    Bottom:
    Fahrenheit, Epic Man, Egoiste Cologne Concentree, Noir de Noir, Oud Wood, Tuscan leather, Pure Malt, Bois d'Ascese, Bois des Illes, Luminere Noire, Cuir 28 (decant).

    I coculdn't resist to a 50% off another bottle of Ferrari Essence Oud, which I like to wear after a shower and /or go to bed. But, apart from Cuir de Russie, Bois des Iles and Sycomore, I want to spend the next 365 days without buying anything else. Happy New Year 2014 to everyone.

    As for the Tsar, I was just wondering which bottle you bought as there seems to be a few different bottles out there right now, with some difference in the fragrance.

    ETA: This thread has info on the different versions of Tsar:

    Saved up a few gift cards from the last year and had quite a bit to spend. I couldn't think of anything better to buy, at least, for what was in stock.

    Tauer-- Incense Rose.
    Olfactive Studio-- Chambre Noire
    Tom Daxon-- VSOP... This was the only blind buy...smells good so far!

    I am not sure but Egoiste CC can only be vintage since it was discontinued around 1993 and never launched again.

    An old friend...Perry Ellis for Men (old school). Its been 20+ years since I wore this one. It was discounted and could not resist. Sadly it has changed from its original formulation. Fond memories. Maybe one day I'll look for a vintage bottle.
