    Because the show WILL go on whether I can smell right now or not! I have a decant of Amouage Honour Woman, some samples of Reflection, Beach Hut, and Bracken, miniature bottle of Ma Liberte by Jean Patou, recommended by epapsiou to introduce me to vintage, all coming in.

    I concur with Epapsiou in regards to Ma Liberte purchase. I would say, you may, after the taste, be inclined to purchase a full bottle. I found it worthy

    If I can smell it at all, I'll give a report on here, if it's subtle, it may be a few weeks. Nonetheless, quite excited for it, the lavender and creamy sandalwood especially.

    Is that name supposed to mean "overdose"? Or be a sly joke on "oud"? Or maybe both?

    Looking forward to your thoughts on Ma Liberte, haven't tried this one from the house.

    Hopefully it's not turned but if it is, I'll find another bottle.

    I bought decants of Gourmand Coquin and Mon Exclusif.

    I'm exploring Guerlain Ylang & Vanille, Mahora, and Caron Bellodgia. Think I'm going to buy decants of all of them.

    I just bought a couple of new dresses to wear this fall, but COVID fashion is so much about comfort, that I’m mostly going to just restock my leggings and T shirt dresses, and I get that stuff from eBay sellers, and it costs next to nothing. That got boring pretty quickly, so I spent most of my clothing budget on a slab of samples from Luckyscent—some I already know but can’t decide between decants and FBs, and a few new/unfamiliar things. Since I was feeling self-indulgent, I paid the extra 15 bucks for expedited shipping, and got a nice little grab bag of Lubin samples (same deal, some new, some not), since they were offering it as a gift with purchase. Then, I threw in a roller ball of Mojave Ghoat, the oil version, when I realized that the cost of some samples (O Hira, Bortnikoff, and Areej le Doré), cost almost as much as that rollerball. It’s not my usual kind of thing, but, I figured, might as well add something convenient and portable to my daytime/presentable/wear to the doctor-dentist-etc scents, and let LS pay for the high dollar samples. They’ll get plenty more of my money, whether from those, or something else . . . .

    Hope you like Gourmand Coquin. Mon Exclusif was alright but not quite for me.

    Ylang & Vanille is something that I do want to try at least once.

    Small lot of 6 decants that include Indult Tihota(been wanting to try this for awhile) and Initio Parfums Atomic Rose, don't think I'll like but looking forward to trying just because it's different. I'm going to have quite the pile of samples to try when I can finally smell fully again!

    Ma Liberté has been in my top 5 since its release and it’s Rick’s #1 all-time favorite. It’s the only fragrance I have multiple back up bottles of, because Rick goes through it at an alarming rate.

    I have two bottles of Tihota myself, it's that good. It's my favorite vanilla scent.

    Tihota absolutely deserves the hype it gets. I believe Atomic Rose is coming with my LS sample package. I wonder what we’ll make of it.

    Thanks, 24F, khanada, NCal, and hednic!

    You're definitely not alone, khanada! I love Jasmin et Cigarette, too! I'm wearing it right now, in fact.

    Another fan of Tihota here! Impossible to overhype that one.
