    Re: Fahrenheit - 2018 batches?

    I do agree, that in total the sales of Fahrenheit may exceed those of Sauvage, that's why I said "these days".
    Let's see, if Sauvage is still that popular in 10 years (I hope not).

    Re: Fahrenheit - 2018 batches?

    No, Sauvage sells a lot better these days.
    However I don't think that Fahrenheit EDT is going to be discontinued, but the Fahrenheit Le Parfum (75 ml bottle) will be.

    Re: Fahrenheit - 2018 batches?

    Unfortunately you can't go with the formula alone.
    I had 2016 batches of DHI, which haven't smelled good, very weak and poor longevity, some 2017 ones were a little bit better - but my 8M01 from...

    This is very simplified and only in regards to the price of the actual juice in the bottle. Most designers are probably not even worth 50 Cents. The more expensive part in many cases is the bottle...

    Re: Fahrenheit - 2018 batches?

    I found the 2015 and 2016 batches to be much weaker and have more vanilla in it. My 2018 is very leathery and less sweet.

    Re: Fahrenheit - 2018 batches?

    Maybe they have enough in stock so they don't need to produce more this year? The late 2018 bottles are awesome, so why don't grab one of those?

    I also heard of some new restrictions to the...

    I certainly will do so, especially if there aren't coming any gorillas along the way and telling me how I should feel about the fragrances I've bought. :wink:

    Dude, when even telling me, I'm "whiteknighting" now THAT is really, really wrong.

    You simply don't see, that you have already got your own narrative and keep telling the people how they should feel about their purchase.
    I don't know why it's that important to you to bash Jeremy...

    Could be, that I don't have seen that posts, which may have been deleted.

    Yes, I ordered two bottles for 80 Euros each, just because I was curious and was aware, that I could sell them without...

    Yeah, why not give some quotes - or do you just claim those things and can't verify them? That would be just trolling.

    I haven't seen any guys here who said it's going to be the next Aventus, but...

    Re: The official Jeremy Fragrance fragrance thread

    Most of the juices you found in your typical 100ml bottles of designer and niche brands' perfumes are not worth more than 5$, the most of it not even 2$.
    So everything is "scam" then?
    Or is it...

  98. Re: What is the best Lalique for summer? Is EN Sport worth buying if i have vintage EN?

    I like the Encre Noire Sport much more than the original Encre Noire and it's probably my favorite Lalique aside L'Insoumis.
    (And don't care for the Extreme at all as it has a weard pea smell).

    I had the Sport flanker, too and that one was much weaker in comparison to the Cologne.
