    No - but I'd bet DSH 's will be better than The Fragrance shop . I did look at her website and saw she has some vintage types - maybe I will try DSH the next time. The Fragrance Shop's samples were definitely scrubbers- that plastic note was horrid.

    Today I sampled 10 Corso Como, this is actually the second time that I have sniffed it. I was looking for some good sandalwood frags when I picked up the sample.

    I like it a lot, but not sure I love it. It is a very peaceful scent. Fresh and woodsy and rather quiet...maybe a little too quiet. Clean smelling, smooth and classy. And since I am trying to broaden my horizons, this is certainly different from anything I currently own.

    Lasts about three hours max on my skin.

    Phew! I thought for a second you were talking about the real Vol de Nuit. I really need to get some more before the Grim Reaper decides to visit the current formula...

    Please, no more revisiting of the formula Guerlain !

    yes, Vol de Nuit type was horrible- I don't even know why I thought The Fragrance Shop could replicate it in the first place. An exercise in futility !
