Finally! I think this new version is really nice:

One that I sold off and wish I hadn't:

375x500.13955.jpg


Another one I've bought and sold more times than I can count--this time I'm keeping it (probably). I'm curious how this formulation turns out:

And finally one more that I bought and sold. For $38, I couldn't resist. I bought two: one to use and one to keep stashed away (I do that for every A*Men release):

Guerlain - Rose Nacrée du Désert

Don't know if this has been discontinued or not, but it does seem a little hard to find (especially with Notino not active at the moment for USA). Also not sure which version of the presentation I'll be receiving! Blind buy as far as I'm aware.

Amouage-_Tribute_12ml_01.jpg


Amouage Tribute 12ml bottle. Looks to be about 60% full. It's a tester, so seller didn't know if it was white or red box. I had them describe the aroma. Definitely sounded like white (not much rose presence)... so I bid and won. :)

Wow ! This is the perfect replication of the 1947 version of Jacques Fath Green Water ! Forget about the 1993 Green Water formulation (which I found bad ) and go for this parfum version if, like me, you were nostalgic about the vintage Green Water .

Congrats, Nick!

I've been meaning to get around to this, and it's usually sold out at the store from which I plan to buy it. Beautiful scent...Enjoy!

Congrats, great scent. I purchased a one off 10ml decant they were selling when it was first released. I still have quite a bit left as you only need a spray or two for good longevity and projection.

Cheers guys, I gave it a test mid-last year and was impressed with it. Jack, I remember you were an early mover on this one, thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Congrats! Looks intriguing. I've not explored the house of Fath much, but this release looks enticing.

Dior - Eau Sauvage 200ml

Believe it or not, I'm not entirely sure I've smelled this at a store before! I probably have, it kind of seems like I have.. but I'm not positive. Is that bad? Haha.

Since this one might have a longevity issue... how many sprays do y'all usually do for this one? I might do skin and clothing. Not a big fan of carrying decants around, but I may for this.. dunno.

The one you show is not the new one but the version from 2010 which was launched after the ribbed frosted bottle.
This is the newest version (as of 2 years now?!):

Which one did you actually buy buysblind; curious here?

50 ml Thé Noir 29
50ml Iris 39
30 ml Pomelo Paradise
I need to pick them up at airport on departure from BKK.

I also spend my afternoon with Prin Lomros from Pryn Parfums to smell his ‘may be’ future releases, there are so many good ons. I love Aranyaka, Ancient Jungle scent from his Bespoke service.

When I'm stressed, I binge. Yesterday I bought a used lot of Chanel Allure Homme Sport, Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme and YSL L'Homme Ultime. $119 shipped for the kit and kaboodle.

Nice pickups, Chuck! I own and love the first two and am looking for a deal on the last, which I have put my nose to.

Wonderful purchase! :thumbsup:

Congrats on this! :thumbsup:

Thanks! Looking forward to getting them. My interested boosted in the Guerlain when I looked up 'nacreous' from the translation for Rose Nacrée du Désert (Nacreous Rose of the Desert), except I'm not sure if Nacrée is nacreous or pearly. /shrug.

But if you search Google images for 'nacreous'... boom:

Spotted and bought a Zippo gift set at the local TJX for $20 that included a 50ml lighter style bottle that clicks like a Zippo lighter when opened, a 50ml refill, a 100ml body wash, a 125ml shaving balm and a stick of deodorant. Not much at risk here for $20. You know you are a collector when you are easily amused by a clicking lighter style bottle.
