    Default JAR Bolt of Lightning, Chypre Palatin, Invasion Barbare

    * Your split will not be atomized.
    * Oxygen in the bottle will be replaced with inert gas.
    * A full accounting of all price components will be supplied.
    * If a decant is involved, I will post a video of the process.
    * The original bottle will be made available to one split participant, either the person taking the largest share or one selected at random.
    * I cannot be responsible for lost or broken items during transit, although I will certainly do my best to help you if something goes wrong. I have given away my own portions of splits for broken items. If you want delivery tracking, you will have to pay the additional cost.


    This is not a business. It's a community service. We share the liabilities just as we share the cost.



    Note: The size of this split was authorized by stuigi

    There will be no more splits from me going forward. The rules change faster than I can keep track of. The latest change to the rules has put me in violation of policy mid-split. And I have been disqualified from hosting more than one split at a time. When you host rare/expensive scents that sometimes take months to fill up, this is totally impractical. Thank you, that's enough for me.

    It depends on how fast the splits fill up. Some splits take weeks. I will let you know before the last Jarling spot is spoken for.

    No website. No pyramids. They are kind of secretive. This annoys a lot of people.

    Here's a Basenotes thread discussing JAR pyramids.

    Here's a comment left by Christopher Brosius (CB I Hate Perfume) about JAR and their lack of published notes on the Now Smell This blog:



    And yes you can take more than one slot. But let me tell you a little goes a long way. I would probably think twice about taking more than one share.

    This is exactly what I was going to suggest.
    I have bought several perfumes from the US and selected International Priority or was it International Priority Express. Arrives in less that a week and contains a tracking number too.

    Ok good news for international shipping: USPS has trackable intn'l Priority Mail for $47.95. This includes the UK, Australia, and UAE.

  18. #18

    Default Re: JAR Complete Line of Fragrances

    Correction: International shipping is $42 extra because there was already a shipping cost built into the split price. Canada is $26 extra. This is a flat rate for anywhere between 1 and 7 bottles.

    This is trackable and insured.

    Default Re: Creed Windsor / JAR Complete Line

    A bit of good news on the JAR splits. (This does not apply to Windsor because the bottles are too big.) I picked up a "Small Flat Rate Box" from the post office, and the metal tin I'm shipping in fits with plenty of room to spare. This means that international shipments can be made for only $18 extra (or $12 extra for Canada). I updated the main post accordingly.

    Here is a better picture of the bottles and the shipping tin for JAR.

    Another update on JAR: some of the smaller orders will be shipping tomorrow. The remainder will be shipping toward the end of the week. Please let me know when you receive your item that it arrived without leaking; I have never shipped these 3ml bottles before, and I'd like some feedback before I start sending out the large sets. Thanks!

    Default Re: Vintage Derby, Frédéric Malle travel sprays, JAR Shadow, Golconda, Diamond Water

    I have sent out a message to everyone participating in Golconda. Its production is temporarily stopped, and the boutiques are out. They offered me an opportunity to buy a bottle of the vintage 80s formula for about twice the price. I am giving priority to people who already signed up and paid for the new Golconda; but PM me if you are interested in a slot. I suspect not everyone will want to pay the extra $.

  32. #32

    Default Re: Vintage Derby, Frédéric Malle travel sprays, vintage JAR Golconda

    My Jarling arrived with zero leakage! I don't think those little glass bottles would leak at all. The roller is quite nice and stingy with the application, which is good for something this strong. I'm in heaven. It is so beautiful that it literally makes my knees weak. The drydown is definitely that same cockroach spray goodness I remembered from the boutique, but holy shit, what an amazing and unexpected opening it has! Gorgeous spicy carnation. It makes me salivate and I feel just a little drunk.

    And thank you for the unexpectedly amazing extra gifts! All three of these fragrances make me want to die (in a good way). I actually picked up something specifically for you a few weeks ago that I think you would really like and I'll be sending it in the mail in a few days along with a few perfumes and some other strange things.

    The complete JAR sets are now going out as well! JAR split is done. I reserved a couple of sets to trade or sell later. Thanks for everyone who participated.

    A few of the later orders (placed last week) will go out Wednesday. A few of the 3ml bottles had wonky caps, so I had to get some replacements.

    I would beg to differ. Heperd and Kron make very fancy bottles. I just have my ghetto labelmaker. Although that may change tonight. I need to slap something on those Derby bottles.

    I am closing this until I hear from the OP. The minimum split on 90 ml. is 15 ml.

  45. #45

    Default Re: Non-Atomized Splits: Patou, Invasion Barbare, Frédéric Malle travel sprays

    I am just going to delete the Patou PH split. The availability of the bottle is now questionable, and 3fl oz = 88.7ml. It's also vintage, and it's been my experience that vintage bottles often have are missing a few ml off the top (evaporation? I don't know why this happens so often). At any rate, 85ml-88ml is not easily divisible into 15ml splits, so I'd either be mis-representing the amount or I'd be pocketing the leftover; and I think either scenario would be shady on my part. I like to be totally transparent about what someone is getting in a split.

    I'd be OK with a 15ml "nominal" split that's 1/6 of whatever is in the bottle. It won't be less than 14ml. Is that not acceptable, stuigi?

    The split also did not fill up quickly enough to secure the $299 bottle. There are just too many variables here for me to ensure that everyone's going to end up happy.

    No problem, Brian. Hopefully another case dumps within the next year. I think this sudden availability may scare up enough prepared interest for a successful split the next time!
