    L'Artisan Tea for Two. This might be the next bottle I actually finish - although I think I got it in a swap with 30% left, so it's not like I've been using it like a madman.

    I still have to try this! Gonna place another order tomorrow.

    Thinking of picking up either Musc Ravageur, Vanille 44 or Guerlain Vetiver (or all three) at the same time, but can't make up my mind.

    Vanille 44 sucks. Guerlain Vetiver is not as good as it used to be. Musc Ravageur is a winner.

    Lubin - Idole

    Parfum de Nicolai - Nicolai Pour Homme


    Really like Idole. NpH had a strange opening but grew on me quickly. It's very masculine, along the lines of Eau d'Issey or Terre d'Hermes.

    List looks like a great mix.

    The Divine was quite good - both the original Homme and Sage. One of them reminds me of the Aramis/Azuree family of leather/citrus chypres, just done better.

    The Montales I tend to exclude, only partly because of price.

    Idole - I loved that one and srsly considering a bottle one of these days. Would like to thin the herd down beforehand.

    CDG - toss the Hinoki and add Palisander - I really liked that one and occasionally regret throwing my decant in the swap box.

    ...the rest, I have no idea about but I might have a sample or two of a few of them lying around.

    Agree with this statement - Dia Man, Lyric (m & w), and Jub xxv.

    Montale Greyland today. After the initial cumin overload, it's not half-bad. It reminds me of Rose 31 sans rose. It also reminds me of cooking ground beef for tacos, but I'm going to ignore that part.

    I want to try them but they're so fucking expensive that its almost not even worth it. $300 for a 3.4oz is just too rich for my blood.
    Really like Idole. NpH had a strange opening but grew on me quickly. It's very masculine, along the lines of Eau d'Issey or Terre d'Hermes. List looks like a great mix.
    Thanks

    I tried the Divine and Idole before and liked them both but have since forgotten what they smell like. I'll report back once they come in. If I like the Idole we can work up a split.

    Thanks for the suggestions Dane. Always appreciated. Willpower recommended the Antico Caruso a while back. The Mark Birley gets good reviews. What didn't you like about it?

    Again, they all sound great, but they're so damn expensive its just not worth it. Maybe I'll splurge for a sample or two.
