    Bought an older 150ml of Bvlgari's fabulous Aqva, a bottle of Trussardi Uomo for my girlfriend (she loves it as a go-to scent). And finally I blind bought Club de Nuit Milestone.

    If you have already received it, how do you like it?

    Grats! Apparently TF Oud Wood is one of Chandler Burr's favorite releases of the last 20 years, or some such.

    Actually not a new purchase, but still adding Tesori d'Oriente Royal Oud Dello Yemen although owned for a few years by now, only recently noticed that the BN database includes this one

    My sample wasn't love at first sniff, but something in the dry down kept me sniffing and eventually into my to-buy list. It's quite unique with a fruity oud w/ honey, a bit of saffron (which seems to be my thing lately). It'll be interesting to have a full sprayer to re-test this out and make sure I still like it.

    Nice, I liked this one on test strips, something I've been considering giving a thorough wear eventually.

    Planning on getting another bottle of Versace pour Homme, and maybe some samples of:

    AdP Fico di Amalfi
    Escada Magnetism
    A&F First Instinct
    Allure Edition Blanche
    Azzaro Amber Fever
    Boss Bottled Intense
    Boss Bottled Unlimited
    JPG Ultra Male
    Stronger with You
    Millesime Imperial

    Liked the latter 4 here and wanted to explore them more. Never tried the others but the notes or other factors have intrigued me
