    Re: Agarwood (oud) oil!

    I got my small vial of Assam Kinam the other day. I only tried it once, and my only other oud experience was with a sample Mudassir (basenoter) sent me, and some Montales.

    Re: Hanae Mori masculine or unisex?

    I have the EDP for trade/sale if anyone wants it. I loved it the first time and enjoyed it a few times outside. Perhaps because of its sillage, it dulls my sense quickly and after an hour I can't...

    Re: Some Neil Morris samples.

    Oh, I want to mention... Izmir is a very nice scent too, and very different from my favorites from my previous post. It is about as pleasant to me as sinking my head in a fresh bag of ground coffee,...

    Re: Some Neil Morris samples.
