    Re: New Slumberhouse Fragrance: Sådanne

    After sampling this on Friday and reflecting on it, for me its a effervescent prosecco with acerbic berries. Real different, in a good way.

    Re: New Slumberhouse Fragrance: Sådanne

    I stopped by Alder & Co today to pick up Iris de Nuit. One of the associates said they will have Sadanne a few days from now on Tuesday, the 19th.

    Re: Creed EROLFA review

    I'm ambivalent on Erolfa. A very nice aquatic, but I prefer Millesime Imperial for that role. However, the later development is distinct from all the other millesimes.
