It is tough, hednic. Thank you for your contribution.
I have worn Back to Black on numerous occasions and had a full wearing of Herod from a sample and really liked it. I think that the other consideration is that Herod is a 125ml bottle, more than double the juice of the By Kilian for a similar price.
The issue I am having is trying to justify my purchase of Herod! I currently have that, Pegasus, Chypre Palatin and Enchanted Forest in my 'Aus Liebe Zum Duft' shopping cart and keep going back and forth on whether or not Herod is necessary with Back to Black already in my collection.
I appreciate your comment RE the longevity as that is a serious consideration; what is the sprayer like on the full bottle?
Any other views welcomed and appreciated.
