    thank you to the op i have received mine, smell totally like the originals just not sure how much to put on.

    I have found that you can roll the bottle on quite a few times but not that much comes out. It is obviously quite thick. I have used my Beyond Paradise a few times and the bottle looks as full as when it arrived. I think you can be as generous as you like and at those prices why not?

    I think they must be having problems with the billing. I ordere just 3 small samples total £6.75 I chose to pay via Paypal. I got 2 invoices from them, one for the correct amount and another for £26!!!!!!!! :cool: somethings amiss here, and it was not a repeated order by the way.
    I have emailed them so will hopefully hear from them soon

    Got JPG Original for women in the post, and D&G Pour Homme. Never tried JPG, but it smells lush on and the D&G is identical! Just gone back and ordered some smaller sizes so I can put them in various handbags - Lacoste touch of pink and Red delicious by DKNY!

    Can anyone tell me if there are any perfumes out there that are like Lancone Aromatonic (green bottle). I love it but it has been discontinued and since I'm allergic to most fragrances I'm distraught!!

    Not exactly a 'smellalike' but a good friend of mine is into bpal -

    It's all different sorts of amps that you can mix to create your own perfume/ready made ones with forums that you can swap etc if you get one you don't like/want to try some without buying another one and they really last.

    And the descriptions of some are so beautiful:
    The ghostly White Women of the Scottish highlands. They seduce unwary travelers by night with their unearthly beauty and mesmerizing dancing. They engage their victims in a wild, hypnotic dance, and once they reach exhaustion, exsanguinate their partners with their vampiric kiss. Grapefruit, white tea, apple blossom and ginger.

    ETA: The main site is in the US as are some of the swapee's so it does mean you post out to/get post in from the USA etc

    Finally got around to ordering some of these yesterday (once I had found the thread again). Paid by google checkout and they arrived today and are fabulous - the Emporio Armani smells just like the real thing! The presentation of the oils is top notch too. I'll definitely be ordering more!
