For Florida, most any MFK will work, even ApLS in January/February.
I find I wear Pluriel the most, followed by Aqua Universalis Forte.
Saks is OK, but I prefer Bergdorf and Barney's. They are within a few blocks of one another.
Moisture wicking products will hold the smell longer than natural fibers and many times not in a good way as they tend to get very sour smelling after a while.
This is the reason that many are...
As there isn't much left in stock, other than odds and ends in Ladies, would say Vetiver Extrait and possibly Fetish Femme, and don't let the Femme fool you, as a man can pull this one off.
Couldn't have said it better myself.
Yes, it is Jeffery Dame and his son.
Two I enjoy the most, Ex Idolo 33 and Guerlain Rose Nacree du Desert.
There's no Saks in Orlando?
And to think this whole time, I thought of you as the Indiana Jones of the Gulf. :)
Are you sure. Last year she said she was no longer going to sell outside her webstore. Just checked indiescents and none listed (of course unless I missed it with my old eyes)
But isn't that really a personal choice? If one want to stop collecting, then the end is in sight, but if one wants to continue collecting, there will never be an end in sight.
Thought the same. These are not anything alike, so it is hard to understand the X versus Y.
WOE! Nice to see you post. Hope all is well. :)
LOL! Seeing this is like a bad flashback after dropping some acid.
Selling some bottles from my collection. Some are left over from the many splits I have run. With over 300 bottles in my collection, some just won’t be worn very often, so I would rather see some of...
I had sent some splits to a fellow BN member in Singapore. It arrived in Singapore as expected. Next tracking shows that it was sent to Brazil. From Brazil, it was sent back to the U.S. For whatever...
Agree on this. Their best as far as I am concerned is Nemar, but it will set you back over $800.00
Knowing your tastes, I think Kilian Pure Oud or Musk Oud may be up your alley. May want to seek out As Sawira and Zegna Indonesian Oud.
But that is the monthly allocation of new fragrances from Montale.
We did have a thread a while back by someone claiming the Chanel Boutique sold him fake Chanel.
Calling something a masterpeice is in the nose of the beholder. What I may consider a masterpiece most likely would be different than yours.
I enjoy both, but find Malle much more interesting.
Wondering if this one is relatively new, as the sources I usually purchase from does not show La Mat or Songnon Reale. Will have to see about sampling at some point.
Robert Piquet Fracas may be a good alternative. It is a very strong tuberose as is Cardinal Flower.
They have been in Barneys pretty much since day 1. It is only recently they have started to find their way to other outlets.
You need to get your nose on the new NUWA.
Much different than the original for the positive.
All MDCI are now 75ml. As the bust versions do not sell very well, most likely old stock. If you really like the bust version, may want to purchase directly from Claude at MDCI it insure you get 75ml...
Apple Brandy is now available in refill.
Exactly. This is Grant's site and if does not feel comfortable calling it or offering decants, this is his right to do so.
No he is not.
Just someone who is very smitten on this fragrance.
You may want to sample Von Eusersdorff Classic Orange. For a time, it was not available in the US, but is now.
I own this one. While a great fragrance, do not get a burning wood smell or feeling from this one.
Both of these two would be my suggestion as well.
What exactly is tracking showing? Is it showing as dispached by FIF. Has it shown as being picked up by DHL.
Unfortunately, FIF cannot do much until a certain amount of time has past if it has...
Not sure what drama you have with FIF. If you look at many recent postings, the average time from German to the US seems to be 3-4 weeks right now. You say your order was shipped on 2/20, which is...
While we all prefer to offer one split fragrance per splitter, Youssiff9 has a very valid point. Just look at how many splits are now going on for various Tom Ford fragrances. One splitter in...
I can help with the ELDO, as I have some leftover from a previous split. Please PM me for info when you have a chance.
Maybe Iris will be the new Oud?
When was you package shipped.
Actually, Houston has had the line for a couple of years. Palm Beach has had it since holiday of 2013.
Actually, selected Saks have the line. Houston and Palm Beach (Worth Avenue) store. There may be others.
I have been back and forth with Sjorn on this. They do have German Post, but the problem with that option, the maximum insurance is something like €100, whereas with DHL, they can insure for complete...
Funny, most FB groups I belong to, like a good majority of their perfumes.
Actually, they are correct. Ex-Idolo is also bottling in Canada. Makes it easier for them to service North America. This way they do not have to deal with having to send from the UK with their arcane...

Available at Indiescents on this side of the Atlantic.
Be more than happy to after I have a chance to eat dinner and relax a little. I will say, that most tend to be pretty accurate, but there are some that overfill by 5-10ml.
If it were off 1 or 2ml,...
As I noted above, yes I contact Linda Pilkington (owner of OJ) about the shortages. Obviously, they stood behind the product, but in very quick order, she had taken care of the missing juice in short...
Maybe the item he used to measure may not be the most accurate, but I have had issues on a couple of occasions with Ormonde Jayne fills. When I do my splits I use BD 10cc medical syringes, so I would...
Some people may remember my thread from last year on some of the Four Corners perfumes I had split and came up with the same discrepancy. I had emailed Linda about this. They made good on the...
Interesting, it is listed as an EDP and being sold for less than the other Mood's.
Clice from Euphorium Brooklyn
That will be for anything other than fragrances.
