    Clairev/Ryn, putting that MFK on my test list, would like to sniff that one, how smokey is it? I don't care for tons of incense.

    Love and Tears layered with Grand Bal..there's a bit of light, animal funk in the Bal..not sure if I like that but I do get honey in the opening, like a honeyed, orange blossom. Can orange blossom...

    Fendi.

    Twolf, there was something in Briar Rose that kept me from wearing it much, Ineke musk? That same musk thing is in Field Notes too, more like dryer sheets in that one.

    Hugs to everyone!

    Re: i hate amen, will i like pure malt/pure havane?

    You may not love them, I too dislike A*men, Malt was better to me, though not something I'd want to have. Worth sampling both though. Both better than A*men, imo.
