    It is getting REALLY hard to keep up with all the Very Irresistable flankers. I don’t think I ever even saw the Winter one, which I found marginally interesting and wanted to try.

    • Robin says:

      The L’Intense is just out on counters, I think. It really is all too much.

  2. Merlin says:

    Irresistable? Hardly.

    • Robin says:

      Lots of people must love it, they sure make enough of it.

      • ol rait says:

        I was once told that Macy’s sells two bottles of it per bottle of anything else back in 200…6…? The SA said it like it was a plus. :/

  3. Lucy says:

    Pink cocktail, saffron, and leather sound like a hot mess to me. I will go out of my way to sniff it though – they get points from me just for using saffron.
    I’m guessing the Paul Smith will be too expensive to buy just for the bottle. It’s very pretty.

  4. Olfacto the Magnificent says:

    sounds awesome!

  5. AmyT says:

    The Joop strikes me as kinda hilarious, since my late father used to wear the original, and he never, ever wore pink.

  6. Racine says:

    Err British summer morning? Has anyone heard of a British summer at all? ;)

    • Mary says:

      a friend of mine is as we speak in Londen and the weather is great!! Our holidays in the last couple of years in England have always been quite nice. And we have been from Scotland to Devon. I love England!!
      to me better than the Spanish beaches, although the beach near Barcelona was very nice. But about the summer flankers: too much.

      • Joe says:

        I thought the Spanish beaches *were* like going to England for the summer. Benidorm… ack…

  7. Ada says:

    Is that Joop even real? It looks fake with those pictures and strange fonts.

    • Robin says:

      I don’t know if it’s a “real” picture of the “real” product, but it is official — it’s also on the Coty Press website.

      • eminere says:

        If it’s the finished bottle, it looks really tacky.
