    Thanks hedonist & Darjeeling.

    The scent is even more simple than Chillum, which I loved, but I found it also very tobacco-prominent. Whereas the Mysore Sandalwood is obviously just about the sandalwood, that particular wonderful vintage note that I remember when I was a kid and Mysore was everywhere. Wearing it, it's like a little piece of my olfactory childhood, here and now.

    One of these days, I'm going to buy some of that vintage aged Mysore (from 2005) that La Via del Profumo sell as an oil. Its crazy expensive: $161 for 1 gram. But I bet it smells awesome.

    On a binge today. Just came back from the Saks in my area and purchased a second set of all 10 Les Heures De Cartier Exclusive fragrances to replace the entire set taken by my daughter. The gap in my collection has now been filled!

    Since it was a large purchase I asked for many samples and the Cartier rep at Saks gave me, ready for this, 55 samples of Cartier mens fragrances (4 sealed mats of 12 samples in each) plus extras, a 1oz. atomizer of any Cartier fragrance of my choice in the store and a Prada backpack bag!

    A couple, but only very briefly. They struck me as being of exceptional quality and I plan to visit Harrods for a more leisurely sampling in the near future.

    I bought a vintage bottle of Royal Copenhagen 'Ultra Cologne' for less than $20 shipped on eBay. I'm guessing this is just a more concentrated version of the original, but can't be sure as all I could find was an image of an old advertisement. Anyone here have any experience with this version?

    Heh heh... I know what you mean. I blind bought it myself, too, and I *hated* it the first few wearings. It sort of grew on me and I don't mind it now, but I completely agree - not my favorite vetiver, no matter how many "classic" labels people slap on it. I have probably 30 other vetivers I would rather wear instead of this one.

    YSL Noble Leather: Amazing leather scent. Sheer brilliance.


    Chic Shaik 70: Got this because someone here recommended it strongly. Love the scent. Longevity and sillage are well below average on my skin, however.


    Roja Dove Fetish Parfum: Blind bought this because was getting a good deal. Really nice, but a tad bit feminine for my taste. Might sell it off.
