Does anyone else have SMW batch A3511Z01 and would like to comment on it?
Well managed to drop by a couple of stores on my way to work and found the elusive batch 11Z01 and also the one I tried the other day 11U02.
So summaries from a hand of each (and yes they are different):
A3511U02 - Blackcurrant note dominant in a very ripe way (maybe too much so) - longevity/silage v.good (projection 6 hours - skin scent to 12 hours)
A3511Z01 - Silvery icy stone notes more dominant, blended better with black currant - nicest rendition of SMW I have smelt, including a carded sample I had and numerous samplings in-store. [longevity/silage good (projection 4+ hours - skin scent to 10 hours)
So, the Z01 has a little lower longevity, but not that much, and I prefer the more balanced notes in this, it's fresher, icier and nicer overall. Happy with this now to order on Cheapmells!
