Very polarizing, but I like it.

Heavy hitter
I love TF Tobacco Oud intense. Unfortunately my wife has put the kibosh on me ever wearing it in her presence.

where does one get br540?

I have a large collection of Alexandria Fragrances inspirations and originals but also have a large collection of originals as I need to keep my wallet in check unlike some people I know, wont name any names.

Hard to say about AF regarding the collection it just depends on what you are looking for - all of of their inspirations I find are in the 90th percentile to match the original fragrance.

1. You can buy it any retail store that carries MFK fragrances.

2. You can join a Facebook group and buy a bottle there if someone is selling one (they come up periodically)

3. You can join a Facebook group and buy a decant from someone there. If you ask, someone will likely sell you one.

4. You can buy a clone. I have a clone oil and a decant of BR540 EDP. They smell almost identical. I’ve heard BR540 is made up entirely of synthetics so it’s an easier frag to clone.

Saks is the only store I know that carries it and for the clone AF makes a really good one - we have both versions. Really prefer the Extrait version personally.

Oil perfumery.

Google search it.

If you want a spray check out Zoha Aroma, they have a BR540 clone that is pretty close to spot on from what’s I’ve read. And it’s Canadian.

For anyone in this thread, they probably already know, but in the off chance someone comes across this and they do not...

For Canadian purchasers I highly recommend fragrancebuy.ca, perfumeonline.ca and fragrancex.com.
Have ordered from all three recently, fast shipping, good selection, some hard to find gems, authentic fragrances at a fraction of retail.

FragranceX is located in the US (Hauppauge, New York) but they offer free Canadian shipping with no minimum with code FSW.

Here is a link to $5 off from FragranceBuy.

I think it may be for first time purchases, I got it when I signed up.

And $5 off from PerfumeOnline.

Cheers.

You missed out, Costco had these in store this year as part of their fragrance selection - if you were lucky enough buy them before the price drop you could've gotten for a steal of a price once they were dropped to clearance prices.

Weird.. I frequent Thorncliffe, Etobicoke and Scarborough (not so much anymore) and they all had stock and lots of especially near the end where people just weren't buying them anymore.

Fragrancebuy.ca will be your bet moving forward, just wait for their deals to come through when they have their specials, there might be one coming up for Family day but hard to say until it happens.

markopas may have been referring to Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza, which were among the last bottles to be cleared from Costco.

Probably a long shot but does anyone have KIlian - Sacred Wood they want to sell a decant of?

Not to be that guy, but anyone have a free ship or discount code they wish to PM me for fragbuy? I can easily justify spending $400+ but the taxes suck... :(
