Just finished the mad spending spree recently ( most Rojas ) and few things missing that I needed back in.

So now that it's all gone out of control I will head into hanging up the fragrance buying boots.

It's one of my favorites and I know what you mean. But I just look at it as it's just a little drawback to being one of the best citruses out there. It just goes with the territory.

One thing I've learned is that spraying it amply on clothing (shirt) can really help with the longevity. And of course, don't hesitate to give yourself a good dousing as well. After I became more and more familiar with Eau de Cologne, it seems that I can smell it much better than I used to for much of the day.
I will try spraying it on clothing, I’m sure that will help. It really is glorious!

The new Roja and the new LV are on my radar. I hope to try them in Hawaii this week.

I’m down about 8 bottles since January, so I’m due for a couple of new ones.

Nothing at the moment, it's been that way for a while as well. Just wearing what I already have.

EDIT: I also meant to say, I'm adding back up bottles to what I currently own as well.

Guerlain Vetiver. My wardrobe is very much lacking in vetivers at the moment. I'm eyeing the Guerlain. I've historically worn a lot of Grey Vetiver and Vetiver Extraordinaire. I've previously had and worn Guerlain Vetiver as well, though not as much. Looking to get a summer vetiver in this ballpark, and Guerlain is the leading candidate. Unless I pivot eventually and go for the Malle.

A solid choice for vetiver, I don't think you'll be disappointed with.

You should look at Terre d'Hermes Eau Intense Vetiver, I like that one a lot.

I’m eyeing Allure Homme Edition Blanche. I’ve heard it’s pretty much like Sport, but with Lemon instead of Orange - can anyone else here who has smelled it, give their opinion? It’s not available to sample anywhere near me.

Jubilation 40 and TF Azure Lime. Perhaps House of Oud Gambling, but I don't see it for sale at any of the Canadian fragrance shops.

I think I'll pass on Sadonaso Darth Vader edition, which just looks puerile. Just what we need: another Secretions Magnifique wanker flanker.

They smell substantially different to me, Edition Blanche is much better.

If only the opening of Azure Lime lasted longer than 15 minutes....
