I got a sample of Guerlain Derby reissue. This was after recommendation from a thread here at BN and also reading of in top 10 masculines of Lucia Turen.
I loved the middle and basenotes, but the top is too powdery for me with some incense (jasmine?) in there too. Those notes really turn me off.
A couple questions:
- Is the reissue more powdery than the original? I can't believe this would make top 10 lists, but then maybe others like that scent more than me.
- Are there any catch phrases I should look for to avoid powder notes?
