    I've been waiting for this to arrive for some time. Never used, still wrapped, and with some handy instructions. I don't know that I will use this either. I will have a proper inspection tomorrow. It cost more than the original 5 shillings but less than it might have done as it was poorly listed in antiques.

    Thanks @UKSteve for a 1.5 megabyte, 3024 x 4032 pixel image of a box. I now understand why people complain about images not being resized.

    Adding the 'l' makes all the difference, now I can see what the fuss is about!

    That looks to be an interesting line of parfums @UKSteve - http://rojaparfums.com/

    If you add IPhone to Pocket pics become a reasonable size.

    Maybe not a cost effective solution... battery will be flat.

    Honestly @UKSteve , I enjoy your posts, but if that's the attitude you're going to take after other users have mentioned the exact same thing, done.
    Roja Dove Perfumes are meant to be good and I still have yet to try his line. However the pricing puts me off, $315US for 50ml.
    I do have a sample of Puredistance M which is created by him, ($590US for 100ml) which I'll bring to the next Canberra meet I attend.

    This is the only forum I post on where I have to alter any pics, I have remembered with a few, slipped my mind with others. If people are going to get sad faces over it then they can block my posts and turn that frown upside down. Easy.

    The Roja have top quality ingredients. Yes they are expensive, prohibitively so for most, particularly if you are not really into fragrances. This Danger is a cheap one, his Oud release this week is £1450 a bottle, way out of my league. That contains 2 different Ouds that are 50 years old.

    They look amazing @Rami congratulations.

    On a side note it is interesting that they were willing to ship them direct to you in Australia. I had an issue with a brush I purchased and that is when Brad decided that he no longer ships outside of the US. He refused to replace the faulty brush based on this. He did provide other options (one of which I accepted after some haggling) but I felt that the refusal to make a replacement was poor.

    I actually provided the blanks. They are aussie timbers so not sure if the same reasons apply.

    However I may know what may be off with yours, I think.

    I was told shipping OS was too expensive when dealing with defective brushes etc.

    Oh come on, we're descendants of whinging Poms, what do you expect :p

    Seriously though, I've a 31.5" screen and they're still too large to fully display upon that.
    The browsers I've tried don't automatically scale them down either and I don't think the forum software is able to do that as it can with other sites.
    It is appreciated that you're making an effort to ensure what you share, is able to be fully appreciated by other members, as you've an amazing ever growing collection, that many would rightfully be jealous of :)

    Let me guess, there's a special on for Sabbatical members too, yet only until the end of the month? ;)

    NSR as I'm out when it comes to posting monthly acquisitions, but this entry level DSLR came along at the right price.

    I just could not resist taking a picture of it with my Nexus phone camera either ;)