Don't feel bad, they had done the same with me in the US. The last couple of times I had ordered, I specifically requested samples which they kindly obliged.
Sorry sir, did not see it. As you have close to 91,000 posts, I must have missed it :sad:.
As someone who has responded many times to questions from members about you adding to your vast...
What a shame, only 50ml. Will you be making an exception for adding these to your collection?
Not sure if I would consider it a chypre. It is a very nice scent, but to me, it leans more feminine. It is one I bought my GF a large bottle for the holidays as she drained the small bottle in...
I have tried a few. The only one I enjoyed was L’Aigle de la Victoire. Unfortunately, it is one of the few that is very hard to come by in the US and when I have been able to find it, they wanted way...
Won't you have to pay sales tax to Parfum1 living in NY?
You named two that are no longer in production, one of which is going to cost a both arms and leg to get. Makes no sense to suggest these.
It appears they are only available in their own stores, none of which are in the US.
Ordered 15ml bottle today. Will try and review once received.
Of the three vestiver's, VE would be my choice.
It is economics 101.
In 2014 the dollar to euro was as high as $1.40 to the euro. It is now at $1.12 to the euro, almost 20% less than same time last year.
If/when the euro reverse's it...
You can try bestbottles.com
There is a $50.00 minimum.
If you do purchase from them, recommend you choosing the USPS Priority Mail option, as you will get it quicker since they ship from Cali.
Unfortunately, everywhere I looked, it is gone. Only came in 50ml bottle.
Neimans or Bergdorf.
While MiN may still show this on the website, I would take that with a hill of beans. Their website is full of inaccuracies, and always has been that way.
Not Luckyscent, as Beauty Habit also shows the same price. MiN used to be the sole US distributor for Frapin, don't know if they still are, but the rrp is set by the distributor, so if anyone is to...
When I visited the JAR boutique in Goodmans a little over a year ago, don't remember anything under $500.00 an ounce.
The one I enjoyed the most was unfortunately no longer available, "Bed of...
Indigo Perfumery shows in stock. May want to contact Ann to see if she has it, if you don't want to wait till the fall.
Nay for me. Found it pedestrian at best.
I wouldn't count on it. They haven't had OJ Man in stock for quite some time.
Actually just the U.S. other counties, including Canada can still pay in £. If you place it into the cart using £, there is no shipping option to the U.S.
You can only use this option if...
Ormonde Man (not made to order) from their website . . .
Ormonde Man Eau de Parfum
Ormonde Man Eau de Parfum is infused with Oudh oil and includes notes of black hemlock, musk, vetiver,...
They are ripping off US customers.
If you look at pound sterling prices . . .
30% @ £184.00 at current conversion is $282.60 USD.
40% @ £194.00 at current conversion is $298.00 USD.
Found the documents from the last two packages mailed via Colissimo from France.
One is listed as Press Kit. The second was just marked as sample.
None for me.
Unfortunately David, you cannot guarantee delivery. Even in the best of times, when you could legitimately mail perfume, how can you guarantee delivery abroad. Stuff happens that is out of your...
Some very good ones.
Add to this list, Tom Ford Sahara Noir. Also a relative unknown around BN, Ramón Béjar Sanctum Perfume.
My personal opinion, none. While an SA may throw some samples at you, the reality is, they are doing their job, and that job is to sell you more.
If you plan on purchasing several Flancons, at a...
Nope, have received numerous packages from France via Colissimo. Last package received about 10 days ago, and very speedily I might add.
You could always purchase out of Europe if you are so inclined. Right now, at Premier Avenue out of France, pricing is 371,67 euro which is about $425.00 USD. There is a $38,00 euro shipping charge...
Not sure why you find it odd. They are on top of their distribution chanels, making sure the Private Blends do not make it to discounters. You may find from time-to-time a place like Fragrancenet may...
US Customs, depending on which center it goes through is normally a speedy process. If the package goes through Miami, it takes less than 24 hours before it is on the way. The problem is with DHL. It...
My understanding it started with batch codes CH2xxxx. What the differences are, I cannot say, as I have not compared to the bottle I got in 2010.
My understanding from a few aficionados of this one, it has gone through a recent reformulation, and in their eyes, not for the better.
It is still worth it to try and see if it meets your...
Will list in a little bit.
Remik, unless customs is really good at resealing the package, I can honestly say, I have never detected any of my packages arriving from overseas had been opened. There was a short time last year,...
No Calligraphy Rose on your list?
I generally lump both EN and FIF into the same conversation when it comes to delivery, as they both use DHL Paket to send overseas.
Personally have purchased from both of these places...
Next step after what you see will look something like this:
The shipment will be transported to the destination country and, from there, handed over to the delivery...
Remik is splitting Sel Marin.
Olfactive Studio - Panorama
The Sheats House is an architectural masterpiece of glass and concrete. Seemingly floating, it seems to lie over an ocean of green - tenderly bedded in the hills of Los...
I received a bottle for a split yesterday. One spray to test it, 2500 sq ft warehouse, and you could smell it in the air for 2 hours. Haven't had a chance to give it a proper wearing, but given you...
Will probably be wearing Roja Fetish PH.
Will this also not be available on this side of the Atlantic like Absolute?
Unfortunately, since the holiday season, DHL has been painfully slow. The last order took a little over three weeks. Hopefully your package will go through Miami Customs and not New York. If it is...
