    Default Been gone since April....What did I miss???

    Hello everyone. I had a busy spring, summer, and fall. Hence the disappearance.

    Sooooo.....whats new in the world of perfumery? Any unbelievable new scents? Discontinuations? Reformulations? Revivals? What terrible stuff has the IFRA been up to? Everyone still falling over Aventus or is there a new one? Let me know.....

    What is this Aventus you speak of? Seriously, about 100 pages of threads, some inane, some good reads, the more things change...

    edit: this zoologist offering and Malle sold to Lauder are both deserved of some attention imo.

    One of the popular things out now is Dior Homme Parfum (not the intense version).

    Too many to mention. Some to note: Bleu De Chanel EDP, Pure Wood by Mugler, a boatload of Montales and Manceras etc.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    I saw the Zoologist offerings and they interest me a little bit. Not a huge fan of the Muglers, like em but no love. Montale already had a boatload out, now they have more?

    I saw that Tea for Two is being brought back, that would extremely excite me if I hadn't already bought an overpriced bottle of it.

    Plenty has come out. In addition to what's been mentioned:

    Designer:
    -Paco Rabanne's Invictus hit the US. This one seems to be either love or hate.
    -Issey Miyake launched Nuit d'Issey, an oriental.
    -Boss Bottled Night is now widely distributed in the US - previously, it was exclusive to Sephora.

    Niche:
    -By Kilian came out with three new scents. Trying them over the next few days.
    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    My mission statement: "I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone."

    The Invictus and Valentino don't look up my alley. I looked up the Kilians a day ago and recall one of them sounded interesting. Ive secretly loved Boss Bottled Night for about a year and a half now, even though I don't own a bottle yet. Something about it really sings to me but all the reviews have kept me from buying it for fear of smelling generic. I know that's pathetic on my part. Maybe this year will be the year I buy it.

    I saw Amouage has come out with Journey, sounds like it could be a winner. That and AdP Colonia Leather. As well as a current battle with myself over TF Italian Cypress and Halston Z14.

    Tralala just went on my 'to test list.' It looks like it has some potential. If its been an uninteresting past few months, I may spend this winter catching up. Still have a few classics that I want to get in the vintage form before that stock dries up.

    Whats the latest word on Tom Ford London making it to the U.S.?
