More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US.

The scent, Fumus, captures the dark and intense fragrance of birch, combined with bright notes of orange leaves and […] Continue reading
