Really?! I love that one, but I had a bottle that I recently sold because I thought it was far too strong for me to ever practically wear. Interesting. L'Humaniste today. Bright, happy, gin scent.
Shell Carminas arrived today, thanks Steve!
AE does not offer lasted trees. I use Epics in a lot of my shoes and definitely recommend them. A few of my shoes have lasted trees (Vass, Buday, Alfred Sargent), a few have semi-lasted (Crockett & Jones, Meermin), and the rest are a mix of Epics, Saphir, and JAB. Woodlore is owned by AE, and makes branded trees for many other companies including JAB. If you are just starting with trees, or you need to purchase a bunch for AE level shoes or lower, I'd get the JABs when...
I would not get that first Woodlore as it doesn't have a full heel. The AE tree is fine, but if you need to stock up on trees the JAB 3 for $25 deal is probably the best deal around. Currently only buy 1 get one 50% off, but I'm sure it will be 3 for $25 again soon:http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop/Product_11001_10050_101593
LOL! Maybe I just associate it with my wife, rendering it unwearable for me
We have a full bottle of it and it's an amazing scent! It's one of my wife's "date night" fragrances. It is really great, but I couldn't imagine wearing POAL for myself. I'm not really big on florals or scents with massive projection like that for me. We're both big fans of FM though. My wife's "work scent" is L'eau d'Hiver and I have full bottles of Geranium Pour Monsieur and Bois d'Orage (French Lover).
Congratulations DWFII!
Yeah, I posted the Carminas on the Skoak thread here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/338047/skoaktiebolaget-carmina-eg-gg-bonafe-official-affiliate-thread/9600_30#post_7699102 No duties as of yet.
Mine are UK9. The Forest is about 11 3/4" and the 348 is about 12 1/4" so that's a pretty big difference. The lasts are shaped so different though and the way my toes fit at the end is also pretty different.The Carminas just arrived from Skoak last week and have only been worn once so far. They were actually a little bit tight so I initially debated returning them, but decided to keep them and see if they would loosen up a bit with wear. The Saphir shoe trees (from NMWA)...
Wearing The Archetects Club by Arquiste today. I smell like vanilla cupcakes.
