    Re: Room 1015 - Anyone sampled this house?

    Re: Room 1015 - Anyone sampled this house?

    For my first impressions off test strip, Atramental opens very fresh, industrial, gasoline, inky, salty, spicy, and animalic/leathery. I notice the cardamom that is also in La Nuit de l'Homme, but...

    Trying Blomma Cult, and after spraying it on test strip, the fragrance really lingered in the air. It is sweet and has this pseudo-mystical smell to it. I wonder if I'm being influenced by the...

    Similar to my experience with Electric Wood, Hollyrose smells less harsh when I'm wearing it on my skin than when I was testing it on a test strip. Opens with a mentholated sweet fruity jammy rose....

    Re: Helmut Lang Cuiron Copy Cat

    I supposedly got a sample from Surrender to Chance of the vintage formulation, but I can't tell for sure. I definitely get a similarity to Odeur 53, and I also get facets of the drydown also in...

    Wearing Black Tie again and I finally see why some people compare it to Bois d'Argent. There are definitely facets of Bois d'Argent in Black Tie, particularly that orris butter smell. I was able to...
