    Burberry The Beat, John Varvatos Eau de Parfum for women, and the two new JPGs.

    Bond, Tom Ford and should be addded to the list both new scents from Tauer perfumes: Incense Extreme (later this month) and Incense Rose (March).

    I'm anxious to sniff Max Mara Le Parfum. I hear it has five different musk notes, nutmeg, plum and woody basenotes.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    888 by Comme des Garcons is the one that I can't wait to sample.

    Just from reading the list and knowing nothing more, the only one I'm interested in is the Bond Union Square. I looked at the notes on NST and it does sound like something that would appeal to me very much.

    me too.
    it's the nostalgic draw for me, as I spent a summer living on Union Square west.
    the idea of the scent captures my fancy.
    haven't yet found a Bond fragrance that I want to own. I suppose I am curious. Those bottles are mad cool.

    what a labor of love, mike, to post all this. thanks.

    The male Prada counterpart to Infusion d'Iris, the Gres homage to Marlene Dietrich, and the new JPG frag for women are intriguing me.

    Definitely interested in the new men's prada if its anything like the women's iris. And always excited about the next addition to the Hermes Jardin series...or anything by JCE for that matter.

    ...Etat Libre intrigues me as well.

    For me at first glance:

    Bond's Warhol #2 (though I also still need to sniff Silver Factory)
    CDG 888
    Gres Hommage a Marlene Dietrich
    Hermes

    (and both of the new Tauers)

    Happy 2008 all!
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Not even Kerry Katona Outrageous is causing me any great excitement.

    Watch out if Tom of Finland comes after you.

    Thanks for the list mike!

    I'm excited about none listed, curious about:
    The new Chloé since I wore the "old" one for several years,
    the female DSquared,
    Tom of Finland for its leather note,
    the new JCE in the Jardin line,
    the new Tom Ford for women.

    I am excited about the new Parfumerie Générale releases (not in the list) - n° 19 is already in the works - allegedly, an orange blossom based scent.

    Oh dear.

    The new Warhol (Union Square)
    Andy Tauer
    Lanvin Rumeur Rose
    the new PG with orange blossom (love orange blossom)

    I also haven't tried the new Chanel 5 eau premiere, so I await it's re-release.
    I also wonder what happened to Reve, the Chanel that was supposed to debut a year or so ago.

    I'm sure I overlooked something.

    Easy, easy, cailan. We all get this way. Remember, if a person samples two a day, it's easy to blow through 700 in a year.

    I'd cross the street to sample the following:

    LISA HOFFMAN frags: This is Dustin Hoffman's wife. One can only assume DH (actually, DH) being in the movie "Perfume" was inspirational. Her frags are crazy expensive and don't know how I'll ever sample them, but the ones I've read about sound divine.

    MARC JACOBS: Basil is a note I favor. His previous splashes are okay.

    FERRAGAMO: SF is more mainstream, and I'm interested what notes they came up with for a unisex.

    ROCHAS: Soleil--Please tell me that doesn't mean a beach scent. Have to sample anything from this house. They don't issue fragrances in rapid-fire as so many others do.
    MUGLER: Did someone say "Pure Coffee"?!

    HERMES: Gotta try the next garden frag, of course.

    TOM FORD: Who could not sample that?

    Still waiting for Stella Cadente Discrete and J Del Pozo In White to hit U.S. shore and stores. Oh, and YSL's 2008 limited-edition springtime Paris variation!

    Thanks for this thread, Mike!

    Ditto on the Rochas, but the last one, Desir, a blind buy was pretty disappointing. I read a wonderful review, found a good price and plowed ahead, meh.

    Tom Ford scents are always worth a try, I find him such a fascinating person.

    How much more aquatic can Bulgari Aqua Marine get? :s
