Well said! And I think heperd
also said much the same in about 6 more direct but less diplomatic words somewhere up there ^.
For me, there are a few whose hype don't compute for me at all. These include:
TdH - simple, linear, synthetic. Maybe knowing it has all that Iso E Super predisposed me to find it so.
GIT - I'm in the "it's basically Cool Water" camp on this one. It's nice as far as that goes, but the people that say it's way better than CW are getting something I'm definitely not.
Pure Malt - I like the original, but this is a weaker A*Men with a hint of booze in the opening.
Aoud Cuir d'Arabie - I find this one repellent and plasticky
Bulgari Black - the tire note is kinda cool, but once the novelty of that wears off I find the core accord to be unique, but loses its appeal before long
