    Couple of nostalgia purchases.

    1. Lagerfeld Photo (vintage). This is the scent that made me fall in love with fragrances, back in 1992. I have a bottle of the new formulation, but it's not nearly like what I remember. I wonder what I'll think of it when I finally smell it again? (It should be here by the end of the week.)

    2. Hermes Rocabar. It's been years since I owned a bottle of this. I got so caught up in trying new things that I never got around to replacing the bottle I finished. But I smelled it at Neiman a couple weeks ago and was reminded just how much I loved this one.
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    I got it from eBay. My second purchase of the bottle because the first one I bought was fake. If you find one on there for less than 80 Euros then it's probably fake (100 ML).

    Here is the thread I make a couple weeks ago. You can tell by the pictures that the word Escada was taped to the bottle and in the wrong position.

    When I first read it I thought it was a typo. Then, I googled it and HOLY MOTHER OF GOD, 1L of pure abs hahahaha
    Looking forward to see this comparison

    I didn't really intend to buy this till spring but put in a very low bid on EBAY. I was first and only bidder and got a 2.5 oz for 75$. Now I'm paranoid that it's to good to be true and am worried about a fake LOL.

    2X75ml splash bottles of French-made Montana Parfum d'Homme Light came into my life via USPS today. Not listed in the Basenotes Directory or in PerfumeIntelligence.co.uk, this is basically a lighter version of the Red Box Montana Parfum d'Homme that seems to be slightly less expansive than, but to my nose containing all the delicious notes of, the original. I had not heard of this version until I saw it for sale here on the Basenotes For Sale Thread.

    Today I bought a bottle of YSL, Opium Pour Homme, edp. I love this juice. It is old school but dares to break new ground today. It is complex, sophisticated, and masculine.

    Today I bought A*MEN pure leather....
    And the SA gave me two 1.4 ml sample vials of it.
    they have the same box like the 100 ml parfum.
    I love this flanker much better than the original and Im sorry guys but its completely diferent from A*MEN
    even the drydown its not even close!
    And the AMAZING thing is that I bought here in Portugal, Europe at 49 euros ( US$63 dollars )

    Received my Maison Francis Kurkdjian Amyris Pour Homme and By Kilian Straight to Heaven from Luckyscent! Straight to Heaven is supposed to be my Christmas present so I didn't open it yet. Hopefully I can wait another month, haha.
