The sample I got of Terre D'hermes is still going strong, this stuff just clings to you, likeing it more every time I wear it too.

Think a lot of places are giving it away at 5/10ml samples. Definitely worth a try.

Popped into town for a bit and some decent reductions on gift box sets to be had.
House of Fraser had the Terres De Hermes gift box at £35 which i think included a 50ml bottle of the stuff.

Mens & Ladies Prada around £30
8 88 was down a touch as well
No reduction on any Chanel though

i got a prada sample with my 8 88 and i really like it.

i love the smell of 8 88 when its been on a while, like if you smell it on a jumper you've had on previously… its a wee bit strong early on.

I know I'm probably stating the obvious but some scents smell good on one person but terrible on another, it's about body chemistry etc etc

My favourite was Hugo Boss Bellissimo - subtle and spicy, always got lot of compliments - but it's been discontinued Sad
At the moment I've got:

1. Tom Ford - maybe it's my poor sense of smell, but seems a little weak? Not bad though, everyone seems to love it.
2. Versace Blue Jeans - Definitely an acquired taste, a little sweet but I really like it. Also very cheap now.
3. Polo - Old skool and dated maybe, but I like it.
4. Chanel Allure - Smells good on some people, terrible on others.

Chanel no 5 is a female fragrance that can be worn by men, it's kind of unisex.

i got that bellismo as well limey, that is so under-rated….and im also the same as you about tom ford, i can never smell anything on me when i put it on…i like the stronger smells, so people can feel me walk in the room.

Bit of a cheeky monkey favour to ask , if anyone is going to Harrods or Selfs could you please check the smelly departments to see if either stocks Tom Ford Private Blends Tobacco Vanille and maybe a pick upsie depending on price

i got a sample of something called zafferano - orodi and i love it, smells like a bunch of roses when its fresh on and a bit femenine but after a while its lovely and i can't stop sniffing it.

"Line my coffin in this scent, its roses and saffron are heavenly, and maybe that's not where i was slated to go. An offering to the gods of perfume"

That guy needs a mega no homo.
