    Default New (?) Italian line, Parfums Bombay 1950, anyone tried them?

    Parfums Bombay 1950 is new to me, have any of you tried them?

    They have 12 fragrances and most of them seem unisex though on the sweet side, with names like Iris 655 Firenze, Patchoully 44 Sharm, Musk 700 Afgano, Barcellona 577, New Delhi 86, Dubai 43.

    I thought I would revive this thread. I have taken a look at the fragrances and they seem very interesting to me. Has anybody tried this house out? Any thoughts.

    I have 4-5 samples to test - I put them aside because they're not listed on Basenotes yet, I usually prefer to review stuff listed here first. I am much skeptical about the quality, though (as I've learned to be with 99% of new niche lines - especially Italian ones).

    Im looking forward to your thoughts. Some of the pyramids look interesting. BTW, do they ship worldwide?

    Thanks Rex

    Thanks Rex
    A friend throwed them in a bag for a swap! I think a shop gave them to her. Specifically I have: Negril, Dubai, Sorrentino Confetto, New Delhi, Iris Firenze. I can test them in the next days and send them to you (although I see they sell them in their webshop: http://www.negoziobombay.it/shop_online.html - but they seem a bit pricey to me, I'll be happy to send them if you want)

    First, thank you so much for generous offer. Ive learned that it can very expensive to ship from Italy to Canada. So I'll purchase them myself.
    Thanks again. Looking forward to your thoughts.

    I'm also looking forward to reading your reviews, Colin. The line was listed for inclusion in the directory in 2012, the same date I created this thread, so it should be here...any moment now..

    I received a nicely packaged parcel today from Parfums Bombay 1950. I received samples of the entire line(22 samples)Each is 1.6mls.
    The samples were housed in a hard white coffret with dried flowers at the bottom inside the coffret. So far so good. After a cursory sniff this is going to be very interesting.
