    I'll PM HgaleK to see what's happening.

    Rambo - it looks like it's usually about 1 week per person, so with 2 people ahead of you I suspect you won't see it before the end of the month...

    Howdy, yall!

    Sorry it took me so long to get back. I keep forgetting about this thread. The box is fucking HUGE. After I add my samples, we may have to move to a larger box. I'll be getting it out today hopefully.

    I think the assumption was that the actual physical box would grow as the contents did. I originally sent out a small one quite packed, so just adjust as needed. And also help cleanup, like if you see whole glass bottles then just swap them to 30-50ml atomizers and keep the rest to keep this trimmer and lighter.


    Untungle's up next!!!

    Hey guys, I've got the box now. It's... pretty much a ton of stuff. No joke.

    I can definitely put it in a bigger box for you guys. I put in a decent sized sandwich bag of samples and a couple small vials of my fragrances. My go-to is Ormonde Jayne's Zizan. I put 2 vials of that in there, hopefully you all get to try it (if you haven't already!), along with the mainstays like Himalaya and CdG Man 2 and Kyoto for the new people.

    Shout out to whoever put in OJ's Isfarkand last time around because that is what kinda got me looking at her stuff.

    Will report back with my thoughts. I'm digging Bond No. 9 Wall Street, atm.

    It seems like people are holding on the box for about a good 2 weeks before passing it out. is this the general consensus?

    yeah I've noticed that too... guy please try to get it done within 3-4 days, plus 3-4 days of travel time means it's a week per person and with 20+ people, best case this will take 5-6 months to go round as is...

    Hey guys,

    Really sorry about the delays. I just passed the box along. Wanted to get it to him last weekend/early this week, but my schedule was nutty.

    keep cleaning it up along the way if possible. eg if there's half a bottle in there (waste of space and weight) then switch it to a large decant. mostly empty decant, switch it to a smaller set of vials/atomizers. people putting in glass atomizers, switch them to plastic, etc...

    and please keep it generally broken into several smaller bags even with some in sub-bags to prevent the inevitable leakage of one vial messing up a bunch of others.


    and it wouldn't hurt to seperate into basic groups like niche, designer, carded samples, decants, or specific lines if there are multiple... plus if you put in multiple vials/atomizers of the same frag, put them in a smaller sub bag.


    one way I found to work through the box quicker is to search a directly like basenotes and if i read the note breakdown and know it's not for me then I don't even bother smelling it. or if it's like some rare strange discontinued thing, I might sniff it, but if I know I'd never end up finding or buying ($) a bottle anyway, then I don't bother smelling it.

    Would it be a good idea to break the package into two different parcels to get them moving along faster?
