  1. Re: Bortnikoff perfumes (take note Areej le Dore fans!)

    I like it in moderation as a supporting cast generally but some Rose dominant scents have captivated me. Overall do you find series five a step above series four?

    Re: The best of Xerjoff?

    Xerjoff has so many great scents. Pricey yes but very well composed. Aubres, Begum, Fars, Alexandria II, Nio, Kobe, 1888, 40 Knots and so many more are excellent.
  3. Re: Bortnikoff perfumes (take note Areej le Dore fans!)

    Excellent! Glad you like all of them. I loved Vetiver Nocturne original version so much that I felt like absolu would be a good pickup also. Oud Sinharaja looks very compelling per your suggestion.
