It appears that a few nostrils require a serious overhaul or something of the kind.....No "Collision" going on here.
Just Utter Rapture.......
Zeste Mandarine is of my top Creeds....No Question. There are several comments regarding it as short lived, weak... what have you. No problems here, sticks around for the duration giving off it's magical trail. It'll always remain fav.
Metallic, clean and very casual. Love the stuff. Great in the sweltering dog days of Summer. My latest acquisition in some time frankly. My only gripe is that the bottle's shape (which is very appealing on the dresser for sure) is very awkward and difficult to aim. Made for dropping......
Me likes. Not "Purple Label like" mind you, but like none the less. A Clean Formal right down the middle. I wouldn't know iced mango if it booted me on the chin, but there is a fruit element floating around in BL. the patchouli is not present to harsh levels---just right, and the tonka bean provides good body. Overall, I don't have buyers remorse with Black. I needed another versitile formal.
I absolutely do not regret this purchase in any way, shape or form. What a class act. All the way from the clean blackberry opening right down to the luxurious mahogany and suede finale. Very, very nice Ralphie............
That is absolutely a right on the money statement regarding Safari. It MUST be worn to receive the full effect. Warm, savory and exceptionally masculine. Hands down, the Lauren I most frequently recommend to other gents. Polo Crest is Ralphs second greatest success. Both are highly "attracting".
Awesome. Like walnut pancakes in a downtown cafe. This is one luxurious gourmond.
Very, VVeeery similar to Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet with bracing pine and spices. Not a negative quality at all mind you. Very Clean...
What we're "talking about"....... is an excellent mixture of citrus and spice with a musky edge. A Kouros like start, but that melts away soon enough. very nice.
Similar to Creed's Imperial (hardly a bad quality right out the gate), but with an orange-like edge to make it a plausible acquisition......and I did. Very "multifunctional"
Spactacular ! Love this one. Total agreement to all the feedback given here. Warm, inviting and romantic. Yet at the same time, subtle in way that defies description. A must have.
Utter class and a wonderful addition to my spread. Very, very smooth and warm. Awesome indeed.
On ledge with GdP. It can be spicy and savory if in the mood to behave, or it'll kick you in the posterior and become downright hideous. For once, I'm stumped on a scent.
My crown jewel of citruses. Formal, charming and possesses amazing development. Have the EDT, want to advance to the EDP next. No doubt a striking experience..........
I've waited to possess this charmer for forever and a day. It is an ingeniously constructed multi-layered, slightly powdery, brooding vetiver with a tantalizing chocolate edge. Very, very classy and unusual.
Newly released as I type. I get heavy oak-bark, tonka bean and rum. Advertised as unisex but it skews more into the masculine direction. Very Pleasant
I enjoy KM's Santal very much, but this has more gusto. Deep absinthe, spices, vanilla and musk break down and blend in like silk. Suffice to say, it has my undivided attention.
My favorite of this series. A less obtrusive, stark incense, very comforting and meditative. The others have their own unique qualities obviously, but some are just a tad TO unique. Zagorsk is also quite pleasant.
Dark, damp, dank and a tad putrid along the lines of Etro's deplorable MdM. No go.
I'm perplexed that the same brilliant mind behind Vetiver Oriental and Chergui created this abomination of the damned. A hidoeusly vile blend that no amount of waxing philosophical or attempting to rationalize can cover up. Puke, gag, hurl and more puke. Me thinks Mr. Lutens may have been on the pipe while concocting this swill. The Bronx Zoo at the peak of summer.......the filthy, sweating hides of beasts. Very attractive. Please.

Very, very, very similar to Creed's REL, the components will indicate that as well. It wears like a charm. Gorgeous
Icy and clean. A perfect addition for a sweltering, oppressive Summer. Very Unisex suprisingly enough.
Awesome. One of my favorite Trumper's. Savory, warm and full-o-class.
Intoxicating Palisander wood from South America combines with myrrh and other spices to create utter rapture. Amazing
The best Patchouli presentation known to man. The rosewood rounds out the whole package perfectly. Delectable is an understatement
A citrus/woods blend from the heavens. Must be tried to comprehend fully. Longevity is decent as well, the bane of most in this category.
An impeccable combo of basil, woods and mellow spices. The basil does not deliver the face slapping assualt I'd braced for. Very subdued and tastefully presented, kind of an afterthought. I'm moving on it with nary a glance back. Glorious.
Best of the Bash's possessing a close similarity to Creed's Ambre Canelle with a tad more amber. Darker. The only one I'll even look at. the rest are approaching hideous.
Took a whiff and got bonked on the head with familiarity. Life Saver Candy. No way
Exceedingly different in a way I'm currently unsure of, yet I'm continually drawn to it. Sharp with tobacco and other jolting spices. My intrigue, however, will never venture beyond a decant, for I've not a kings ransom to spare for a bottle. Outrageous.........
