    Am I the only one that thinks it's SPAM when you post in here 20 times a day just to say 'congrats' or 'good choice'?! Is everyone too passive to address this question? If you have the time to 'congrats' someone with a purchase (SPAM), then you should be polite enough to 'congradulate' me on calling you out on it.

    Oh, and congrats to everyone on their purchases.

    You may perceive it as disingenuous but without knowing the true intention behind it it’s probably best to just let it go. There’s no meaningful consequence for better or worse for saying “congrats” to someone when they buy a bottle. On the contrary, it may be nice to hear if it’s a bottle you’ve been wanting for a while and have worked hard to save up the money to get it.

    Just my thoughts...

    The people saying congrats are generally senior members being supportive and acknowledging purchases, which is appreciated.

    Finally got around to buying a bottle of this. Nice little gem here, slightly different, "green" and almost mentholated-vibe that reminds me of Skoal Bandits for some reason within the first five minutes. I'm sure the mentholated-vibe is from the actual tobacco leaf itself which begins to smell more and more like pipe tobacco. It's not overpowering, too sweat or too heavy. It has a familiar feel about it, yet different from Tobacco Vanille and its ilk. Nice scent at a pretty nice price.

    Make an actual contribution. A complete sentence. Something to move the conversation along. That is what should be encouraged and done. Otherwise, SPAM. Senior members should know better. Many members are turned off and stay away from a lot of threads because of the overabundance of these activities.

    If there's a story behind it and it's been shared here or in other threads, then it makes total sense! That's more of what should be happening here. Otherwise, one word posts are just VERY disingenuous. It's pretty easy to spot and see the difference as to which posts are and which aren't.

    In accordance with the subject of this particular thread, I feel as though the type of activity you are describing as "spam" is appropriate.

    Montale Discovery Set:
    Chocolate Greedy
    Vanilla Cake
    Sweet Vanilla
    Wild Pears
    Oudmazing

    These all looked good from reviews and notes. Very intrigued with Sweet Vanilla (Apricot + Vanilla), could be very nice if the notes compliment each other and are done perfectly.

    And on the topic of saying "Congrats", I'm very in between, of course it might be more beneficial and everything to actually say something else alongside it, but just saying Congrats is still cool and appreciated. Don't really care honestly but get both points

    Yes the sweet vanilla as well as vanilla cake sound interesting. Chocolate Greedy is good. Enjoy

    Never tried any of the Aramis bottles myself, the notes break down sound interesting. Congrats

    Agreed that this is a little gem. I love it as well and will probably purchase a back up.

    So let people suffer because SPAM. No, you know that's a no. That's no solution. You're promoting SPAM over actual, real discussion. Right after I bring it up, it continues. They ignore me because they're guilty.

    I tried it and really liked it. Still kicking myself for not buying it on the spot. Now, it just disappeared from the local Melbourne shops.
    Well done on pulling the trigger on this one.

    Similar boat for me. I'm looking to reaquire. I use to have a bottle but returned it. Stupid me.

    This is a house that I am interested in sampling as well, although the names of these particular scents sound like they might be too sweet for my liking. I hope you enjoy them.

    Vanilla Cake is such a great GOURMAND. If you’re looking for something dessert like that’s not loaded up with chocolate, cinnamon, or coffee notes, you should definitely look at VC. I think the name might even turn people away from it—it really sounds like some B+ BW product a 12 year old girl would purchase—but it’s really well done and honestly one of the best gourmand fragrances I’ve encountered. But you should at least like vanilla cake if you’re thinking about checking it out!
