  1. Re: Can I go wrong blind buying....Chergui, Tom Ford

    No matter how many good things people have to say about a fragrance, I always sample first. There are so many times that I have sampled a hyped fragrance and was disappointed. I wouldn't recommend...

    Rocky Mountain Woods is a nice fragrance and I DO like it but it isn't the kind of earthy that I'm referring to. By earthy I don't necessarily mean woody.

    I definitely prefer the EDP. It comes off as more smooth and natural although you will smell more orange peel. I think it is worth the difference in price.
