I've only tried Chergui, Santal Blanc, Muscs Kublai Khan, Arabie Sultan, Vetyver Oriental and Datura Noir.
The very popular Chergui, and the not as popular Datura Noir reminded me of honey with brown sugar and hay--or was that candied fruit wrapped in leather? I forgot rather quickly.
Chergui is the better balanced of the two, but still not for me.
Vetyver Oriental I compared unfaborably to Guerlian, L'Occitane and a couple of others. Not bad, I like it better than L'Artisan's.
Arabie Sultan? Amber with herbs, pass.
Santal Blanc is just not up to par. The only one I'd give a thumbs down, the rest are a "neutral" for me, though I can easily see how others would find these well constructed frags an easy 5 stars thumbs up.
(Now I've GOT to try Fumerie Turque and Santal de Mysore.
Or are these just honeyed tobacco and honeyed sandalwood?)
So, the winner in my book is ----drum roll, please.
A religious experience. Great for sweaty nights.
It's like making love in the mud with two beautiful, nubile, and wonderfully depraved nymphomaniacs.
