    Basenotes has voted, and I have decided to follow the will of the mob this month.

    Amouage Jubilation XXV 100mL and Gucci Guilty Absolute 50mL.

    The Jubilation 100mL cost exactly the same as the 50mL, so getting the larger was a complete no-brainer. The Gucci is a blind buy based on Six Cats' recent thread.

    It was a decent refreshing aromatic scent. Lime, citrus, musk, and some musk are notes that I recalled getting. There's definitely better stuff out there IMO such as Xerjoff Nio and Renaissance 1861, and also Guerlain Sous Le Vent. Also, aqua universalis forte was slightly better imo. From the line I enjoyed both Grand Soir and Oud Silk Mood although they are both darker scents, both sample worthy scents.

    These 3 are blind buys but seem to get a lot of good reviews here and on other sites.

    Thank you!

    MFK has a great deal overseas. 130 Euros and free shipping via Colissimo, which sometimes gets here faster than Fragrancenet.

    I just blind-bought the current Bowling Green, hope to receive it by Friday. How do you find the vintage compared to the modern version?
