    Intense version please, save the gimmicky bottles - I'm all about the juice and this stuff needs the volume turned up a couple of notches to be what it can/should be.
  8. Re: *NEW* Lanvin Éclat D'Arpège Pour Homme 2015

    This fragrance reminds me so much of the original 90s Hugo in its opening. Much lighter in its application than the heavy blast from Boss but very reminiscent of that fragrance.
