    New Formualtion Fahrenheit

    My speculation about the fuss between the new and the old formulations of Fahrenheit changed dramatically. I compared them side-by-side and holy cow!..it's like they're 2 different fragrances! The vintage is definitely superior..smokey, animalic, greener, darker, sexier. The new formulation will certainly get its use during the summer months with the more prominent mandarin notes.

    Bought Fujiyama Homme at Ross tonight. It is very similar to Issey Miyake's L'eau D'Issey. Not only is the scent similar, the box and bottle are obviously styled in a similar fashion. The boxes color scheme and the bottle's shapes are similar to Mr. Miyake's cologne. It's actually pretty nice for $10.

    Dunhill Edition

    The first fragrance I ever purchased at sixteen years old in 1987. And the last time I wore this was in 1989 so it has a lot of memories attached to it. I just hope any reformulation since then will not be so different from what I remember, fingers crossed for tomorrow.

    I like it but I can't smell it after 1 hour which is unusual for me. I really can't justify the purchase. The SA gave me some extra carded Royal Oud samples. They have your name on it.

    Crap! Now I have to get that one, too - that bottle is too cool. I recently saw a new red leather jacketed EDT in Paris - called Cuir d'Habit edition, I think. Do you know if that one is the same formulation as the current glass EDT? I would assume so, since they are both on sale at the same time.

    Well, after fragrancenet cancelled my Bond No. 9 New Haarlem 50mL purchase, I went ahead and ordered L'Artisan - Tea for Two (100mL ) on the 50% sale, and used the remaining $$ to buy samples of:

    Puredistance - M
    Amouage - Jubilation XXV
    Comme des Garcons - 2 MAN
    Comme des Garcons - Avignon
    Tauer - L'Air du Desert Marocain

    all from Luckyscent, and then a sample of Tom Ford - Tobacco Vanille off of ebay.

    I think I'm happier this way anyways. And my order of Serge Lutens - Chergui still went through yesterday (with the 20% off fragrancenet) I love deals and new scents!

    Feuille Verte (10ml decant) by Creed



    Wore it very briefly yesterday and it's super old skool. Reminds me of the vintage Creeds in terms of style. For some odd reason, it reminds me of Kouros. Not bad, I like it. Need to finish my 10ml decant and determine if I want more.
