A club that exceeded my expectations
I was very curious about this club that according to reviews, boasted close comparisons with Noir de Noir. So I joined a bid and won a bottle. Btw, I owned a decant of NdN.
Once I got hold of this Club I went back at work and tried a couple of sprays. In a few seconds, I was engulfed or should I say hugged by a wonderful smell that this for me, contrary from other review, is a thicker TF Noir de Noir. The radius of aroma expanded so fast that even those around me can smell it and liked it. A huge surprise of fragrance explosion for only two sprays.

The rose is the angry leader right of the bat while geranium and saffron is holding it's temper to add some smoothness. This top experience is glorious.. majestic. An "attraction" stage, an impressionist, a presence to be noticed.

Few minutes later, nutmeg and pepper gets involved, expressing sensuality, mystery, bittersweet masculine side and a haunting dark embrace. The rose stays afloat and with violet and geranium, they played with grace to add a feminine tone. Surprisingly, I can smell vibe of patchouli in some moments. This middle stage is very inviting, a fragrance fit for both sexes up to it's end stage.

On the base, Club de Nuit has maintained the vague character of the top but the middle stage is still evident. Truly an essence of attraction, a cloud that never cease to invite and captivate.

With it's bittersweet comfort within it's elegance, the dry down seems like a never ending wonderful journey of a comfy sexy and delicious woody (oud) gourmand (vanilla), blending beautifully with patchouli and amber. These blend is whirling like fairy dusts atop a whispering floral spirit (rose).

Club de Nuit Intense for Women is playful and creative. There is an impression that pops up once in a while that reminded me of Montale Intense Café and Mancera Roses Vanille over dry down. This was an observation that I never experience with full wearing/s of Tom Ford Noir de Noir.

In my personal subjective comparison, I noticed that Club de Nuit was "slightly" dirtier and a tad "heavier" on top stage. More dusty and quite milky on middle and base, respectively.

TF NdN in all three stages was more founded, thinner yet more airy and highly refined. But both perfumes are tempting, inviting and comforting with sophistication. Both perfumes with their performances are ambitious, outstanding, almost blend for perfection, in all it's corners, be it sprayed on skin or on clothes.

Final thoughts, Club de Nuit Intense on a very tight margin, beats TF Noir de Noir on it's thicker scent cloud, playfulness and potency, throughout my scent journey. Tom Ford Noir de Noir beats Club de Nuit Intense on a very tight margin, with it's quality and refinement.

These comparisons cannot be traced easily, it took me hours of close observation, side by side. But again, my observation should be taken subjectively.

On price comparison, it is obvious, go for Club de Nuit Intense for Women.

Catastrophe is a graceful symphony
Two years has passed since I bought a miniature.
With much love, I bought a 100ml bottle within that week. Why? Simply because it is better than some of the high end niche oud based perfumes I tried.
Have I regretted a single moment while wearing or even sniffing FEO? No! Do I ever get a negative feedback from people around me while wearing it? No! Do I get constant compliments? Yes! Do I get the comfort, confidence and good feeling? Yes!
Ferrari EO is quite bold and potent on it's introduction, a rebelling-bitter slightly cloying floral (to those with sensitive nose), thickly mad resins and dusty spices with hidden sweetness to control it's total outrage. When you get pass this early phase, the heart Is like wonderful seismic tremors, heat combusting, smoke rises up, tempting darkness fills the air yet the end is not near. The magical mystery unfolds. Aftershock lasted many hours like an endless freight train. But do not get me wrong, the wave is graceful and gracious. Divine shockwaves of majestic leather, balmy woods and aoud, embracing whiffs of roses and sensually soft labdanum kept me hooked Ferrari EO.
If this is a Dior, Chanel, Xerjoff, MFK and ByKilian release, this will receive highest praise. To those who didn't like Ferrari EO, that is your nose and I stick with my positive thoughts, then and now. Amazing results await for the right skin. 9.5/10

An Ode to Suede
Less complex, non heady, suede, kinda wet yet smooth. Erotic, sensual and magnetic. Projection is average while longevity (close to skin stage is amazing) is fantastic, even on clothes. From cold evenings, fall, winter and rainy days (as good as NR for Men) this will rock. As per compliments, men and women gave high remarks. The scent is unique, the occasions to wear it varies depending on the number of sprays. From formal, date, intimate moments, work and even outdoors. When it's windy, it captures the attention in a very good way just like Paco Rabanne Ultrared Man. I wear frags whether for men or women and BV played good on my skin. The harmony between patchouli and leather with some pepper vibe up to the heart and a bit of oakmoss to complete this wonderful music in the air is simply comforting, charming and sensual. I detect no milky, metallic or animalic smell on it. Let me get it straight, if this smells awful on me, why would three of my girl friends wants to buy this from me? It happened at my old job, Christmas dinner and new job. Last Valentine's day, another brunette friend asked me if she can come to my place and choose her night perfume before we attended a party. She picked this, four sprays and she earned many beautiful comments from both men and women. BV matched our skins. I decided to decant some for her. Try if it works on you.

Safe, easy, supple, sexy, groovy...
For beginners who wants to try a decent perfume with oud and leather. For men who may want to impress girls on a night out. For men who are dedicated to smell great at work and wouldn't want to offend workmates with "you smell different and nauseating" perfume. For women who love to explore men's fragrances. This is for you.

Versace pour Homme Oud Noir scent is one of the softest oud and leather based perfumes I have worn. A mild oud and leather combination well blended with oriental woody notes that toned town the usual might and heady characters of oud and leather. Smooth sweetness, quite bitter, a touch of creaminess and warm from the spice notes. No animalic note detected on my skin, which is good. If there is a dirty musk, for sure it was well hidden and behaved. Projection and longevity is average. But first hour of wearing it, 4 sprays, you will definitely be noticed. 5 hours later, close to skin. Safe to wear on parties, work (2-3 sprays) and dates. Sensual? Yes. Unique? No.

I can see the comparisons with Versace Man (heart to dry down) closer than Tom Ford Oud Wood (top stage). Oud Noir also reminded me of MFK Oud, which is less sweet and a bit thicker in oud. I prefer Oud Noir on summer nights and fall seasons. I prefer MFK Oud and Oud Wood on winter. Over all, I prefer Versace Man, still.

Versace Oud Noir is for me, the Versace Man lightly added with oud and spices. Both amazing, high quality smell (imo) and yes, full bottle worthy.

The Anointed One
Aromatic Elixir is not only limited for old ladies. It can be worn even by young adults. You only need to be patient to experience its wonderful revelation, that is if you treat AE with utmost respect, care and blend with it perfectly.

AE blooms its goddess character half an hour and only when applied with a couple of spritz to 1 spray. For a woman who will smell like a top executive. For a woman who walks the streets on a cold day and night to turn to her men's attention. For an intimate woman ready for her secret moment with her man. For a daring yet very smart woman, anywhere she goes. For a confident man, with the right skin chemistry to AE. Men who are tired of conventional fresh aquatic/marine fruity synthetic based scents but will be noticed by women. AE grants class, seduction and sophistication. Many will regret, will be dismayed and will fail to bring out the alluring and tempting deity in AE for only a few can trigger its beauty. To those who fail, no matter what you do, your skin will never make it sensually ignite. AE is too picky of it's wearers. So test it on you for some hours before you buy.

AE is often misunderstood until/unless you have been chosen. AE is liquid gold to the anointed.
