    I got this frag about a year ago. Just despised it. Really disliked it and put it away. Tonight, just on a whim pulled it out and WOW! what an amazing scent! So intriguing...

    I like your youtube reviews. Glad to see you doing it. Keep them going! But IMHO keep an eye on the time. 3 or 4 mins is best.

    I am always looking for the newest info. Based in the sticks of Japan it is really hard to get the niche stuff. So I look for the main designer brands. I was really excited for the latest BN awards...

    Ahhhhh Calvin....

    Re: Been on a bit of a purchasing binge---

    Yes--By Man is indeed rare. I have been searching for it for a long time. I just happened to stumble upon it on a Japanese auction site. Perhaps 95% full. 3000 yen. A steal for sure.

    Re: International Shipping Confusion

    Agree. It has to do with shipping flammable stuff. I have read that one way around this is to have the sender label it perfume "oil".

    Re: Your Best And Worst Blind Buy?

    Living where I do in Japan it is nearly impossible to sample scents regularly. So almost all my buys are blind.

    Re: Any Recommendations for a Powerful CITRUS?

    I am surprised no one has mentioned Allure Homme Edition Blanche. Tons of citrus notes--lemon, lime, grapefruit.
  21. Re: Oh look, another "newb needs fragrance" thread.

    Hi Luke A! I am also new to the board but have been a fragrance fan for years. There are plenty of quality frags at your price point. You just have to try them out (as you did).
