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.
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
Disclaimer: Macys had an event today. I bought Miss Dior, Vintage Bloom, Coco Noir, Coco and Youth Dew. I also received the samples I ordered. Diorissimo, Annick Goutal Ma Petit Cherie, Shiseido Femminite du bois original formula. A mini Pique. Shalimar Parfum Initial.
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).
MLSweeney where did you buy it, it's very rare in europe..
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 !
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 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.
These things cannot be long hidden: the Sun, the Moon, the Truth--Buddha
"I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day"...I don't want to miss that...

I love this flanker much better than the original and Im sorry guys but its completely diferent from A*MEN

And the AMAZING thing is that I bought here in Portugal, Europe at 49 euros ( US$63 dollars )
