    Re: When you need the BIG bottle

    Haha! No, Wingie, that's hardly me. In fact, it's like the anti-me. A) I'm female, and B) I don't have a single dot of ink on me.

    A propos the thread title, I just felt like it was a bottle I...

    No, I haven't. Do you find it very similar to Montecristo?

    Re: List and rate the tobacco frags you've worn

    You know, I believe Montecristo might be last thing that really knocked my socks off, too. And that was ages ago. I mean, I've been wowed since then, but not by anything new, meaning created in the...

    Re: Sample Pass and Testing -- Les Indémodables

    I'm just sorry you didn't enjoy more of them. But I guess I'm not really surprised: in the past 3 months I've spent about $200 on samples, and not a single thing jumped out at me enough to make me...

    Re: Your Vintage Scent of the Day (SOTD)

    "Stimulating" is about the most polite way of describing EdH that I've ever heard.

    Re: Did anyone hear about "Cascadeur" ?

    I learned something fun on that page of vintage TV adverts:

    "Wink" in French is clin d'oeil -- which I can't really pronounce properly. Something like clan duh-ee.

    Re: My week with some great cheapies!

    Sold! I just ordered a 1-ounce bottle of Visit. I'm a fan of Menardo's work too, and esp. like her handling of woods and spices.

    Re: Most Overrated Discontinued Frags?

    Okay, the "weave and spin" part of that shocked me a little.

    Apart from fashion, the biggest decline I've observed is in "luxury" leather goods. When Fendi and Coach Leatherware's original owners...
