    After a full wearing, I can say this is what I've been looking for from an Amouge incense: dark and sultry. Bravo!

  5. Re: Once applied – how long until you leave the house?

    I apply after getting dressed which is usually 5 minutes before I leave for work. I'm alone in my car 45-60 minutes during my commute, so I'm not really concerned about offendnig anybody.

    Re: Where to buy Malle??

    I ordered samples and bottles from the Malle boutique in NYC. It was an enjoyable shopping experience that I would recommend. Loved the black packaging used for shipping.

    Wasn't joking but giving initial impressions. Perhaps it was olfactory fatigue but Interlude seemed to die down pretty fast. I can now say that longevity is not a problem.

    Which batch of Aventus do you have? The A42B10K03 batch is better for spring / summer. C42B10J01 may better for cooler months. I wear Himalaya year round.
