  1. Re: Did you ever blind-buy Heritage de Guerlain, and did it fall short, meet, or exceed expectations

    Heritage is a classic no doubt. And stellar performance. I’m talking about the vintage gold capped EDT as that is what I have. But I do think it is a bit dated, and to me is really only suited to...

    Re: Oud!

    Not gonna get any real Oud for that price and that amount, if that matters to you. You could get real Oud oil for around the higher end of that range, but for max 2.5 mls or so.
