    Your welcome guys,

    I too think we will get what we ordered, I have my tracking number and it says my order was shipped,

    When fragrancenet.com gets in orders like that they do not get many bottles I counted 4 people who bought it when they changed the price and even when they changed the price to $180.00 i am sure a couple of people bought it..

    I dont feel bad for fragrancenet and they really deserve my business!

    It disappeared from their listing, so I assume other people probably shelled out to pay their regular asking price for it, as I don't tend to see 200ml of the Parfum readily available most places. And they'll continue to get my business if they're upfront about this order.

    We're pleased to let you know that your order has been shipped from our
    warehouse via Fedex and the United States Postal Service with delivery confirmation.

    Yeah, apparently this doesn't exactly mean what is says. I don't think it has actually shipped yet.

    I am not sure but their website does say if you go to the shipping information page...

    U.S. orders will be shipped via UPS, DHL, or U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail. Most packages arrive within 4-7 business days. (not a guaranteed service)
    FREE for orders over $70.00.

    Yes they do, there are FedEx materials in my post office. Perhaps the different carriers are due to the distance being shipped? It may be cheaper to send by UPS to the west coast where I am? Just a thought.

    You might just have to learn to love it! I already have the Parfum and I wear it a lot. I thought I had a lifetime supply before but now I know I do.

    Yeah heperd, learn to love it. At less than $0.40/ml, this can be your everyday toss-away scent from now on (the kind where you can put it on an hour before you shower just because you want a pick-me-up). Pretty quality stuff for the price.

    Also, it's different from the EDT (if that's the one you don't like), so it may surprise you.

    The Parfum is much smoother, so you might find that you like it. You'll have no problem asterisk-ing it on the boards though if you don't.

    That's a pretty good idea. Give a few wearings before you make a decision.

    Personally, I like the EDT and the parfum, but I think the parfum definitely smells higher quality. The orange smells more natural to my nose, and it's overall smoother and rounder as Partario said. I prefer the parfum, which is good since I have a tub-full of it coming my way.

    I agree with hobbies22 in every point. I tend to reach for the edt to wear in the day time, especially if I am going out in the evening at which time I layer the parfum on top. I like the parfum more but have not worn it as often. That will change I am sure.

    Fragrantica lists...
    Top: Orange, Grapefruit
    Base: "Woodsy notes" Oak Moss, Benzoin

    I don't detect pepper in the parfum.

    In another blog review I said, "This I believe wears a bit closer to the skin than the EDT but the top notes of citrus last longer. Where the EDT slowly melts the citrus giving way to pepper and ending with a delicious cedary aroma, the Pure Parfum for me keeps more of the citrus through and through and has a deeper, richer aroma of benzoin mixed with wood and citrus. For me the Parfum does not have the same earth or flint smell, or at least not nearly as prominent. This Parfum seems to be a bit more linear in its progression and closer to the skin."

    As Akahina pointed out, the parfum doesn't seem to have any pepper. In fact, much of the sharpness found in the edt is gone in the parfum.

    There is a certain translucence to the edt that is gone in the parfum, which is why some prefer the edt. Personally, I love the smoothness of the parfum more.

    Wow, it panned out then. Major cheers to you DavidBee for putting us onto this one. Hopefully mine arrives within the next week, so I can start debating if I'll open it or not.
