Received BillyD's Millesime Imperial split a few minutes ago.

Package was in excellent condition, absolutely no smell of spillage within the envelope but the amount i received was 45ml instead of 50. Can't be blamed on a leak. I hope BillyD has a good explanation for that

Looking forward to hear from him

i had 5 bottles, two were different than the other 3
i usually filled the bottles i used to but then i saw that the last bottle was only about 35 - 40ml in it
but the big MI was empty, so the other bottles must have had some more in it
i had no syrenge so i filled some in the last bottle until they all looked like they have the same amout

my fault, i´ll refund you the 6$

I really appreciate your honest gesture to refund, BillyD (you got my paypal, but let me know if you want me to send it again via PM), like i said there must have been a good explanation for that missing 10%. Now I know: Misleading bottle shapes.

Far from wanting to sound unnecessarily paternalistic, may I recommend you to invest one or two euros on a 60ml syringe, so, for better or worse these volume calculation mishaps will not occur again?

Given the crazy prices per ml those fragrances command, it's always good to be precise to the ml. Plus my expectations were sky-high due to the world famous and highly regarded Deutsche Präzision!

Thanks for explaining and for the refund. I look forward to future splits

So the front desk called my wife to notify that the mailman was there. Apparently they can't sign for registered mail (this was sent registered??). The mailman was pissy because I noted in the online delivery request to either have the desk sign or bring it to us - someone will be home. The lazy piece of shit was complaining "I don't leave the mail room or go knock on doors." What the fuck, so do you not deliver packages to anyone? Isn't it your fucking job to deliver the mail? The postmaster will be getting a call about this asshole.

i love the Creed BdP, but my wife decidedly does not, so I'd like to pass it along. I participated in Rambo's split (described below). I have sprayed it a total of five times. Approximately 1.6oz. $80 shipped to you in the continental U.S. Paypal personal payment please.




A split of CREED Bois du Portugal - CLOSED A description from Creed Boutique: CREED Bois du Portugal
The word "bois" means "woods". The fragrant woods of Portugal inspired this luxuriously rich, warm and masculine blend.
Classification: Woody/Oriental
Characteristics: A rich, warm, mysterious scent, CREED Bois du Portugal is bursting with personality and power. Its intoxicating aroma charms you at once, then slowly invites you in to explore its hidden depths. Complex, alluring, soothing. Although it is beloved by men,CREED Bois du Portugal is also appealing to women who appreciate a rich fragrance.

Top Notes: Bergamot
Middle Notes: Lavender
Base Notes: Cedar, sandalwood from Mysore, vetiver and ambergris

-A quick note before we continue - I was asked to host this split and take care of the leg work as the person who was interested in doing it felt that some with more experience might be able to handle it better. I agreed, both to be nice and to help out this thread which needs a boost, but its quite a bit of time and work and I have no interest in this scent, so I'm not doing it for free. There will be an additional $5 on top of each split for my time and effort. If you have a problem with this I will be happy to ask for $10 instead. The 8.4oz (250ml) bottle costs $350 and this is going to be a 5-way split. Each portion will come in a glass 2oz atomizer bottle and will be shipped Priority mail in the US (International buyers will pay extra on top of the $6 for shipping). International buyers please notify me in your PM's. Costs on each portion will be $87 and breaks down to $70 for the juice + $12 for the bottle and shipping + $5 for me. Payments provided via Paypal gift only. PM me to be included in the sign up: 1.) fashion_newbie - payment received 2.) collingsnyc - payment received 3.) curt 2121 - payment received 4.) KObalto - payment received 5.) Notreknip - payment received

Your shipping and atomizer costs will be more like $3 a piece once you factor in shipping from the web store and your shipping costs, once you factor in materials like padded mailers, bubble wrap, and tape. All this shit costs you in the end so its only right to split it amongst the participants.

I'll allow this for now, since the fragrance sales thread is in the wind. In the future guys, please post any of your unwanted splits there.

In that case, it's $28.6 per 10mL. I can't seem to figure out how to edit post. Can only admins do that? Or maybe I need more posts.

edit: oh. it looks like it times out after some time.

Also, if no one's interested in Chez bond, I'd also be interested in L'air du Desert Marocain, Chergui, and Tea for Two.

Just my two cents on Tauer's L'air du desert marocain if you haven't tried it on your skin yet: Get a small sample (The perfumed court or luckyscent, for example) before you get a more conspicuous split. That stuff is extemely potent, and i personally can't stand it, even in small amounts. There is a lot of fuss about it everywhere (here, basenotes, youtube...) , but believe me it is EXTREME stuff. If you were in Australia i would definitely gladly give you my spritzed once (and never again) vial for the price of a McMuffin, or trade it for any other fragrance that doesn't make me retch. I thought i could stand gross stuff in general (smells included), until i found L'ADDM

According to BillyD, if the main bottle was a full 250ml, and i got 45 (refund still pending), someone else must've received a flacon containing 55ml. If you haven't sprayed it on yet, just get a 60ml syringe (even without a needle they always have a use around the house) and find out. My bottle had a quite noticeable "headspace" above the liquid, and that's why i decided to measure more accurately.

JohnGalt: they were all sent registered i guess. From Germany is pretty cheap (5.50 euros) and easy to track. I actually wish we had the same thing here
