    I'M IN MIAMI, BITCH
    Ok sparky, you're starting to chap my ass now. First off, if you want to save $5, then by all means go on over to Basenotes. She's a fantastic seller and is actually where I got my original split of Rose 31 from. She's also in Taiwan so take that into account when adjusting for shipping times.

    Second, you PM me asking for price breaks if you get in on multiple splits, then tell me that the $87 is "almost as much" as a full priced bottle (which is $130 btw). Then you call me a dick when I won't give it to you and tell you to go on your way.

    Lastly, and this is just a general heads-up, if you're planning on PM'ing me and giving me shit, or asking for discounts, just save it and go about your business. I don't need a bunch of new members coming over just to try and piss in my litter box. If you want to get in, you're more than welcome. If you try and fuck me about, just know that you're not going to get anywhere. I danced this dance once before and I'm about done with these people. Its not worth my time or effort.

    Hey CologneReview,

    Just paid via paypal for the split of Green Irish Tweed.

    How close are you to being able to order the Flacon!

    i just tested Frderic Malle - L´eau D´Hivert and wow... very very nice... anybody interested in a split?

    100ml = 130,- Eur arround 186,- USD

    so:

    10ml =( 18,6 $ + 9$ shipping) * 6,5% (paypal + exchange rate) = 29.5 USD
    comes in an apothecary bottle, without pump if you want pump: + 3$


    80ml avaible

    i´ll test : musc ravageur and bigarade concentree these days

    Is it just me, or has this thread recently been diminishing in value? It's not as 'pure' as it used to be, if ya'll know what I mean.

    I really don't think people understand the time and effort it takes to get one of these splits finished. There's the tracking of people interested, getting all of the supplies, printing all the labels, collecting the money, placing the order, and then comes the fun part of mashing the sprayer for hours at a time. A lot of folks here respect what we're doing, yet some just don't seem to get it. For those I suggest to head over to the Perfume Court and get a load of their prices.[​IMG]

    Received the Vetiver Extraordinaire from MyTailorIsRich . Tops are a bit odd (sweat?) but it mellows pretty quickly into a fresh green/woodsie/earthy scent. C'est bon! And to the more senior splitters - keep up the good work! Some people appreciate and recognize the value! [​IMG]

    i am also appreciative.

    most will not begin to understand the effort it takes to do this.
    unless they've done a group buy, proxy or similar cologne split before.


    it's soooooOOOOO much work.
    the only real return or gain is helping people out.

    I haven't posted much here, but already love this site (got myself a new sweater as well lol).
    I don't know how some of these guys don't ask for more cash in these splits to be honest. I think it would go crazy doing all the work.
    I would never do a split with someone who isn't well received on a site. They could just as easy take off with the money sent to them, or be lazy. Not that I think newbies will...but I'll always air on the side of caution with splits online.

    Cheers for everyone involved, and I can't wait to close that Rose 31 split. Too bad I was late on all these Musc Ravageur split...c'est la vie.

    Glad to hear you got it OK. A very nice vetiver to be sure. And I certainly appreciate the senior splitters. Knize 10 (Rambo) and Tuscon Leather (Rioni) have been two of my favorites recently and they weren't even on my radar.
