Picked a bottle of this up today(along with Noir Extreme) and it’s a beautiful scent. A huge hit of Lavender in the opening but that quickly mellows to a beautifully balanced masculine scent.

Will keep an eye out for when you have some of the Private Blend lines available as would love to try some of them but out of my price range retail.

Burning Rose (details couple of posts back): last call if anyone's interested!
I got 30ml the last tike Pat, I'd go for that or stretch to 50ml if needs be
Just as I'm here...540 rouge is getting low...any shout on the Penhaligons? You were looking but it was pricey?
Let me know when you have some new stuff too .. I'm getting twitchy for new juice Pat

I’d take 50ml, but can take more or less depending on what it takes to make a split work.

Percival: have my eyes out for it but not seeing it at a decent price TBH.

Reflection: if I get a bottle at a respectable price I might stick it in alright.

I was actually about to cancel my reservation for it today as there's only about 20ml allocated. How much would you be after? I'd really need to allocate another 50ml today to make the split viable (I'm not saying that to put pressure on you BTW!) but not sure if you'd be after that much? Process is outlined in the OP but I always give full details by email or PM anyway.

BdJ really is a winner alright. Should have some more Private Blend listed soon!

Another new name Erik?! 540 - might do in a few months unless there's a lot of requests before then. That's the Lord George from Penhaligon's right? I'm actively keeping an eye out but even the cheapest prices are best described as 'saucy', especially given it's only a 75ml bottle. Just think the resultant splits would be a bit rich for Penhaligon's. (I will have a new Penhaligon's though, and very soon at that). Don't worry - I've got a big load of stuff already in hand waiting to go - as soon as I get my lazy ass around to writing the emails etc! During the week hopefully.

OK, that's 80ml requested anyway so I'll see what I can do with it. I usually pick it up in central London - I'm actually in London Monday but not sure I'll be able to get into the store though (and not even sure if it's too late to reserve it at this stage). Great juice though! Does anyone know if the Dublin airport concession does it cheaper than retail? I'm very rarely in Dublin airport though.

Still smell it after several hours compared to spraying it solo.

Definitely a great mixer frag
100% agree with the both of you ! 1 spray of TF Oud Wood and 1 Spray Tobacco Vanille is also a killer Mixture!

Oud Wood is one I only recently tried. Got a tester bottle when I was picking up my 50ml of Tobacco Vanille.
In fact I made sure to get about 4 tester bottles filled to the rim.. gotta get my money's worth

It's fascinating, but I'm not quite ready to drop another €188 just yet!!

Will try that combo tonight.

Hey Pat - just wondering if you are planning on doing a split on oud wood, tuscan leather, soleil blanc or lost cherry?

PS how does the process work for a first timer?

Cheers

Oud Wood: literally just did one - I'm actually splitting it tonight so will probably hold off on another for a while.

Tuscan Leather: yes, and soon!

Soleil Blanc: no particular plans but if enough people ask for it, I'd look at doing it early summer.

Lost Cherry: to my nose, it's simply not worth the money! But again, if enough folks are after it I'm happy to split it.

First post on this thread has details of the process in the 'small print' but of course I always PM / email full details before taking any money.
