Thought I'd treat myself seen as its my birthday on Monday, so it was a toss up between this and Tuscan Leather, though this was actually a blind buy.
In Vegas I got:
Shalimar Shower Gel by Guerlain
Anima Dulcis by Arquiste
Shanghai by Guerlain (from the Voyage Series)
Blackberry & Bay Body Cream by Jo Malone
Plus a TON of samples. My cup runneth over...
"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in — or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."
-- Eckhart Tolle

2 purchases today at Debenham's after not buying anything for almost 2 months.
I've had enough with you, A*Men
Took advantage of the free worldwide shipping.
Actually I enjoy all three scents. Spicebomb and MIP for evening wear, fierce for daily wear. All three serve a very good purpose. Good reviews. Thank you.
And no, I don't think it is similar to 1 Million
Hope that helps!
Nice one buddy. I'm going to Debenhams tomorrow, so I'll give it a try. I was going to get Spicebomb too, but it was a bit overpowering when I tested it. Great smell though.
Blind buy on this one. Heard equally great and terrible things which intrigued me enough to take a punt on it.
Tojours Fidele by Fragonard 200ml
Finally caved in. I was at the store for a long time after trying the tester, sniffing through the lipstick opening (which was much better than I remembered it being) until I got to the "chocolate-covered iris" that some say was there, and I fell in love. Just goes to show that you should never judge a fragrance on the first sniff. I was also pleasantly surprised when I bought the box home - it was the original formulation!
For a mere $65 for the 2.5oz. Now I wonder if I should just open it up and keep it or leave it sealed and try to sell it somewhere. Tough choice. This is the rarest fragrance I own now.
