Liquid Karl! OMG!! I thought I was one of the few to know this one. I don't think it was released in the states. I got a bottle in a swap from a European Bnotes member...it was marketed as unisex but definitely skews towards masculine, IMO.
OK here's my London story. I went to Nordstrom several weeks ago and got 1/4 oz decants of Prada, London, Varvatos Vintage and Antidote. They are all better than average mainstream releases, but London was by far my favorite.
I used to reject immediately scents that didn't last on me...traded 'em...but now I just haul around the bottle to work and reapply...no big deal. I was rejecting far too many good scents before just because they didn't last thr whole day. London is not a powerhouse...I'd describe its longetivity as average, but it's too good a scent not to just reapply.
Burberry scents sometimes seem to get short shrift around here, and I agree that some are hit and miss...but the original London is a KILLER scent...pears and tobacco...who knew?... and I agree that Brit comes dangerously close to being too sweet, but it's good for the right time, place, weather and mood.
I felt bittersweet seeing the mention of Chopard's Heaven. I had a negative experience with the person I traded with to get it and traded it to someone else just because of the negative association...how I wish I had it back...
