    Your post reminded me that I haven't worn this one in a long time, so I'm reacquainting myself as I type! I enjoy Duc de Vervins, and find it to be a fresh, greenish, woody fragrance. It comes across as rather "traditional" and often gets compared to Drakkar, which I've never tried. I think its equally wearable in formal as well as more casual settings. It used to be available at Perfumebay @ a discount, but appears to be sold out.

    Hope that helps a bit.

    Cheers,
    Jim

    I heard alot of good things about it, but I never brought it. I was thinking about buying it recently, but it seems that it has been discontinued.

    I tried it in a miniature, *bought a full bottle and quickly grew disenchanted. *

    *The 'green' *topnote evaporates almost at once, *and what's left could only be called a * "woods" *accord*by default. * This frag never gets off the ground. *It starts to develop and then puts the brakes on, * with some rather annoying notes I can't quite identify, *in an attempt to be well bred.*

    *It is meant to be sophisticated, manly, *mature, and 'suitable for the boardroom.' * **It succeeds to some extent *but not enough to overcome the '"So, what?" *factor. *This is simply not in the big leagues with Vintage Tabrome, * *Chanel PM, *Tuscany, *Santos or,- --- *well, you get the idea.

    Sorry to rain on anyone's parade. *Just my 2 cents

    It's quite similar to Drakkar Noir indeed.
    Very very mossy and dark!
