    I've gravitated towards niche and beyond because it's so much easier to sample these perfumes in the comfort of my own home. I rarely buy anything without first trying it out and I find the in-store...

    Re: Any thoughts on Lubin Itasca edp

    Itasca is world's apart from Guerlain's Vetiver, but beautifully put together. Much more 'energized' if that makes sense, not going after the rich, luxurious vibe of the Guerlain offering, which is...

    Do also try Spicy Aoud - not at all the spice bomb the name suggests but a well-rounded all occasion scent which seems to have flown completely under the radar.

    Re: The Big Issue - Wearing The Other Gender ?

    Gender is a social construct. If we're talking sex, perfumes don't come with genitalia attached (and I'm not talking bottles which occasionally depict pudenda). The rest is marketing.

    Re: Ugliest bottle/Presentation

    I think the makers were deliberately going for the trash aesthetic - Jungle Jezebel is after all a Divine song and the perfume some kind of hommage.
