    A curio cabinet for fragrances sounds pretty sweet - I hear those tinting kits can be a pain if you are not careful and patient. Good luck getting all that set up - you should post a picture when you do!
    Woot. Let me know what you think of the Creed BdC. I'm interested in the Tiffany frag as well; got Chergui recently - I like it, .

    I will post a pic! Hopefully the order comes complete, and not missing a door or something, haha.
    However most of my frags are in their boxes, so it may not look as 'flashy' as other pics that people have posted with exposed bottles.

    Flying back from Japan today, went to the Hermès shop at Narita. Got a gift set of four 15 ml Hermessences: Iris Ukiyoé, Poivre Samarcande, Vanille Gallant, and Santal Massoïa. It turned out to be somewhat cheaper than had I gotten them at the Hermès boutique here. About $130 versus $145 plus tax. The SA quoted me at $123 for the current exchange rate.

    Thanks, Jack. Your comments about this one were a strong influence on this buy. I expect to get a lot of wearings in the coming spring and summer months.

    My review is post #19. Overall, the scent is very nice but it doesn't last long.

    For moi:
    le-male-terrible-by-jean-paul-gaultier_56507_big.jpg

    Womanity is such a sexy scent I can't get enough of it!

    As for Le Male Terrible...Le Male was one of my first major purchases in the fragrance world and I loved it. Then my nose just clung to the lavender (which is one of the few notes that makes me insta-hate a fragrance) so I ended up selling by bottle. I braved trying out it's flanker after a year or so of not smelling that god awful original...Love it! It's literally what I'd loved about the original with all the stuff I hated removed, AND has vetiver, a note I love but doesn't agree with my skin usually. Crazy part is I got it yesterday and one of my roomates randomly came in and said "Damn man, what's the cologne, I gotta get some of that!" It's very rare for me to get compliments because I usually wear such small amounts of fragrances.
