    Nice list of you got going there. Definitely try Oud for Greatness from Initio.

    Needed to resupply on my favorite pomade and wanted to qualify for free shipping so I also picked up a Thierry Wasser Guerlain I've heard great things about.

    Thank you, I did some research and was surprised to find out that Egoiste was Bois Noir in 1987, and than it changed to Egoiste in 1990. I know that Bois Noir is very rare and can fetch a high price these days by coveted collectors.

    Correct, imo current is still very good and smells excellent I have never smelled vintage as with a lot of fragrances I can’t miss what I don’t know so I enjoy most of the currents extra sprays if needed are not bad lol.

    Blind bought travel sprays of:
    Malle 'Dans tes Bras' and Baccarat 540, just to discover what it's all about. The Malle could make for a woody floral I think I like, with a bit of weirdness.
    The BR is something one should have at least tried once as it is discussed so controversial.

    Do you feel that current formulations are watered down (or significantly lighter) than vintage bottles are?

    Do you mean vintage Egoiste vintage or Bois Noir when referring to trying vintage bottles?

    Great decision on the Malle, I have just recently gotten my Dans Tes Bras also and love it. Congrats on your 2 new purchases.

    Thanks a lot and best wishes!
    Contemplating the Malle since literally years, and the BR since months. I guess I'll love or like Dans tes Bras, not sure about the BR. Can't wait to find out...

    Wasn't sure where to put this, apologies if this is the wrong area.

    Anyway, considering blind buys from Maison Crivelli, Min New York and Anima Vinci. Has anyone tried fragrances from either of these houses, if so, what are your thoughts?
