    I bought samples of all of them and, like any house, there are some I like and some I dislike. My favs are Falling into the Sea and Yesterday Haze followed by Memoirs, Soft Lawn and Mosaic. I'll pass...

    Re: Three new Fragrances by Kilian

    I've had pretty good luck getting samples from them except for the Bond's, which they seem to hoard. However, this is the first time I've received samples from them by mail.

    Re: Help me pick a Vetiver that lasts

    These are some great recommendations however, I would add Vetiver Fatal from Atelier to the list as a very nice vetiver fragrance.

    Re: how important is bottle design for you

    Doesn't matter to me what the bottle looks like. It's all about the juice. I do understand some people's attraction to bottle design though. To each his own, I guess.

    Re: What's the one ingredient you hate?

    I'm leery of most florals. tuberose and jasmine, in particular.
  10. Re: Okay, so Kilian charges $100 JUST for the bottle/box/packaging ?!

    Refills come with 50ml of juice, a 10ml atomizer (empty) and a metal funnel for decanting.

    Re: Tuscan Leather

    You make some good points but are in error regarding some others: First, Z-14 smells like Italian Cypress NOT TL, and you're right about the quality difference between IT and z-14 however, I...

    Re: Tuscan Leather

    I like both TL and AdQ Colonia Leather but if you like Italian Cypress, consider Halston z-14 instead. They smell the same to my nose and the z-14 can be picked up for a lot less than IC. I picked...

    Re: Heeley - Vetiver Veritas

    I haven't tried it yet but I see that it comes in a 50ml size. I wish Heeley would offer all of their frags in this size. If they did, I actually might buy a bottle instead of going the decant route.

    My advice, and it's just that, is to sample as many fragrances as you can so you can get an idea about the types or frags (or notes) you really like and those you don't care for. Personally, I enjoy...

    It's going to be difficult to find the two Ford's you're looking for on a discount site but, as a previous poster suggested, a split isn't a bad idea. TL and TV are split quite often on some sites. I...

    Chergui and TV are completely different. If you want a great tobacco frag, Phaedon's Tabac Rouge is a good choice and you can get a 3.3 oz. on Lucky Scent for $160. However, if you do decide to get...
