    Done! After reading this and the other replies, not waiting for any old sample to arrive.

    Don't hold your breath. Remember that the initial forecast was that it might be done by late December or early January.

    As a side note, I am really liking the new spray nozzles which allow for a half-spray. A huge upgrade over the old spray nozzles which were a little flimsy.

    I did order the new Vikt - didn't want to lost out, even though I own the older Vikt also, which I really like by the way...Awaiting to do a side by side once it arrives...

    Hoping that since it sold out in less than 24 hours that late December is a possibility. "Zahd is my scent of the day" would be a nice post on Christmas day.

    I agree completely with your assessment of this new version. The notes I didn't really like are gone now. Now I love it!

    Trust me, it's not going to be the case. It'll be well into January at this point.

    How long did those that purchased Slumberhouse Vikt get out of the fragrance? I'm quite curious. I only got about 6 hours myself from Vikt and that caught me by surprise. I did one spritz to the wrists which is more than ample for most other Slumberhouse fragrances to last well after a shower.

    Nope. Should be January still. There should be an update soon once things get more finalized, but I can guarantee it won't be arriving this year.

    An extremely long time on me, and my skin drinks fragrance. When I was doing the initial reports on this to give people a sense of the difference, I wore it both on skin and on a test strip. Skin is about 16 hours for me, and the test strip was (I kid you not) 5 days. With that said, I did hear from someone else that it didn't provide the longevity of other SH scents -- which, given the materials (and the crazy test strip timing) struck me as very strange.

    Thanks deadidol, I know my nose wasn't broken today...but I'm pretty sure I figured out what my "issue" is here. It happens to be near the single digits here, nearing -30 wind chill and dry as all hell here in Chicago. My skin earlier I had noticed was unnaturally scratchy and dry itself...external factors had to play a big part. My skin never has issues with fragrances lasting forever, most especially those from Slumberhouse. I'll have to test again when the thermostat moves up a few notches and I get moisturized. The initial blast of Vikt smells a lot like the old stuff, but I was really digging the Oud/Sandalwood dry down, didn't get much incense but we'll see if it peeks in after wearing this when it's a reasonable temperature.

    Same here by the way. I got a sample and tried it yesterday, and it got surprisingly spotty longevity, around 6-8 hours... was indoors all day so temperature was OK... don't know why, maybe it was olfactory fatigue? It was an atypical slumberhouse experience!

    This kind of thing happens to me from time to time with his scents. Like, the first version of Zahd I tried lasted me like 5-6 hours, but the new one lasted me all day as is typical of his stuff. Then, the samples of Norne I had lasted me maybe 6-8 hours, but the one time I tried my bottle I got a bit better longevity, somewhere in the 9-10 hour range (I'll have to try wearing it again soon and actually time it better).

    Then, of course, there is stuff like my current bottle of Sova that lasts essentially until I make an effort to get it off....it even survived a shower once recently.

    Well good to know that I'm not just imagining the shortened longevity. I wasn't expecting it considering I NEVER have longevity issues, even with stuff that most people complain dissipates fast.

    Just received my Slumberhouse order, including samples of Zahd and Mare. Zahd started out candy sweet, but has dried down (3-4 hours worn now) into a fragrance that rival favorites like Caron's Bellodgia and Bal à Versailles.* Mare, one I hadn't heard of and don't see for sale (anywhere!), started out as a blast of wintergreen or menthol but has settled into a woody/green gem. I must say I've yet to sample a Slumberhouse I don't like. Each one is a complex and sophisticated innovation that absolutely reeks (projection, longevity, sillage), which is what I want a perfume to do. Even Sova, which is a bit more gourmand than I want to wear, is a joy to smell.

    *Must double-check this comparison. May have lost track of what I sprayed where.

    Wearing Jeke today, first time spraying out of the 30ml bottle having used up my 2ml sample. Wow, even better than the sample. The booziness really came out and is needless to say quite intoxicating. By far my favorite tobacco fragrance! Nothing comes close to this. When I first read about Slumberhouse on here, I kept hearing how his fragrances are hard to wear, but I don't find that to be the case. Assuming I don't put too much on, I would wear Jeke anywhere almost anytime (maybe not in 100 degree weather). If I had to pick a signature scent, Jeke is one of my top choices

    Jeke is unlike anything else. Enjoy it my friend! I too just recently got a full bottle, and it is even better than the 2mL samples, as it really spreads out the one spray. Love this stuff!

    Mare is one Slumberhouse that I am yet to get fond off - i do have a FB, but it's probably the most difficult opening I'v encountered so far, dry down's nice, but the initial green blast just puts me off from trying this again so far...

    to each their own; but i'm also against these type of layering, particularly with such complex & well made parfums like Zahd & Jeke.

    I hear ya, but couldn't resist the impulse. With Zahd I kept getting this "almost divine" feeling. It was "almost" as good as vintage Bellodgia and Bal a Versailles. I put it over Jeke and wow! It surpasses both. I can hardly keep my nose off my hand.
