I for one, 2nd:
Windsor "Royalty sometimes shouts anyway" Intense
As my applications are really heavy everytime I wear it.
It is so very incredible, but an even stronger version would kill.
I know they claim it's not financially feasible already, due to the particular rose oil/stem resin absolute they use, hence limited editions.
I think it needs more of the topnotes it shares with Kilian's Prelude to Love, more Lime, and more of that Rose (De mai/Tuberose/actual Nuits De Young?) /green leafy floral heart OMG that TOP AND HEART........*runs for black atomizer* I actually now find the base on heavy applications(which is everytime I wear Windsor) quite good and substantial with the Dry Cedar/floral notes/Tonka.

Yes to Aventus base getting ramped up.
But I think we will get a very strong taste of the Aventus base + aventus apple in Spice and Wood.
Have you smelled "Prelude to Love", does it have more of this "band aid" note than Windsor, as they share quite a bit in their tops.
And Yeah, SMW has so much going for it, but it's too femme and shrill.
As good as all these would be, I still want no Creed Flanker more than Selection Verte Concentree, with a ton of that vegetal-sweet "viney/green/floral" basenote.
