    Thanks!
    Admit a bit of a mind bend.

    I was certain it was 50%. I only wear out of atmoisers and take 10ml at a time.

    Argh sticky one with buyer. I thought the claim of 30% was too little.
    ...
  95. Odd one. How much would you say remains in this bottle?

    Been enjoying Dunhill Edition loads in the heat recently.
  97. Re: Name the fragrance you tried/smelled today for the first time - 2021

    Aqua Vitae Cologne Forte
    Sunny orange blossom. Powdery and floral.
    Not much experience with the house, though feel I could perceive a housey musk in the base.
    I "got" it more when I looked it...

    Re: Tabac 'Extreme'

    Haha coming back to correct my mistake. Dunhill London? I guess I was thinking 1934/original/for men.

    Alas, I have been spending a lot of time with Tabac Cologne. Replaced the 4711 with Tabac...
