    Default Been gone since April....What did I miss???

    Hello everyone. I had a busy spring, summer, and fall. Hence the disappearance.

    Sooooo.....whats new in the world of perfumery? Any unbelievable new scents? Discontinuations? Reformulations? Revivals? What terrible stuff has the IFRA been up to? Everyone still falling over Aventus or is there a new one? Let me know.....

    What is this Aventus you speak of? Seriously, about 100 pages of threads, some inane, some good reads, the more things change...

    edit: this zoologist offering and Malle sold to Lauder are both deserved of some attention imo.

    One of the popular things out now is Dior Homme Parfum (not the intense version).

    Too many to mention. Some to note: Bleu De Chanel EDP, Pure Wood by Mugler, a boatload of Montales and Manceras etc.
    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 my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I saw the Zoologist offerings and they interest me a little bit. Not a huge fan of the Muglers, like em but no love. Montale already had a boatload out, now they have more?

    I saw that Tea for Two is being brought back, that would extremely excite me if I hadn't already bought an overpriced bottle of it.

    It is true that fish stink. It is also true that the river is
    beautiful. But the river would be beautiful despite the fish. What
    is noxious remains so.

    That is not to say that sh*t is not useful when buried in the wheat
    field. Bread made from the field tastes sweet, wine from the arbor
    sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
    glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks
    and keep his sandals clean.

    Plenty has come out. In addition to what's been mentioned:

    Designer:
    -Paco Rabanne's Invictus hit the US. This one seems to be either love or hate.
    -Issey Miyake launched Nuit d'Issey, an oriental.
    -Boss Bottled Night is now widely distributed in the US - previously, it was exclusive to Sephora.

    Niche:
    -By Kilian came out with three new scents. Trying them over the next few days.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)
    -"Mama", My Chemical Romance

    Niche & Hard-To-Find Sale (US Only): Frederic Malle, vintage Infusion de Vetiver, By Kilian
    Currently wearing: Aventus by Creed

    The Invictus and Valentino don't look up my alley. I looked up the Kilians a day ago and recall one of them sounded interesting. Ive secretly loved Boss Bottled Night for about a year and a half now, even though I don't own a bottle yet. Something about it really sings to me but all the reviews have kept me from buying it for fear of smelling generic. I know that's pathetic on my part. Maybe this year will be the year I buy it.

    I saw Amouage has come out with Journey, sounds like it could be a winner. That and AdP Colonia Leather. As well as a current battle with myself over TF Italian Cypress and Halston Z14.

    Tralala just went on my 'to test list.' It looks like it has some potential. If its been an uninteresting past few months, I may spend this winter catching up. Still have a few classics that I want to get in the vintage form before that stock dries up.

    Whats the latest word on Tom Ford London making it to the U.S.?
