    Default What new fragrances are a must have on your Christmas list?

    I'd love to hear what y'all are looking forward to adding to your collection this holiday. I just ordered Bleu de Chanel, hoping its a hit.

    There hasn't been much that's grabbed me as of late, but Masque's Montecristo was especially impressive—one that I'll be seriously considering in the near future. Slumberhouse's Zahd is another, but that one has already been pre-ordered. I'm also interested in the new CdG Monocle scent, Sugi.

    Like deadidol, I await Zahd with great anticipation. Other than that the only bottle I am looking to buy is Sahara Noir. Of course I will be looking, perhaps for quite a while, for a killer deal on Fate.

    The remaining mens and unisex Dorin scents lacking in my collection is what I can think of now.

    Frankly, I did not make up my mind yet.

    I found this manufacturer specialized in essences, he has Old Spice vintage formula, Tabac ditto and L'Origan (pardon me???) listed so I might get the Tabac for curiosity's sake. And dirt cheap, really.

    I also have a growing fancy for female green scents, so that can be another possibility. I am exploring options with the help of B Noters.

    Plus the difficult to get niche scents: Hednic suggested two by Detaille, and I have Mouchoir listed, so if a friend heads to BA from Madrid, I might ask him to bring me one of these.

    Sounds like something I would like, but I rarely blind buy and even if I did I don't find anyone that sells this brand.
    So...it is not something I have considered. :-\

    I'm thinking pure malt and Bentley intense, but I'm not sure what retailers sell Bentley I haven't seen it in any stores. Anyone know what retailers carry it? (Not online retailers)

    Hoping to have xerjoff nio but also in saying that, for the same price I could grab frapin l'humaniste and fm bigarade concentree.
    My guess it'll be the latter, as they say "two is better than one"

    Bottega Venetta Pour Homme is pretty awesome out of the new releases, although I would rather wait for an "intense" formulation.

    Next on my list, although not a "recent release" is Chambre Noire by Olfactive Studio for this winter & a decant of Epic Man by Amourage, prior to FB purchase.

    Checking it twice...maybe Guerlain Eau De Cologne Imperial?
    So maybe this...
    Dior Homme Intense No2 + Guerlain Eau De Cologne Imperial and a partridge in a pear tree?

    Yes, no, other?
