    What would happen if I mailed you a sample? Would some customs ogre confiscate it?

    Package arrived today ! Only problem, it looks like now Eki has leaked . There's only around 3ml left so perhaps we will have to limit ourselves to one spray of that one. I'm going to transfer what's left into 2 2.5ml atomizers. These particular atomizers have never leaked on me.

    Also, looking at the decants, it seems like a daunting task to sample them all in one week. There are 18 scents altogether, so I think 2 weeks is a more realistic timeframe.

    I will add some more impressions tonight if I have time.

    If I get a vote, I have zero problem whatsoever with people taking 2 weeks. Patience comes easy to me, especially for a good reward hahahaha. I say take your time, they'll get down the line soon enough

    Well, if you need two weeks then take it. These perfumes are worth the attention.

    p.s. Throwing out these atomizers I bought that (grrrr) leak!

    It shouldn't be confusing, ScentFan - soliciting goods &/or trading is not permitted in the discussion threads.

    I think she's referring to the discussion about relentless efforts by BN lurkers trying to buy collections of fragrance which was discussed in the other Slumberhouse thread http://www.basenotes.net/threads/370...use-Discussion.

    As we have just seen in the other thread, it has been a problem here in the past and therefore any soliciting, whether of samples or bottles, should not be encouraged.

    Right. Deadidol explained that and I appreciated it because one of them had contacted me in private. If someone's trying that in this thread, I've totally missed it.

    Get away, you naughty ones, and leave our Slumberhouse Pass in peace!

    Shipping to Italy is a pain as customs there are really strict; you have disguise packages and whatnot. With that said, some of the locations that carry the line might be able to do this. It's worth hitting up a few of them via email to see if they'd be willing to ship samples to you. Really, the best way to get Euro representation is through official distribution, but then you have the problem of the IFRA.

    It's exciting to see the pass underway, I hope the leakages are under control. I don't have much experience with decants and types of bottles to put them in, are some bottle companies more reputable than others?

    Mimielle, my experience and that of others I've discussed the issue with is that items from http://www.accessoriesforfragrances.com/ never seem to leak and they offer reasonable rates.

    I see Slumberhouse relaunched Vikt today ( http://www.basenotes.net/content/193...-relaunch-Vikt ), so I couldn't resist and placed an order for a sample pack from Indie Scents - 5 x 1ml samples, with the re-released Vikt included. I'm on the sample pass list, closer to the end of it, so this will help me with testing at least the 5 most popular scents in their line while waiting for the sample pass to arrive later this summer.

    Whatever I have left from my samples by then, I'm willing to include in the sample pass for others to enjoy, especially if I see some of the samples are getting little low on juice.

    I think this is a mistake as Vikt was re-issued last year, not today. The reissue has been out for a few months now, but either way, it's great, so enjoy

    Thanks! Had that link once and lost it. Replacing the leakers with these. When the pass comes to me from JiveHippo, I'll transfer the samples. No more leaks!

    Baque:

    Goes on very similar to Sova, and also brings to mind certain aspects of Jeke. Spices, dried fruits, and eventually tobacco. It's one of the more intense SH scents. In the mid I detect oud, or perhaps some other intense woody note. In the drydown, a little vanilla. Lasts 12hrs plus and projects very well. Very nice!


    I've gotta say, deadidol was right, this is tough! I've worn a different SH frag almost every day for the last week and half. TBH, I'm all Slumberhoused out! These aren't the type of fragrances that I like to wear every day. For the few I have remaining, I will resort to wrist sampling.

    Interesting to read through these reviews, awesome all. Thanks for sharing. I first dove into Slumberhouse about 2 years ago, so it's interesting hearing the perspectives of the newly initiated persons.

    Interesting badarun, you are the only person that I've seen on basenotes that finds Sova to be quite animalic. Something in the fragrance gave me a headache, so I could not test extensively. However, my few times with the fragrance I got a Beeswax/Castoreum/Honey/Burnt Woods. I much preferred Baque to Sova as it was more mellow an not animalic in the slightest. To be clear though, I'm speaking of the first release, not the newer stuff. I'm not sure if the new bottles are the same as the first major release in August of 2012.

    I find Sova to be extremely animalic. It's loaded with castoreum for one thing, but beeswax absolute, contra to what it might seem, smells more like sweat and dirt than honey. I'm wearing Sova today in fact.

    Sova to me - probably the most animalic I've smelt so far (including Masque Montecristo) - awaiting Leather Oud to arrive sometime this week / next, this is supposedly more challenging according to many - will wait to pass judgement.
