    Didn't like this one too much the first few times I sampled it, but I kept re-sampling it and realized I liked it quite a bit when sampling yesterday. Ordered a bottle this evening for my first purchase of 2014.

    I got the 50 ml from Luckyscent; I wasn't aware that this particular fragrance was available in a 100 ml bottle. If I start using up this bottle more quickly than expected then I'll definitely be on the lookout for a 100 ml backup!

    I bought some vintage Cool Water today. One of my employees wears it well, plus some guy in Subway made it smell great a few months ago. I just had the itch to get it again. BNIB 1.36 OZ EDT spray for about $17 shipped off ebay.

    The company just recently decided to make about 17 in their line available in the 100m size. This one was luckily one of those chosen.

    Got these two on a recent business trip.

    What I've learned about Al-Rehab from experience is that the batch matters. The other Aseel that I have tried about a year ago, it was unwearable. This one I bought on spot, it is hysterically good.

    On Buysblind's recommendation, I purchased Villoresi Uomo since Lafco had it in stock (I think there is currently one left.)

    While I was shopping, I also bought Villoresi Sandalo. Look forward to a post comparing a bunch of different sandalwoods currently available.

    Both blind buys but I'm fairly confident that I will like both.

    (Also called to get samples of Piper Nigrum, Patchouli, Vetiver, and Alamut. Heard good things about these.)

    Not sure. It's close to the Target and Ross, and the new Guitar Center. They had one bottle and it was in the ladies section. It's the first time I've seen a Creed in these stores. The great part is that it's one of the few main line Creeds I did not already own.
