    At this point, I'm not counting on it...I've just been using this time to wear my heavier fragrances a bit longer than normal. I long for the day I'm able to go for a run after work without wearing a jacket.

    I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this one! Luckily there is a retail store on South Beach that sells Olfactive fragrances, so I will be checking it out in person next time I am down there. Love the color, and love several others from that house....

    Got it from overseas. They just received stock of this yesterday. Should have it in about a week. I'll chime in when it arrives.

    Me too. Bought it blind a few days ago and the postman delivered it today. Smells like a win. Tempted to test drive it tomorrow, even though it's not going to be particularly warm.

    Bought the Chanels (Bleu, Egoiste and Platinum Egoiste) at the duty-free on the way back home... Glad I did. Egoiste and PE i have been wanting for awhile.... And Bleu was only available in 150ml which is way larger than i would have wanted but i grabbed it in any case, surprisingly it is proving to be truly versatile.


    Spicebomb, Bently Pour Homme and Rive Gauche Pour Homme ("RGPH") was bought from a local fragrance shop which just opened a branch.... In fact i went back to buy a back up bottle of RGPH the same day cause it was the new old stock! Also choose Bentley Pour Homme over the intense version as it seemed more complex, less gourmand/sticky and hence more suitable for tropical (summer + humid) weather. Wonder if I will succumb and buy the intense eventually... hmmm...
