Thanks! Your experiences with CAHSEE convinced me to order a 5ml decant/sample - can't wait to try it out.

SOTD: John Varvatos Vintage
haha hope you enjoy it! I think my next Chanel will be Bleu EDT. I recently tested it and really enjoyed the grapefruit incense combo. I dont know why I've overlooked this one.

SOTD - Tres Nuit

I would like to get my nose on Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche. Just curious, on why you want the EDT over the EDP. Is there much difference? I've only smelled the EDP.

Lol, that was how it was for me when I was trying to smell Habdan.

I did a side by side in-store and the SA recommended the EDT as it projected more and was "brighter" than the EDP on my skin. I asked her a half hour later and she still agreed the EDT was better on me.

What means SOTD?
Hi foolek94. SOTD = Scent Of The Day. Sometimes we just like to say what we're wearing on a particular day.

Good to know, thank you.

Dua Fragrances has 25% off for 2 days, I guess Tuesday and Wednesday.
Use Code DUA25 for 25% OFF
*Excludes clearance & non-fragrance items.*
https://www.dua-fragrances.com/?utm_sou ... 86043552d6

SOTD- Bvlgari Pour Homme
There's a few I'd like to try, but even at 25% off, these are a little pricey. I did buy a couple of Alexandria fragrances that I was happy with, but I found a coupon code for 30% off, which made it much better. I'm not sure how much (if any) difference there is between the two in terms of quality, but Alexandria sells 30ml for $40 and 60ml for $60 as their regular price. So even with the 25% off at Dua, you're still paying $5 more than Alexandria. That doesn't matter if they don't have the same fragrance, but for ones that they do have in common, I'd go with Alexandria unless somebody did a comparison and said Dua was the better one.

I'd really like to see a reviewer do a side by side by side comparison. For example, Dua Pomme Trempée vs Alexandria Wasted Moment vs By Killian Apple Brandy.

Anyone tried Dunhill Racing, or know if Armaf Hunter Intense is similar to it? I've tried neither but the hype train for Racing is generating quite some steam in fragcomm

Haven't tried, but was wondering the same.

I got that dua 25% off email a few days ago. Seems like they have that sale every week lol

Been meaning to try black widow but at about $52 USD (including $10 shipping and the discount) I'm just not sure.

I sent them an email asking for samples....told them even with the discount plus shipping to Canada that it was a tad pricey for something I've never tried.

in reality I'm a cheapskate and just want a bigger discount than 25% lol

For those who are interested, the loreal private sale starts today from March 14 to April 8. They have some designer fragrances from Giorgio Armani, Diesel, YSL, Ralph Lauren, and Victor & Rolf.
Here's the RFD thread (they have some pics): loreal-loreal-warehouse-sale-toronto-ma ... #p29062339
I have a 2 free invites to pass out, PM me if interested... once you receive the invite, I think you get 6 invites to pass out so pay it forward :)
Thinking of grabbing a 50ml of Armani Code Ultimate which is my preferred flanker of the Code line....
