    Hey Kalli, what's up? GIT and Cool water have similar vibes. Both are fresh, masculine, and sporty; but GIT is greener, smoother, and its quality is alot better than CW. CW has an alcohol-y, harsh opening, but I understand the GIT comparison.

    As for Aspen, I honestly forgot what it's like. It's been a long time since I sprayed that one.

    A gift for a lady friend of mine. I love the smell of this stuff, hopefully she does too! At the very least, she's sure to enjoy the very chic bottle.

    I finally splurged on a bottle of Secret Garden



    It's a gorgeously indolic jasmine and rose, with a beautiful blue lotus note which is reminicent of gardenia. A lovely fruity raspberry and real vintage civet and castoreum with aged patchouli in the base... yes, it's as gorgeous as it sounds, and 100% natural. So glad to finally own this, can't wait for it to arrive!

    +1 on your assessment re. the bottles! i have dark aoud and i have felt the same. could it be so that the overall costs are kept low? that's what i'm thinking. i can buy brand new montale (various ones) for around £70 something on ebay.

    Nice purchases alfarom!

    Can you believe it I have not smelt Oud Cuir d'Arabie Is it similar to anything I have or have smelt? I heard it's similar to Oud 27 (which I have and love but sillage/longevity is crap). A blind buy seems to be in order...what say you?!

    What does the Cuioi smell like?

    What does the Cuioi smell like?
    Scent, Aoud Cuir D'Arabie should be an acquired taste for you. It's a very classic rosey-oudy concoction with a STRONG animalic leather note on top that slowly merges with the base during the fragrance's evolution. Less raunchy than Oud27 and in the oud universe, I would classify it as more "classically oriental". That being said, I still find it one of the best iteration of the oud-leather combo of the western market. Up there with Leather Oud IMO (yet nowhere similar).

    Cuoio is just gorgeous. I was just saying to Hedonist that I don't know why i waited so long to get a full bottle of this stuff. Haute Perfumerie...

    Lucky maid!

    I recently received a £50 gift token for House of Fraser and spent it on AdP Colonia (original).



    Plus a small decant of Interlude Man just landed.
