  1. Re: Letís talk Davidoff Zino itís been awhile.

    I am thinking of ordering PuH in the New Year and maybe Yatagan at the same time, I've landed so well on my feet with 3'eme Homme that I feel ready to "trust" that I will also like the others. ...

    And maybe also therefore why I find the Caron so relaxing and comforting, because of the softer French lavender used?

    It is Interlude.

    It is dark and spicy and to my mind sweet. The sweetness reminds ME of Le Male. Others say Reflections reminds them of Le Male.
    Reflections is much sweeter...
