I have hwyl and its really nice. Lasts for ages on me, but still have a soft spot for Wonderwood.

Might get Tacit for next for the summer/work to replace TF's Grey Vetiver

Any good?
I replaced my CDG Wonderwood last Winter with this after having worn the former since it was released. Highly rate it.

Tried it in Brighton last weekend and it is very good. Just ordered some switching from the exact same CDG.

Nice one. Didn’t realise Aesop had opened in Brighton

Yeah it’s a bit of an Aventus clone. For the price though might as well use it for work.

Just received some samples and tried hinoki out first. It's a pleasant smell but can hardly imagine someone wearing this as their daily scent.

I tried the bodywash, 3 different ones, it lathered up nicely but all of them smelled terrible.

One in perticular smelled just like one of those old plastic air freshener with the jelly inside that shrank and dryed up, I ended up binnin it.

Kosmala No.4 yeah? Yeah that’s what happened with me and then the more I use it the more I smell it now.

I pick my daughters up from school from spraying in the morning and they say it’s still strong then and they love it.

Yes very sweet but for me it’s got enough to make it more masculine compared to br540 which my Mrs wears and what it gets compared too.

Proper love it, I’m addicted to the smell. Have to wear it atleast every other day now Laughing out loud One of, if not the best buy of the year for me so far, and I’ve tried tuns this year.
