I recently made a few purchases.
First off, Serge Lutens Vétiver Oriental, which was available in 50 ml from a discounter.
I also got Aramis Perfume Calligraphy Saffron, which was on sale fairly cheap. This was a blind buy. I have yet to wear it extensively. I was not expecting a whole lot.
Lastly, a retailer on Amazon.com was selling the elusive Shiseido Basala in the edt, so I got it. It smells ok, but I fear it may be a counterfeit. The lettering at the bottom of the bottle ("Eau de Toilette" and "Shiseido") rubbed off almost immediately when I opened the box.
I've been searching for this for years. It's near impossible to find. I think I will give up looking. This is much stronger than the after shave, which I got several years ago. However, it comes across somewhat thinner than I remember it. It does last on my skin fairly long, though.
