    Nope...this is a pure blind buy. To be honest, I am a little scared! According to the Demeter website, "Zombie for Him: Death and Decay on the forest floor. Zombie for Him is a combination of dead and dying vegetation, mushrooms, mildew, moss and earth."

    I bought it as a birthday gift for a friend and colleague who loves the zombie and vampire genre. He'll get a kick out of it, regardless of what it smells like. I also discovered that they are selling for half the price on Overstock.com, so I'm not too worried if he doesn't like it. His birthday isn't until the end of May, so it will be a while before I can give my impressions.

    The Order Arrived from Aloes of Ish, can't quite make out all of the labels, although one of the two free oils is frankincense.

    The two I paid for, $30 total, Black Oud and the Other is listed as TamOud Attar Blend.

    I found a big 8oz bottle of Grey Flannel today at Marshall's.

    Curiosity got the best of me and I bought it. The opening is a little frightening, but drydown is pleasant. My girlfriend seems to like it more than I do.

    Just based on a couple of dabs on my wrist from the sample vial, it's a very nice fougere with green notes of moss and maybe pine. There's an earthy quality in there but overall it's fresh and green and clean, maybe even a little soapy at times. It's not too dissimilar from Paco Rabanne PH, but Patrick is a bit drier, less dense, less in-your-face. It's a pretty classy scent IMO. Can't comment on the longevity as I just dabbed it on an hour ago.

    I don't know what it smells like, but If it's cheap and makes me laugh, sometimes I splurge.

    Narciso Rodriguez Musc edp 1.7oz
    1 Million Absolutely Gold pure parfum 3.3oz
    Joop! Wild edt 4.2oz
    Fahrenheit Absolute edt 3.4oz

    and with that, I believe I'm done for the year.
    Maybe a few samples here and there but no more FBs.

    Hasn't arrived yet from France. Bought it blindly also as this was the only one of the 9 the house offers that I was missing. I'll remember to chime in when I receive it.
