    Phillipine Houseboy... have you tried it?? Howww!!!
    Can't wait for this to be released. I looove ElDO.
    I will definitely own more of them, but for now, I'm thoroughly enjoy my bottle of Rien, the best they've done so far in my opinion! Incredible scent.

    I, too, love ELdO. It's my favorite house. I do hope they consider changing the name of Phillipine Houseboy, though. That is actually distasteful, IMO. I currently own 6 (Rien, ToF, J&C, V&T, JSuH, and PdP). I'm getting Noel au Balcon for Christmas and most of the others are on my wishlist. I will even own Secretions Magnifiques, one day out of principle, even though it makes me want to hurl. Viva l'ELdO!

    Yay! Haha. I love it when people like ELdO, so many people slate them.
    To be fair, I like the name Phillipine Houseboy, it's so blatant and harmlessly racist, I don't think it's much worse than Gorilla's Ladyboy, only that's missing the word Thai. Well, it made me laugh when I first heard of it.
    I've sampled a lot of their stuff recently, really want the sample pack, will invest in that from Escentual.
    You're list is interesting, I really want Putain des Palaces, although I just don't get the harsh dirty leather I really want to be there at the base. Tried VeT recently, loved it, but, I have SL Tubereuse Criminelle, and the menthol aspects of tuberose that appear in both of them, well, I feel I have enough of that in my SL for now, but I love the dry down! It reminded me completely of Lonestar Memories only the menthol note is explained - tuberose rather than the Tauer toothpaste accord. I really didn't like Jasmine et Cigarette, it's just a bit too trashy for me :') I wish I could wear it though. And Charogne is another I tried recently, it reminded me very much of Kenzo Amour which I love, but, with a dirtier beginning. I prefer the Kenzo though as much as I hate to admit it.
    Struggling to find the next bottle of ELdO which I have to own :P it'll probably be Putain but i'll keep sampling! But yeh, Rien is just wonderful.
    Essay there sorry :P

    This. I wanted to like it: love the concept, like Tom Of Finland, but the scent is just so... uncomfortable. Like a camp queen's peach-powdered leather pants, NOT a worn leather seat on a rocker's motorbike. No offense to the camp queen, it's just not what I expected and would have liked it to be. I guess I am very picky when it comes to leather notes...

    LL:

    despite the name, ToF is not a leather, it is primarily a lemony saffron. As such, it can be enjoyed as is as a smooth and fresh everyday thing (as CDG2 Man). And I like it a lot. I don't get any peach or camp - just regular guy comfort.

    But you are right that if you expect a true sm leather (a la Bandit), this is not it. (Neither is the incorrectly name Marquis de Sade, ie 1740).

    Good call Cacio----- the more I think about this one, it's not nearly as leathery as one might hope for---- the saffron is a major player in this affair.

    Its a great fragrance, but if you are looking for the leather angle that is portrayed in the imagery of this frag, Bandit is more Tom of Finland than Tom of Finland...

    I see. Strange that I don't like it then, as I am very fond of saffron...

    what's your take on Chanel cuir de russie? While it has no explicit saffron, it is also has a similar, smooth rendition of leather notes. Too bad Estee Lauder doesn't sell Azuree in Europe - that's a different, more worn motorbike seat, rendition.

    Thanks for the suggestion Cacio, I haven't tried that one yet. As I said, I am very picky with leathers, don't like in-your-face leathers like Etro Gomma, for instance, but I do like them when they're sweetened or contrasted like in Boxeuses or Cuir Ottoman. I definitely should try the Chanel...
