    D&G Light Blue Forever EDP - 50ml

    My goodness, this is good stuff.
    A very realistic, delicious, sharp and sweet at the same time, almost rindy grapefruit.
    A very unique freshie.

    I was absolutely blown away when smelling this on paper.
    Tested it on my skin and bought it a couple of minutes later.
    This dries down into an extremely intoxicating, sexy, musky - citrus fragrance.

    What even surprised me more is the performance.
    This one spray on my arm was hitting my nose out of nowhere for hours, and every whiff surprised me how good it is.

    Fruits and musk, does this remind you of something?
    This is basically a Grapefruit Aventus.
    No, it doesn't smell like Aventus, you need Mont Blanc Explorer for that.
    But this is the same genre, and quite frankly, better done.

    Well done, Shyamala Maisondieu.

    Burberry - Burberry Brit for Men 100ml (seems to be older / original presentation type).

    Got a sample of the modern stuff in recently and wasn't expecting much, but this is very different than I expected. Reminds me of Habit Rouge & TF Noir. Excellent.



    Edit: Oh, and a sample of Dolce & Gabbana The One Gentleman For Men earlier.

    I bought a 1L flacon of Guerlain Spirituese Double Vanille on the behalf of someone else.
    And way too many Ralph Lauren Polos (Cosmair)

    Neither did I! Canada is all out of SDV until July, where Guerlain is set to launch new packaging for the line. So this 1000mL flacon was offered to me instead at a great price. Also, what a stunning piece of art!

    I couldn't find the bottle on Google.

    FragranceNet has a crazy deal right now on a Gucci Guilty Absolute gift set - 1.6 oz each of EdT, aftershave balm and body wash for $38. I already have a 3 oz bottle but now I should be set even if it ends up discontinued (or is it already?). Picked that up along with a few others I’d been thinking about, gave me the excuse to pull the trigger finally:

    DS & Durga Bowmakers (8 ml travel spray)
    CdG Wonderwood
    Ellie Saab Neroli

    Got bottles of Nasomatto Black Afgano and Tom Ford Oud Minérale on the way. My first full bottle niche fragrance purchases. Waited a long time to decide on a full bottle, but after a harrowing adventure at sea I decided to treat myself to some of my favorites lol.

    Congrats to you — I‘d go for the GGA regardless of possible discontinuation. It‘s a modern classic for sure and can be sprayed in abundance. I have 350ml myself and I‘m not exactly a power backupper.

    Nice, grats. Yeah Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Homme is excellent stuff, I wonder if it's been discontinued or not. It's really really good.

    Hmm, I'm not sure if there is a topic or not. Maybe this is one to spray soon before leaving and being out and about in constantly changing air. The 'stillness' of a room/office setting may aid olfactory fatigue, unfortunately. I think I'll put some on today before doing yard work!

    Looking forward to it. I smelled from a tester bottle at Neiman a while back but I think the bottle may have been bad or my nose was messed up, because it wasn't really pleasant. Definitely eager to try again!
