    Re: How many bottles do you go through in a year?

    Back when I had a signature that I wore every day, it would take me a year to finish a 100ml bottle.

    Re: New Samples

    The only one I can speak of is Montecristo and it is a favorite of mine. I have the older 100ml bottle. If you’re not familiar with this type of fragrance, give it a chance. When I first sampled it,...

    Re: Fragrances that "WOW" you recently?

    Ex Nihilo Midnight Special - I love this stuff. I don't even think of it as a rose-oud-saffron. For example, Malik al Taif is a very natural rose-oud-saffron that I also really like and the two...

    That Beach Hut was a sly one for me. When I tried it from a sample, I loved the opening and thought this is my next full bottle. Thirty minutes later, the barber came running around the corner with...

    I don’t have the packaging anymore to know the specific model, but it is an Oral-B. The dentist office name is custom printed on the handle, so I’m sure I’ll get the same one on the next visit and...
