    Yeh. I discovered Tom Ford fragrances when I was in London last week (they are not avaiable in my country), and I was imediately hooked! I bought 3 of the Private Blends + Grey Vetiver. Now it`s time for the T-F Extreeme. This must be one of the most expencive designer scents?

    Yes and it only comes in 50ml bottles. Though it does smell really expensive and it has one of the best incense notes I have smelled in a fragrance. I believe he used high quality Japanese incense amongst the many notes.

    I tried it in a hurry at Gatwick airport on my way home, and I regret I didn`t bought it. After some search, I find it at Strawberrynet ;-)

    my first creed! Although, it was on sale on a "flash sale" members type site. but not a bad buy (75ml green irish tweed for $149). I normally don't spend more than $100 on a single bottle, but figured it was ok to splurge with all the holiday shopping happening.

    They have lots more to choose from if anyone is interested http://www.beyondtherack.com/member/invite/B775A83

    Today I bought my first bottle of Kouros and my third bottle of Thierry Mugler Pure Havane. I now have three new bottles of Pure Havane, all from the same department store. I can't believe they still had one bottle in stock because I've been looking for this for months and they never had it in stock. The SAs at two different stores told me that people ask for it and wonder why it is no longer available. Who knows, but my little purchase today got the holiday season off to a great start.

    Thanks Mike. I've been craving after Onda Extrait from quite a while. I had the chance to test a prototype of Petroleum when Ghislain Introduced the Edition Rare at Fragranze 2011 in Florence in September and it really impressed me. It is, actually, quite a weird one being entirely based on juxtapositions of clear, sort of sparkling, elements (aldehydes, a marine/ozonic accord) and dark, resinous, mineral and animalic notes (Oud, Civet, Musk, Leather, Amber)...

    To answer the Paige's quote, I'd probalby be 4.

    Lovers of the cumin in Kingdom should definitely check this one out. It also has a good dollop of civet.

    Despite the nonsense notes and reactions I've discovered this to be a very normal scent.
    So far it seems more normal and less synthetic than some CdG frags.

    Check out the "You know you are a Basenoter when..." thread.

    That thread pretty much explains what we do and why we do it. Sometimes having more than one bottle is essential to one's sense of well-being. I must admit, sometimes my wife asks me the same question that you did. I always reply, "And how many pairs of shoes do you own?" Works every time.
