I didn't see the Prestige Collection but they were probably on the other shelf with the non reduced ones. I also tried Domaine du Cap, Jardin Prive, Coup de Grace and one other I don't recall what was called. Wasn't so keen on the last one.

    You're lucky because in the UK you have access to the whole line. As the company doesn't ship to the US, I have to wait for when I am on the continent to get the latest ones.

    Nice. How do you like Mysore Lime? Is it a solid lime based scent?

    It's an older Warner bottle, it's plastic. 36ml or something like that. Still smelled fine from what I could tell, haha

    I also have a sample of Mysore Lime, and I think the lime is nice and juicy. It's pretty smooth too. It's a nice Summer scent.

    Great scents. About 20 years ago, those two were prominent in my regular wardrobe. Just got a new vintage Kouros in the mail yesterday. I have a first batch (81 - 86) and a second batch (87 - 93) now, so I should be good.

    Gucci Envy - another 50ml, this one is a lot more used than the other 2, but the price was right.

    How does one go from 0 Envy to buying 3 Envy in less than 24 hours. Fragrance addiction & impulse - that's how, . What a fun and dangerous hobby.

    Awesome, and congrats! Kouros is amazing and you have some great formulations as well. I downsized my collection a little bit, but I still get that itch, haha.

    Oh my God, I've been wanting to try Ruh Khus for I don't know how long - I've tried to source a high quality seller. Any leads?!?

    Boss Bottled Infinite EDP.
    This one surprised me a lot. I really didn't expect to like it as much as I did. After testing for a few hours while I shopped, I went straight back and bought a full bottle.
    Out of all the Boss Bottled flankers (of which there are many ) in my opinion, this is the least like the original (overall). While it still opens with a recognisable apple pie accord, it's not nearly as noticeable as in the original or the intense version. I expect that the difference with the opening of Infinite is the addition of mandarin citrus (rather than simply undefined 'citrus' notes). After the opening, which didn't last more than about 30 minutes, this morphs into something quite different from the original.
    The addition of lavender, patchouli, rosemary and olive tree in the middle and base notes gives this a more serious feel than the playful original.
    It's early days yet, but performance seems to be OK for an EDP. It's long lasting but it doesn't project as much as you might expect; certainly not nearly as loud as the Boss Bottled Intense EDP.
    It's the middle of Winter here in Sydney, so I'll probably wear this quite a bit to the office over the next month or so.
