compared it side by side with the other Premiere but so far, I can't tell a huge difference...perhaps it's just a tad bit sweeter, slightly...

    Happy 10k Jon!!!

    Thanks to a BN buddy, sampling Vol de Nuit parfum, I like it....kinda reminds me of a Weil scent but perhaps a bit more floral and less animalic. Woody.
