CDG2, 888, Kyoto, Avignon > CDG2MAN Wonderwood & Amazingreen all day long

CDG2 and 888 are hard to beat as both are fairly unique scents
CDG2 Man is good but oustshone by a couple of the incense series (Kyoto being my favourite)
Wonderwood is just meh there are just much better woody fragrances for the money
same goes for amazing green… better vetiver fragrances out there

Have gotten the most compliments on the 888, the best one imo

Did anyone order anything from the Hanon sale? I ordered on the 23rd and my order hasn't been updated since. Tried calling but they must be shut for New Year.

888 dries down brilliantly after initial overwhelming notes, love it!

@Shame i'm wearing Tam Dao by Diptyque as my current woody scent, lots of positive feedback
if you want to drop some cash though, go for this

Yeah, I did but nothing as yet - only ordered on the 26th I think. It's Hanon though, so I was going to wait til next June before chasing them up.

Placed a fairly big order with an online store the other day and its just closed until tomorrow for the Sale. What do you lot say to the store to see if they will honour the sale prices before it actually hits the sale? Never happened to me before.

If you ask they should do. Otherwise, order the same items tomorrow and return the first order at full price.

Why would you order anything that's full-price at this time of year?

You should've waited it out, considering that you know we're in the sales period now.

Well done captain ringpiece. Its from a Japanese site (no proxy needed) and i asked Jake about JP sales and he said that they don't have them the same as the UK, there is no definite sales period and couldn't be sure when the site went on sale or if they even would online. So wanting to actually wear the stuff in winter and not hang around I ordered and then an email came through yesterday saying sale starts on the first. I'm not that bothered as its still cheaper than any UK order for the same items and some of it isnt available here anyway, just if they do honour it would be a bonus.
