    Yes, Tony, do drop some more hints, lol. I think I got my husband a mini Curve for a stocking stuffer once, he liked the scent though. Hopefully, the Curve curse will be over for ya though, Tony!

    Tobacco Oud, this just came out, didn't it? Haven't sniffed it, congrats!

    Last Christmas, I got M7 Oud Absolu. My family knows that I love the smelly stuff.

    Hoping for a bottle of Millesime Imperial this Christmas. But regardless of what I get (by now, it's basically a Christmas tradition for me to get at least one bottle), I will post it in the "Today I Bought" thread for the month.

    But congrats on the Costco-size Tobacco Oud. Like me and my family, your GF must have a good nose!

    Just recvd y'day night:

    Bentley for men Intense (& I dropped it, broke the sprayer & had to transfer the entire juice from the beautiful bottle into a regular joe 100ml glass spray bottle)

    Also ended up buying Bogart Furyo, vintage Eau Sauvage edt splash, vintage Balenciaga PH & vintage Vendetta PH...Was very happy to buy all those vintages & not to have lost the juice from the Bentley for men Intense...

    Merry XMas to one & all...

    Hey, it may not be an exciting gift, but Curve is one that'll always be in my collection. I'm not kidding. Yes, I own scents by Creed, Amouage and Tauer, Tom Ford, the good Guccis (Gph I and II), vintage M7, etc etc etc, but Curve is an easy compliment getter that is fantastic on a first date. It is without a doubt one of my most complimented scents. Of course, Curve can be had for as little as $15, so it's a bit of a cheapskate gift

    No one buys me fragrances, and that's probably for the best since I'm picky about what I want to wear. I bought myself one this year though. It's a cheapie but a goodie: Cannabis Santal, by Fresh. It's really an underrated gem, and it's only $38 at Sephora. Since it's not in their men's fragrances section, I think most people overlook it.

    I received Dior Fahrenheit Summer (100 ml) from my girlfriend. I spotted it awhile back from a small fragrance shop in my city that has a bunch of old and hard to find fragrances. I love the Fahrenheit line and this one is pretty tough to find and would be a nice addition to my Fahrenheit family so asked her to get me this.

    I accidentally received Chanel platinum Egoiste from my parents. I asked if I could get Egoiste since they wanted to get me a cologne this year and they got mixed up haha Luckily they have the receipt for it and I can return it and get the money back for them and then order Egoiste online (Can't find a bottle in any store here unfortunately) So it all works out in the end!

    I have Millesime Imperial on my wishlist too but since I didn't get it for Christmas (we open on Christmas Eve), I assume I'll receive it on my birthday in four days (29th).

    I got Boss Bottled by Hugo Boss from my brother though. He really liked it and it's starting to grow on me as well.

    If you need a decant of something hit me up I'll spread the joy around, no charge.

    Congrats! I am not very experienced with TF, but that sounds like a great one. So far, I like Italian Cyprus and contemplate its purchase. I also like white suede, but not sure I would wear a bottle.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Other than select Armani boutiques, select Nieman Marcus stores and the Bergdorf Goodman NY store, the only other options seem to be online at Nieman Marcus, Bergdorf, or Ebay.
