Yes. Cold preserves - basic science says so. There is no debate about this. How much "value" you get out of it however, is purely subjective.

So, MC, VISA, etc. aren't exclusive enough, but NM will accept cash - which every Tom, Dick, and Jane has? Brilliant. :rolleyes:
The atomizer is the worst IMO too. It has an extremely wide, fine burst, which way overshoots smaller targets like one's wrist or arm (unless you spray close enough, but then it makes a puddle) and...
Very exciting rumor indeed!

Stop saying that. Accept that there is no "last one". You will then be cured.

Just thought I'd start this thread on Scentberry.com because I've seen their (new?) ad recently on BN. Others can put there experiences here and dpak can summarize it on his BIG list of online stores...
Versace Black Jeans (painted). The other bottles in this line may be opaque too but I've personally never seen the others.
DK Black Cashmere (vintage egg bottle)
Being right-handed myself, yes, I do sometimes use my left hand. It feels as if someone else is doing it - a cute frag-counter sales associate I imagine.

Neither are the cartridge types. Besides, the blades are only being cleaned, not (re)sharpened.

Considering how this contraption works, I see no reason why it wouldn't work with DE razor blades. Seems to me it might work even better since one could take the blade out of the housing to clean...
Least lame "What would so-&-so wear?" thread I've seen in a long time.
I find it extremely hard to believe that so many dogs would be so curious about a scent that they would jump over an obstacle (the bridge wall/railing in this case) not knowing what's on the other...

No. I prefer to scent myself on purpose and in more practical areas.

My first and last experience with testers:

Are you sure the Neiman Marcus isn't a fake? It should say Neiman on the store front, not Neimen. :huh:
Try deleting it from your wardrobe completely, then add it back.
I will just comment that I agree with you 100%. I suspect your nose is in fine health.
You did notice that Scented Monkey shows the "list" price as $65 right?
So, the price being marked as $90, then checking her price list to see what kind of a "deal" she could give you was the...
Good to know. I have no interest whatsoever in ever delving into fragrances beyond simply enjoying what smells good on me and others so, note to self - "Don't sniff raw chemicals used in fragrances."...
The Mitchum gel has a removable top (not the cap, the top of the actual dispenser). Would be easy to empty all the Mitchum goop into a small bowl, mix in a few sprays of your favorite frag, and scoop...
I've been testing this lately from a large sample. I love it and most likely will buy a bottle.

Nicole Miller for Men
And shouldn't we include the other two DKs - Chaos & Black Cashmere - since these are popular with both men and women? Granted, the vintage BC is still fairly easy to acquire.
There used to be a sticky or FAQ somewhere asking members to list the establishment, discount, and expiration date in the thread title - dunno where that is now. I still try to do this AND I try to...
Here's a quick analysis I did of the "vintage" vs reissue versions of Nicole Miller for Men ingredients: http://community.basenotes.net/showpost.php?p=1301085&postcount=46

Generally, IMO - Cheap prices + good reputation = fast-moving inventory = fresh stock
Problem is, it's difficult to know. You would have to contact the perfume manufacturer and try to get them to...
It can't be good for you.
The eggs are still fairly easy to find online and they run about the same price as the new release but if the juices are the same, I would prefer the bottle that actually stands up. ;)
They're nothing alike but both great IMO. You can get a sample of Nicole Miller for Men at Scentmonkey.com or PerfumeWorldwide.com.
Has anyone compared the old BC juice in the black egg to the new juice in the cylindrical bottle? Any indication the new version has been reformulated at all?
By-the-way, the Bergdorf site lists...
Fits all your criteria and adds a slightly tropical flavor.

Could you have misheard and it starts with a "D"? Very similar phonetically.
Mods, maybe this thread could be appended to the 1stPerfume thread since OverstockPerfume.com is just another 1stPerfume.com mirror?

Thanks ;) I received one of their wholesale lists a couple months ago. I was disappointed to see that most of their prices were slightly above or only $1 or $2 below the every-day discount prices at...
This is what I'm think'n. But if wholesale prices turn out to run at least $4-5 cheaper on average (in quantity) than standard discount prices, then I would consider it worth finding myself a...

I try to do this but it's tricky and doesn't work with all atomizers. I've found that the trick is slow, steady pressure on the sprayer. It also sometimes helps to not let the sprayer travel all the...

Besides refrigeration, you could seal the bottle in some kind of container filled with an inert gas or if the atomizer is removable, displace the air inside the bottle with the inert gas. Do a search...
trandi, your post sounds sincere and balanced to me. If you are a shill, your technique is a bit too subtle - my position toward 1stPerfume.com is unchanged. Maybe you've fooled me but I don't...

Never. Not even when I temporarily had the market cornered on Nicole Miller for Men.

This is a beautiful perfume but pretty feminine to my nose. There are some perfumes marketed to women that I wouldn't have a problem wearing; this isn't one of them.
