    I'm still trying to figure out what's happening during its evolution but, so far, I'm loving it. Overall I'd classify it as one of the most "abstract" and synthetic deliveries from this house (together with Stephen Jones, Guerrilla 1, the Odeurs, Dry Clean and Skai)...good news...

    Found a 100ml bottle of vintage pre-reformulation YSL M7 today, complete in cellophane etc. Bought it blind since it seems to be quite a legend.

    Smells very good, but dunno if its for me yet. Its very good, but kind of sweet and medical for my taste. Might have to let it go for something else.

    I ordered a bunch of stuff from the L'Artisan sale. They came today!

    Passage d'Enfer, 50 ml.
    Piment Brûlant, 50 ml.
    Poivre Piquant, 50 ml.
    Tea For Two, 100 ml.

    I own all except Passage d'Enfer already.... PB and PP in 15 ml sizes and a Tea For Two in 100 ml. WIth all the talk about it getting discontinued, I thought I would get a back up bottle. I may give it to a friend as a present, though.

    There was a 5th scent ordered and it wasn't included in the shipment. I'm not sure if it's on backorder, or never to come. I wrote L'Artisan about what's up, so hope to hear from them soon about it.

    Just bought 30ml bottles of PdN's New York, Balle de Match and Cedrat Intense. I have owned 100ml bottles of the latter two before, but sold them last year as I doubted I'd ever get through them. Recently decided I missed them, so the 30mls are a sort of compromise .

    I tried some CW and it almost turned my stomach, exactly like a fake creed scent I had the displeasure of trying once.
