Bump. Added Tom Ford - Sahara Noir.
No worries. I enjoyed reading your exchange but was just a bit confused by that last part :).
Thanks for the explanation. I completely agree that the fragrance aesthetic of bond no 9 is quite similar to designer offerings (or Creed to some extent), thus rather banal. In regards to assigning...
I don't really see the connection you're making, claiming it's aesthetic is designer yet it's postmodern. What, if I may ask, criteria are you going by?
Bond No. 9 will always be associated with a bad memory for me. The first time I purchased a 'niche' fragrance was from Bond no. 9 and it was before I even know the existence of niche fragrances. ...
It's a good coupon, but unfortunately they won't give you free shipping as you can't combine coupons and for those of us in NY, we undoubtedly have to pay tax :(.
Sunglasses (then again, how many pairs make a collection?)
Yup, this was my favorite of their offerings. The only other Diptyque I own is Volutes.
Yup, all good over here, great service this time around it seems.
I received mine today as well. But I won't be home to check on it until tomorrow night. I'll try to give an update then.
Package seems to have been sent. Delivery is for Monday january 12. Looking forward to getting it.
Received an e-mail: A package was shipped to you on 01/09/2015 via U.S. Postal Service Priority
2 DAY Mail, Small Flat Rate Box to the following address:
Trying to track the package produces no...
Yea, I picked up Cuirelle, but I don't have high hopes for actually getting it :).
I've now ordered three fragrances from Lilydirect in two separate orders. Creed VIW tester, DHI (5oz), and Varvatos Vintage tester. My only issue with the two orders I placed was the packing for...
Try their website: http://www.cybercucina.com/pp/L-Erbolario-Lodi/Meharees-Acqua-Di-Profumo-Eau-De-Parfum-LErbolario-Lodi/572/
Seems in stock at the moment.
Thank you :)
Velvet Desert Oud by Dolce & Gabbana
Yup, and that was also the price I saw when I was there before June of 2014.
Probably from me when I was there last year. When the ruble was around 30-33 to a dollar, it cost 15,000 rubles (or about $455-$500).
They do adjust their prices to take inflation into account. There is no MFK store in GUM, it's sold in Articoli, which is owned by Bosco (http://www.bosco.ru/en/articoli/).
Where did the 30% off come from, if you don't mind sharing?
Edit: Two more just showed up.
Fragrance Republic 03 and 08:
Welcome! I got 08 and 03 :).
Wasn't to my liking but I should have gotten a sample, now that I think about it. Hope you enjoy it though.
They had a tester out. But I didn't ask about stock. I'd give them a call tomorrow and see what's available.
Tried them all today at MiN NY, only one I enjoyed was Wild Rose Aoud but it was unoriginal, good, but unoriginal.
Just got my first order from them today. I ordered a new bottle of Dior Homme Intense and a tester of Varvatos Vintage. The Dior was perfectly fine, but the tester box was beaten up during transit....
A highly recommended store. Was just there today and it's a really relaxed and comfortable atmosphere with a nice selection. They don't offer discounts, from what I know, but they at times do...
I did receive an e-mail about it. But you can check your 'wallet' when you log into your paypal account and it should have a few offers, if this one is there then it's available to you.
.5oz are $22 each
2.5oz are $59 each
Also, for some paypal has a $20 off with a purchase of $100 or more, so I was able to get 2 75ml bottles for $98. They aren't the greatest, but for $49 each,...
I've contemplated a purchase in the past, but after reading all of this, I don't think I'm inclined to give them my business.
And for those that don't think your experiences matter, they really do...
Only happened once so far, LIDGE.
Once I hit 100+ I started to calm down and really think about what I was getting and whether it was/is worth it. I'll probably always be downsizing here and there as my tastes change, but I've begun...
The price I quoted was before the recent ruble plunge. Interestingly, Guerlain is priced similarly to the the US, and they are a better deal as there is no sales tax in Russia. The market in Russia...
Only made two purchases, came out to a little over $500.
If you're talking about the 'gum' in the name, it's an acronym for 'Main Universal Store'. There's also a 'TsUM' or 'Central Universal Store'. I tried it when I was in Moscow, it's nice, but it's...
Spicebomb Eau Fraiche
I actually ordered a 50ml bottle of D600 from an Israeli seller on ebay, but I ordered a tester. It was sealed up in so much bubble wrap that you could wrap a full grown human being in it a few...
Probably around 110 full bottles, ranging from 30ml to 250ml. I've been into this hobby for about two years now, and I'm starting to pull back. There were months that I'd have ten or more...
Back when I had a 'signature scent', as in using the same scent on a daily basis until the bottle was finished, a 100ml bottle would last anywhere from 1-3 months.
