Cheers dude!

...........................................................................................

Will post an updated list of what's left tomorrow I'd say. If anyone is looking for anything else before Christmas, get yizzer requests in soon! Pretty much full up for boxes going out next week and the following week. Last deliveries week of 16th December but if you're stuck let me know!

Already have a selection of heavy hitters lined up for the New Year, and the Revolut card is preparing to take a battering on Black Friday. Expect to see listings of brand new releases from Parfums de Marly and Acqua di Parma, as well as unlisted stuff from Amouage and Penhaglion's, plus first time for some Bond No 9.......and even some Irish fragrances begorrah! Plus a red hot cult favourite handmade using quasi illegal ingredients by a man who looks like Borat!

Thinking of shaking up the format a bit too and going with a two monthly (or even monthly) smaller list of new stuff.

No current plans. Considering getting Creed Spring Flower in alright, probably after New Year though.

All gone I'm afraid.......however, believe it or not you're the second person to ask for one this morning so maybe there's some more interest? If so, I'll get another 250ml in - but let me know quick! Packages from France are very slow at the moment so it's pretty tight to get it in, split, and shipped out in time for Christmas. It'd be €90 for 50ml (RRP for a retail 50ml bottle is €220).

Creed Viking - 50ml €90.

I'm actually wearing Viking today - bloody hell it's good! Rate it higher than Aventus personally, especially in colder weather.

Hey Pat, I'm definitely interested in a 50ml of viking, but there's no crazy rush on it, it's for myself - but whenever you get it in I am up for it before xmas, after xmas.. it's all good.

Same for wood and spice (at some stage next year hopefully!).

Cheers!

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

CREED


Viking *open split*
Already have a couple of bottles of this gone, hoping to do another 250ml. More mature than its famous sibling Aventus, this is a warming mix of woods and spices. Effortlessly wearable in all situations (office included), this is preferred by some (myself included) over its big brother. RRP €220 / 50ml.
€90 for 50ml. Three slots available.

................................................................................................................


TOM FORD


Soleil Neige *open split*
Brand new from Tom Ford. "Soleil Neige is the bright side of Soleil, a polar expression to Soleil Blanc’s solar floral. Radiant with winter light, the scent mimics the shimmer of sun on snow." With notes of bergamot, carrot seed and jasmine, the new Private Blend Soleil Neige Eau de Parfum is a citral-floral-musk scent. RRP €188.
Note 1: this is listed as unisex but I suspect leans feminine.
Note 2: move quick! To get this price, I have to order the decanter by tomorrow Friday 29th!

€47 for 20ml (plastic), €58 for 25ml or €107 for 50ml.
................................................................................................................


LUBIN


Akkad *in hand*
Amber, olibanum, elemi, styrax, labdanum, clary sage – this sounds like it’d be right at home in the lineup of Amouage or Xerjoff. And those are good reference points – Akkad is an eastern style warm spicy amber. Very high quality and a safe unisex. I gave this an all day run recently and it really is very good - couldn't stop smelling my wrist! Very high Fragrantica rating at 4.42 / 5. Some reviews:

"Amazing amber! Most incredible dry down of a fragrance ever! Deliciously addictive sticky resinous amber accord with a powdery vanilla. It has an airy aromatic opening with the mandarin, bergamot, cardamom and clary sage."

"The best amber scent I have ever smelled. Cuts thru the cold air like a knife. When I wear this I know that no one smells better."

"Sensual, perfectly unisex with moderate sillage and projection, the fragrance slowly and very surreptitiously evolves on your skin. A true triumph of modern perfumery."

"Smokey,spicey with some sweetness. This smells exactly how it should. Deep,rich and warm. The complexity outshines any of the CDG Incense Series scents IMO. Majority of the notes are detected and this is easier to wear. Much more of a cold weather scent that is versatile enough for women and men, day or night. Performance is excellent."

€20 for 10ml, €37.50 for 20ml, €55 for 30ml or €84 for 50ml. 50ml portion comes in attractive original 100ml bottle and box.

................................................................................................................



NASOMATTO


Pardon *in hand*
I’ve been asked to feature Nasomatto plenty of times.....so here you are! Pardon is perhaps their best, with dark chocolate leading the charge, supported by oud, sandalwood, sweet tonka and spices. Another extrait so super performance. Nasomatto only sell in 30ml bottles (but still at a high price!) so I’m splitting this a bit differently to usual. I’ve stuck 1ml volumes into sample tubes (plain label) for the bargain price of €5.50 – these are only available as an add on to another order. RRP €124 / 30ml
€5.50 for 1ml Add on to other order only - plastic sample bottle and plain label. Three left.

................................................................................................................


MANCERA


Royal Vanilla *in hand*
Opens with soft, warm vanilla before toughening up with patchouli and amber. Being a Mancera, performance is guaranteed. A cosy winter scent.
€13 for 10ml, €24 for 20ml, €34 for 30ml, or €48 for 50ml. 50ml portion comes in original 120ml bottle and box.



Cedrat Boise *in hand*
Mancera's Aventus alternative. Obvious comparisons with the Creed here, but this is a bit thicker and jammier. Cheaper too!
€12.50 for 10ml, €23 for 20ml, €32.50 for 30ml, or or €49 for 60ml. 60ml portion comes in original 120ml bottle and box.


................................................................................................................


ROJA PARFUMS


Enigma Parfum Cologne *in hand*
Shrouded in a swirl of Cognac and Tobacco, a suave figure sits cool and composed at the bar of a private members’ club - where the scent of Woods and Leather pervade. Dressed in a way that defies the club rules, this alluring presence is definitely unexpected. Why is he here? How did he get in? You cannot take your eye off this mysterious man. Warm touches of spice blend with soft Vanilla and Benzoin, which create a sense of ambiguity - nothing is quite what it seems.”. Roja have released several of their most popular scents in a new 'parfum cologne' concentration - these appear to be replacing the current eaux de parfums so presumably are around that strength. Reports on Enigma PC suggest it's a slightly fresher take than the original, and longevity is good. What's for sure though is that it is a LOT cheaper than the shockingly expensive extrait.
€33 for 7.5ml official glass travel atomiser (boxed). One only! RRP €46+.
................................................................................................................


BERDOUES


Arz E-Rab *in hand*
A bit of belter from under the radar brand Berdoues. Notes for this list cedar, ginger and iris. I get the first two but not the iris - seems to be a good dash of lemon and pepper in there too. Pushing more towards Spring material here, but for the price this is really very good and a pretty safe wear.
€12 for 10ml, €22 for 20ml, €31.50 for 30ml, or €42.50 for 50ml. 50ml portion comes in original 100ml bottle and box.
