You have to add a small item to be over €200 and then you get the free gift which is an Aqua Celestia forte Deluxe 5ml sample.

Interestingly, it let me choose 540 as part of the 2 complimentary samples and also let me choose it in the 4x2ml sample pack for €14, so you could get an extra 4ml like that. Seems pretty good.
Aqua Celestia forte is a really nice fragrance, perfect for a hot day like today - the mojito vibe is strong in this one lol. Have you smelled this one yet? I'm wondering how it compares to ELDO's You or Someone like you (which I haven't checked out yet).

It’s not a projection beast at all but it’s a longevity beast. It stays close to the skin and I get beautiful wafts of scent throughout the day.
Sounds good, and that's just the EDP. The extrait must be stonger?

Haven't tried it yet. Hopefully they have it at Saks when I go to try BR540. Maybe tonight on the way home if I have time.

I’ve heard that the extrait is stronger for the first hour and then mellows out and becomes more or less the same strength as the EDP. I guess I’ll find out soon enough lol

Gorgeous presentation on the MFK samples. So far I’m really impressed with this house.

So I have both the EDP and extrait on skin. The extrait has substantially more prominent notes on the opening. A beast mode saffron note is primarily what I smell. Smelling side by side the extrait version all but drowns out the EDP version

Part of the beauty of the EDP version is it’s understated elegance. That’s missing with the extrait version. The saffron note just overpowers the whole scent on opening.

For me it’s EDP all day long over extrait. It’s absolutely gorgeous without yelling ‘hey look at me’. Come to think of it, the brilliance of the EDP version of this fragrance comes from it being understated combined with its masterful harmony/blending of notes. The extrait is a 9/10 fragrance. Still very good but not a GOAT candidate like the EDP is.

Nope it was declared as promotional items/gift with a €5 value. So all good!

Hmm, I wonder if it is similar with the Ouds (Silk & Satin) as they also have extrait and edp.

Yup I have the Oud Satin Mood extrait sample along with the Grand Soir. I need to compare the Oud Satin Mood EDP at some point to see if it’s similar in strength difference