Yea, I got Mahogany Woods in early September when it first came out. It reminded me of Pure Wood when I first tried it, but having tried both today (got another Pure Wood sample with my Pure Coffee...
Just received A*Men Pure Coffee
As mentioned, Eau Fraiche for Spicebomb means mostly the same thing as the original Spicebomb with some citrus added in to 'brighten' or 'freshen' the overall scent. I have the original but I liked...
When I visited Vegas, about a year and a half ago, I walked away with a bunch of samples, specifically from the Hermes boutique(s), Tom Ford, and Barney's.
Might just be me but Mahogany Woods actually reminded me of A*Men Pure Wood.
Had a very productive vacation in Germany and managed to pick up a few things:
It's not controversial, but some are treating it as if they live in an ideal world, while others are happy to take advantage of good fortune.
The statement in question did that all on its own. I simply provided some context in addition. The rest of your post contains nothing of worth to address, thanks.
I provided one example to show the preposterous nature of a previously made statement. I'm not using it as a template for anyone, simply as an example of the multitude of situations that can be...
You paint a black and white picture, as many others here do as well, which I simply don't agree with. Outright theft, greed, dishonesty, and abuse are one matter. A company making a mistake and...
So, once more, to be clear, one party will refuse to do business with their customer because of a mistake said party made in the first place? Good luck to that business.
I've addressed this when I said that there are two parties to consider here. Unlike your ethics in a vacuum scenario.
And you can tiptoe around what you said, but it's clear as day. And I...
How does one 'fire the customer'? And, more so, how does one 'fire the customer' due to a mistake made originally by the business doing the 'firing'?
All you see is the original poster. Take some context into account and maybe the mere words you're seeing will make more sense. I'm advocating for them to do whatever they like, why? Because I...
Took words out of context and avoided questions? Sure did.
So you are the only one with a right to exercise their agency? Ethics in a vacuum don't mean much.
Understood, the other person's agency is a higher being's problem. How 'ethical' is...
I live in the real world, where ethics in business are little more than a slogan and hardly exercised as companies seek any way they can to earn the most profit in the shortest amount of time. At...
It's reality. Business ethics are an oxymoron.
I don't really see a reason for the making of this thread. If you got a free bottle, keep it and enjoy it. Maybe it's Creed's way of saying 'sorry' for the price increases they just went through. ...
It's EdT and it does come with a cap. I placed my order a while back, the deal has been around for a while now.
Living in NY I've shopped at Barney's at least three times, service was good enough but they were somewhat stingy with samples and their display is definitely sub-par, for both the men's and women's...
Bergdorf has it listed online, although back ordered, might want to give them a call and see if they have a tester available at their NYC location.
Received a few days ago:
Picked up a 250ml bottle yesterday of Tobacco Vanille at a Long Island Bloomingdale's here in NY. Asked for an atomizer and for the SA to fill it up with 20ml more of TV. She had the atomizer...
Very nice! Last night I gave in to temptation and picked up a 250ml Flacon of Tobacco Vanille.
Looks promising, I'll have to stop by Twisted Lily at some point and give it a try.
I recently tried Cape Heartache and I really enjoyed the Pine note in the dry down. That would probably be the first scent I'd get from the line.
X-Ray Profumo Resurrextion
If you get lucky enough, every now and then various Creed retailers will do a special in which you buy a 50ml travel atomizer and they'll fill it up with whatever you like for free (some will have...
I just follow my nose :)
Christopher Street by Charenton Macerations
Wasn't too thrilled with This Weekend by Roads so I exchanged it for D & G Velvet Desert Oud:
I've got L'Homme and La Nuit, the others I've tried and passed on.
Roads - This Weekend
Thanks :D. Congrats to you, those three look very promising!
Serge Lutens - Un Bois Vanille
Glad I could help :). Hope you enjoy them!
Happened once. Ordered one item but two of the same showed up, was only charged for one.
I sent in my 'application' weeks ago, and even stopped by recently and mentioned that I hadn't heard back, they said they'd look into it...but nothing so far. That 'membership' just gives you the...
This one is on my list, along with This Weekend. Might pick it up on Saturday :thumbsup:
Krigler - Established Cognac 66
I went through Sheremetyevo twice, never purchased anything. Their prices were too high, from what I recall, even without tax.
In terms of exclusives, I've tried Apple Brandy and prefer Vodka on the Rocks. Although I enjoy my heavier scents, this one is more fall/summer/spring. Although I'm pretty horrible at breaking down...
By Kilian - Vodka on the Rocks
Cuir Beluga, followed by TI and SDV.
