    Re: Top Complimented Niche?

    To my surprise, Original Vetiver. I assume it's a hit with women who like clean frags.

    Tuscan Leather has garnered compliments also.
  2. Poll: Re: Chanel Egoiste vs Terre d'Hermes vs Dior Fahrenheit

    Egoiste is definitely sophisticated and classy. Fahrenheit possibly less so but is still a complete legend and is similarly strong in projection and longevity like many others in your wardrobe.

    Re: Would you reccomend L'Instant De Guerlain?

    Blind bought because it was cheap. Don't get the cocoa note at all, just a citrus/wood with poor longevity. Sample first, it's probably not what you're expecting in my opinion.
