Nice one snaye. Will have to check that out. Ended up getting a 50ml bottle of Perfumer H's RainWood and got a bunch of samples. Ink and Tobacco are nice too.

Best fresh fragrance about for me.

Which brings me on to another grapefruit fragrance:

If anyone’s Harrods way and can get me a sample of Ormonde Jayne Montabaco Verano (you will have to pay if they have any), I’ll be happy to pay for your time.

I’ve never tried any Byredo’s mate. The one I do want to try though is Sundazed.

I like BDA but as Nigel Benn says the performance on them is not great. Also like there Oud Immortal as well.

Sundazed is lovely, if a little bit feminine. Very clean citrus, a little soapy with almost a cotton candy dry down.

Bal d’Afrique is nicer imho.

Yeah wasn’t sure whether it would lean to feminine with that note. I’m a big br540 lover so could be ok but if longevity is a bit shit then it would be a pass.

Been loving Amber Royal by Ormonde Jayne this last week.

Got some thomas kosmala samples of tonic vert, tonic blanc and apres l'amour. Found tonic blanc pretty much a carbon copy of petit matin and apres l'amour largely similar to br540. Tonic vert seemed like a nice old school barbershop fragrance though nothing special.

For a cheaper alternative to more expensive fragrance I’ve found Eden to be really good. £24 for 50ml, the Virgin Island Water and BR540 they do is really good which are the ones I’ve tried.

Got this in the Harrods 10% off as it’s an exclusive for there. Nothing but compliments so far and long lasting. Thomas Kosmala No.4


cheers for the recommendation. been using a sample of BR540 and I like it, but maybe slightly too feminine. picked this up today and it's great.

not a reason to buy it, but never worn a fragrance that gets so many (positive) comments

Ubercool Probably the buy of the year for me. I’ve had strangers tapping me asking what it is when worn so I get this.

This. Picked up a decant from the Fragheads FB group and never had more compliments about it. Great scent and lasts. Of all the recent ones I’ve tried first one I’m considering dropping the coin on.

Tried copper recently and wasn't much of a fan. Wounderoud is very nice but couldn't justify it when I have most of a bottle of wonderwood still.

Anywhere in UK do that Thomas Kosmala except Harrods? Intrigued
