    I wasn't going to buy fragrances for some time except from a very short list that I made but then when I saw this I couldn't help myself. A full 250 mL bottle of the now discontinued Cologne Blanche. Such a lovely fragrance. The only problem is that it doesn't come with a sprayer. Anyone know where I can get one from? I guess I could always decant it into a smaller atomiser.

    Perhaps contact a Dior boutique and ask if they have any of the black screw on ones left hanging around that they used to supply with the first
    releases of the exclusive fragrances. Just a thought. You never know, they might have some stray ones hanging around. By the way, great purchase!

    Hahaha. I hope it does last a lifetime because it is not easy to find. I keep a 50 mL decant of this in my laptop bag and spritz it on if I am heading out to dinner with friends straight after work. Really freshens you up.

    Hedonist, who knows. The Guerlain Boutique was supposed to ship it on Thursday, even supplied a tracking number, but failed to give it to the UPS courier. It is still sitting in the store. This is the second time they have done this to me. It is very irritating, since the new manager assured me this would not happen again, and it has. Last time my order sat for 4 days before anyone realized it had not been sent.

    Waiting to hear back from her if she is willing to send expedited since it was their error.

    [QUOTE=Buysblind;2985294]Hey Gary, how do you like HTTP in comparison to Aventus?

    - - - Updated - - -

    I sampled both but preferred HTTP. Despite all of the comparisons I think that they smell nothing alike. On my skin Aventus was wonderfully smoky, but I got no pineapple. HTTP has very prominent pineapple, but it is very "green" with zero smoke. The green apple appears more prominently in the drydown. It's an odd scent, but I found myself really attracted to it. My small collection is made up primarily of either plush Chanels and Guerlains or old school powerhouses (which my wife loves) like Aramis and Kouros, so this will be a nice option when I'm in the mood. Both fragrances have terrific longevity, and I sometimes have longevity issues with fragrances.

    All this talk about batch variations must be true. I got a 50ml decant of the 2013 batch of Aventus and it's 100% pineapple, no smoke. Definitely different than the 2011/2012 samples I've had before.

    Same here, thanks to ChuckW's suggestion. Selection includes, Arrogant, Riviera, Tahitian Water and Notting Hill. Sampled them all on paper, prior to purchase and not a bad one in the bunch. $48 for the set, so $12 each seemed reasonable.

    Bought Encre Noir for around $28 and One Man Show Gold for $14. Finally tested Aspen, but am unsure if there was something wrong with the very low level in the tester bottle, because it smelled kind of off.

    I hope to find a few more bargains wandering around Dubai the next few days.
