    Default Thank you to BN

    I'm pretty new here, but I wanted to say the BN community is awesome. Tons of great support, positivity, and, most importantly, awesome recommendations.

    Since becoming a member (and under the influence of BN), I've picked up Guerlain Vetiver & Habit Rouge, Azzaro Pour Homme, and YSL Kouros. They are all outstanding. Really happy with all of them. I'm not sure which I like the most.

    Next up: Egoiste, Antaeus and Rive Gauche

    Thanks again!

    BN is truly a wonderful community.
    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.

    As they say: BN is as useful as it is dangerous!

    Where do you plan to source the Rive Gauche from BTW?

    It is a great place.

    I've got everyone of those scents and I found out about all except EGOISTE after joining here.
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    That's a great question. I haven't really started looking. I didn't see many hits on eBay so I assume the search won't be trivial. Open to suggestions!

    I've been where you're at and I know that the itch to smell RIVE GAUCHE POUR HOMME is strong in you.

    10ML gives you enough to wear a few times and really see if you want to pursue it. But it's your money and your call.

    Of course that's easy for me to say with a near lifetime supply through a stroke of luck.

    I love it, but were I all out, I wouldn't pursue an overpriced bottle. There are a ton of other nice barber shoppy scents. Lots.
    It's just one opinion, but I wouldn't pay a severe premium for it.

    You have some attractive trade-bait. I have Rive Gauche. Feel free to PM.
