    I don't get Slumberhouse and O'Driù to be similar at all but they're definitely two of the most interesting houses of the last 5 years or so. I'm so glad these people are getting some attention. Whether you'll like their fragrances or not, they surely push the whole perfume thing a step forward (or beyond, if you prefer). They challenge, stimulate, provoke, disgust, thrill, excite, move, gross out, enchant or whatever other feeling depending on one's personal approach but, in the end, they won't leave you indifferent.

    If we assume that fragrance can be an art just like music, painting, poetry and cinema, just like those forms of art, it is not necessarily meant to simply entertain. Art can be much more than entertainment sometimes...

    Enjoy your experience, keep your minds open.

    @Alfarom-LOL, I live in an apartment and the initial parcel was too big to be delivered. Therefore, I went down to the Post Office to pick it up. Of course there was a line-up, I think pretty much everyone saw the gigantic PLEASURE FACTORY labelling. To hide, or to spite my embarressment I said to clerk, "Don't fuss, its not inflatable."

    Sweating I took the parcel and scampered into the night.

    This will be happening again, a few newer samples are on their way..............

    What to say this time?

    Lol, I had the same awkward moment yesterday when I picked up my samples from the post office. I brushed it off and said "oh, must be the inflatable Italian girlfriend I ordered" (I'm quite comfortable with the lady at my post office).

    Wow, so many samples, It's going to take me a while to get through all these. Right now I can say that the presentation and the amount of work that goes into this sample package is amazing.

    I have yet to receive mine, which stinks since it's been a while. Maybe next week.

    Ask them for the tracking number. They send you the box with Italian Post.

    Thanks. I never got a tracking number, so I sent another message to Anna who handled my order. I'm definitely looking forward to trying these. I figure even if I don't like them, it will be nice to expand my horizons more. Does anyone know if you get the one you pee in? I really hope you do.

    I think passing the samples onto someone else instead of throwing them into the bin would have been a much nicer act towards other members who might not have access to this brand and are curious to explore it and towards the brand itself which showed some genuine generosity and put so much effort in manufacturing those samples for you. Just my two cents...

    Calm down, I haven't thrown them into the trash, just put them away until I'm ready to revisit them. But I doubt I'll ever like any of the scents. They all smell the same to me.

    Lol, you do not get Secraction as I believe it's not part of O'driu's regular line. I received a sample from trex57, it is very good stuff.

    Would you have added the secret ingridient anyways?

    It's been three weeks for me. Not worried about it, but it's nice to know that I can request a tracking number. I'll do that soon.

    Oh yeah, for sure. I mean it's weird, but I'd love to try it out sometime.

    I didn't get a tracking number either, I found it on the parcel itself after it had arrived. But I wanted to know where my package was and Anna replied to me she's keeping track of it lol.

    The one you pee in? What'you mean?

    O'driu is certainly setting the bar high. If they can get all that into a bottle they deserve 2800 Euros. Jeez, if they can get being on the edge of alwayness they deserve 2800 Euros.

    I am so intrigued by Secraction, mainly as a self-challenge. Even though I _think_ I'm bold and courageous, do I actually have the guts to piss into a tube mixed with aromatics, then splash it on my neck, and walk around in public with a "straight face" ????? If I did, I'd smell like lots of vitamins and coffee and vodka

    Hahahaha alas not all those notes are in the one bottle - those are the more choice accords I picked from their high-end range.
    But yes, alwayness is rarer than hen's teeth

    Thank you for giving directions on how to get samples from O'Driu. It worked well. I got my sample pack this this morning from "The Pleasure Factory" - it was signature required for delivery! A funny moment really.

    The fragrances are fantastic, thick, opulent, rich, and densely assembled. The included photos, feathers and envelope displays set a mood and atmosphere for the fragrances. Very plush! My favorites after brief testing are: Vis et Honor, Linfidele Haiku, Supercillium, and Laiferosa. But many others are good too, but these stood out. All of the O'Driu fragrances are challenging and have a hyperreal quality because of the intensity and variety of ingredients. The combinations are very artistic statements. More testing is needed.

    Man, I wonder where the heck mine are? Did they deliver them to your house, or did you get a receipt saying you had to go to the post office? I've gotten nothing, and no tracking or information whatsoever.

    Had it sent to my office. It was sent "Signature Required".

    Interesting, although they charge 9,90 euro, cost them 18 euro to mail.
