    Sticky: Re: Free to a Good Home 2019

    I received my package from Trilby Lark as well. I don't have many niche fragrances and none of these smell like anything I have. Cafe tuberosa is bold, of obvious quality and it really does smell...

  3. Re: List And Rate The Menís Issey Miyake Fragrance Line!

  4. Re: Best citrus note for summer - your preference

    The same thing happened to me with the regular TDH. I've had the ETF flanker for a couple months now and it still smells great to me though.
  5. Re: Guerlain L'Eau Boisee - anyone love the scent but hate the performance?

  8. Re: Guerlain L'Eau Boisee - anyone love the scent but hate the performance?

    Wood cap. When I first bought I tested it with 4 sprays on the back off my hand (2, wait, 2 again) and I could still smell it as a skin scent the next day. Happy with that.
  9. Re: Best citrus note for summer - your preference

    The Eau Tres Fraiche flanker of TDH has a much more realistic orange note. It's fresher and a little bitter like the rind. Only downside is the performance suffers next to the edt. L'eau boisee lime...
  10. Re: Which one? Fahrehnheit EDT, Absolute or Parfum ?

    Absolute smelled like a coffin to me. The EDT is marvelous and I haven't gotten my nose on Parfum, unfortunately.

    Re: Should I even bother with Fahrenheit?

    I have a 2014 batch bottle which is, if you listen to some folks here, the most terrible vanilla-molested formula of fahrenheit you can own. It smells great to me. It reminds me of summer days as a...

    Re: Time for a blind buy chance. Any insights?

    The OG OP smells a tad like YSL L'homme without the ginger and bergamot replaced with vanilla and apple. To me. It's not my favorite but I think it's worth $8 for an 100ml. That's nothin'.

    Re: Fahrenheit Flanker Thread

    I have a 200ml bottle of Fahrenheit and 125ml aqua. I've sampled 32. All good stuff.

    Aqua has better longevity and projection than my Dec. 2014 batch of Fahrenheit.
