    The fondue one? Fun! I love a chocolate fondue.

    I also love the idea of eating chocolate fondue at the forbidden hour - I'm thinking 3 am would be inappropriate.

    I just got two discovery kits from January Scent Project -- one for a Christmas gift, and one for myself. I enjoyed and used up all my previous samples from them and kept waffling about which FB to get... but now they've added 3 new scents so I had to start all over again. John Beibel puts together such a nice marketing package, with the art cards, the mouilettes, and very generous 3ml samples.

    So far, the new Burvuvu is knocking my socks off.

    Very, if you had any intention of trying to go to sleep.

    LOL. Actually it’s a ton of cocoa and patchouli, which reminds me a bit of Coromandel. I found a reasonably priced bottle on ebay from a top rated seller. They have stock in Ogilvy’s but it would cost $100 more. They assured me it was not discontinued, but said the reason why only two of Les Heures testers were on display was because they are having trouble getting their stock replenished. Ha! If you look on Saks and Cartier’s own sites, there are only a few still being sold. It seems clear the line is being discontinued and they are just selling what stock they have left.

    Interesting shape for sure though not quite easy holding & spraying it. I love the scent very much so I can overlook that.

    Thanks, hednic and N.CAL. Yes, I also have Nuit de Cellophane (on my third bottle), Ambre Sultan and Vétiver Oriental and like them very much. Did have Five O’Clock au Gingembre and used it up but no need for more.

    Be sure to try Un Bois Vanille, that one is worth sampling.
