    Serge Lutens in Toronto?

    Hello everybody.

    I was wondering if there's anywhere in Toronto where one can buy Ambre Sultan or other of Lutens' more popular offerings?
    Also, if you have any idea, how much would they cost on...

    I'll at least acknowledge that their lavender smelled very realistic.

  7. Re: Which scent gives you the best longevity per dollar?

    John Varvatos. The top and heart notes fade within 3 hours, but the leather/vanilla base can last up to 24 hours (typically about 18, though), and has even managed to withstand two showers once.
    And...
  8. Re: NEW: John Varvatos For Women (for you chypre fans).

    I've smelled a sample of it, and it strongly reminds me of the hodgepodge of scents you get as soon as you step into the perfume department of any big department store.

    Mitsouko....

    You may hate me for this, but I really wasn't all that impressed with it. I am prejudiced, perhaps, because I dislike the smell of peaches.
