    Re: Bal d`Afrique

    That's awesome! I wish I had the same results as you. While I still love the smell on this one, performance is weak for me. Also I do agree that this is relatively close to Vetiver Tonka.

    Chuck- when you get your Ciel Man I'd be very interested to hear your thoughts on it. I've been debating a FB for a long time - my only gripe is projection.
