Many blogs are doing recaps on what has been released, what are the best releases of the year, etc. I have only smelled one 2012 release (Amouage Interlude for women). This past year has been marked with trying to get back up bottles of Chanel no. 5 and no. 19 in edp form. What did not help is that this summer was marked with extreme heat and the only thing I could tolerate was Chanel no. 19. So I wasn't as motivated to try anything "new". For me, new doesn't always mean that it wasn't released in the past two years, it can be called new to me.
