i had a funny experience where i sprayed this (as EdT version) onto a card and didn't care much for the topnotes, and kinda ruled it out immediately the first time i smelled it.
then i was at nordstrom's with a very helpful and knowedgable SA who listened to the stuff i liked and said "you have to try this - Boucheron EDP" and i was about to go "uh, no" but i just said "ok i'll give it another shot. this is different from the EdT, right?" she assured me it was. and so i did and decided it was nice, more amenable this time, but still didn't really have the OOMPH that i was looking for.
so then i was at the scentiments shop near my house and the nice man running the shop recommended it again, so i said - sure there must be something to this - and gave it another go. this time it struck me better, but i still wasn't too sure. went home after that and that night i kept smelling the back of my hand and it just kept getting better and better. by the time i went to sleep that night, i'd made up my mind that it'd be an immediate purchase the next day as soon as they opened shop. the rest, they say, is history.
the drydown on this one is to die for.
