I tried Fougere by Pecksniff's some time ago. *It was pretty good.
Initially it smelled quite sharp on my skin - sometimes the Pecksniff's ones are like this - but it dried down to an almost mellow but green-ish smell.
Is Drakkar Noir a fougere? I tried this and nearly passed out (not in a good way) from the sheer strength of it. It made my eyes water.
It's not that I can't handle strong fragrances - I'm a huge fan of Antaeus and wear it regularly.
Apologies to those who love DNoir - but it frightened the bejesus out of me.
