    If you decide to start a split, let me know. ;-)
    Though I guess I'm more interested in the Rose.

    Haha I will let you know if I do! Might have to pick up the rose next if I like the oud.

    Terre d'Hermes Parfum.

    Tested this a couple weeks ago and fell in love with it. Came back to it at the mall today and the love was still there. I sprayed my neck and wrist and the very next store I walked in to, the sales associate complimented me. I told her what I had just tried over at Nordstrom, and she said, "that's the one for you." Ordered 75ml on Amazon for about $80 - a lot less than retail. I am eagerly anticipating its arrival!

    Well this was kind of a find. An unassuming "Liquidation" store with tons of absolute junk, cables, hardware, kitchen stuff, had some Azzaro and Lalique behind the cash register. Had to grab this one, I've been curious about it for a long time. Not a huge discount, but they gave me a few bucks off because it didn't have the box.

    It definitely has some personality!

    She's the sister of the SA at Nordstrom. It's a plot.

    Well, their scheme doesn't always work out like they planned.
