    Default ross blind buys today

    Picked up Mont Blanc Individuel 50ml and Cuba Gold by pdc 100ml for a grand total of $35.
    I am liking both! My faith in blind buys is going up. My current track record for bottles is 1 really good, 1 pretty good, 1 decent and 1 badish.

    Mont Blanc Individuel is a fantastic fragrance, especially for the price.

    I really like the Pure Instinct, nice winter musk with a touch of coconut.

    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?

    There is a middle part before Individuel dries down full where I get a synthetic soap on my skin. The opening and base are great for the money, though. Cuba is a good backup for work or gym.

    Absolutely love Mont Blanc Individuel, its pretty much identical to Creed Original Santal for a fraction of the cost. There are some slight differences, but most won't notice. One of the best value fragrances out there in my opinion.
    Summer 2013 Top 10 :

    1. Creed Aventus
    2. Dior Homme Sport (2012)
    3. L'Eau Bleue D'Issey
    4. Bleu de Chanel
    5. Acqua dio Gio Essenza
    6. Strange Invisible Perfumes - Peloponnesian
    7. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    8. Diesel Green Masculine
    9. Terre d'Hermes
    10. Guerlain Homme

    Any chance you could post a picture of that 1000ml Fierce bottle beside a standard bottle? I've been intrigued about the size of the bottle since hearing of its limited release.

    Mid-month score = Ungaro II (via another successful Basenotes swap), Azarro Silver Black (another successful Basenotes swap), and four more Smell Bents - Frankensmellie "Dark Green Citrus" (absolutely heavenly), "Scrooged Pooch" (a holiday chypre), "Jackie-O-Lantern" (a holiday gourmand), and "Mocktail" (a fizzy citrus).

    There is currently a bottle for sale on french ebay. Just double check as the seller has posted "Escada Eau de Toilette pour Homme 100ml" but the ad is showing the picture of a bottle of Escada Magnetism for men. Good luck !

    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).

    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.

    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 )
