Hey all, few quick things...
1. If you're interested in Dior Private Collection, 30ml decant in atomizer of either Mitzah
or Oud Ispahan
please let me know ASAP. I'm in NYC just for the weekend and Bergdorfs has the 125ml sizes and I'm debating getting them, and will pick them up if someone wants a 30ml off them. Getting the Oud anyway, but debating about the Mitzah.
2. SOTD Dior Vetiver. Smelled this a few times and wearing it all day now. Well, it's a good solid vetiver, more in the citrus green side and somewhat wet. Doesn't go particularly warm, or dry and smokey. Honestly, it's a little boring. It's well composed, lasts all day and projects well enough, but really just doesn't add anything to the category. They only have the 250ml bottles available (will be a special order from France) and I'm just not sold... I've got Chanel Sycomore for the dry side, MPG Route de Vetiver for the earthy/dirty/rooty side, Guerlain's Vetiver for the citrus+tobacco side, also Ford Grey Vetiver for the citrus and tobacco, L'Artisan's Couer De Vetiver Sacre for the berries and vetiver... I mean what else is there? I've tried to warm nutty vetivers like Mona Di Orio, Fat Electrician, Vetiver Tonka, and Diptyque Veteverio (?), etc and will get something in that range (Mona's?)...
guys, sell me on this if it's possible. what am I missing here? It's pleasant but entirely unremarkable IMO.
3. New split just posted - the now discontinued and getting rare LAVENDER PALM - http://www.styleforum.net/t/412037
added - oh hey what's the story with Tauer Rose de Khandahar or something? I've got a sample and it's a beautiful soft rose saffron thing or something, really nice but I've seen a couple of stores with Tauer and they've never heard of this one. I knew it was a limited edition but was it just through his website or something?
and Kilian Apple Brandy, same thing, Bergdorfs had no idea what I was talking about.... Anyone?Edited by Master-Classter - 8/22/14 at 3:13pm
