    Default What's your favorite frag that you'll never own

    Title says it all...could be that you can't afford it, it's been discontinued, it makes your significant other ill...whatever.

    Definitely Lalfeorosa by O'driù, as I will never be able to afford its approximate $1200 a bottle price tag despite it being in my top 10. :-(

    The original/vintage Jazz by YSL in black and white bottle... it's been discontinued long time ago and I couldn't find it anywhere. It's one of the first colognes that inspired me to this hobby.

    Creed OS. Individuel is close enough for me

    Default Re: What's your favorite frag that you'll never own

    Diaghilev by Roja Dove - It costs about £700 from Harrods.

    Don't have any yet. If I like it that much, I figure I'll find a way to get at least a decent size decant of it at some point. Then again, I won't likely get my hands on a sample of a frag that I absolutely couldn't ever afford.

    Shingl by Xerjoff

    Notes:
    bergamot, basil, anise, artemisia, iris, rum, patchouli, vetiver, vanilla, amber and musk

    I don't need a full bottle as it is too pricey and nobody seems to have a decant for sale. Oh well...

    Guerlain Elixir Charnel Gourmand Coquin; I just cannot justify the price for it so I will probably never buy. I won't wear it enough to enjoy it because I would be too afraid to use it up.

    Clive Christian C. Gorgeous stuff, but silly expensive. And smells an awful lot like the cheaper Tuscan Leather.

    for now it's Givenchy Pi.

    I really enjoy it, find it intriguing and complex at times... but overall it's just too sweet for me. The bottle is also a work of art; but, I know I'll never finish the sample atomizer I have let alone enough to warrant purchasing an entire bottle...

    ...for now... hahaha

    Clive Christian X. Absurd price point and sketchy longevity = no sale. And I think I might have found a suitable stand in.

    Xerjoff Irisss is fantastic. Unfortunately, so is the price-tag.

    Tribute Attar Amouage. VERY VERY expensive, and the current batches don't smell like the original
    Creed Windsor, the original formula

    I'm thinking it will be Dune. I keep liking it just enough to keep smelling it and never buy it.
