I gotta do my stupid Xmas wishlist so my brother and sister in law can buy me something. I picked a few scents that I like, but I guess it will depend on whether they are shopping Amazon or in-store this year. I went with:

Acqua di Parma Oud, Mancera Aoud Vanille and Valentino Yellow Dream.

Open to other suggestions though.

How much are they trying to spend? Some of those are pricey.

Saks is having a good sale of anyone is interested in splitting something.
Thanks. I’ll wait till after Xmas to get anything new.

I added this one to my list. Not my favorite, but the musk and sandalwood is a nice change from all the ouds and spices.

Let me know what you think of the byredo sample. I was excited for it but thought it ended up being a bit of a letdown.
Yeh, it’s a bit too sweet for me. I don’t hate it in very small amounts, but it’s not one that I’d buy.

Tried out the new Hermes H24 EdP. It’s a stark improvement from the EdT. Almost 8 hours later and I still smell it on my skin and it’s gotten good reviews so far. Need another trial or two but this one might be a winner.

There’s also a new version of Hermes Terre d’Hermes called Eau Givree. Got a sample to take home and it smelled very impressive on the sample card.

I got a sample of this one and Mrs Dropbear likes it. Kinda sweet and earthy. It’s not my favorite, but I like it - not overpowering and suitable for day wear.

Amouage has two new scents coming out.

Tried out Amouage Interlude Black Iris. Very odd scent. On one arm I smelled vanilla and powder. On the other arm it was a mossy woods smoky scent. I liked the mossy arm. The other arm smelled like shit. Not sure what to make of that but if it was the latter it would definitely be worth trying again.
