    Tried Jubilation XXV today and liked it much more than I thought I would. I have had very good luck with sandalwood scents but pretty bad luck with incense-based ones. Jubilation is probably the best incense-based one I've tried. Too bad I missed the split!

    Incense and a dried fruit note. Good longevity.

    I'm sure there will be another split in the near future. Hell, I'll probably end up hosting it myself as I'd like to have at least 10ml around for the collection.

    Burberry - The Beat

    Just received some samples of Grey Vetiver and Terre d'Hermes that I'm eager to try...

    On the Burberry note, sporting an old bottle of London today. Shame it was discontinued.

    SOTD is going to be Creed Erolfa again. Trying to find something to enjoy with this one.

    Also was trying to figure out if folks would be interested in a split of Selection Verte by Creed. It's apparently in their "Private Collection" and only being released for a short period of time.

    I don't think that its THAT special. You can get it pretty regularly.

    Oh I was reading that it's been released this year and then once it's gone it goes "back into the vault". Like I said I've got no clue, just what I had read. I know it has some fans on here and BN and since you can only buy flacons I figured it'd be a good split.

    I beg to differ on the longevity. It ranks as the lowest in longevity amongst all my niche/designer colognes. I have to spray four times on my neck to get around 6 hours MAX of longevity. That being said, it's my favorite :p

    Huh. I was under the impression that it was always available. At least it seems that way.

    PSA: Bond No 9 refill event starts this Sunday: Buy any two items (except for pocket sprays), and get a free 100ml "refill" bottle for free. It's a regular bottle, but in a plain cardboard box and no cap. Think tester bottle. Refills are a limited selection (dont expect the Harrods limited edition), and the popular ones go fast. Supposedly they make you bring in an empty perfume bottle, but I know Saks SA's often dont bother asking.

    Jack Black JB EdP today - just like Terre d'Hermes, but a bit more on the citrus, bit less on the pencil shavings.

    Prior few days were Tom Ford Italian Cypress.

    If anybody is planning on doing a Bond split that would be a great way to maximize your returns.

    I have been using Guerlain Vetiver and YSL Opium and would love to hear your views on what fragrances would appeal to my tastes, Thanks.

    Just wanted to report back to SF members on my new fragrance purchase, I went for the Gucci Pour Homme.

    master-classter, I am very interested in GV, might see if there is enough interest to do a split.
    Hmmm, I'll probably pass on that for now. I have so many vetivers and this one doesn't add anything to the mix to be honest. I nearly got a bottle for cheap off Basenotes hence the tester sample. Plus I think it's only 50ml bottles so harder to economize.

    I'm probably showing how much of a n00b I am, but I just discovered a tester of light violet Prada cologne that smells fucking incredible. I haven't loved a fragrance like this in ages. It's a bit floral, almost feminine, but god damn. I know what I'm asking for on my birthday [​IMG]
    I think you've got Prada Amber. It's a soapy floral type thing. Very nice for any weather and any occasion IMO. Some find it a little synthetic though. If you want more irish springs and less pot pourit, try Mugler's Cologne.
