    Hello Purplebird7, Glad to see you back and always wanted to let you know how much I admire your reviews and of course the beautiful LHB review. Your near state neighbor, Minka
    Hey Purplebird,

    I understand you may have a few items to sell. Would love to learn more about what you've got.

    Many thanks,
    ~JK
    Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won't stay there. The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances. Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.

    Hi Purplebird7, if you ever come across a sample or some amount of Elizabeth Taylor's Passion I'd love to get your take on it since I've always enjoyed your reviews. Luca Turin called it a "fog horn" in The Guide. I don't agree. I have the pure parfum (which is what I smelled first) and the EDT purchased from the drug store afterwards (skip this). A friend found a 5ml parfum mini in some stuff he'd purchased at an auction and gave it to me. I won't say any more until, hopefully, you come across some one day.

    Was confused about your review of Malles' Vetiver Extreme.
    You said it had less than average duration. I sprayed some on yesterday at their store in Paris. 26 hours later it was clearly albeit faintly still there. I would rate it an A++ for longevity. Different skin chemistry?
    Thanks for your reviews though.
    Hello - I read & very much enjoyed your review of Chocolate Amber ( AbdesSalaam Attar Profumo). May I ask if you ordered a sample somewhere, or order it directly? Thanks so much.
    Your review of Givenchy Gentlemen was right on. I feel that it confuses people a bit, and outright throws others off completely, since it takes a bit of patience and suspension of first-judgement. For instance, there's more to it than just patchouli. Anyway, I was just really glad to see someone give it it's full due...to sort of see it through till the end. You gave it a fine reading indeed. Thank you.
    Hello Purplebird,
    I should soon send a parcel to Aiona's group but as you know she is out of the game for some time. Would you like to receive her scents in her stead?

    Your review of Rasa Extreme by Ava Luxe had me laughing my a** off! Really funny. I think I'll go look for more of your reviews:)

    You have a nice, clear and concise way of describing a scent and I'm finding that whenever I'm reading reviews about certain scents before purchase, yours are the ones that I'm inclined to rely on as accurate because usually they are. Thanks.
    Hi, just read your review of "Angel" and thought it was hilarious! I have the perfume myself, it's kind of a "guilty pleasure" as I know it reeks and lots of people can't stand it...but for some reason I just had to have it a couple of years ago! Haven't worn it since last winter and am now considering retiring it altogether in favour of something more sophisticated.
