Didnt care for 4 it at 1st but now im sold

The 1st time I bought this fragrance about a year ago, I took off the top, I smelled it, took a deep breath, exhaled, and said to myself this stuff stinks. And then when it didn't last more than a couple of hours I really didn't like it. After that, it's sat on my shelf for about 9 months just staring at me, begging me to give it another chance, and I said to myself, why not I only wore it once the bottle is really cool I keep hearing really good things about it, so I figured I'd give it another shot. And give it another shot I did. And I wore it about a half a dozen more times. Each time I wore it it got better and better I liked it more and more. The longevity is much better than I realize. I don't know what happened that very first time I put it on. Maybe I was just having a bad day or maybe my mind wasn't with it. All I have to say now is that this stuff is really nice. It lasts all day, the scent is really different maybe that's what I didn't like about it in the beginning. But I gave it another chance and I really really like the smokiness I love the sharpness I love the texture of it. It's different. It may not be for everybody, but I am now a believer. Released in 2015, it is a very good flanker to the original encre Noire. This fragrance is announced as a very masculine, intensive, powerful scent. It has notes of Cypress, Bergamot, Haitian vetiver, incense, orris, benzoin, sandalwood, and patchouli. Put that all together and you have a really Kick-Ass fragrance that is not for everyone but only for the mature gentleman who's not afraid to be different or to take a chance. And the price isn't too bad either. This just goes to show that you can't rush into a decision especially when it comes to a fragrance. I am so glad I didn't sell it or throw it away or give it away. I will say right from the start that this is really good and I did not see it coming as it is something unique and have never smelled anything quite like it before. People who appreciate musk, Woody, dry, linear fragrances will most likely see how unique this really is. However there are going to be plenty of people who don't like it but that's their problem and they have a right to feel that way. That's why when you wear a fragrance you wear it because you like it it's for you nobody else but you. I really am blown away by this fragrance and it just might be in the top five but I need a little bit more time because I have a lot of fragrances in my Arsenal.

Canoe (1996) (Eau de Toilette) - Dana

Canoe (1996) (Eau de Toilette) Totally different than the original
I don't know where Parfumo found the notes in this fragrance but i think they're totally wrong. Obviously it's a mistake i hope. This stuff is ok. The makeup of the fragrance is nothing to write home about. Get the eau de toilette...

Acqua Classica - Borsari 1870

Acqua Classica Mid century fougere
Opens with a bitter petitgrain supported by a spicy lavender. Then it will slowly morph into a soapy Woody base with a noticeable presence of a stunning greenish oakmoss note. A work of art to say the least. Also what is most noteworthy is the duality...
