    Default Quick ("first") impressions.

    Just got an order from Luckyscent in..

    Judging quickly within less than 15 mins of them being on my skin

    Jubilation XXV (sample vial, not sprayed) - smells .. close to TdH?

    Frapin 1270 - Thought of One Million

    HdP Olympia, Music Hall - Like a small bar of soap that comes individually wrapped in a hotel/motel.

    Haha. Don't flame me, just some like quick initial impressions from me.

    I own Frapin 1270 and HdP Olympia and think they're very good scents. Your opinions will probably change over time for the better or worse.

    What's your thoughts on how they smell?

    I wasn't saying I don't like the smell of them though, in case anyone has/will thought/think that.

    Hmm. I don't get a strong resemblance between XXV and TdH. I can see the link between 1270 and 1 Million, but 1270 is considerably more subtle, I think.
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    Interesting; for the first two comparisons (can't speak to the third), those were nowhere near my experiences.

    I vaguely recall Jubilation reminding me of Bois du Portugal, but I am not sure why. I may have to re-try them.

    I think I may be the only person to like One Million more than 1270 right now, but I do. I like Frapin's other scents a bit more at this point.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Strange impressions to say the least! I think after you test 1270, and Jub XXV again you'll see that they're very different from 1 Million and TdH respectively.
