    Lightbulb April fragrance haul - what did you buy ?

    Hey all you BN'ers !

    Hope you all are doing well and smelling great


    I got low on 8 of my Creeds and my Acqua Di Parma frags and got a good offer online and had to restock.


    So bought this yesterday


    120 ml Aventus EDP


    120 ml Green Irish Tweed EDP


    120 ml Original Santal EDP


    120 ml Silver Mountain Water EDP


    120 ml Himalaya EDP


    120 ml Millesime Imperial EDP


    120 ml Tabarome Millesime EDP


    75 ml Royal Oud (only bottle size you can get this in) EDP


    180 ml Acqua Di Parma Colonia EDC


    180 ml Acqua Di Parma Essenza EDC


    180 ml Acqua Di Parma Intensa EDC


    100 ml Acqua Di Parma Assoluta EDC


    Reason I got the Assoluta in 100 ml is that it lasts 8+ hours on my skin with 4-6 sprays, while I need to apply 8-10 sprays of the other 3 to get the same longevity (if you spray 3 sprays directly on top of each other, the first two sprays gets sealed in, and this prolongs longevity highly)


    Also bought these 7 designers, while I had the spending trousers on anyway


    Armani Acqua Di Gio Essenza 180 ml EDP
    Prada Luna Rossa 150 ml EDT
    Chopard Noble Cedar 80 ml EDT
    Chopard Noble Vetiver 80 ml EDT
    Loris Azzaro Visit 100 ml EDT
    Carolina Herrera For Men 100 ml EDT
    Carolina Herrera For Men 100 ml After Shave Balm
    Calvin Klein CK One Shock Man 100 ml EDT

    Also received a little sample haul from Lucky Scent - just testing Tauer Incense Rose on my right arm and Tauer Orange Star on my left arm........

    So far I will rate Orange Star 7/10 - nice dry orange peel, but there is a little sickening note in this, that turns me off from it......insense rose is quite nice. I will rate that 8/10, I get an incense medicinal light rose vibe from it.
    I actually could consider buying Tauers Incense Rose in May, it grows on me after only 2 hours on my skin.

    Next up in May will be a refill of my now almost empty bottles of Bond No.9 Chez Bond, Frederic Malle Garamium PM & Frapin L'Humaniste. Also will look into getting some Bois 1920 Sushi Imperial.....

    What have you gals & guys been up to this month ?

    CHSeifert, that's one heck of a haul. But don't you think owning both GIT and Chez Bond is a little redundant? Personally, I would have just gotten Chez Bond. But nonetheless, great haul!

    This month, I got 10 1.5 ml vials of By Killian's Rose Oud, and a few Olfactive Studios samples from luckyscent.

    I kind of agree with you, but I find Chez Bond slightly more light and feminine and GIT a bit more dark and heavy, but they are close and Chez Bond is an an obvious copy of GIT, but IMHO a very well made copy - something Bond No.9 excels at in many people's opinions

    I have bought from cheapsmells 6 times before and find them to be a perfectly legit company.

    If they sell me a second hand bottle of anything, I'm done dealing with them.
    I would say they have guts if they try to put second hand Creeds in my parcel, when I order 7 120 ml Creed bottles from them the same day.....but you never know.....

    I have bought maybe 50+ full bottles from Cheapsmells since 2011, and all have been legit.
    I'll have to see if they dare sell me second hand shiit - then I inform the police and my credit card company and claim my rights and probably a bit more for wasting my time.....

    I read this thread before I ordered my 7 Creed at cheapsmells - and if they have had Royal Oud I would have bought it there too, without blinking an eye:

    Chez Bond is indeed a little lighter than GIT, which is why I like it. When I tried it, it's airiness was really nice. It just struck me as more pleasant. I have never tried GIT, and "liked" it, but Chez Bond made a positive impression.

    Just recently tried it and although didn't give it a full day's wear yet, first impression is positive. Hard to decide as I like them both equally.
