    Re: Is Cedrat Boise a safe blind buy?

    I sampled it and didn't care for it, so I certainly wouldn't blind buy it....(or anything else that is of any significant cost).

    Re: Godolphin or Ombré Leather ?

    I don't own either one, but have sampled both of them.

    Of the two, I preferred Ombre Leather, as it simply smells better.

    I don't think I've been overly impressed by any Parfums de Marly...
