I emailed them asking if it would be in stock again soon.

Dammit I had everything in my cart ready to go. It literally sold out within the past 15 minutes. Oh well.

Picking up my JM VR&O from James today. Can’t wait to get my nose on it.

Also tried to snipe his rasasi la yuqawam but he just sold it right before I messaged him lol
I blind bought Arab Tradition based on reviews it smelled like Tuscan Leather.

I order a Tuscan Leather perfume oil that smelled like my Arab Tradition.

Couple weeks ago at Holts I was able to test Tuscan Leather. Immediately my wife and I said it smelled just like Arab Tradition. It’s so close and performs like a beast that I’d buy another bottle before I bought Tuscan Leather.

It’s a great Leather and Raspberry bomb. Awesome frag

Kilian has nothing on Xerjoff in the presentation department. The leather they used on the box is even nicer/softer than the Memo boxes. So impressed.

If you were closer I’d let you try mine.

I got mine off eBay. The seller was in Sweden. Paid around $40 for it.

It’s discontinued.

Thanks. I’ll try to track some down.

It smells pretty good from the bottle but haven’t had a chance to put it on skin yet. I’ll definitely post my thoughts later this evening once I give it a few sprays

VR & O is a lighter, sweeter, more wearable and slightly more feminine rose fragrance than say something like POAL. It’s also less daring and less memorable (but really compared to POAL everything is 2nd rate)

It starts off with a heavy rose and a hint of clove. I get a bit of oud on the dry down but it’s a light oud imo. Rose and oud are pretty much the only notes in this frag. There’s supposed to be a praline note but I can’t detect it.

Overall it’s a very nice scent. Longevity is sub par on my skin though.

Scent - 8.5/10
Longevity - 6/10
Overall it’s a solid 8

It’s a bit more feminine than what I’d normally wear. But I’m comfortable in my sexuality so I’ll rock it lol

$100 fairly well spent.

Edit - actually I get the praline note now. Very nice.

I really do like this scent. Just wish it had better longevity

Niche essence needs to step its customer service game up

Called them a few times today. Goes straight to voicemail. Emailed them and no response.

Gary at fragbuy will respond to emails within an hour. His customer service is top notch.

This is one of my fav scents. It lasts about 10 hrs on me and even after that I still get whiffs of it! Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Glad you get such good longevity. I’m a bit jealous. I’m hoping the longevity improves on my skin. It’s really a very nice scent.
