    Default Best compliment ever and new job!

    Hi guys and gals!

    Just been for a very long 4 hour selection tests and job interview with UK immigration, during, the lady interviewing me said wow, you are the best smelling candidate ever! what is that its sooooo good! its just like coconut trees! with fruit! and that sparked 45 mins of discussing fragrances to the amazement of the other interviewers! they said they were very impressed by that hobby! i even had to sniff and guess what they were wearing!

    I have just received the call and have the job starting back at school for training around december!


    So to all the people who recommended Philosycos by dyptique, a big thank you!!

    Outstanding Mark! Never tried that scent but it sounds 'effective'

    Congratulations, both on the job and the purchase of Philosykos

    I too got three compliments on this fragrance just last week on vacation.

    Congrats from me too!

    I`m looking forward to try Philosykos, hopefully very soon. (it seems to be a must try indeed)

    I have tried only one Diptyque; L`autre that is. (I love that one)

    Hey nice story.

    I guess if i end up getting the axe at work, I'll have to get some Philosykos for the job hunt. (I was wearing MI when I told off my boss, so I'm afraid to wear that to work for fear of bad associations).

    When you wanna quit the job 7 sprays of Joop Homme ought to do the trick, layered with Angel Men. Carry a decant, I heard the stuff doesn't last long.
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.
