    Yes. Your huge stash of fragrances that you are carrying in your check in baggage is a potential threat to the aircraft's security during flight. Are you not aware that 'fragrances are considered to be dangerous goods due to their inflammability' and therefore cannot be transported through air?

    For a variety of reasons, today I ordered:

    Zino Davidoff because it is said to be out of production and is fairly highly regarded. Still easily available online.
    Baldessarini because it is said to be the best of the Hugo's, and
    Jean Marie Farina by Roger & Gallet because it is said to represent the origins of the EdC genre

    All three for under a hundred - and all worthy additions to any wardrobe, I think.

    I have waited a while for this one so mostly pleased to have gotten my hands on it at last. Two noses behind this classic, though their names elude me at the moment.

    Haven't had a chance take it out of the box yet--lovely design and color scheme--but will test it later tonight or tomorrow morning.

    Oh, and can anyone compare to the vintage version? Thanks.
