    I've been on a huge* Aventus binge of late. Recently picked up 50mL decant of 19P11 and 30mL decant of 18B01 for those who care.
    In my opinion, it's not the best, not the most interesting, not the best performance or best scent profile but it's mass appealing and easy to wear. Quite happy to stock up, smash it on as a scent for work and sell off some of the stuff I was hanging on to for 'collections' sake.

    *Edit: Perhaps not that huge, will be picking up a 50mL decant of 18K01 shortly, and will hold fire thereafter until I've used something to completion.

    All I seem to do is make blind purchases but I bought Black Phantom by Kilian and I'm not disappointed in my purchase at all. I think I just need to keep blind buying because I have yet to buy anything I dislike.

    That's a lot of money to buy blindly. Glad it is working out for you so far. Enjoy!

    Thank you and I agree, I've taken quite a lot of gambles. My first blind purchase was Reflection Man, then Herod, then Santal Royal, then Aventus, and now finally Black Phantom. I'll probably stop while I'm up but I do have my eye on Black Gold by Mancera so I might have to get that before I actually stop making blind purchases haha!

    Thanks! The only splash I've had is of the Eau de Sport flanker. Much prefer sprays. This'll be the earliest Kouros I've ever tried/owned!

    Davidoff Cool Water 6.7oz - $11 95% full from Fragrancenet on eBay too good to pass up tried it a few years ago definitely giving it another go for the deep discounted price.

    There is a lot of mixed answers floating around right now discontinuation, reformulation, select region sales not sure what the exact reason behind it’s disappearance. I reached out to Chanel and received the same response others have received, they are not able to provide any information at this time when it will be available again. Hoping for the best it’s such a great fragrance to be discontinued, I’m giving Guerlain Heritage EDT some time to see if it becomes a good replacement for me.

    Sometimes you don't know what you've got until it's gone. I swapped a bottle of this but missed it. Thankfully, another bottle was available at my local Marshalls.

    Straight to heaven has been on my buy list for a while, but somehow I end up buying other stuff... Perhaps it was my bad experience with apple brandy which I really liked when I sampled, but hated it after having bought it too soon...
