Not sure threads can get made into GJ ones anymore since Teddy fucked the site up in pursuit of Adwords cash

Never ever got on with Black Orchid. Very rich and I think too feminine for a man, in my opinion any way. I remember I bought Velvet Orchid when that came out which was a little bit less sickly for me but still too feminine looking back now.

If you search for unboxed you can get some stuff at discount prices.

https://www.penhaligons.com/uk/en/product/article/search?query=UNBOXED

Some good prices there, if only I knew what was good! Have never really looked in any of their stores, always a bit empty, hate going in places like that when I have no intention of buying anything Laughing out loud

yeah exactly the same jacko. What are the FUKknits of Penhaligons? Laughing out loud

FWIW, I love CDG2 and Wonderwood, and wear Tom Ford Grey Vetiver and Aesops Hwyl occasionally

Halfeti and As Sawira are great. There’s a few others but can’t remember off the top of my head. Juniper Sling is really nice too but weak performance.

Edit: I used to be like that with stores but then just decided to do it and ask for anything I wanted to try in regards to samples and stuff. 9 out of 10 times niche stores are happy you are in there, it’s the department stores that don’t give a fuck and don’t want to help you.

Yeah true, always thought Penhaligon was £££ as well, £150+ kinda range but didn't realise they are a lot more affordable than I thought

Just been decanting some Leisure in Paradise. Fuck me what a pain in the arse. Couldn't use the syringe method as theres a bloody lip on the tube so had to spray into something to then syringe into the atomisers. All I can smell is vanilla and coconut now, it goes everywhere! Good job the Mrs loves it Laughing out loud

If anyones interested I have a few more 10ml decants of Leisure in Paradise, £15 posted

You need these:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/233575759688

They just pump the juice out as they are a straight tube. I use them to put juice in my travel atomisers.

What atomisers are you using mate and where did you get them?

The cheaper Penhaligons are normally edt. The more expensive (£178 range) are edp.

Cairo is great too, shame it doesn’t last that long on me, although seems to vary from person to person. As LFC says, sales reps in store are usually pleased to see you, quite helpful and almost certainly will give you samples.

You can also use a small metal funnel.

For those of you who are still interested and asked, these what the the Coccobello decants look like.

Could have done with them LFC! FFS! And a small funnel too.

All LiP decants gone I think, if the folks who have messaged me take them

Should deffo start a new fragrance thread in the GJ section - the majority of input is by GJ's anyway so no-one's gonna miss out.

There's some great knowledge in here combined with the discounts that you're continually sharing Cool

Maybe make this one a scent of the day thread and create the GJ one for everything else?

Can anyone make the new thread, or does it have to be a mod?
