    Default Blind Bought Dilemma

    Recently i just blind bought 3 fragrances through a friend of mine in the States.

    1. Tom Ford Sahara Noir
    2. Hylnds Spirit of Glen
    3. By Kilian Apple Brandy

    While all the fragrances had already arrived at my friend house, she could only help me bring 1 back home (her mom will be coming back in a few days) as her luggage allowance is already full. The other 2 fragrances will be brought back to me either at the end of January through her friend (if possible) or latest by the end of February when she will go back to Indonesia.

    My question would be, if you guys were me, which would you pick. Because honestly, I had a hard time picking just one as I really wanted to smell them all pronto.

    Sahara Noir is the only one ive smelled, but it's phenomenal. That would be my choice.

    Sahara Noir... but I haven't tried the By Kilian, and I'm quite curious about it.

    I do not own this. A friend/coworker had it, and he let me try.

    Admittedly it's the only one I really know, but I'd go with Sahara Noir. It's beautiful.

    When my friend suggested that she will pick one random fragrance to bring back, my immediate response to her was to bring back the Apple Brandy. Not because I was more keen to smell The AB over the others, it because i paid an overnight shipping, so that it could reach her just in time before her mom went back home. I guess i might as well take advantage of what i already paid.

    Still, I want to smell them all lol. Trying to cross my fingers and hope that she has extra baggage allowance and can bring all 3 back.

    Haven't smelled any of them. But, I would go with the Kilian Apple Brandy.

    So many split choices ( except for the Hylnds lol).....Either way, i think i'm gonna be in olfactory heaven with these 3 new fragrances. Now the only thing i have to do is just be patients until they reach me huhuhu.

    I finally received one of my perfume and apparently even though i opted for the apple brandy, the one that i received was the Hyldns.




    I guess the saying "Save the Best for Last" really applies here lol ( not saying this is bad but according to the votes here, this is the least favourite of all lol )

    In any case I actually like this fragrance. Warm and cozy smell for a cold rainy weather here. My only complain is that it is more like a skin scent and it has very low projections.


    Ps: My Friend just told me that her friend is coming back tomorrow from the states and she will try ( if possible ) to bring back my perfume...now I'm really hoping that she can bring back both SN and AB hehehe =X
