Christian Dior- Dior Homme Intense 100 ml
Decided to get Azzaro Chrome for the spring: $15 at Walmart for a half-ounce travel spray.
And yes, I checked the box, and this particular bottle still has real oakmoss. But I don't think it will for much longer... with the IFRA police in full force, will my Chrome be considered "vintage" in a year or two?
Dior Eau Sauvage EDP

It came with the whole package wrapped in a thick black plastic bag (possibly new regulation to prevent leakage?). It had several stickers on it (apparantly to identify the type of material inside). It also included some International Shipping Documentation (not sure if that was there before the regulations).
@chopwet, nice haul!
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
I guess the stickers are new. Now that they are using Fedex, shipping is 58.00 to the US . When I purchased the last time, they had free worldwide shipping, so I guess we won't see that again.
My first full bottle of this.
Micallef Richard 100ml from the Private Collection
Saw this yesterday at my local fragrance shop; went back and bought it today:
Chanel for Men Spray Cologne. No cap, no box. From what I've gathered here, this is the vintage Chanel Pour Monsieur, which I've been hunting for months now.
Dior Homme Intense - on its way
Polo Ralph Lauren
NOTE: I have an original vintage mini and compared it to the juice I bought today.
Verdict: No major change - stills smells great!

Yeah... been on a small spree. I know I'm missing something.
Trumper Sandalwood, not entirely sure about this one yet, frankly, or if I'd agree that it can compete with Egoiste in any shape or form as some reviewers seem to suggest, and Diptyque L'Ombre Dans L'Eau.
Basala by Shiseido,
Basala an olfactory experience,
An aromatic blend of lavender, bergamot enhanced by Artemisia and Basel (the lavender remains throughout the entire composition)
Fir, cinnamon, caraway, carnation and jasmine are masterfully mingled, setting an introspective mood, which are sweetened by coconut, and real oakmoss (by the time Basala was conceived the strict IFRA regulations were not yet implemented, real oakmoss adds depth into a concoction, unfortunately at his point in time there are no aroma-chemical able to match the rich qualities of real oakmoss), the leather accord, amber accord and musk are underscored by hints of patchouli, and cedar wood, finishing this olfactory extravaganza.
A Self-discovery Journey: East meets West
Your vessel: Basala
Departure Harbor: Caldey Island
Basala, The Scarlet Vessel is about to departure, this is a self discovery journey, ahead of us, open oceans.
Our journey starts, the robust and fresh Northern Atlantic winds, start to propel us, soon we will be sailing along the formidable African cost, from the window of our cabin, we gaze at grandiosity of the ocean, the omnipotency of the Atlantic Ocean touches us.
In the middle of our journey, our vessel starts to experience the dark forces of nature, we have reached the point where the Atlantic ocean meets the Indian Ocean, the waters are turbulent.
We found ourselves at the mercy of the majestic and powerful currents, a dark aura envelops our vessel, we retract into ourselves, we feel small and vulnerable.
Suddenly the Ocean becomes gentle once again and our fortune changes.
The skies open up, the sun starts to warm up our souls.
We feel an atmosphere of cohesion, connection takes place, we and the elements are one, We are One!
We are about to reach our final destination, we can already feel the exoticism of the new land, mysticism is in the air...
Our journey ends, we have arrived at our destination, it is now full circle, East meets West.

It's much nicer than I thought it would be.
