    Default NEW Caswell-Massey Yellowstone line of "fragrance tonic"

    If anyone gets a nose on any of these please post your thoughts about it here.
    They are described in the New Releases thread above and seem to have some unusual notes.
    How do you know what a French whorehouse smells like?

    I'm supposed to have some samples coming and if/when I get them, I'll post my thoughts about them. They sound very much like they are attempting a Juniper Ridge-like vibe now that Juniper Ridge is seemingly (and unfortunately) backing away from having a serious fragrance line. Caswell-Massey appears very much in flux these days but they are obviously trying to push the company in a good direction and a few of their recent perfume releases (VIC, ROS, LX-48) are really good.

    Okay, I just got my samples today in very nice little bottles with rollers for application, which was a very nice classy touch. I was totally wrong about them perhaps having something in common with Juniper Ridge. They have absolutely nothing in common with them. They also have nothing in common with the other really good new Caswell-Massey perfumes I mentioned. In fairness, these are much less expensive than those so I don't want to be ridiculous in my expectations and I am enjoying one of the five - Old Faithful, which has a vaguely Terre d'Hermes vibe. I might consider a full bottle of that one. It's certainly very pleasant. Lake isn't bad, but nothing I would ever wear. It's an aquatic with a slight musky quality. Canyon is a harsher relative of New West. Tower Fall is just strange. I can't decide whether I find it interesting or unpleasant. I would be interested in hearing other people's opinions on this one. I can't smell Mamouth much at all.

    Edit: Old Faithful, Lake, and Canyon survived a shower, so longevity is excellent on those three. Old Faithful remains the one I think is a keeper.

    Interesting. Kinda glad to hear they're not in the Juniper Ridge style, to be perfectly honest. That style is fascinating but ultimately not all that wearable.

    I don't see samples for sale on their website.

    They are calling them Fragrance Tonics, so I sort of expected them to wear like Eaux de Colognes...whereas it sounds like they wear like EdT's.

    They are EdTs despite the misleading name which is meant to appeal to people who don't wear perfume. I wrote asking if they planned to offer a sample set of the line and they responded by making me a set and sending it.
