Which of the other Private Blend scents are the most promising. I have seen kudos to Tobacco Vanille, Oud Wood, and Tuscan Leather; my curiosity was also piqued by Black Violet, Bois Rouge and Japan Noir. I stopped before sniffing Noir de Noir, but I'd like to check that one out, too.
Any wisdom on the others I mentioned?
I was in SF on Wednesday and I couldn't believe how hot it was.
My favs after MB are:
1 Oud Wood, A very Europeanized version of a Montale. Oud lite, oud done right!
2 Black Violet, I'm not a violet fan, but this has a nice dark, incensey note.
3 Tobacco Vanille, Love this one, but I think it would get boring quickly as it is what it is, a glorious pouch tobacco accord and nothing more.
I think these beauties are over priced, though.
