    This was over the weekend but since BN down and I'm posting today, I'll put August

    Spicebomb Fresh.

    Love it. Much better than the original. Made it perfect for all seasons

    Creed Iris Tubereuse from the Aqua Original line. My wife and 20 year old son agreed that I needed to buy it for my work reward. They also both agree that it smells awesome on me. A local shop had it. I was uninspired by what Sephora had on Saturday, and we saw this, tested it, and were very impressed. Lots of beautiful florals coming out of this one, and great longevity as well. Femme? My wife and son don't think so. YMMV.

    Today I bought Hťritage EdT by Guerlain. For 59.99€ I couldn't resist.
    The synthetic perfume materials are supposed to enhance and support the use of natural raw materials, not to replace them, nor in any way to beat them off the market. The synthetic chemicals present a certain challenge to nature, and the perfumer can assist nature in her fight by utilizing the synthetic materials to the advantage of the natural raw materials. (S.

    I haven't tried this one. Creed's Tuberose Indiana, though, was my first floral, and, though "feminine", smelled so good to me that I felt I had, before I ever learned the truth here at Basenotes, singlehandedly invented the unisex attitude to frags. How does this use of tuberose by Creed compare to TI?

    As for myself, I had to stay humble and resourceful, and bought 4 sample vials from the UK, for £8.48rochas lui.jpg. Now to decide if I pull the trigger for the full bottle!

    Bombay Sapphire - Infusion


    So apparently it's a booze/perfume hybrid. Anyway, I love gin and it sounds intriguing. While discussing swap/sale options with a fellow Basenoter, turns out he had it, so I scooped it up. It's been on my radar for a while and the August budget just kicked in, so why not?

    In the photo, Infusion is the little square bottle with the black cap. Only available as part of a set sold duty-free, originally. 30ml EdT spray. Finally nabbed this quasi-rarity!

    Nobile 1942 Rudis.

    Bought from Amazon at a seriously discounted price. So if you are thinking of getting this one, now is a good time!
    Not loved here if the reviews are anything to go by but, I find it Fascinating, especially the stunning single malt whiskey opening and, it has reasonable long lasting staying power on my skin (8-9 hours).
    A more positive review can be found in the link below.
