    Both are scents I've tried, and I love. Sheiduna is expensive and I got a sale / deal via Surrender to Chance for it. Carmen, is kinda hard to find, as well.

    Thanks, these are old favorites from the past, glad they are still in production. A friend who bought them recently said they were still good, so I decided to repurchase. They should arrive today!

    Thank you to hednic as well, I’m looking forward to a walk down memory lane. :-)

    Finally remembered to go into Zara and check the Jo Malone made fragrances for them. No discovery sets but they did have testers for all the fragrances.

    Tried Ebony Wood, dark woods but nothing outstandingly different.

    Really liked the Bluebell one but the dry down just did not wow me.

    Actually bought the Fleur de Patchouli actually reminds me of Van Cleef Midnight Patchouli and has lasted through a hand wash too.

    Wooo! I bet you'll enjoy them all to some extent and get more pleasure out of the sheer variety, especially through the seasons.

    4160 Tuesdays Captured by Candlelight, Eat More Flowers and Clouds edp. Oh, and Montale Sweet Vanilla, which turns out to be a dup of Comptoir Sud Pacifique Abricot Vanille. Wishing I had bought Vanille Absolu instead.

    Montale Vanille Absolu had a very plastic like smell to it I recalled. Congrats on your 4160 Tuesday bottles.
