    Re: Terre or Voyage d'Hermes?

    Personally prefer TdH, but would advice wearing the one that smells better for you.
  10. Re: Frederic Malle - Carnal Flower Vs Portrait Of A Lady

    Own both and have worn both multiple times. If you like rose scents go for Portrait of a Lady and if you like your white florals (particularly tuberose) go for Carnal Flower.

    Chergui is crazy good for cooler weather. Prefer DH over DHI.
  14. Re: Jubilation XXV is not my favorite Amouage anymore

    Always felt that Jub XXV and friends come off a tad too strong in my climate, making them hard to enjoy. Love and own Dia, which is more subtle.

    ^Concur. Same as the 60ml tassel (EUR180 + shipping). You get a sample set if you didn't buy it initially. You should check with Claude from MDCI whether he still has any 100ml bottles.

    Re: New cologne for work.

    Disagree with TdH if you are working in a hospital environment as it is pretty strong. I would go with MI. If you have cash to burn, Aqua Universalis Forte.
