    OK, I actually bought these a few days ago, but they arrived today…

    A boxed set of Cuir de Russie parfum, 3 x 7 ml. I opened one of the bottles an hour ago to dab some on, and it smells great so far. Bolder, tarrier and more leathery, but at the same time also softer and rounder.

    The date codes under the bottles say 94 U… Could it be so straightforward as to actually mean 1994? I don't know, but my guess is that these are from the 80's or early 90's. I've also seen quite a few spotty labels from that era, maybe because of the adhesive they used?

    I bought a nice gift set of Bvlgari Man. I got a fantastic evaluation from my Board of Directors this week and this is a reward to myself! No raise in this economy, but I am grateful to have a job!

    My my my my!!! That is one FANTASTIC find! Congratulations and where them in good health! BTW, how is its sillage? I'm wondering as my current parfum is pretty loud. I sure hope it's as deliciously skanky as it looks !

    Thank you! It's not a sillage bomb in any way, it stays close to the skin. It feels more leathery and animalic, maybe like a furry hide, but is so smooth that it never really crosses over into "dirty".

    Mr. Chanel... Hmm. I'm not sure I could forsake all others and remain faithful to just one brand.

    I gave this another try and i really really like it. I found it for 25 bucks for a 1.7 oz so awsome! The projection and logevity isnt as bad as i thought, and regardless of those two things, the scent itself is absolutely magnificent to me. Great addition to my wardrobe which i promised myself would not be added to til the end of the year, but fuck it!

    Was giving some serious consideration to Pure Malt, but I ultimately went home with this lovely little number:




    I was kinda hemmin'-and-hawin' because my Neiman's only had the 125ml bottles left in stock, but the very "enthusiastic" SA told me if I bought the bottle she'd put together I nice gift bag for me.

    "And what will be in said gift bag?"

    "Whatever you want."

    Well, I left her to her own devices while a young man rang me up. Much to my delight, I found the following in the bag alongside the Halston: 2 AdP creams; 3 AdP Colonia samples; 2 Duc De Vervins samples; 6 Tom Ford For Men samples; and 6 substantial Francis Kurkdjian Lumiere Noir samples. Paying retail never felt so good.

    Eau Verte is more wearable to a man, that's just my opinion. So, Eau verte

    Aramis Havana and Aramis Devin, 100ml each. Fragrances like these restore my faith in designer.

    I went for the Edt. I thought it was as wearable as the Eau Verte. So...
