"The licorice here is warm and woody, as opposed to fresh like the original. It makes the experience slightly less gourmand. In fact, the licorice here is almost inedible, and a little bit dangerous, like a beautiful dark poison."
Thanks frostiblack.... that was a perfect description.
Yes, this is far less 'sweet shop'. The oud turns this into something mystical and just downright sexy. I've only worn this one a couple of times, have not tested it on the ladies yet. I have a feeling it could be a real winner in that department though. This is definitely far more manly compared to the original and the other flankers.
Fast becoming one of my all time favourites. I had to work to track this down, and found it on a french online store. Conversing with the owner in broken google-translator french was totally worth the time, effort and money.
