    bottle was sent out by the brand, but sampled it before and absolutely loved it, one of my recent discoveries.

    @ILikePeeps Did you order directly from MDCI? Wondering how fast they ship out orders, considering a bottle of Invasion Barbare myself and their sample bonus seems like a great deal.

    Howdy, yes I did; start a dialogue via e-mail with Claude (or whomever) at parfumsmdciparis@free.fr
    He replies pretty quickly. By the time I paid via PayPal, it was a tad too late otherwise he may have shipped it out same day. The next day I received tracking info.
    The method he used can be tracked with Colissimo stuff, and USPS. USPS has it as a 'Priority Mail Express International', which says, "shipments are delivered in 3-5 business days to more than 190 countries.".

    Yeah the sample thing is awesome; it's essentially getting 5 free 11ml decants of your choice, and he supplied one atomizer I think. Just use 1-4 other atomizers and decant into them. They also let you pick one or two duplicates maybe, so out of the 5 samples if you want 2x Chypre Palatin, 2x IB, and 1x something else, that might be fine.

    Went for one, er, two more after noticing the pre-sale is only for another two days:



    They seem like they'll both be different enough from the original. If they're on par, then I'll be a happy camper.

    Did your package ship via USPS? I’ve had awful luck with USPS during the pandemic, had one package stuck in customs for 2 months! Didn’t realize the samples don’t all come with atomizer, guess I can repurpose some decant bottles.

    It shipped Colissimo to arrive via USPS.
    Yeah, they're little splash bottles I think.

    I will be interested to hear about your impressions of Fêtes Persanes. It’s one of my favourites but rarely mentioned here.

    The little splash bottles are great and easy to use by dabbing on to your skin without a sprayer, if you wish to.

    So I actually had a sample of this and it's what also prompted me to choose it as one of the splash bottles.
    To me it smells like MDCI's take on Spicebomb; it's quite similar, but I guess 'refined' in a more polished way. Perhaps a tad more feminine leaning. Quite nice, but I'm attached to Spicebomb. I guess I chose it as one of the splashes to see if I'd change my mind, to use it occasionally. Eventually maybe she'll just end up with it (+ an atomizer?). Hah

    Yes I heard that too I’m curious how the dry down compares to Terre D’Hermes in the dry down. Sometimes I grow bored with Terre D’Hermes in the dry down, I wonder if nose blindness is still a issue with Montale Red Vetiver.

    Yes, Patchouli Leaves is really nice. A mixture of amber and vanilla round out the patchouli and give it some additional ooomph (I've never been a huge fan of straight up patchouli dominate fragrances, but this particular one, along with Profumum's Patchouli are really well done.)
