  1. Re: What's the darkest scent that you know? And with dark I mean SUPER-DARK!!!

    Try Malle's Bois d'Orage (French Lover)...very dry with a 'damp stone' note.
  2. Re: Serge Lutens Arabie - the grown up version of V&R Spicebomb ?!?!

    One of my favs. Unique and interesting, doubt I'll ever run into someone else wearing it. Need a backup bottle!

    Re: A question for those who decant by spraying

    Thanks all! So I guess for me a .7 ml sample without a spray top would be about 2-3 wearings. Good to know!

    Much appreciated!

    A question for those who decant by spraying

    Does anyone have a feel for the average amount of fragrance dispensed with each pump? I know it will vary based on brand, but is there a typical range?

    Re: How often do you get to wear London?

    Very often. Works well for me 3 seasons of the year. It is a go-to for me when I'm on the fence in the morning, and I have a backup bottle waiting for when my current one goes dry.
