    Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir - Where is it???

    Supposedly this was released on June 4 but none of the normal US retailers of Dior men's fragrances have this. Does anyone know where this can be found in the US? Or any online retailers that ship...
  98. Anyone try the new Richard James Fragrances

    These are the new ones recently released as a series of three colognes (lavender, vetiver and cardamom)? Any comments would be appreciated.

    Re: New Gendarme EdeP

    I was told by Topper at Gendarme many years ago that Carriere (marketed toward women) was an EDP strength version of Gendarme. I wonder if this is just Carriere repackaged or something different?
