    I feel lucky indeed, thank you Alex! I'm totally into fragrance bottles and packaging and I've been mostly playing with the bottle it's so pleasant to the touch and the graphics are dreamy. But about the juice. I only sprayed once on my forearm this morning but will wear it out tonight. What I can tell so far is that it has the musk a la RV smooth and sexy but not the aggressive spices. The problem for me in RV and L de Lolita are the strong slices combined with the sweetness that somehow end up nauseating for me. But not here. I'll report more with more testing. I'm so happy I have this in my wardrobe.

    One other Californian got in under the wire. Such a bizarre policy that I've never heard of except for perhaps certain firearms and components, invasive species and 190 proof Everclear.
    Please check out the bottles and samples in my swap list.

    LOL yes. By the way, the myrrh is quite evident here to me.
    I can smell the one spray through my shirt sleeve (long, buttoned). It's snuffed my SOTD Aramis 900.

    I have trouble with CLOVE notes. I dislike cloves.

    I would love my exclusive, beautiful and rare bottle of Domenico Caraceni 1913 if it did not have a prominent clove note. The clove spoils everything for me.

    That is why I prefer Meharees to MR.

    Wow.

    Not tested properly just my wrist. That comes tomorrow.

    MR is not bottle worthy anymore.

    The opening Is different to a point I was wonderig will this last through out.

    Got a orange or lemon note somewhere

    20mins in wow...

    Side by side test in a few mins.

    Damn. Surprised. May change when I properly test it tomorrow.

    This thread is the reason I like basenotes.

    Just got Sandalo, Meharees, and Dolcelisir... The first sniff of them is quite smooth and not synthetic at all. Dolcelisir is very yummy and agree that it has Ambre Narguile's vibe. For now I still prefer MR to Meharees as I think the clove note is unique but that might change... Sandalo is good too but cannot think if it's similar to any, not ..Terre d'Hermes to my nose. Thus far I am surprised and impressed with the quality of these three. Another great blind buy. Thanks guys.

    I've been lurking since first seeing this thread as I'm a hardcore Musc Ravageur fan, gone through a 50ml entirely and now about 1/3rd through my 100ml. It's a scent I'm very familiar with and I was curious about this Meharees. My bottle was delivered this morning and I did a full wearing right when it showed up and another a few minutes ago and I echo what others are saying, this is no joke. A true Musc Ravageur killer. The first couple of minutes reveal the biggest differences but those differences are as minimal as it gets. Ravageur is a little bit stronger, but Meharees is plenty strong too and lacking the medicinal old man note at the start of Ravageur. Overall it's more versatile and the dry down smells better than Ravageur to me, plus its only $40 for 50ml on Amazon. And I think the square bottle is far more attractive on my perfume shelf than the Malle bottle. Needless to say I'm very eager to experience the rest of this line, and I want to thank everyone in this thread as this perfume probably wouldve never come to my attention without it. I'm heading out this weekend and plan on wearing two sprays of Meharees with a spray of Pure Malt on top of it, will report how it goes.

    Just received Meharees two days ago. Meharees has a light vanilla vibe with a slight medicinal note in the initial spray (not bad at all). I do get the myrh and light spices with this one. Semi gourmand frag with a nice projection and the longevity is good also on my skin (about 8 hours). I never tried Musc Ravageur before, so I can't compare the two. I do know I like this one and will getting a few more wears before the weather gets hot ( I don't advise wearing this in the summer). Give this one an 8 out of 10.

    Mix 1 part meharees with 2 parts Pure Havane. You still get the opening and tobacco of Pure Havane, but it's more along the lines of Tobacco Vanille.

    Glad to see you cats agreeing with what I was saying in the other thread where people were saying the two don't smell similar, which is nonsense. Anyhow, I'm happy to have Meharees in my arsenal and although I do acknowledge and appreciate what makes MR different, due to the enormous price disparity it's hard to imagine I'll be re-upping the MR when it runs dry.

    I'm really looking forward to getting my nose on this one! Many people want to judge it versus Musc Ravageur, but I'm not planning on doing any sort of comparison. I've never smelled MR. I'm just interested in Meharees because I've read such good things. I don't own anything like it. I don't even think I've ever smelled anything like it.

    This is the perfect mindset to have too. It's a great fragrance regardless if you've smelled Musc Ravageur or not. I have been wearing it daily since I received the bottle and find it to be very well balanced and high quality/niche smelling, despite the low price point. I wore it out last night with a spray of Pure Malt on top and it smelled absolutely wonderful!! My girlfriend (who usually finds my cologne habit a bit obsessive) was quite vocal about letting me know how great I smelled all night long, even in the cab ride home. I suggest trying this combo if you have them. I just wish Meharees came in 100ml size, or even 250ml.

    This is the first time in a long time I've felt compelled to buy some backup bottles. I spent this morning doing some research on the company and purchased 6 more of their fragrances, including this Patchouli they make

    Kende, did you get Chinchona? I cannot find it on cybercucina's website.

    Default Re: Meharees L`Erbolario

    I purchased:

    Patchouly (Patchouli)
    Corteccia (Bark)
    Ambraliquida (Styrax)
    Myrrhae (Myrrh)
    Mandorla (Almond)
    Papavero Soave (Sweet Poppy)

    and also 3 backups of Meharees, all were purchased from cybercucina via Amazon.com and got all 9 bottles for about the same price as an Amouage 100ml, not bad.

    I'm most excited for the Corteccia (Bark). Here is the description:

    Corteccia Acqua di Profumo (Eau de Parfum) by L'Erbolario contains the essence of Willow, Cluster Pine and Oak, generous and productive trees on which the tough, strong and resistant bark conceals secret and highly precious active substances, as well as an extremely refreshing aromatic, woodland fragrance.

    Another good one by L' Erbolario. Gourmand with a sweet vanilla vibe. Spices are done right. Definitely unisex (listed as feminine) with good projection and longvevity. SOTD

    I had a sample of Meharees body wash; I went through it immediately. Very nice stuff. I also have the bar soap form of Ambraliquida, Myrrhae, Patchouly and Muschio, all of which are really nice. The Ambraliquida is sweet and very pleasing, as is Myrrhae and Patchouly. Muschio is light and mixes well with musk frags. I'm waiting on my bottle of Dolcelisir to arrive. I ordered it blind, but I'm sure I'll love it.

    Who do you ask, NenMaster? The website seems to have one contact email address that doesn't work.

    I sprayed Periplo in a store in italy and I remember being unimpressed and not exploring further. If I remember correctly, it is a fresh citrusy semiaquatic, not especially offensive for the genre, but not particularly remarkable either.

    The Patchouly is great. I bought a bottle and I'm very happy with it. Pretty straight forward patchouli, I really enjoy it.
