Cheers Mura

If people had to choose between CDG Kyoto or CDG Hinoki. Which one would they go for? I like both, but only want one for now.

Kyoto wins hands down in my opinion but get both from DSM before they run out and end up going for a fortune on ebay

What's all this partially encrypted bollocks on the DSM website. Anyone had problems ordering online with them?

Just keeps asking if I want to show unsecure data and that just happens to be the credit card fields. Tried it on IE and FF.

Serge Lutens is a really nice niche fragrance house if you want to start looking into those

Will definately look into it, cheers… Heard a bit about Russian fragrances, that they're good but know even less (i.e., nothing) about this…

Its one of my favourites, I think it smells beautiful. The sillage is poor but the combination of notes is masterful, IMO;



* Top Notes
Bergamot, Violet Leaves.


Middle Notes
* Pimento, Black Tea, Cinnamon.


Base Notes
* Tobacco Leaves, Musk, Myrrh, Olive Wood.

I wear Marc Jacobs and i was in the market for a 2nd aftershave.

dilemma…

I fancied trying CDG 2man or Tom Ford, as my 2nd fragrance

I've been told I can get 30% Off Tom Ford if i buy today from Space NK.

They don't sell CDG 2man…

What should I do?

I can always get another 125ml of MJ with 30% off too?????

agggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Marti,

I'd go for CdG 2 (not man) personally always gets a good reaction, but the other two (MJ & TF) are in my current top five. But it's all down to personal preference really.

How are you getting 30% off at space as well, could come in handy for xmas presents?
