New stuff ... come and get it!
Added Roja Dove Musk Aoud to the list this week!
That's interesting ... he's never offered official pronunciations for his past releases, stating that they were intentionally left ambiguous. Maybe there's more meaning behind the name of this one?
Welcome to the big leagues, Peeps... :wink:
Although, depending on the strength of the oil/attar, it's possible that two actual drops might be too much for a wearing. If it comes with an...
I believe the 1oz size was intended to be a limited edition offering (or at least, it originally was). If that's the case, then it would make sense that the most popular one would no longer be...
The percentage on the bottle is typically the alcohol percentage -- not the oil percentage. And, no, Tom Ford is nowhere remotely close to 100% concentration.
I've been pronouncing it like the country Tibet, personally.
This is also the case with Gio Essenza, if I'm not mistaken. The bottle has the same dimensions, but the internal volume is different. The bottom and sides are thicker on the 75ml version.
There are several nice ones from the house, but Vetiver is the only one that I was inclined to own.
Thanks for the info! Looks like this is an officially registered and trademarked logo for Creed:
Remik is 100% correct. I could have told you it was fake before even looking at the picture ... $80 price tag, purchased from Eastern Europe, from a seller with very little feedback.
Yes, Slumberhouse Jeke is intended to smell like this.
"The smoke and spice are constructed in a way to evoke the feeling of desolate autumn nights - the sting of smoke and the spice of burning...
Yep, I'm gonna go with this.
The one on the left is an older-style Creed flacon -- the green glass ones.
Sold out of stuff again last week ... updated with some new bottles for this week!
I'm back from a hiatus and re-opening my splits page. I've added a lot of new stuff, some of which is pretty rare -- only limited quantities are available!
This was my initial impression, as well. I feel that the heart of New Sibet is like a well-done, vintage, leather chypre. The oakmoss-amber drydown is quite prominent on my skin.
I believe he has gotten all of his bottles of Dua for free, based on a couple of his videos that I watched.
#1 has both castoreum and civet present. There is actually no cumin, as mentioned above, but perhaps that person was associating the scent of spices mixed with animalics to equate to a cumin-like...
I do as well. 1-2 sprays is plenty for me, and I can still smell it the next morning.
Although I don't generally put much stock into reformulation discussions, this one supposedly has been...
I agree whole-heatedly with your distinction between aquatic and marine scents. However, I do disagree with your assessment of Erolfa. In my opinion, that's one of the quintessential examples of a...
#1 is far and away my favorite of the three. Dirty, woody, and ambery -- one of my favorite winter evening scents.
I found #2 to be nice, but I didn't quite like it enough to buy a bottle. I...
So, this is my only real takeaway from your entire post....
Yep, this is already available on the Slumberhouse website. My bottle is on its way.
Batch codes align with production dates, not release dates. It stands to reason that your bottle would have been produced a few months before it hit retail shelves.
The first rule of Oud Club is: You do not talk about Oud Club.
Removed sold and added a few new ones this week ... good deals on some HTF partials!
I can't speak to the exact concentrations ... but I will say that all three versions are clearly different scents. I used to own the Extrait, then sampled both the EDP and the Parfum when they came...
Honestly, windows are the least of your worries if you're storing expensive fragrances under the bathroom sink. Wow...
More bottles added this week ... some hard-to-find stuff! :coolold:
Houbigant Cologne Intense is definitely my choice. I tried a lot of alternatives before that, but as soon as I smelled this one for the first time, I knew that it was the one. And while they both...
I purchased a bottle at their BIN price. Later that day, they contacted me and said that they dropped the bottle and broke it. They wanted me to request a cancellation for the sale on my end. I...
This is absolutely, 100%, without question, the correct answer.
I've had bad dealings with them, personally, and wouldn't buy from them again.
I agree, but I think the humidity argument stems primarily from discussions around splash bottles, flacons, etc. -- bottles that aren't necessarily airtight.
No, this is just what the scent smells like.
This description alone makes me want to blind-buy a bottle. Thanks!
I always decant flacons into a separate screw-top bottle for shipping. It's by far the quickest and most secure method, in my opinion. Regardless of how much effort has gone into securing the top,...
Well, the house did post a multi-million dollar financial loss last year, and subsequently got bought out by outside investors. So, I'm betting that they're taking those few extra ml per bottle...
Same issue here.
Both CC bottles I've purchased new in the past year have come filled lower than my older bottles did. The "low fill" pictures in this thread match exactly what I've received too. I'm guessing it's...
Bianca's join date is listed as Nov 2013 ... that is well past the required 1-year mark.
If the label is on the front, that means it was a tester. You'll often see these older testers that somebody stuck an extra grey cap on, trying to pass them off as a retail bottle. That being said,...
What's the batch number on that taco? I might be interested...
This. $1.75 would be overpriced, in my opinion.
Are you certain it's crimped? I've owned numerous vintage (90ml) MPG bottles, and all have had screw-off sprayers. I didn't think they began crimping the tops until they moved to the 100ml bottle...
Correct ... it's currently only available in European markets. I'm guessing they had to ramp up production and get all of the product sent over here before they could do an official US launch.
Yes, this is definitely for the US launch of Aventus for Her.
Aventus for Her.
Bois Marocain was incense and cypress ... effectively a green incense.
Creed changes the details on their boxes/packaging all the time. Yours is perfectly fine, and is a very nice gift for your father.
I don't think there's anything different about it. The Limited Edition part is that it's pre-filled with Aventus. Basically, it's like buying the atomizer and getting 50ml of Aventus with it for...
It's a Selfridge's exclusive, being released 6/1.
It was probably a returned bottle that they re-wrapped and re-sold.

MDCI Invasion Barbare
My thoughts EXACTLY.
Amouage Silver Man
DEFINITELY leave the seller negative feedback. It is fully deserving in cases like this, and is really the only recourse that you have. I've had similar situations myself, unfortunately....
Roja Dove Vetiver Parfum PH
Creed Green Valley
Exactly right ... this is the real question, more often than not.

My observations are that the FB groups are largely filled with newer members to the fragrance community, who simply don't know much outside of currently "hyped" scents. And if they don't venture...
Ormonde Jayne Man
Roja Dove ENIGMA Parfum Pour Homme
Dude ... relax. A good portion of the Malle line was reformulated about three years ago, and Frederic himself was very open about this. He discussed it in several public interviews at the time, and...
Creed Original Vetiver
Roja Dove VETIVER Parfum Pour Homme
SOTN: Roja Dove Reckless Pour Homme
That's not out of the ordinary whatsoever for Creed packaging.
No, nothing to worry about.
Journey Man is great ... It's among my top-five Amouage scents, and I've owned 35+ different bottles from the house.
Yes, there has been other discussion of this. Nordstroms across the country have been sharing this same information for the past couple of months, so it certainly looks to be true.
Profumum Roma Victrix
Looks perfectly fine to me ... what makes you think it's fake?

I was simply pointing out that your own argument here would hold a lot more water if you didn't make such wild exaggerations, such as a 99.99% decrease in longevity. Making a statement that it was...
Houbigant Fougere Royale Parfum
99.99% of it's longevity? Be realistic ... that means that, if you got 10 hours of longevity when new, you then got only 3.6 seconds of longevity after one year.
I've got no skin in the game...
