  1. Re: Seriously, which are THE best DESIGNER fragrances ?

    Burberry London is by far the best I've experienced.
    Bvlgari Black is very good and I also really enjoy Aqua Bvlgari
    Gucci Envy is nice

    Re: Why do they have Non-Export SL scents?

    As with everything, elitism can be the prime selling point to a certain crowd and that crowd is welcome to it. I'll buy what I can readily acquire. I'm sure Serge Lutens' exclusive scents are fine...
  8. Re: Apologies for starting another Terre D'hermes thread

    I've tried this, but on me it smells just like Davidoff Zino, which I own a bottle of. It has a strong orange edge with a vanilla-like underpinning. Does anyone else get the Zino similarity?

    Re: Most overrated and underrated

    Guerlain's Vetiver strikes me as terribly overrated. It's loud, soapy and I have received nothing but wrinkled noses whenever I wore it.

    Creed's BdP is the definition of the word 'cloying' to me....
