    Just blind ordered Quorum. A no brainer for the price (£10 for 100ml) and i'm curious to see if it's as super-manly as everyone says!
    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?

    I get heavenly watermelon+sea salt with this batch.

    I have used 120ml MI Batch: A3310B03 with no watermelon note at all. By the way, the tester at Creed counter has really lush watermelon, I should looking at the batch number next time.

    Though, I'm concerned, if you look at the cap, the letters are a blue color, yet on the official website, they're black. (http://www.bondno9.com/images/photos...jpg?1253522145) What gives? Trying to make look more attractive on Bond's site and that's not the actual look or?

    Lead us not into temptation...

    Today I DIDN'T buy French Lover (but it would have been an impulse purchase if it were $50 cheaper), Sequoia and Avignon. I was so close to giving into the impulse. Now I must be strong and convince myself I'm better off buying decants of these as well as the rest of the incense line rather than a FB of just a couple of scents.
