    Re: I'm done with Bond No. 9

    I feel your pain, OP.

    I'm not from West Virginia, but I'm from a very small, rural town in southwest Virginia, and there are literally no places closeby to sample fragrances. One must drive a...

    I usually wait at least 30-45 minutes. It seems as though in the past, if I've applied a fragrance earlier than that, the fragrance isn't applied to the skin properly and dies out as opposed to...

    My decant is of the C42B12E01, but when everyone refers to e01, they seem to be referring to A42B12E01 batch. I'm guessing it's basically the exact same,...

    You can wear ANYTHING as your signature scent. Do as you please. As with anything, just be mindful of a fragrance's potential 'power' and adjust the sprays accordingly.
