only a sniff... so I can't comment too much. My impression about his frags are that tehy're pretty complex, well made, but of course quite expensive. When something's $250-300+ I'm rarely overly impressed since there are so many options that are $150-200 that are excellent. The only one of his I quite liked was the X.

I just noticed that there were a few Basenoters in the area so i spoke with the store, sent out PM's and showed up. I won't say it was easy to organize, but it's not that much work, and you may be surprised who's around. Ask the Neiman people if there's some big sort of launch for anything coming up and then pm various basenotes/MUA/badgerandblade, etc people.
Today - A*Men. I absolutely hated, I mean hated, this when I smelled it and tested it but something about the patchouli+tar sort of rawer notes makes me like it in the end. I'm going to try giving a light application of this for sweetness and then trying something leathery/smokey to try balance it out more.
