No, I detect it and I love it. It gives Rose 31
a nice depth and animalic intensity. I do not detect it as much in the Vetiver, but then I sampled that almost over a year ago and I don't really remember.
Remember newtrane: Even if you don't like Cetalox (if, in fact, that is
the note you are not liking), the 'effect' of it in the Le Labo fragrances is being created not just by this note but also by the combination with all of the other notes. Another fragrance might contain it and your nose won't detect it at all. Or maybe in yet another fragrance, your nose might detect it but because of the way it's blended, your nose will like
it. Perfumery is a complex art. Don't allow yourself to get too swayed by the notes that are contained in fragrances you don't like.
