  1. Re: What is you favorite Mancera Fragrance?

    Sand Aoud is pretty amazing, and Aoud Intensive Gold is also very nice. My bf also likes Aoud S very much.
    On a very sweet note, Roses Vanille is quite scrumptious, but I found it more girly.

    Re: Rudis by Nobile 1942

    For me, it is in the same line as Bullion, Gold Leather or, a bit less so, Journey Man. It smelled familiar at first, so it didn't wow me, but I think it will grow on me over time.

    Re: TF Oud Fleur

    I find it sensational. The rose is of an ultra-feminine, lipsticky nature but paired with the rather masculine Oud Wood-ish oud it just creates magic. Not at all your typical oud&rose combo.
