Isfarkand by Ormonde Jayne

Nice. A bit of a departure from more traditional fragrances and very nice and refreshing at first. I think it is hands-down nicer than Man, which gets lost in smokiness. It's fresh and I enjoyed the early pepper -- something I don't usually enjoy -- and it made me smile. Having said that, Guerlain Vetiver and Chanel Pour Monsieur destroy both of these. They're so much better, it's not even funny. I think the price point for the 50ml bottles is just absurd for what you get. Granted, the packaging is pretty enough to make you want to keep it around but, for the money, I'd stick to the "traditionals."

Not a thumbs down. Not a thumbs up, either, because I think it is far too expensive for what it is. I guess that leaves me neutral tending toward negative. Should be a new category!
