Ugh. Fuck me sideways. Nope.
The 'bros' are gonna lap it up like it's water from the holy grail. The new aventus panty dropper? Sigh...

My puny lavender
My well hidden jasmine
My synthetic vanillin
My nauseating ethyl maltol
My parody of luxury
In two words... Mon Guerlain.

Rather good for yet another wannabe rose-oud. Slightly fruity, subtle cumin and lovely ambratic drydown. More refined than most iterations.

Takes time to fall in love with the most incredible chypre ever made,but when you do is forever. Natural oakmoss comes with a price though..

Retro chypre on its halfway to decay with dirty animal waves and sour gasoline rose. Just a bad odor with no excuses.

Sauvage gives me a headache. This doesn't. That's why I'm down with LRC - it's smoother, with less pepper and more lavender. Juuuust right.

Acqua di Gio is one of my all time favourites, and this clone is very good, citrus, fresh, light, clean, and crisp, best for warmer seasons

Release the genie in the wrong moment and it can be dreadful. But, right moment and Angel is a great dirty chocolate patch, sugarless, raw.

Warm slightly spiced supple leather. Shockingly good compared to most releases.

Original edt; the oriental to end all orientals. Mysterious, hallucinogenic, erotic; resinous spices, carnations, lust. Flowers of fire.

The lavender and tonka is nice, but it has a weird, almost sour-ish opening that could turn people off. 1 hour later, it's peppery goodness.

What once was a unique character has been finally drowned in a painful mainstream tragedy. What a pity, Zoologist, what a pity indeed.

40yrs old smell of stale cigarettes smoke and ash "infused" in thick velvet curtains and sofas in a room with windows that never opened. ❤❤❤

Karagueuzoglou, Flipo and Ropion need to pay their bills too.
This may explain why such great perfumers have created such a vile thing.

Quintessentialy 80's; dark, goth, plummy tuberose, dressed in lamé, incense burning in the corner, smoking menthol cigarettes. Total diva/o.

If mathematic is not an opinion, the equation (Cuir Vetiver by Ives Roches + Encrè Noir by Lalique) = Wild Forest by Armand Basi is correct!
Holy Grail of smoky and incensy perfumes. Masculine, mysterious and astonishingly wearable at the same time. On of my all time favourites.
