    Default What should be my next untradable Blind buy purchase?

    Everyone knows these I feel. That fragrance out there that has great reviews, or simply looks very promsiing, and much to your delight, is cheap! Well, relatively cheap. Cheap enough where you can justify a blind buy but not cheap enough where its a completely discardable amount of money. That fragrance which value and demand is to low to trade as well.

    I have Four contenders, any input would be very appreciated! and 3 by the same house!


    Thallium Black - Yves De Sistelle
    Ted Lapidus Black Soul
    Ted Lapidus Black Soul Imperial
    Ted Lapidus TL Pour Homme


    Thank you in advance gracious basenoters.

    I am gonna go with Black Soul. The opening notes kinda made me raise an eyebrow....as if I had been hugged by some character from Jersey Shore . But its not soo bad after a while and the dry down reveals a nice tonka accord.

    I'll have to break out my sample just to make sure.

    I have a few of these untradable blind buy purchases myself....ugh, all 4 from one entire purchase are on my swap !
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    More HERE
    Please PM me !

    Thallium Black smells a lot like Pure Malt.

    Thallium Black is very good for the low price. I recommend it. Black Soul is nice too, it reminds me quite a bit of Paco Rabanne One Million. Haven't tried the others.

    1. L'Artisan Dzing!
    2. Lorenzo Villoresi Yerbamate
    3. Guerlain Bois d'Armenie

    Thanks guys for the input! Let me percolate a bit more and go with one of them soon. I am leaning towards Thalium, I don't know why but $20 is much more palatable than $30, go figure.

    Thanks for the post, the title was actually inspired by a conversation we were having a little while ago. I have a horrible blind buy rate.

    Tried
    Ted Lapidus Black Soul
    Ted Lapidus TL Pour Homme

    Still own TL.

    Edit - What's the verdict on Ted (Green Ted). Always was tempted to try it but Blue Ted/Excited didn't grab me at all...
