    Thanks for posting this Joe. I tested Arctic Jade at Fragranze 2011 but it didn't impress me. It striked me as sort of aseptic type of smell...but I will surely revisit it...

    As a major glass nerd, I find myself more interested in the glassware these are packaged in than the scents themselves.

    +1 - When Agonist failed to get my attention with "The Infidels" and "Liquid Crystals", I have no interest. How about Luckyscent discounting a bottle of "The Infidels" by $170.00 just to unload it.

    I do have to give Agonist credit, where credit is do. All of their bottles will win ugliest bottles of the century awards. If I ever design my own perfume, I know who not to hire to design my bottle.

    The horrible bottles continue...here's the 'lopsided' one for Vanilla Marble:

    I have tried Black Amber. It does seem quite heavy to me. Test it first, definitely not a blind buy. As an amber hound a pass for me.
    My mom's great. I appreciate her sense of humor, patience and fondness for daytime drinking. :0)

    Extremely disapponting line IMO. Some highs and lows but overall forgettable stuff.

    Was hoping for good reviews on Black Amber, but have not heard any positives on it. If you think they are forgettable, sort of cements the notion of not even bothering to test.

    If I'd have to pick up two to give them another chance, they would be Black Amber and The Infidels. Let your nose be the judge.
