  14. Re: Guerlain Homme EDP: Advice needed.

    I would recommend sampling anything before committing to a bottle but Guerlain Homme is a nice scent.
  15. Re: Crystal Ball----- Future value of a fragrance

    You know I bet if Guerlain ever decided to discontinue Spiritueuse Double Vanille and not regionally, it will get a nice premium. I could see that with Tonka Imperiale as well.
  16. Re: Which Fragrance Are You Currently Waiting To Be Delivered In The Mail?

    I would recommend looking at sampling Dior Homme Sport 2008 formulation as well. This one involves the use of lemon and ginger.
  19. Re: Crystal Ball----- Future value of a fragrance

    One example would be Creed bottles. Certain batches of certain bottles continue to lead to eventual premiums.
