Next up: A split of Amouage Memoir Man - 5 SPOTS AVAILABLE

365

A description from Lucky Scent:
Quote:
The releases from the house of Amouage over the past three years have had a uniting thread: uncomporomised richness and beauty. Their new series Memoir presents a new chapter in this narrative as conceived by Creative Director, Christopher Chong. Turning the industry norm of a dominant woman’s fragrance on its head, Chong instead conceived the two Memoir fragrances from an inherently male point of view. Together, the Memoir fragrances offer a new interpretation of the ‘space’ between man and woman, one that is almost impossible to resist.

Memoir Man is a Fougère, one that fractures the standard mix of Lavender and Oakmoss into bright shards by the addition of Basil and Mint and the further aspect of Absinth. Like a tray of unset gems the topnotes sparkle on the skin, leading into heart notes of Woods and a rich, smooth base of Vanilla, Amber and the traditional Oakmoss. Inspired by Baudelaire’s flâneur who walked the city in order to experience it, the scent brings to mind the richness that is Paris. As the "Gentleman stroller" he is a living duality: both observer and observed, spectator and participant. Won’t you take his hand?

The split will be for 10ml - First come first serve!

The 3.4oz (100ml) bottle costs $260 + $10 shipping from Lucky Scent + $20 in decant supplies = $290/10 = $29 + $5 shipping to you + $5 time + $1 Paypal fee = $40 per 10ml

Next up: A split of Amouage Honou Man - 4 SLOTS AVAILABLE

350

A description from Lucky Scent:
Quote:
Honour Man, the regal, dramatic masculine fragrance with a spicy, woody character, is heir to Amouage’s ongoing (soap) operatic narrative that began with Jubilation, and continued on with Lyric, Epic, and Memoir.

With an intensely peppery, dark opening, Honour Man creates olfactory storm clouds of disquiet, confusion, and drama befitting its back story, which was written by the perfume house’s creative director Christopher Chong and inspired by Puccini’s tragic opera Madame Butterfly.

In Chong’s melodramatic creative brief, Honour is the son of Madame Butterfly, Puccini’s tragic heroine who commits suicide when the American soldier who abandoned her years before returns to take their son. Honour has come back, so the narrative goes, to confront his mother’s tragedy and to come to terms with his identity.

After the blast of pepper, Honour Man allows a fresh, rosy-floral note from geranium to peek through the dark clouds, followed by a succession of warm, woody, and spicy notes, including an intense patchouli that reminds us that Honour is still a fiery young man. Chong suggests that these comforting, beautifully blended base notes represent the reconciliation of our hero’s troubled quest with his “filial elegy to honour his mother.” Its dry down does indeed feel like the denouement to a stormy, existential drama.

Honour Man is housed in a white crystal bottle with a gold-plated cap affixed with a white opal Svarovski crystal.
Honour Man Notes
Pink pepper, black pepper, geranium, elemi, nutmeg, patchouli, frankincense, cedarwood, vetiver, tonka bean, musk

Yeah, they are.

I've ordered a pair of Creeds through them (both the OS and VIW) - both transactions went really smoothly, and they have great communication from their side.

In the case of the Original Santal, I ordered it with the basenotes discount. I got the bottle and it turned out to be a fake (when testing compared to a legit bottle, besides a few other fishy things about the packaging and whatnot). I emailed them, they promptly issued a return order. I sent the bottle back free of charge, and within a week had a new bottle, completely legitimate. They stand behind their authenticity guarantee. I highly recommend them.

See to be honest, that makes them fishier. What if your blind buying or have no idea what to expect from the fragrance, or a novice to fragrances? How many people have fakes that they don't even know are fakes. While it's great they sent you another bottle, the last thing I want to deal with is having to ship something back since they sent a fake version of what i bought.
Thanks for the report though.

Alright cool, so one last spot for L'air.

Question to the parties interested in Chergui, is fragrancenet ok? That would bring the price down to about $106 for the bottle.

I wouldn't buy creeds from them but I've never heard of counterfeit Serge Lutens so it's just a matter of freshness.

They are legit, but if I had to guess I'd say the negative reviews were about how their shipping takes forever and a day, and their customer service is almost non-existant from my experience. But I still have a 15% off code from my old job that doesn't expire so I still order sometimes

Actually I was looking at mostly creed reviews from them and the majority of the negative reviews said they were shipping fake ones. I was interested in the green irish tweed, but think I will just roll with falkon's aventus split for now
