    Re: Yatagan or L'anarchiste

    L'anarchist is more unique, far less dated smelling, and easier to wear, but Yatagan is definitely the superior fragrance and a classic. You decide.
  4. Re: I love L'Anarchiste, Troisieme and Pour un Homme. Will i Like Yatagan?

    As others have mentioned it's quite different from any of those 3. Though, of the ones you mentioned, it's closest to Troisieme Homme. It's definitely worth trying.
