    Honey Aoud, Mefisto and Triumph of Bacchus should all be arriving within the next week. Also thinking of purchasing Sartorial.

    (Blind) bought New York Intense. Based on reviews and comparisons should be a safe buy.

    Nice. Saratorial is a good choice to consider from Penhaligon's

    Nice, grats. Good stuff. If you've tried Bois du Portugal, you got an idea of it.

    I also own Afternoon Swim 100m. I sampled Au Hassard, L’Immensite, Nouveau Monde, and Ombré Nomade in my local boutique. Love the opening of NM but it doesn’t go well on my skin. Becomes more challenging than I like. L’Immensite is pretty nuclear off my skin as well as ON. I do like Au Hassard. It seems to be pretty wearable and different from the others sampled. I want to check out California Dream, Sur La Route, Cactus Garden, and Sun Song. All high quality scents and oil based so they don’t give off the chemical effect you can feel in your lungs when try other fragrances.

    Creed - Neroli Sauvage 4oz tester

    Vintage, specifically; 2005 batch code. The more modern stuff has a reputation of not lasting that long, the vintage on the other hand seems to last quite a bit more?
    Something I noticed also is the ingredients shifted!

    On this 2005 it goes Alcohol -> Parfum -> Aqua. On the latter modern stuff is goes Alcohol -> Aqua -> Parfum. So it seems it was weakened sometime between, I dunno, ~2005-2010?

    Guerlain - Habit Rouge Légčre (Light) 100ml BNIB.

    This one seems decently rare and it just popped up at an incredible price, so I figured why not.
