Incidentally, JaimeB, I asked my friend to bring back Exceptionnel which I find quite intoxicating. I remember your commenting on it.
Along the same lines as Rochas Désir, it's subtle, aromatic, a toned down version of Black XS with a little something extra, hard to define. The coffee sits on the skin into the middle notes giving it a smidgeon of "bitterness" or bite. The ginger and lavender work nicely to brighten it up.
It's a nice turn-to when I don't want too much smell (some might say that defeats the purpose though!).
JaimeB: Thanks for taking the time to answer.
I'll have my buddy check it out.
I would say go ahead and get it; it's really very nice, just not as tenacious as I would have wanted. The incense is really lovely, so if that's what you like, you'll be happy. Here in the US, a big bottle is $90, not bad for EdP. Enjoy!
