    Received it today. Love it. Rich, rosy, yet not too strong, very sophisticated sort of scent. Very nice. Curious what other perfumes in their star sign collection smells like. Maybe will order their 3ml discovery spray.

    This weekend only though, so if you've been thinking of springing for something you've sampled in their line (blind buys not advised) this is your chance.

    Bought this one today. I love the minty clean feeling - I don't get a toothpaste vibe at all. This is one of those fragrances you can spray liberally and not worry about it becoming cloying. It lasts a long time too, which is surprising considering how light and fresh it is.

    Bought a tola of 'Royal Dark Musk' from the Arabian Oud store on Oxford Street. Its just wonderfully complex and way more refined than the now infamous Ajmal AA Musk Gazelle (1st and most definitely even more so from the 2nd batch). Its so wonderful on its own cant take wrist off my nose. Seems to go practically with anything interms of layering and just amplifies the layered fragrance that much more. Longetivity is outstanding and so is the silage. Its an animalic musk derived from the gazelle but the animalic nature is very much tamed and refined. Starts of with dark fruity liquirish, than intensly dark smoky flowers almost indolic then finally sweet leathery honey. The whole transition is very smooth and lacks any harshness one would expect from such dark musks.

    Loving this already. Actually reminds me of something Amouage would make, only less complex. Don't pick up any oud though strangely enough.



    This one has surprised me. Didn't care much for it after sampling on store a few times. Saw a bottle for sale online for £15 though and took a low risk gamble. After a full wearing, I have to say that I enjoyed it quite a bit. I don't own many fresh scents but this one is a keeper.

    Being that I too am on a buying freeze I decided to try something very cheap that I had read gets compared to LeMale...



    Cuba Gold

    Got it from Ross 6.99 for a 3.4oz...I couldn't pass it up. It was a blind buy and I must say I am very impressed with the "truck stop" fragrance. Lasted a very long time with a small half spray, could even get whiffs of it after a shower. My mom actually liked it, and when her and I went to eat at Olive Garden our waitress said one of you smell very good. Lol this was 2 mins after my half spray. So I will try tomorrow for a full wearing and see how it goes.

    Oh yeah has some similarities to LeMale, yet this is a lot more toned down, and better imo.

    Shalimar (Parfum de Toilette) by Guerlain



    This was a blind buy...sort of. I own vintage EdC, new Parfum and vintage Parfum, plus the Ode de la Vanille, but I have only smelled EdP not Parfum de Toilette, which signifies it is vintage. But my fellow Guerlain Fan Club Member rubegon has already pre-approved this one so I felt comfortable bidding on one on eBay, and I think I paid a fair price for it considering the supply of this stuff is quickly dwindling.

    Good luck with that.
