    I spray about 12 to 15 and can go up to 20 on lighter perfumes which translate to 1ml to 2ml.

    I only spray 6 sprays of Hasu No Hana which is more than suffice.
    Thank you! So 20 sprays = 1 or 2 ml then?

    Yes sweety. Approx. 20 sprays is about 2ml.
    Today I was decanting perfumes for a friend and about 20 sprays filled up a 2ml atomizer.

    Thank you lots! That was really useful.

    I just tried Betrothal from a $12 sample! It is quite a nice mellow floral to start, nothing objectionable. After the dry-down it becomes a soft powdery floral of no particular distinction.

I m yes to test the new Betrothal but am really afraid of it because of the price.. but the other 2 deserve every Dollar they cost! This is Perfume art as good as it gets!! Grossly underrated!! People, lovers of classical perfumery, please try these beauties! Thanks for your short review
    One post and glorious reviews??? Hmmmm.

    All in all, this line will be put on my high list for the next samples.

    Jon and I checked these out at Roja Dove's last year - I did love Shem el Nassim - and immediately L'Heure Bleue came to mind as Scent has said. I wasn't too enthusiastic about the rest . I may just try them all again to see how my tastes have changed .

    My bottle of Shem El Nessim EdP is here and yes, my first impression was that I found it quite similar to pre-reformulation L'Heure Bleue, only softer and more subtle, as if the notes had been passed through a sieve.
    I find the concentration quite light for an EdP and the lasting power could be a bit better for the price. It is a beautiful fragrance. I got samples of the other 3 Grossmith fragrances. I will try them later this week.

    Shem el Nassim is outstanding. Bought my wife a bottle when it was first released. It's half empty now. The others I did't care for too much. Betrothal is down right disgusting - a real scrubber IMHO.

    Just sampled Betrothal (It is a pretty floral but I, personally, don't find it that special) and Hasu No Hana (a deep and spicy beauty). Hasu No Hana might be bottle worthy for me.

    The only one that really stood out was Hasu No Hana but sadly the longevity was not great (and for the price I would expect better) so that's a deal-breaker for me.

    Wearing Hasu-no-hana today for the last time (my sample is all gone). This stuff is gorgeous but like tiffingirl mentioned above I really had to drench myself in my sample for it to 'stick'. Which IMO is a good thing (here in Miami - it's HOT today!). A lighter, easy-to-wear Emeraude is how I'd describe this. I love it. But it's way overpriced. For that money I'd spring for a limited or vintage Guerlain.

    Have you tried Shem El Nissim? A little goes a long way on me and it lasts all day!

    Yes choquette, I have - although the scent is so different. Much more like L'Heure Bleue.
