    It's OK, Hinoki is in no way an incense scent, so it looks like a perfectly balanced purchase to me. All great scents.

    That being said, I'm curious about Taiga. But I just looked and realized that it only comes in a 5ml splash bottle. I hate splash bottles ... that may be a deal-breaker for me.
    Oud Taiga is awesome. Very pleased with it has a certain musky sweetness which is very addictive.

    I use a standard vial dipstick to apply from the splash bottle. I've got empty atomisers but I think it may be better not to spray it.

    Excellent purchase IMO!
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    Going with inexpensive bottles this month. Got Jovan Intense Oud & Secret Amber for $8.95 a bottle with free shipping. We'll see how these go.

    Well, I read some reviews and bought Jovan's Silky Rose too. It is unisex and I'll take a chance on it at under $10. Supposedly these were built to stand alone or to layer them.

    A few recent impulse buys:

    Anglia Perfumery: Duncan (supposedly the descendant of Crown Perfumery Buckingham)
    Guerlain: Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca
    Diptyque: Eau Moheli
    Nina Ricci: Phileas
    Gorilla: The Bug & Dirty
    Sisley: Eau d'Ikar
    Rituals: No 14 Cypress & Tangerine
    O'Driu: Linfedele Haiku

    From a standing start last June I have alas just cruised over the 150 mark and my fragrance cabinet is now getting extremely crowded.
    I must either get a grip on this hobby (fetish?) or get a larger cabinet...
