    nice stuff huh? Apparently the vintage juice is much better.

    Seems like that is always the case with fragrence! This is one where tracking down a vintage bottle might be worth the effort.

    Nancy Boy Signature Scent Body Spray - Lavender, Peppermint, and Rosemary. I really, really like it. Good price as well. You have to mail order it, unfortunately. http://www.nancyboy.com/index.php?ma...roducts_id=152

    Gendarme 20 - This one is surgery room clean lavender. I've seen this on the shelves at Bloomingdales. If you want the smell of fresh linen, this is it.


    Both look very interesting. May have to try G20.

    That and price are the two reasons I'd take it over GIT. SoTD = Aventus

    Etat Libre's Antiheros is my fav lavender...but Caldey Island is a close 2nd for its simplicity (and low cost).

    Dia Man for me today.

    I think this thread needs to be referenced: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...=240583&page=3

    Thanks for sharing.

    I was trying to think of something to wear that relates to the royal wedding. All I could come up with was Penhaligon's English Fern from my sample box. Soapy fougere, but wearing it anyway. Meh.

    Speaking of sample box, what about organizing a sample box pass around? Pretty sure that has been done here before? I was thinking everyone that wants to participate sends me minimum 5 samples they want to share. Everyone that contributes goes on the list. I publish the list, collect everything and send it to the first person. Everybody gets to keep the box for like a week (or two?), then sends it on. Any interest in this little project?

    I am interested in ordering some scents from CB I hate Perfume but even at the $15 pricepoint for the 2 mL sample (I know this is relatively cheap but add 3 to the cart and you're at $100 already), I can't buy them all to experiment.

    For those familiar with his scents, can you make a recommendation of 2-3 must tries? They can either be perfumes or accord. I am new to all this. In fact, I just learned the word "accord" today, so take it easy on me.

    Thanks.
