    (I availed myself of the 15% off sale at parfum1.com, squeaking in with over an hour and a half to spare, assuming it will end at midnight hour of New York.

    I stocked up on things ostensibly for Mr cathodera, but not being a respector of gender differences in fragrance, I will not hesitate to consider them "ours" and perfume myself at will).

    I really can't pick it out, but it's a strange and great smell. I wore six sprays because I felt it was too light for less, but when you actually wear it, it really blooms. I'd go 4 next time. Very professional and slick smelling.

    Quietly, this chypre has overtaken Mitsouko, in my ultimate-chypre-love. I am eternally grateful that now I have a full bottle, to outlast my slowly dwindling decant bottle. Yay!!

    I also got two samples I've never smelled before: Jicky parfum by Guerlain, both vintage and new juice.

    Bought blind, based on the notes and a good price. My initial impression is that it's a lot like Bogart,
    maybe a bit softer/warmer. Not a bad start - I guess I'll see what it's really like after a few wears.

    Tested this numerous times, and I love how deceptive this one can be. It's light, yet strong at the same time.


    I'm getting this one blind. Was somewhat torn between this and Epic (which I have tried), but based on the reviews so far, I kinda think Reflection will be more wearable. Helps that reviewers like Vibert owns a bottle of this, so I'm sure I'll like it too

    Love the stuff!

    If you bought directly from DSH then of course you've seen that the scent is discontinued. (The good news being that remaining stock is discounted.) My possibly crackpot theory is that the composition requires Mysore sandalwood, which as you know has become nearly impossible to source...

    Douce Amere. Is this confirmed to be discontinued? I still see it is available on the main Lutens website. Anyhows, just thought it would be wise to get it now, just in case, it starts to dwindle.
