    That discount code is bullox anyways. The original eBay price was $25. DrScent charges $29.95 for Fresco on their website, so with the coachrob discount, it brings it back down to the original asking price of $25.

    Fortunately, the sample (2ml for $2) still ships free from the Ilum Dean site. I just ordered a sample this morning.

    Let's see if this thing lives up to the hype...

    I ordered the sample lastnight off the fresco website,today I get a email from their paypal saying it was shipped out. but The note to buyerinvoice said its the 3.3 size On my Emai...but charged only the 2ml sample size. Did anyone else get this odd invoice ?

    Yes. I'm sure it won't confuse them when they see the payment amount . . .

    I guess we'll have to wait until Monday for 50 "first impressions" posts.



    They should re-release this in a couple of months in a tall slender bottle with a paper label and a $120 price tag. It will be a hit.

    Lol if they send out 3.3ml vials instead of 3.3oz bottles to the buyers, and we never hear of Ole' Ilum Deam again.

    Just got my shipping notice. Looks like they decided to ship a 2ml sample with UPS, so I'm sure I'll get hit with a $15-20 UPS fee, great.

    Thanks for offering Oupavoc! Was your bottle shipped with UPS? I figured for $2 what have I got to lose, but we'll see what happens.

    Hmm...so they're shipping samples with UPS, and bottles with USPS, ok then. Hopefully it's just a typo or something, but my receipt clearly says Shipper: UPS.

    wow. just bought a sample myself. I mean, being a creative professional i HATE IT when people straight up copy someone else's work. But if this smells just like aventus i might just have to buy a bottle of this. On a side note I have mixed feelings about the hypetrain on this one. I have aventus as pretty much my signature scent and if the hypetrain goes crazy and a whole bunch of people start buying the cheap bottle and my aventus is no longer unique that would really suck. Even worse if a year from now fresco becomes like really popular and people think i'm wearing fresco when i spent $350 on my aventus =( =(

    Not to be frag-snobbish or anything. but I would be really pissed having paid so much for something and then someone else thinking that the cheapo knockoff is the original =T. on the other hand if its a good frag at a fraction of the price, as a consumer i would totally just buy the cheaper one....If i were creed though i would sue the living bejeezus ouf of ilum dean tho...lol

    Bottle has been purchased. I wonder how this will compare to the smokier 2010 Aventus which I have. I have tried the more fruity versions but no longer have the samples to compare Fresco to. Anyways Ill be sure to report back when it gets here next week.

    I wouldn't worry about that. Most non-BN people have never heard of Aventus, never mind Ilum Deam.
