    What size packages generally have you sent?
  2. Re: How the hell do you ship fragrances overseas?

    Thanks all for the suggestions.

    For a small package I would chance it but being that I want to send 7 bottles plus another box containing many vials and atomizers together I'm a bit hesitant.
  3. How the hell do you ship fragrances overseas?

    Did a search on this but haven't found a conclusive answer. I know it's possible to make a vague declaration like "toiletries" to get a package through but I need to ship a bunch of bottles (from the...

    Thanks for the tip supermarky. I've been interested in MKK but Kheil's musc is much cheaper (also available in smaller quantities locally). I'll definitely check it out.

    Re: What's in aftershave that's not in cologne?

    Thanks Joel for the suggestion. Sounds good. Much better than buying a separate aftershave for every fragrance I'd say.

    Re: What's in aftershave that's not in cologne?

    Thanks for your reply. I figured that might be the ingredient that separates the two. I guess an experiment with aloe and cologne in varied proportions would be the way to go.
  12. Re: what is musc ravageur reminscent of from the 70s?

    To me the drydown of MR is VERY similar to Gucci Envy. Gucci is slightly sweeter. The topnotes of MR are very different though. Somewhat like animal urine. When those fade though MR is great.

    I love Chergui. It's a very warm, comforting scent but I feel it's really mostly suited for cozy intimate evenings. Anyone wear it in more public situations?
