...She's contemplating getting the Hermes rhubarb one right now, which I may pick up for her.

She basically loves anything which is primarily citrus and linear, which I find a little boring, but they do smell nice on her. I wish she would venture into a few of the nice PDM or Kilian offerings for women.
I really like Hermes Rhubarbe Ecarlate too but find that it has poor sillage and longevity. Confused Face

Has your wife tried out D&G L'Imperatrice? It's a fruity floral that's a crowd pleaser.

Not normally, but if you picked up the Roja, I remember that there was a note saying it would shipped on the 8th or something like that.

There's a few Tom Fords in the new arrivals section on fragbuy. Heads up, I think the anniversary sale may end tonight.

You got some sophisticated recs from @charliegee and @cluless ... I'm *ahem* more basic or simplistic. I haven't really ventured deep into the niches or expensive fragrances because the small collection I have will last a long time, given how often I go fragrance-free. Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

What's hot right now is the tuberose / orange blossom / grape methyl anthranilate accord, which was made famous by the 1980's Dior Poison, and is having a renaissance by featuring heavily in some modern crowd pleasers such as:

La Vie Est Belle EdP (Lancome) -- mixed with iris, patchouli and praline
Black Opium EdP, Black Opium Floral Shock (L'Oreal) -- mixed with coffee
Twilly (Hermes) -- mixed with ginger
Givenchy 2018 re-release of L'Interdit (LVMH)

L'interdit hit me as a tuberose/grape bubblegum sweet mixed with vetiver. I got a free sample at the Yorkdale Sephora. It smells purply, vibrant, sweet yet not cloying. I quite enjoyed it and I'm tempted to buy it. I could see it being very versatile for layering, as you can see the other brands that are offering their variants of this accord.

So I got my Kilian Intoxicated travel spray set from the Sephora sale and wore it last week. My son said to me. "Oh are you wearing Kryptomint? It doesn't smell as minty as I remember though" I have to admit, he's not necessarily wrong. Intoxicated does smell similar. :P

Hmm, that Vanille Fatale is tempting or might take a chance on one of those Ferragamos.

I liked Vanille Fatale when I tried it on a trip during summer, Costa Azzura was quite nice too, I notice it's 50 ml and the TV in stock is 100ml.

I think I might pick up that cheaper Ferragamo set, not a bad punt for $29 and I am quite tempted by Chergui and Fille en Aiguilles.


Mancera Cedrat Boise at $99 for 120ml seems like a deal, just a damaged box.
