I've been willing to try some of those ELd'O, but I find this big sample coffrett a little bit too pricey. And just by reading their frag descriptions I know there would be many I wouldn't like, do I went for HdP. Next discovery purchase - Parfum d'Empire
Hope you'll enjoy your 12-element set from Histoires de Parfums. I remember when I got mine (also 12). That was my first niche experience at my very beginnig at Basenotes. And it was only few months ago. Now I feel like I've been here for ages.
