I do too! I have a bottle on the way from Essenza Nobile. Love the juniper/gin notes in it!

Does the one in SF have the other city exclusives? I need to call the lady that helps us

They have most. I don't think they have the Chicago one.

Oh, and it's $290 for 50 ml.

I wore Paco Rabanne today in 102 degree Texas heat and quite liked it. The fragrance, not the heat.

Another sale, another FB binge. Combined with birthday and Fathers Day presents, here's what I've bought in the past day or so:

Idole EDT
Opus III
Lyric Man
Atlas Cedar
Terre de Sarment
Poivre Piquant
Cour de Vetiver
Seville a l'aube.
Genie des Bois

Better put my wallet away for a while, I think.

Luca Turin's review for Amouage's Fate Woman. *****
Quote:
How time flies. It seems only yesterday (actually five full years) that Christopher Chong took over Amouage’s art direction and propelled this Omani firm, then known chiefly for its classic no-expense-spared Gold, into the first rank of perfumery. Chong is that rare bird, a natural perfumery art-director, who knows what he wants and will not give up until he finally smells it. In a recent interview with Style.com/Arabia, he said that Fate was a loud fragrance, so one expects a massively-built monster like the wonderful Ubar reissue in 2009. The surprise begins with the first puff from the spray: a fresh, radiant, powdery advance guard briefly fills the room. Seconds later, you are faced with one of the most intricate and beguiling fragrances in years. Nothing this big, complex and beautiful has been done since the first Boucheron. Though the top has a Guerlain-like appetizing feel, Fate borrows its core from Opium, i.e., woody-balsamic with an emphatic dose of the cool minty note that separates it from the merely warm, dusky Cabochard-Cinnabar style. Opium’s virtue was its novel, instantly recognizable tune, of which we eventually tired. But don’t let the reference put you off. Fate is to Opium what Mitsouko was to Coty’s Chypre: a transfiguration. The central structure is deep in there, now cloaked in a cloud of radiant dust borrowed from the unstructured opulence of Gold, plus—a brilliant touch—a dry, fresh cigar-box cedar note to guard against excessive sweetness. Loud? Possibly, but comfortably so, without harshness or distortion. Like very few fragrances, Fate delivers the rush of physical glee you get when you sit in the front row of the stalls and a great orchestra begins to play. Just don't wear it to supper.

Profumo's Oud Caravan No. 3 received *** as did Slumberhouse's Norne. See here.

I love Luca Turin and find him to be a rock among a see of perfume reviewers best described as pseudointellectuals and nincompoops.

Acqua di Parma colonia Essenza

have to say I prefer the standard AdP but this is pretty good too.

This is my first time wearing it, but I'm enjoying it very much so far. It's Guerlain's entry into the rose/oud genre, and so it's not especially groundbreaking or original. But it's very high quality.
