I had been uncertain about Vibert's championing of Jaipur Homme (EdP, I think, in particular). There was something about it that just didn't work for me. I think it's got too much heliotrope and too little spice, relative to the heliotrope. Whatever it is, I thought that more than a small amount of heliotrope ruined a frag for me. Then I acquired Diesel Zero Plus in a swap. At first, I thought to myself, "oh great, another Jaipur Homme, probably not as good." But I figured I'd give it a chance. Half an hour or so later I began to realize that I was really enjoying it. And that continued for many hours. So, I'm not sure what lesson I learned, but I think the point is that at least for me, a frag with strong heliotrope needs to be balanced just right with spices for it to be enjoyable. Any thoughts on these kinds of frags?
