    What do you think of 40 Love? I personally enjoy it and I could see this as bottle worthy.
    I'm with you! Just waiting for the release to drop so I can grab a bottle! I can honestly say that nothing I own or have smelled reminds me or 40 Love and that is a plus in my book... While I love scents that evoke memories something "new" and uncharted excites me!

    Thanks Hednic! My first time sampling at retail, and I went a little overboard. I didn't know they would be grouped together but there was one sales rep at Saks for Amouage, Mancera and Montale. She was very friendly and generous with samples.

    I didn’t know you bought the ELDO. Glad you liked it!
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,

    Yeah! It caught me off guard how good it was because I'm rarely into florals.

    I know, but I felt obligated to let you know my friend, and there's always the option to returned or maybe the seller is willing to give you a credit instead of taking it back.

    Dior - Leather Oud - vintage 2011 250ml BNIB.

    I had to. Turns out my Leather Oud, which I adore, is the latter formulation (or at least 2nd formulation. Formula code is different.). Then I see the thread about Leather Oud potentially being discontinued or at least becoming market limited. Had to pull the trigger.

    Grats. Got me intrigued about the New West. I'm not real familiar with the whole Aramis line.

    One time I sprayed a tester of regular Aramis and it smelled strongly of something, I can't quite remember. Then another time I sprayed another one and it seemed to be VERY different than the first one I smelled. So to this day, I'm not quire sure how Aramis is supposed to smell!

    This is a great buy! One of my top 5 scents, and it doesn't get better than the original formulation.
