    Great news.

    And of course already great reviews. Sadly so, but Diorella and Diorissimo are simply not what they were.

    Indeed.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Wow, this certainly makes me want to try Les Années 25, even though I'm not the biggest fan of Shalimar.

    Wow indeed. That is the first review of a Tauer scent that has made me want to RUN to the nearest tester.

    And I too am not a big Shalimar devotee.

    I sampled a while ago. Didn't think much of it. After I read Luca's review today I thought another sniff was in order.
    Found my sample and wearing right now.
    Still don't think too much of it.
    I'm sitting here scratching my head.
    What am I missing?

    Just ordered a sample. And will probably be underwhelmed when I get it.

    I dig Luca's Twitter feed. There's always something good on there:

    Glad to see him writing reviews. I bought a sample. Somehow I figure it'll smell pretty good.

    His writeup of Jicky is fascinating, and makes me want to smell a fragrance I had little to no interest in before now.
