I find V ph to be a rather strictly evening fragrance, though not necessary over-elegant. It resembles Body Kouros, but exchanges the spicy sexiness of the YSL for a more gourmandy dark fruitiness that works quite well. Check the reviews for both scents, many people recognise the "burnt cotton candy" character of both. I'm not into fruity top notes usually, but this one was very interesting. In the end I went for the BK though because it was getting discontinued and I was attracted to it's resinous spicyness. The V has good sillage/longevity as well.
