PM you on the Incotex 36.
Had a flu for a little while, still not 100%. Requested samples from Montale. Sampling Red Oud today. It has a sweet caramel smell to it. The oud is there, but not as loud as the Black Oud.
Wow EL72, nice shoes. A bit too busy from the side IMHO, with a swan neck (Edward Green)?
Parfum d'Empire - Iskander for me today. Citrus (lemon) and refreshing.
Thanks Thomas. Quick and easy. Update: Proposed an even split on the lost. Seller agreed and reimbursed me.
Hey everyone, Need your expert opinions and advice here relating to my misadventure with an UK eBay seller (A Power Seller with excellet feedback so far). I am from Canada. Please forgive me for such a long winded message and for hijacking a new thread for my own benefit. I know there is a separate eBay thread in the BS forum. I thought I should start a new one as I hope it will get more exposure. Moderator, if you want to move this, please feel free to do...

I have Chergui, FT and Vetiver Oriental from the SL line. I agree they are very "syrupy" and sweet, but they last a very long time. I think they are more suitable in the cold (read freaking freezing) weather, espeically when it is -15 C to - 30 C outside in the Great White North. More of a warm and comfort scent I think. I can't imagine wearing these in the summer. My SOTD is Domenico Caraceni. Someone suggested this as a cool weather scent. I quite enjoy wearing it.

I was expecting something great, but the initial blast really gave me a strong baby powder smell as well, I washed it off immediately without waiting for the...
Parfum d'Empire Fougere Bengale for me today. The initial blast was a rather harsh (curry, and to a lesser degree at least to my nose, puke....). But once it is gone, the drydown is very pleasant. I usually rotate my scents, but I have been wearing this for a few consecutive days. Didn't buy a bottle, got it in a 2 X 10ml decant from a fellow in Basenote. Should give it a try.
