    Default Amazing shopping experience

    I ordered my 2nd niche bottle, huge bottle of Chanel Coromandel from Place Vendome at Belgium (it was recommended to me on fragrantica boards). I asked them if they could send me one sample of Amouge .

    After 3 days I received shippment... I opened it... and I was shocked!

    They've sent me 6 amouage samples... and rest, well you can see rest on picture (amouages are in small atomizers next to Coromandel box).




    This is by far my best shopping experience ever. Do you have similiar shopping experience that made you breathless? They've just restored my lost faith in humanity and good

    What the hell? That's amazing! I guess we know where you'll be doing your fragrance shopping from now on. What size is that bottle of La Petite Robe Noire?

    Yeah. Its absolutely awesome. Little Guerlain is 5ml. I was almost bored with fragrances but now I have things to test for next few months!

    So far I tested just Reflection Man, which reminds me combo of Mont Blanc Individuel/Joop Homme/APOM pour homme. I really hate Individuel so I dont think I will ever like it.

    On 2nd wrist I have Jubiliaton XXV and this is awesome from start. I can see why it is so hyped here. I will try to describe it later.

    Thank you everyone .

    Now back to fragrances... Reflection Man... after few hours, that annoying synthetic screetchy note disapeared. All that remained is nice sweet creamy and almost powdery smell. Its actually nice, but I dont think that its 250 euro nice.

    Jubilation XXV - starts with blast of berries + woods (oud or maybe its incense?). On drydown some vetiver joins the party, berries goes away and everything reminds me just slightly more complex and masculine version of Timbuktu. You can easy see that its made by same person.

    I had similar good fortune at Nordstrom last night but you, my friend, surpassed me. Enjoy!

    Congratulations! One somewhat similar experience for me was getting a good rate on Worth Je Reviens due to holiday sales (about 7-8 EUR a 100 ml bottle).
