SOTD - https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Rep ... 12897.html


Had a sample of this abomination I think I was given at Sephora when I bought Vanille Extreme from CSP.

Going on was quite pleasant, nice salty sea notes...dry down is horrid putrid seaweed. I see the mid-notes for this on fragrantica are "coral reef"...I presume they mean one off Juhu Beach not the Great Barrier.

The Xerjoff Universe site is online. Thankfully for my wallet they're not shipping to Canada. Maybe shipping to the States could be an option for some here?

I like the idea of creating your own sample kit and getting the price refunded if you end up buying a bottle within a couple of months. The Coffee Break online exclusives sound really good.

I was looking at that too. I’m not sure if there’s any duties and if there is, will kinek pay for them on my behalf? Those exclusives that are tempting.

Anyone have any reviews or comments on Zoha?

They are a local and deal in oils only (inspirations).
Yeah I got 6 last week, aventus clone is kind of aventusy but I don't like aventus, pegasus I have not smelled the real thing but I don't the smell of this one, herrod I have a decant and it smells similar/close, bleu de chanel is similar, i got a Madagascan vanilla original and while only tested it once i wasn't a fan, and armani code profumo which I tested once at a Sephora and while that was a while ago I don't think it smells like how i remember it. I liked the real thing, the zoha one is alright but honestly probably won't use it, you get kind of rootbeery smell.

so maybe 3-4/6. The prices are cheap enough that I thought it was interesting, hindsight I probably would have put that money ($60) into 1-2 splits/decants of something I really like. First time using oils, performance is good, I had like 4 of them on my arms and it past the go to sleep, wake up and it's still there test I do. Also got on my pillows cause I smelled the aventus one on my pillow the next day.

I don't like the oily sheen it left on my arms, and the aventus one some oil leaked out I guess in shipment. Not a lot, but enough that it got on my hands, and when I tried to wipe it off the oil took some of the label off with it.

Would I recommend it? I'm indifferent, If you want to gamble to see if you can find one you like and will use, $60 for 6 scents (i got the 6mls of each) isn't a bad price. I just don't think I am used to, or really want to use oils.

Anyone have decants or decanting BR540 Extrait? TIA!
Fragbuy has 11ml travel sizes of the EDP for $40. The extrait is tougher to get though. Haven’t seen anyone decanting that yet. I have about 4ml of it from a couple MFK sample packs. Best would be to maybe gauge the demand for a group split.

I can give you a €14 off code for the MFK site if that’d help you out. Or you could ask Gary at Fragbuy to add a bottle to his next MFK order.

SOTD - Kilian Back to Black

Typically described as a sweet honey tobacco. When I think about it I can get the similar vibe.

Definitely unisex

Asked my wife and kids what they think: “You smell like baby powder”

Damn expensive baby powder :)

SOTD - Tom Ford Tobacco Oud

Sprayed it and my gf was like ‘wtf is that’. She hates it.

Don’t care what she thinks. This scent. Wow.

LOVE.

@int @Easto @CashJinx boys....easy on that trigger though. The sprayer on those 50ml bottles we got are BEAST MODE

I am so on the fence with Tobacco Oud.

My wife actually doesn’t mind it. Says it smells like incense in church.

I get whiffs that I really like then I get whiffs and I’m not sure if I like it. It’s very unique to me, very strong, and IMO needs the right environment to wear it.

I’m thinking outdoors cold weather this one will be great.

And I agree, the sprayer doesn’t hold back!
