  4. Re: Stephane Humbert Lucas 777 - Your Views Please ?

    Taklamakan is in my top 10. Earthy. Gently herbal. Leather. Vanilla. Musk. Hint of Rose. Sweet balsamic and creamy labdanum. That’s my take. It’s very sophisticated.

    Hard to find, but Amouage Tribute attars fit your description to a tee--both red and black boxes, but I found black stronger. I was fortunate to try it in a sample pass.
