Some Yohji Yamamoto stuff on TKMaxx. I think the gift sets are better value.

Been waiting for decent prices.

Widian Liwa is God level smelling to me.

Ormonde Jayne had 20% off and will be having 25% off for Black Friday for anyone interested. These two are my favourites and both so nice.

Facebook group. I was guna buy it from Harvey Nichols with the 15% off then someone offered me one so all good.


Went testing today at Pulse of Perfumery in Knutsford. Bois 1920 Oro Rosso was the standout for me today, would be good for both male and female wear. All the Initio’s are great. I have Oud for Greatness and it’s so good.

Nope, but feel I could probably blind buy every CDG scent and I'd be happy. Speaking of which, another colab with Monocle:

Really liked Hinoki and Sugi.

Recently sampled Leather and Rain Wood from Perfumer H. Leather has this quite talcy start to it, but really smells good after a minute or so. Woody leather is a shit description I know, but it feels quality. Rain Wood is the best post-rain smell I've sampled.

Tried some MFK fragrances today, really liked satin oud, petit matin and gold fluidity. Can't justify the $$$ sadly

Quite fancy a gym bag beater and I read that Cool Water is a decent clone of Green Irish Tweed. Can anyone confirm?

Out of interest is there anyone on here who only wears one fragrance? Or possibly just one in spring/summer and one in autumn/winter?

That's me, just two, AW and SS. And I also stick to the same ones for a good while before switching to something else

Not tried Wonderwood. Got Wonderoud though which is nice. On a side note just found a 3/4 bottle of L'eau de navigateur by L'Artisan Parfumeur. Very Christmassy.
