    Default Your Next Purchases?

    Got anything in the pipeline for the next few weeks? I'm going to buy a few trumper products next. I love their shave creams and a few of their colognes...so heres my list

    Trumper violet shave cream
    Trumper sandalwood shave cream
    Trumper sandalwood soap
    Trumpers GFT cologne ( used the sample and i just love this! )
    Trumpers GFT bath gel [smiley=bath.gif]
    Trumpers Ajaccio violets ( now i love violets and i do have the sample but as has been said in the current 'violets' topic, its not very lasting. Nevertheless i'll probably still get it)

    I want a few floris products as well, but i'm waiting for a number of samples from them before making a decision

    ok, how about you guys and gals? [smiley=smiley.gif]

    I just made some huge purchases... for me anyway.

    From Adeel (AZsmells) I got... decants of M7 Fresh, Santal Imperial, Green Tea, Czech and Speak No. 88 and Frankincense and Myrhh. I also got a partially filled bottle of Blu Notte pH.

    From Marlen (Scentaur7) I got... decants of Alessandro dell Aqua pour Homme, Bulgari Blu Homme, Donna Karan Black Cashmere, Crown Eau De Russe, Guerlain Heritage and Versace Mediterraneum. I also got myself a half full 1oz bottle of Bois du Portugal.

    That makes it a total of 13 different smells!! WoW. I'm so excited for them to come and I'm so glad that Adeel and Marlen are so helpfull..... Deffinately recomend them if you want to sell or swap. Thanks guys.

    Ed,

    You are going to love the Trumper's violet cream and fragrance. It calms my skin like no other cream, and makes me feel like a million bucks. Easily in my top two shave creams - the other is Taylor's rose. If you don't have it, then add it to your list. It is a bargain no less.

    I would be interested to know how you like the other trumper scents.

    For the hot summer, I am going to add a lime type fragrance to go with my limes cream. It is a real pick me up. I think the Miller Harris will win.

    If, in fact, you end up likeing Erolfa let me know. * I received a large bottle of the stuff and it does not agree with me and after a few days with it I decided it just was not for me. *I'm too lazy for ebay and will let it go for a steal just to know it is not wasted. *I'm sticking with Green Valley...the only Creed I seem to like.

    This week (ok last 2 days) I'm very much obsessed with Emporio Armani. I already have (and love) the original but now I want Night and White too. And I can't wait to try the new Emporio Aramani City Glam.

    Ofcourse if I wait just a few days I'll be obsessed with something else.

    Lorenzo Villoresi Musk, will try to visit the doctor (apparently you should book ahead, but my friend just rang the doorbuzzer) and if I manage then Musk will be purchased.

    Long term:

    Diptyque Tam Dao

    Creed Original Santal - if it is as good as the pyramid implies.

    L'Artisan - The passion boxed set, Ambre Extreme, Mechant Loup

    AdP - Colonia Assoluta

    Hi all,

    Well...money is pretty tight but...I recently got a one ounce decant of MPG PAFRUM D'HABIT and...I have a one ounce decant of MPG ROUTE DU VETIVER on the way as well. Ummmm...I also should buy something for my 50th. Birthday in July! Perhaps...HABIT ROUGE ? That's not TOO expensive! I think I will (more than likely) buy a BOTTLE of (something) CREED for FALL. I have a sample of RUSSIAN on it's way to me thanks to a very kind BN member. I am VERY interested in sampling the new ORIGINAL SANTAL CREED.

    DK Black Cashmere
    Versace The Dreamer
    Gucci Envy
    Sung Homme (to replace my rapidly diminishing current supply)

    Claiborne Sport
    Alain Delon Iquitos

    These last two are blind buys, based on reviews and comments. I'm batting a thousand on blind buys so far (2 for 2: Yang and Carven Homme) so I feel like I'm gambling with house money, and the both of them together came in under $35 for large bottles.

    Taking in consideration that I have no money at this particular moment may be I won't purchase anything. But if I get some I'll go and buy:

    1. Ralph Lauren Romance, because my bottle is almost over.

    2. Fahrenheit by Christian Dior, very distinctive and original.

    3. Jazz by Yves Saint Laurent, I couldn't belive my nose when I first smelled this stuff. It's great, but in Bulgaria is selled for $119. That's what is stopping me from purchasing.

    4. Live Jazz by Yves Saint Laurent, The same.

    5. Egoiste Platinum by Chanel, a classic.

    6. DKNY Be Delicious

    7. M7 fresh. It's not very good, I think It's untypical for Bulgaria and I'll stand out from the crowd.

    I have been careful, first buying a sample, then a decant, and now I am sure I can confidently sink a chunk of cash into a bottle of MPG’s Santal Noble. The first 15 minutes are a bit off putting, but like a lot of folks of this board have maintained, the dry down is incomparable. Now I need only wait for Fall, since I am quite sure this stuff would smell pretty raunch on me in hot weather.

    Since the Basenote’s consensus steered me so accurately to SN, I plan next on investigating another board favorite, BdP, to see if it works as well on me as on so many others.

    evogel:

    You might want to choose your source for the Baladin carefully to maximize your chances of getting a fresh bottle. I saved a couple of bucks buying a cheap bottle and I regret it. My bottle came with a round blue cap instead of the pointy blue caps de Nicolai now uses for all her high-test male fragrances. PdN probably used the round ones a while back. Anyway, my juice still smells perfectly delightful, but I can tell that some of the herbal essences have not aged gracefully, since my Baladin does not smell quite as tasty as the sample that I got from beautyhabit.com did.

    Incidentally, I had excellent luck buying my bottles of New York and de Nicolai pour homme directly from PdN. They responded promptly to my first email inquiry (sent to paris@pnicolai.com). Then, I sent them half of my credit card info in one email note and the other half in a second note. The juice arrived promptly, but I have to say they were not terribly good about notifying me when the stuff shipped.

    Hoped that helps you dodge a bit of aggravation.

    Steely Glint:

    I am not sure if the same precautions are really needed or not for Carre d’As. I never bought a full bottle of the stuff.

    Hi E_D:

    Trumpers colognes are hard to come by around here - where do you purchase your's (online?) The violet is wonderful. I love it, but it only lasts about 1/2 hour on my skin. Today I'm wearing their sandalwood and it's still going strong after about 5 1/2 hours. I enjoy many Trumper scents, but only the sandalwood has this longevity on me.
    My next purchase? Tomorrow I'm taking my daughter to Norstroms to buy her a bottle of Geir's Laila. Who know what I might find for myself ...? [smiley=grin.gif]

    I've got the sample of eucris and you know a very strange thing....it smelled almost exactly like the herb wormwood!!! to my nose anyway. Before i got'into' scents i was fascinated by old incense formulae. i've used wormwood in a few of these and to me eucris is almost an exact replication!

    Portdeluac: Yes, trumpers violet shaving cream is wonderful! i've used it before and it generally leaves a scent of violets long after i've shaved. Tried taylors products before, but i'm not a fan. I had a tub of eton college cream and after a while the scent seemed to become separated......strange.....The rose is nice but too 'light' for me. I like a much stronger scent.

    I have a bottle of trumpers royal cologne. very musky,spicy. I like it
