I was going to start a thread on this today. Last night I broke out a sample of Ormande Man and endedu p washing it off! I had always been a bit skeptical of those who said this scent or that scent gave them an instant headache but this one did to me! It seemed to last and last forever so I finally just went to the sink and scrubbed. I love Ishfakand, however.
Does any one know if the composition has changed along with the name. I have sample of isfahan which I loved and ended up buying it (Isfarkand) but Isfarkand smells slightly different. I was wondering if anyone had the same experience.
I got a sample of Ormonde Man and I liked this one a lot more then Isfakand. Isfakand had pretty weak lasting power. Ormonde lasted me 6+ hours with just two sprays on the neck. Swiss Army is also long lasting.
I keep forgetting to ask Linda why the name changed.
The formula is the same for both the old Isfahan and the new Isfakand. linda makes the scents in batches, all by hand so sometimes the quality of the raw material does change a bit if the raw material batch is different. I know a while ago she bought some of the Black Hemlock and she nearly had a fit because the colour was slightly different from her previous batch.
I only have experience with swiss army. I really like this one a lot and it lasts forever. At first I was reluctant to try it because I had seen it discounted so much, but it's one of my staples and is pretty fool-proof/nice scent.
Re the name change - Isfahan (the place) has been in the news recently for its nuclear facility, I wondered if the fragrance name had been changes to separate it from that. I suppose it could be like having a fragrance called Sellafield (not sure what the US equivalent would be). It is a lovely scent,one of the samples that my partner doesn't wear often enough.
