    Re: Today I bought: April 2015

    Are you familiar with this feeling when you see the fragrance, you know that it is rare and discontinued, and you don't like this particular type of scents - but you buy it anyway because you know if...
  2. Re: Name the fragrance you tried/smelled today for the first time.

    Givenchy Very Irresistible. Bought because it's rare and discontinued. Smells like L'Ideal Guerlain minus almonds, plus mint and tons of coffee. Awesome fragrance, actually.

  5. Re: Tried the new Dior Eau Sauvage COLOGNE (2015)

    Knowing the skills of Demachy, somehow I expect this to be a classy beast on its own merits, with no regards to the original, we'll see. Need to check the stores, it might be there already
  6. Re: Name the fragrance you tried/smelled today for the first time.

    Valentino Uomo Nero. Same bottle as Valentino Uomo, but matte black. Smells similar, but more subdued, less sweetness. Wasn't excited.
