    As I understood it, it became too expensive to make. Kind of understandable, I guess, but given their price point - REALLY? SRSLY?

    After a day of wearing it I'd say the top notes are too much for me, but as it wears on I really do like it.

    I think I need a better method of applying samples, how do you guys apply samples?

    I heard the same thing about AA too actually... PM me and we'll talk numbers since I may be able to help you guys out there...
    1. Eh, I've smelled it a few times and you're not missing out... personally I think it's pretty boring.
    2. I think Neiman's had the exclusive for quite a while and we just got it a few days ago here in Canada/Toronto.

    I tried it on paper in December at Neiman Marcus. The top-notes somehow reminded me of Sprite of all things. I wonder if you or anyone else got that out of it? It seemed to be getting better, but the top notes were a real turn-off for me.

    I've been really excited to try Lavender Palm, but the bottles I've seen have been absurdly expensive. The perfumer is Yann Vasnier, who did the Divines that I love so much (L'Ame Soeur, L'Inspiratrice, Divine).

    I've heard hot and cold about Lavender Palm. If Vasnier did it, then I'm curious - really curious.

    Dior Eau Noire. This one is fun to wear. Lavender with immortelle, which smells like curry-infused maple syrup.

    Uh-oh, that sounds like something that's right up my alley! No, I haven't tried it, but I probably will.

    Just got my full bottle of MPG George Sand. I love it! Rambo, I'm curious what you thought of it? (Best I can tell, it doesn't smell like any of the unwashed parts of a lady.)
